Eagles' Carson Wentz suffers season-ending torn ACL

Carson Wentz centre reportedly tore his ACL in the third quarter of Sunday's afternoon game against the Los Angeles Rams

In 2013, Foles threw for 27 touchdowns and two interceptions for the Eagles in Chip Kelly's offense, but he's thrown 23 touchdowns and 20 interceptions in four seasons since. Now, it's up to Nick Foles to deliver Philadelphia its first Super Bowl title.

The Philadelphia Eagles suffered their doomsday scenario on Sunday when Carson Wentz tore his ACL while trying to run for a touchdown against the Los Angeles Rams. It's just been the next-man-up mentality and that's going to continue. He also vowed to come back stronger from the injury.

Wentz was hit hard as he dived into the end zone on a play that was called back because of holding.

The quarterback stayed on the field for the ensuing four plays, throwing a touchdown pass to Alshon Jeffery to give the Eagles a brief lead, before being evaluated in the team's medical tent and sent to the locker room for further examinations.

"We still have something special", Wentz said.

There were other teams that used multiple quarterbacks in championship seasons, among them Miami (Bob Griese and Earl Morrall), Dallas (Craig Morton and Roger Staubach), Pittsburgh (Joe Gilliam and Terry Bradshaw), and the Raiders in Oakland (Dan Pastorini and Jim Plunkett) and Los Angeles (Marc Wilson and Plunkett). "And, you know if there's ever an opportunity for me as a head football coach to rally the troops, you know now might be the time".

It was Wentz's 33rd TD pass, setting the team's single-season record. Foles spent a year with the Rams, then a season in Kansas City with Pederson as offensive coordinator, before returning to Philadelphia as a free agent this season. It's been 17 years since Baltimore Ravens quarterback Trent Dilfer rode the coattails of Ray Lewis and Jamal Lewis toward a Super Bowl title, and it's been 15 since Brad Johnson played second fiddle to the Tampa 2 scheme that won coach Jon Gruden his first and only Super Bowl title. I want him to speak his mind just like Carson would, and we keep going.

"He's a highly intelligent football player", Pederson said. Pederson said he hasn't spoken to personnel boss Howie Roseman about adding a third quarterback yet.
