Eagles, rookie take step up
PHILADELPHIA — Pittsburgh came into Sunday 19-2 against rookie quarterbacks since 2004. But Philadelphia's Carson Wentz is no ordinary rookie. Everyone is jumping on the Wentz wagon in Philadelphia. And he was the No. 3 quarterback until Sam Bradford was traded to Minnesota just eight days before the season opener. "What he's doing is special and it's a testament to his preparation and demeanor," Eagles safety Malcolm Jenkins said of Wentz, who outdueled Steelers counterpart Ben Roethlisberger. Steelers coach Mike Tomlin: "We lost just about every aspect of that one. It was a poor performance by us, and I mean all of us. It starts with me. They outcoached us. They outplayed us." Wentz became the first rookie in league history without an interception in his first 100 pass attempts to begin a career. The Steelers are 0-9 in Philadelphia since their previous win here in 1965.
