In just three seasons, Carson Wentz has gone from a young, promising future star to an actual star in the NFL.

Most objective NFL fans (not looking at you Cowboy fans) would go through their top 10 QB list and have Wentz there.

NFL players have the same belief as they voted Wentz the #3 overall player on the 2017 NFL Top 100 list.

As the Eagles head to New Orleans to take on the 8-1 Saints, Wentz is set to take on another star QB, and future hall of famer in Drew Brees.

In three seasons, how has Wentz fared against opposing star quarterbacks?

Total record: 6-4

Wentz total statline: 2,672 YDS 16 TD 6 INT

Opposing star QB total statline: 2,554 YDS 15 TD 5 INT

Overall not a bad resume for Wentz against other star QBs. A winning record, more yards and touchdowns. The Eagles defense plays a big part in the opposing signal caller’s numbers but even in 2016 when Wentz had virtually no help on offense, he has played up to the level of competition from the star quarterback on the other side of the field.
