PHILADELPHIA — Carson Wentz eluded defenders, scrambled, threw his body around and played the same way he has throughout his career. He’s all the way back. Playing his first game since he tore two ligaments in his left knee last Dec. 10, Wentz had no fear and no hesitation, even on a wet, soggy field. He threw a touchdown pass to Dallas Goedert on his first drive and engineered a go-ahead score in the fourth quarter as the Philadelphia Eagles held on for a 20-16 victory over the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday.
