Carson Wentz Snap Count Update

Carson Wentz threw for 400 yards and two touchdowns last night, and the Colts still lost.

Hard to pin it on the former Eagles quarterback. Yeah, he did lose a fumble in the first half, but put his team up 22-3 before Lamar Jackson went into beast mode. Indy had a field goal blocked and then missed a second field goal, which would have won them the game.

The good thing is that Carson is staying on the field, and has now logged 98% of the snaps this season:

As you know, the Colts’ second-round draft pick conveys to the Eagles as a first rounder if Wentz plays 75% of the snaps this year, or 70% with a playoff appearance. That second scenario is looking unlikely as the Colts fall to 1-4, but unless Indy sits Wentz to preserve that first round pick, it’s looking pretty good for the Birds, who will receive a selection that is going to be higher than we thought.

Knock on wood. No jinx.
