Video: Eagles’ Carson Wentz finds Alshon Jeffery in the end zone for TD vs. Packers
Boom, there goes the dynamite. After a 66-yard kick return by running back Miles Sanders, the Philadelphia Eagles got onto the board for the first time on Thursday via a Carson Wentz touchdown pass to Alshon Jeffery.

Wentz found Jeffery out of the outside from a tight bunch formation. The wide receiver ran a slant route while Nelson Agholor and Mack Hollins ran to the outside to create space and deception to get Jeffery open. Just like that, Wentz had a six-yard touchdown to his name. After a Jake Elliot point after attempt, the Eagles cut down Green Bay’s lead to three.
Jeffery caught it, unlike Agholor.
Wentz and Co. must continue driving for the 1-2 Eagles to beat a 3-0 Packers team in Lambeau.
Luckily, a second-quarter touchdown will keep them going against a surging defense and an Aaron Rodgers led offense.
