Carson Wentz sets rookie record for most attempts without interception

Entering today’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz was just 11 attempts shy of breaking Tom Brady’s record for most pass attempts without an interception to begin a career. In the second quarter of the game, he surpassed that mark.

Wentz has been great for the Eagles so far this year and it looks like he is well on his way to taking the team to a 3-0 mark. He is currently 16-20 with 161 yards and a touchdown in the first half, pushing his total attempts number to 91 on the year, nine better than Brady’s record set in 2001.

The Eagles lead the Steelers 13-3 late in the first half and it certainly looks like Wentz has a chance to pull out a huge win to get his team to 3-0.

I think the City of Brotherly Love is pretty happy with their team’s decision to trade up into the top two of the draft in April.

Keep in mind, Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has 75 attempts without an interception and could break or tie this record against the Chicago Bears tonight.
