Carson Wentz wears "Romans 5:8" cleats prior to Eagles win over Broncos

On Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field, Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz tossed four touchdowns in helping Philadelphia beat the Broncos 51-23.

Wentz leads the NFL in touchdown passes, and the Eagles have the best record in the NFL at 8-1.

Prior to the game, Wentz sported his pregame camouflage cleats, featuring Romans 5:8 on the inside of the shoe, and AO1 on the outside.

AO1 stands for Audience of One, the name of which Wentz’s foundation was named after.

On their website, it states:

The Carson Wentz AO1 Foundation was launched in 2017 and its mission is to demonstrate the love of God by providing opportunities and support for the less fortunate and those in need.

Romans 5:8 says: “But God showed his great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners.”

In October, Wentz wore similar cleats, but with pink colors to highlight Breast Cancer Awareness month.

Wentz and the Eagles enter their bye week at 8-1 with a divisional matchup looming against the rival Dallas Cowboys at Jerry’s World on November 19.
