Wentz had an amazing sophomore season in the NFL leading the Eagles to the best record in the NFC and finishing second in the NFL with 34 touchdown passes. His performance had him in contention for the NFL MVP until he went down with a knee injury in a Week 14 game against the Los Angeles Rams.

Wentz will be with his team in Minneapolis, but unfortunately, will have to watch from the sidelines as backup quarterback Nick Foles tries to lead the Eagles to their first ever Super Bowl title.
