The Philadelphia Eagles are getting ready for Super Bowl LII in Minneapolis on February 4 against the New England Patriots and their injured starting quarterback, Carson Wentz, has the number one selling jersey in the NFL, according to NFLShop.com.
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.
