Philadelphia Eagles fans were fearing the worst when they traded starting quarterback Sam Bradford to the Minnesota Vikings just days before the start of the 2016 NFL season.

With Bradford departing for the NFC North, the Vikings turned to their rookie, Carson Wentz. And it's gone pretty well.

The former North Dakota State star has gone from a project piece to starter and it's gone incredibly well. So well, in fact, that Wentz is in a league all of his own.

Apparently, according to Randall Liu of the NFL, Wentz is the first ever rookie since 1970 to start 2-0 whilst not throwing any interceptions.

Wentz was exemplary on Monday Night Football, leading the Eagles offense exceptionally well as they overcame the Chicago Bears.

He may have finished with only 190 yards and a touchdown but Wentz looked like a seasoned pro out there, commanding the up-tempo offense that Philadelphia utilized to great effect against the Bears.

Wentz wasn't scared of getting hit, reacted superbly well in picking up blitzes and diced his way through the Bears on 21 of 34 completed passes. The Eagles really may have a star in the making.
