Later in the second quarter, Hurts took a third-down snap - with Wentz flexed out at wide receiver - and handed the ball off to Miles Sanders, who was unable to convert.

Though there was speculation that Hurts may get an extended chance to run the offense if Wentz had a slow start against the Seattle Seahawks on Monday Night Football, it's been more of the same in the first half of a deflating performance for the Eagles. Wentz is 7/17, and Hurts hasn't really been given an opportunity to build any sort of momentum, leaving you to wonder what the purpose of him coming into the game at all was.
