Wentz is only the fifth quarterback in NFL history to attempt at least 550 passes as a rookie. The other four quarterbacks to do so as first-year players are Peyton Manning, Derek Carr, Andrew Luck and Sam Bradford. Wentz finished with the highest quarterback rating (79.3) of that group.
As good as Wentz was a rookie, he’ll be facing some stiff competition for Rookie of the Year honors. Joey Bosa of the San Diego Chargers, Deion Jones of the Atlanta Falcons and the Dallas Cowboys dynamic duo of Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott are also in the running for the award.
The winner will be announced on February 4, the day before Super Bowl LI, at the 6th Annual NFL Honors.
