The Eagles dominated the Detroit Lions on Sunday and Halloween night became even more enjoyable after Carson Wentz logged every snap for the Colts in a loss to the Tennessee Titans.

Week 8 of the NFL season offered another opportunity to track former Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz and the Miami Dolphins as Philadelphia looks to snag three high first-round picks this spring.

When the Eagles traded Wentz in the offseason, the team received a conditional second-round rounder in 2022 that would become a first-round pick if the quarterback takes 75% of the Colts’ regular-season offensive snaps or 70% if they make the playoffs.

We’re tracking the quarterback snaps as Philadelphia marches towards a third first-round pick.

Wentz vs. Titans

Indianapolis Colts quarterback Carson Wentz (2) looks to pass Sunday, Oct. 31, 2021, during a game against the Tennessee Titans at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis.

Wentz was 27-51 for 185-yards and 3 touchdowns, with 2 interceptions in Sunday’s loss to the Titans. More important, he logged every snap at quarterback.

How it impacts the Eagles through 8 weeks

In the Week 2 loss to the Rams, Wentz logged 62 of a possible 67 snaps, playing 93% of the Colts snaps. In Week 1, 3, 4,5, 6, 7, and this afternoon in Week 8 against Tennessee, the quarterback logged 100 percent.

Through 8 weeks of action, Wentz has played close to 99% of the teams’ snaps and the weekly stress of potential injury concerns has dissipated.

According to Tankathon, if the season ended today, the Dolphins slot (1-7) would be tied with the Texans (1-7), for the No. 2 overall pick behind the winless Lions. The Colts would pick at No. 10 overall and as the Eagles (No. 9) continue to retool and rebuild, they’ll have a nice package of assets to build with.
