Wentz and the Commanders narrowly snuck past the Chicago Bears 12-7 in a defensive slugfest on Thursday night at Soldier Field. The victory snapped a four-game losing skid for the Commanders, who improved to 2-4 on the year.
At the post-game conference, Wentz donned a camouflage jacket and a fancy hat. As you could guess, social media had some awesome reactions to his outfit of choice.
Wentz completed 12 of 22 pass attempts for 99 yards. He was sacked three times but didn’t commit any turnovers, as Washington leaned on its defense and rushing game (128 rushing yards on the ground) to end its losing skid.
It’s been an interesting past 24 hours for Wentz and the Commanders. On Thursday morning, ESPN published a bombshell report which claims that Commanders owner Dan Snyder has “dirt” on commissioner Roger Goodell and several NFL team owners.
The report stated that Snyder has information that could “blow up” the league, Goodell and team owners. Snyder apparently would use this against them if they try forcing him to sell the football team.
ESPN’s report also claimed that it was Snyder who pushed for the Commanders to acquire Wentz from the Philadelphia Eagles. But after the game, Washington head coach Ron Rivera passionately denied the claim and defended his quarterback.
It’s been a frustrating year for the former Philadelphia Eagles star signal-caller. Wentz is completing 62.1 percent of his passes for 1,489 yards and 10 touchdowns against six interceptions, but he’s already taken 23 sacks and has fumbled six times.
It certainly wasn’t pretty on Thursday night at Soldier Field, but the Commanders found a way. Rivera and company will look to piece together their first winning streak of the year when they host the Green Bay Packers in Week 7.
