Wentz left the game with a head injury in the first quarter after defensive end Jadeveon Clowney made a helmet-to-helmet hit on him. But he was tipped to have another run at leading Philadelphia Eagles to the Super Bowl in 2020.

Watson finished as the league’s passing yards leader last season while Wilson threw for 4,200+ passing yards and 40+ passing touchdowns as the Seahawks made the Playoffs once again.

In comparison, Wentz threw for 2,600+ passing yards and had 16 passing touchdowns. But embarrassingly, Wentz also threw 15 interceptions.

But his below-par displays from 2020 could be a consequence of his deteriorating relationship with his former coach.
