Carson Wentz Has More Touchdowns Than Russell Wilson

Written by Tony Ghaul

Russell Wilson was supposed to be the Denver Broncos answer at QB. They traded for him, and paid him a lot of money. The Broncos are 3-8, and Wilson has struggled this season. He has thrown eight touchdown passes and five interceptions through 10 games, leading the worst offense in the league. The offense ranks dead last in terms of scoring offense with just 14.7 points per game and Wilson is having the worst season of his career by far.

NFL analyst Sam Monson of Pro Football Focus points out that Wilson has been so bad that he as yet to even out pace a QB who hasn’t played a single down in weeks.

“Carson Wentz has 2 more passing TDs than Russell Wilson this season and he hasn’t played since Week 6 and has been benched,” Monson said on Twitter. “Also, for those keeping track, Wilson still has comfortably more bathrooms in his house than TDs this season.”

If Carson Wentz doesn’t take another snap this year, he ends the season completing 144 of 232 passes for 1,489 yards, 10 touchdown passes, and six interceptions. He also took 23 sacks, fumbled six times and rushed for 79 yards. Washington had a record of 2-4 with him behind center.
