No. 1, No. 2 QBs meet Dec. 10

The Associated Press

Go ahead and mark down Dec. 10 on the calendar. That’s when Jared Goff, the No. 1 overall pick in last year’s draft, and Carson Wentz, who went one spot later, are scheduled to face each other for the first time in the NFL.

By the looks of things, it should be quite a quarterback matchup between a pair of guys playing at an elite level. This past Sunday, they became the first QBs drafted Nos. 1 and 2 in the same year to each throw four TD passes on the same day.

What’s more, neither was intercepted. And each led his team to precisely 51 points. Goff’s Los Angeles Rams beat the New York Giants 51-17 , and Wentz’s Philadelphia Eagles defeated the Denver Broncos 51-23 .

“The No. 1 thing you can judge a quarterback on is wins and losses,” Goff said, “and right now we’re 6-2, so I feel good.”

Whether or not that truly is the best statistical measure of the position, he and Wentz — they share an agent and are pals who trade texts — have their clubs at the top of the NFC. While the Rams lead the West division, the Eagles not only are atop the East, they are pacing the entire league at 8-1 heading into their bye week.”
