STREAKS, STATS AND NOTES - Carson Wentz is one of only three NFL rookie QBs since 1960 to have at least 275 yards passing, two TDs and no INTs in season opener. Robert Griffin III in 2012 and Jim Kelly in 1986 were others. ... Wentz's 278 yards passing were fourth most by Eagles rookie; record is 381 by Nick Foles in 2012. ... Wentz posted 101.0 passer rating, highest mark by Eagles rookie since John Reaves (104.4) in 1972 vs. St. Louis. ... WR Jordan Matthews has four straight games with at least 50 yards receiving and one TD, longest streak for Eagles since Terrell Owens (four games) in 2004. ... DT Fletcher Cox has five sacks in last five games. ... P Donnie Jones averaged 49.2 yards - 39.2 net - on six punts in Week 1. ... TE Zach Ertz has at least five catches and 50 yards receiving in five straight games, but likely won't play because of left rib displacement. ... CB Leodis McKelvin (left hamstring strain) is unlikely to play. ... Bears QB Jay Cutler got sacked five times and hit 13 more in opener. ... WR Kevin White had three catches for 34 yards in NFL debut after missing rookie season with stress fracture in left shin. ... Three-time Pro Bowl LG Josh Sitton started opener one week after signing with Bears following surprise cut from Green Bay. ... WR Alshon Jeffery aiming for fourth straight game with at least 100 yards or TD catch. Jeffery had four receptions for 105 yards in opener. Fantasy Tip: Philadelphia's defense might be worth considering because Bears' offensive line is still trying to jell. If Cutler gets protection he needs, Jeffery could be in for big game - he might be matched against seventh-round pick Jalen Mills with McKelvin out.
