With Markus Golden now done for the season, Martin now becomes a starter. They are. The Eagles have four wins in five games.
The Eagles have a quick turnaround this week, as they travel to Carolina to play the Panthers on Thursday night at 8:25 p.m.
The reason for the rather unexpected hot start goes beyond Wentz. Cam Newton is completing 68.3 percent of his passes for 1,237 yards, eight touchdowns and five interceptions.
The 2015 first-round pick from Southern Cal had 59 catches for 648 yards and three touchdowns on his resume heading into the 2017 campaign.
"You hope for something like that", said Wentz, a Bismarck Century High School graduate.
I will be the first one to admit that I expected this defense to suffer.

And the Eagles are best in the NFL in doing that, averaging a league-best 35:32 in time of possession. And the special teams showed again on Sunday (76-yard punt return, blocked field goal) why they're considered one of the best units in football under the guidance of Dave Fipp. Zach Ertz leads all National Football League tight ends with 26 catches for 326 yards for Philadelphia, which has scored at least 20 points in eight consecutive games - the longest current streak in NFL.
With Wentz, the Eagles have come to find out anything is possible. The slump ended Sunday.
After some mid-season struggles during his rookie season, McNabb suggested a patient approach towards Wentz's development.
"Carson Wentz did a heck of a job finding guys for touchdowns", Cardinals coach Bruce Arians said. "We've missed a couple down the field".
"I'm just happy for the success that he's having". "I've been able to share that with him".
Smith signed to be the home run threat for the offense, and he celebrated accordingly.
October baseball hit the gridiron on Sunday.
Agholor had his chance at the plate in the third quarter. This is not to say this will happen but given the Arizona Cardinals schedule and how the standing now shape up, don't count them out in 2017 just yet. Center Jason Kelce handled two defenders to give Wentz time to recognize that Agholor had a safety covering him.
However, just a few seconds later, the game was over as a contest after Nelson Agholor's 72-yard touchdown grab. He even fell backward in the end zone as a tribute to DeSean Jackson. He's been great through the first four games, showing real progression and looking like a monster leader. "It's going to be a great year".
