If this was a pitching duel, the baseball equivalent would be throwing one team’s ace out onto the field to face another team’s middle relief. NFL quarterback duels aren’t always perceived the same way, but they are discussed. On Sunday at Lincoln Finacial Field, the Chicago Bears visit the hometown Philadelphia Eagles, and that quarterback duel looks like this. A former MVP candidate in Carson Wentz mans one offense while a man fighting to save his job, Mitch Trubisky, mans the other.
On paper, it seems like this should be a game the Eagles should be able to do enough in to win.
