Wentz era off to soaring start in Philly


LOS ANGELES: Rookie quarterback Carson Wentz had a stellar National Football League debut by upstaging Cleveland’s Robert Griffin as the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Browns 29-10 in the season opener on Sunday (Monday in Manila). Wentz was promoted from No. 3 quarterback to starter last Monday, and the number two overall pick in April’s draft looked every bit like the franchise player the Eagles were hoping for. Wentz completed 22 of 37 passes for 278 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions as he outdid veteran Griffin, who suffered a sprained shoulder.
