Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz offered his submission for top offensive play of the opening weekend of the 2017 NFL season early in Sunday's contest versus the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field.

Roughly three minutes into the first quarter of the game between NFC East rivals, the second-year pro danced his way around multiple would-be tacklers in the pocket before launching a pass down the left seam.

Wide receiver Nelson Agholor reeled in the throw, and he then shrugged off Washington's D.J. Swearinger for a 58-yard touchdown and Philadelphia's first score of the campaign.

The first half wasn't all sunshine and rainbows for Wentz, however, as he tossed a pick-six halfway through the second quarter.
