Carson Wentz 'Promised' to Give Jake Elliott Game Check Ahead of Game-Winning FG

Zac Wassink@ ColumnistSeptember 26, 2017

It appears Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz verbally wrote a check he now has to make out following Sunday's last-second victory over the New York Giants at Lincoln Financial Field.

With the score tied at 21 and only a few ticks left on the clock, rookie placekicker Jake Elliott prepared for a potential game-winning 61-yard field goal attempt.  

Wentz, who was wearing a microphone, discussed the situation with those standing around him on the sideline ahead of the play. 

"This guy's a superhero if he makes this," the signal-caller stated. "I'll friggin' give him my paycheck. I'll give him my game check." 

The first-year pro delivered, as he booted the ball over the crossbar to lift the Eagles to a 27-24 win as time expired. 

Mike Garafolo of NFL Network provided an exact figure for what Wentz owes Philadelphia's new football hero:

Perhaps Elliott will let Wentz keep the 71 cents. 

Wentz quickly found out the internet never forgets and sometimes adds pressure to promises. 

Looks like Elliott's got $31,764.71 coming his way. 

We can add more winners to Wentz's promise to hand over his game check to Elliott. According to Philadelphia Inquirer reporter Jeff McLane, the Eagles teammates decided to donate the earnings to charity.

Everyone likes a good ending, and the money will be put to good use.
