Eagles relying too much on Carson Wentz's passing

PHILADELPHIA (AP) After getting Carson Wentz help in the offseason, the Philadelphia Eagles are still relying too much on their quarterback.

Wentz handed the ball off only 13 times out of 69 plays in a 27-20 loss at Kansas City on Sunday. He threw 46 passes, got sacked six times and had four scrambles.

"You don't ever want to throw the ball that many times. You want to have more of a balance," coach Doug Pederson said Monday. "The run game is a part of that. But at the same time you end up doing sort of what the game dictates late in the game. And do I want him to drop back that many times? No."
