Philadelphia, PA - Carson Wentz won't soon forget the year 2016.

He won a national championship, got drafted with the 2nd overall pick, and ended up starting all 16 games for the Philadelphia Eagles.

His rookie season wrapped up on Sunday, with a 2nd straight victory, beating Super Bowl contender Dallas.

Wentz's two touchdown performance capped off a record setting season in which he completed the most passes by a rookie in NFL history.

Wentz and the Eagles are now looking towards the offseason, with much higher aspirations for the 2017 season.

Eagles wide receiver Jordan Matthews wants to get going on those aspirations right away, he said.

"I wanna go to the Fargodome and throw, I've heard that place is pretty cool," Matthews said. "We can go to downtown Fargo and kick it. We always go to California and--it's cool--but, you know, it's real expensive and guys are all across the city where as I'm like, bro--we gotta get like one cabin out there (in Fargo). I know they got cabins and, you know, that's it."

"He wants to go to Fargo, North Dakota real bad," Wentz replied. "I told him I could take you right now, but you'll never wanna come back."
