    PHILADELPHIA -- Carson Wentz was so impressive in the film room and on the practice field that he earned a promotion from No. Nike Roshe Two . 3 quarterback to starter.Time to show his stuff in actual games.The No. 2 overall draft pick will make his NFL debut Sunday when the Philadelphia Eagles host the Cleveland Browns.Wentz threw 24 passes in the preseason before he injured his ribs and missed the last three games. Still, he was elevated to No. 1 after the Eagles traded Sam Bradford to Minnesota.The things that we saw in practice, just the plays that he has been able to make, the plays going against even our starting defense, just the way he has handled things, the way he calls plays in the huddle, the way he can just spit out the verbiage, his athleticism, the way he can move and scramble and make some plays with his legs, I just felt so comfortable putting him in this spot, rookie coach Doug Pederson said.Wentz will face a team that passed up a chance to draft him by trading the pick to Philadelphia.That is all in the past, Wentz said. Im excited Im here in Philadelphia, and Im ready to go for Week 1.Robert Griffin III will play his first game since 2014 and becomes the 25th quarterback to start for the Browns since 1999. RG3 is trying to resurrect his career in Cleveland after a difficult finish in Washington.Just excited to go out and play with these guys, Griffin said. We have an opportunity to do something special.Here are some things to know about the Browns-Eagles matchup:PROTECTING WENTZ: The projected starting offensive line will be out there for the Eagles, led by eight-time Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters and right tackle Lane Johnson, who said last month hes expecting a 10-game suspension for violating the leagues substance abuse policy. Left guard Allen Barbre, center Jason Kelce and right guard Brandon Brooks round out the line.Weve been communicating and working together cohesively since the spring, so we expect to go out and there and play well, have success, Kelce said. It doesnt matter who the starting quarterback is. We have to do our jobs and keep him clean. That doesnt change. But, sure, its great that were all together for this game.WIN-WIN: The Browns own Philadelphias first-round pick in 2017 as part of the trade for No. 2, so beating the Eagles is a double win because they want them to finish as low as possible in the standings.NEW DEFENSE DEBUTS: After playing three seasons in a 3-4 system, the Eagles have switched to a 4-3 scheme under new defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz. The unit showed flashes of dominance in the preseason, and the front four led by Fletcher Cox have potential to wreak havoc, harass quarterbacks and force turnovers.WOEPENERS: The Browns have lost an NFL-record 11 straight openers. Theyre 1-16 in Week 1 since their expansion rebirth in 1999, with their only win coming against Baltimore in 2004 under coach Butch Davis. Seven of those 16 losses have come by five points or less, and includes a 17-16 defeat against the Eagles in 2012.LOOKING BACK: Pederson has history with the Browns. He became their third starting quarterback following Clevelands return to the league when he replaced an injured Tim Couch in 2000. Pederson led the Browns to a 19-11 win over New England, snapping a seven-game losing streak and giving Cleveland its only win in the final 13 games.It was almost like a relief, a weight, a burden off your shoulders, Pederson said this week. It was exciting obviously to get that win finally and just sort of the excitement that the guys felt walking off of that field, because I remember, too, that team that year was decimated with injury and there were a lot of new faces in Cleveland.---AP Sports Writer Tom Withers in Cleveland contributed to this report.---AP NFL website: Rob Maaddi on Twitter: Roshe One Sale .C. -- Al Jefferson joked that he feels he can score from anywhere on the court. Nike Roshe One Print . Siddikur, whose previous win on the circuit came in Brunei three years ago, finished his bogey-free round with a birdie on the 18th for a total of 17-under 199. Indias Shiv Chowrasia, who has finished runner-up in this tournament twice, was in second place after a 66. . -- For the first time in two months, an opponent was standing up to Alabama. The Chicago Sky are banged up and likely will be without superstar Elena Delle Donne when they host the New York Liberty on Friday at Allstate Arena.Delle Donne, the WNBAs reigning MVP, had surgery Tuesday on her thumb on her right shooting hand. She is listed as day-to-day, and Sky coach Pokey Chatman has not indicated any time frame from Delle Donnes return from an injury she suffered in a loss to the Washington Mystics on Sept. 7.The Sky have regrouped without their star to win the last two games, including a dramatic victory over the defending-champion and first-place Minnesota Lynx. In the final seconds of regulation against Minnesota on Tuesday, Chicago guard Courtney Vandersloot intentionally missed her second free throw, got the rebound, drew a foul and hit two more free throws to force overtime, where the Sky prevailed 98-97.We were trying to fight for fourth place, Chicago guard Cappie Pondexter told reporters after the dramatic win.With two games remaining, the Sky (17-15) are in fourth place, but only by one-half game over the Atlanta Dream and oone full game over the Indiana Fever. Nike Roshe One DMB. he Liberty (21-12) have already locked up the third overall seed and home-court advantage in the first round of the postseason, but could use a positive performance in their final game of the regular season.New York dropped three of its last four games, but defeated the Sky in both previous meetings this season. Most recently, MVP candidate Tina Charles poured in 29 points in an 88-85 victory over the Sky on July 8. The victory gave coach Bill Laimbeer his 200th career win, becoming the seventh coach in WNBA history to reach the mark.Charles leads the Liberty in points (21.5 per game), rebounds (9.9) and assists (3.8).Pondexter picked up some of the scoring load left behind by Delle Donne. Pondexter had 24 points Tuesday and is averaging 12.9 points on the season. She is battling a shoulder injury, though, adding to the Skys injury woes, but is expected to play against the Liberty.
