By now we have all watched just about every angle of the Jake Elliott field goal. Whether it’s from what we saw on TV, fan reactions, or even a Titanic theme induced tear-jerker, it’s simply a moment that will go down in history. For Elliott, the heroic field goal has also earned him a nice payday, courtesy of his quarterback.
Carson Wentz was “Mic’d up” for the week three showdown against New York, and the moments before the kick makes for must-watch content.

Wentz told linebacker Kamu Grugier-Hill that if Elliott makes the kick, he would give him his game check. That total comes to $31,765.
The star quarterback also took to social media to show just how excited he was about the game winning field goal.

A gracious gesture by a generous quarterback. What more could you want from the face of the franchise?
