Three Carson Wentz touchdown passes helped the Philadelphia Eagles overcome the Carolina Panthers in a narrow 28-23 victory.

A late charge from the Panthers in the fourth quarter was not enough to see off the Eagles, with Cam Newton throwing three interceptions.

The quarterback helped the Panthers claim the first touchdown of the night with a 16-yard run but he suffered a hard fall late in the game after a dramatic leap near the line fell just short of the end zone.

Wentz, meanwhile, threw for 222 yards and a trio of touchdowns passes to Zach Ertz in the second and third quarters and Nelson Agholor in the fourth.

A final drive which would have seen a Carolina victory did not come off, turning the ball over at midfield, and ending the game at 28-23 to keep the Eagles at the top of the NFC.
