In their final NFL regular season games in 2023, Wentz and Stick performed admirably



Bismarck, North Dakota – In the final week of the NFL season, two quarterbacks with ties to North Dakota started: Carson Wentz, who started in place of Matthew Stafford after Stafford was rested against the San Francisco 49ers, and Easton Stick, who continues to start while Justin Herbert is out for the Los Angeles Chargers due to injury.

After graduating from Century High School, Wentz signed with the Rams in November of last year. He had previously played three snaps in relief of Stafford toward the end of the Rams’ Week 12 victory over the Arizona Cardinals.

With two passing touchdowns and 163 yards of completion, Wentz had a fantastic day for the Rams on Sunday. Wentz also had success with his legs, scoring a touchdown on 17 rushes for 56 yards. He also assisted wide receiver Puka Nacua in shattering the records for most receiving yards and touchdowns in a rookie year. At Levi Stadium, the Rams defeated the 49ers 21 to 20.

Los Angeles was defeated 13–12 by the Kansas City Chiefs, as Easton Stick was unable to lead the Chargers to victory. Stick completed 28 passes for 258 yards on 47 attempts. On 13 carries, the former Bison star tallied 77 rushing yards.

Stick and the Chargers are out of the running for the playoffs, while Wentz and the Rams secured a wild-card berth for this season.
