Carson Wentz vowed to give his paycheck to kicker if the Eagles won, moments before game-winning 61-yard field goal

The Philadelphia Eagles beat the New York Giants in thrilling fashion on Sunday when kicker Jake Elliott hit a 61-yard field goal as time expired.

However, the win may not be the only thing Elliott gets to enjoy from the moment — he may be receiving some extra money from Carson Wentz.

On Tuesday, the Eagles released a mic’d-up segment from Week 3 featuring Wentz, and it captured Wentz saying he would donate his game check to Elliott if he hit the field goal.

“He’s a hero if he makes this,” Wentz said, adding, “I’ll give him my game check. I’ll give him my game check if he makes this.”

Wentz has a $US1.6 million salary this season and has a weekly paycheck of a little less than $US100,000.

Moments later, Elliott nailed the kick, and the Eagles went berserk. There’s no word yet if Wentz did, in fact, pay Elliott, but now, it’s going to be hard for him to take it back.
