Oct. 9 (UPI) -- Philadelphia's baseball team might be couched for the playoffs, but it's football team hit a home run Sunday.
The Eagles faced a third and five with 55 seconds remaining in the first quarter before the play. Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz stepped back and fired 59-yard pass down the middle to Torrey Smith. Smith snagged the catch and raced Cardinals cornerback Justin Bethel to the end zone for the score. The score gave the Eagles a 21-0 advantage.
After crossing the goal line, Smith knelt down first before being joined by Wentz, Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholar and Zack Ertz. Wentz stepped behind Smith and imitated an empire. Jeffery played catcher, Agholar pretended to be the pitcher and Smith stepped in to bat.
The righty Agholar delivered a smoking hot fastball and Smith took a big rip. His teammates stared at the no doubter until it cleared the imaginary fence for a long ball.
Smith had three catches for 70 yards and a score to go along with his first home run of the 2017 season. Wentz completed 21-of-30 passes for 304 yards, four touchdowns and an interception in the win.
