Josh McCown was thrown into duty Sunday night after Carson Wentz went down with a concussion in the second quarter of the Eagles-Seahawks game.
Making his debut after 17 seasons in the league, McCown gave it all he had only to come up short on a 4th down in the red zone, tripped up by a Seattle defender.
McCown was seen crying in the arms of his tight end Zach Ertz after the clocks hit zero, ending the Eagles’ season.
Powerful moment between Zach Ertz and Josh McCown after the Eagles loss.
The veteran QB left it all on the field. Respect. 🙏
