Wentz has struggled this season, leading to speculation he could be benched and replaced by rookie Jalen Hurts.

Hurts briefly replaced Wentz during the Eagles' 23-17 loss to the Seahawks in the NFL on Monday.

But Wentz, who completed 25 of 45 passes for 215 yards, two touchdowns and an interception, and rushed for 42 yards on five carries, said he was blocking out suggestions he could lose his place.

"This is what you sign up for, as a quarterback ever since you're a kid you're prepared for any of those. Nothing's ever guaranteed," he told a news conference.

"For me I don't think about that though, I just try and go out and be the best player I can be, in practice, prepare my tail off, compete my tail off and hopefully we can get this thing turned around.

"I don't think about those things, I'm going to give it everything I've got every time I step on the field."

Wentz was sacked six times by the Seahawks, taking that tally to an NFL-high 46 this season, while he also has a league-high 15 interceptions to go with his 16 TD passes.

A slow start proved particularly costly for the Eagles, who failed to get a first down on their opening five drives and had minus-one total yards.

Wentz said the slow starts were frustrating for Philadelphia (3-7-1).

"I've got to go watch the tape. I know some things we just missed, we didn't execute. I can be better early in the games," he said.

"I think they made some plays early and did some things differently than what we had planned, but the slow starts are frustrating.

"That's the biggest thing I'm going to go back and watch and see how we can change that, and how we can change the momentum early in ball games so we can not put ourselves behind the eight ball like that."
