Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce has ridiculous powers of concentration on the football field.

So much, that Kelce claims he can tell the difference between Carson Wentz and Nick Foles when they put their hands on his butt before a center exchange.

“Yes, absolutely,” Kelce said on the Dan Patrick Show. “I could be blindfolded and I’m pretty sure I could tell who was back there.”

The Eagles have one of the NFL’s more notable quarterback tandems. Both quarterbacks have different skill sets and leadership abilities.

Wentz ripped up the league last season before he was injured. Foles took over and led the Eagles to their first Super Bowl championship and their first NFL title in 57 seasons last year.

Having a strong connection between a center and a quarterback is an important sign of a winning team.

The Eagles clearly have that — and more.

Kelce’s recall is uncanny. And just another reason why the Eagles are expected to challenge again for the NFL title this season.
