Carson Wentz's jersey is so popular even his opponents want a piece of it.

On the first play of Sunday's game, Washington Redskins outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan tore the jersey of the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback while trying to make a tackle.

Washington would eventually take down Wentz.

Once he got back on his feet, the effects of Kerrigan were evident as Wentz was sporting a ripped jersey.

Eagles fan and Balboa Foundation co-founder Drew Olanoff tweeted that he could lend Wentz a new jersey to which the Eagles replied, "People helping people."

The Eagles rookie is wearing one of the most sought after jerseys.

Last month, Carson Wentz had the No. 1 selling NFL jersey.

In the latest DICK's Sporting Goods Jersey Report, Wentz's jersey is fifth overall in sales and is the only rookie in the top 30.

Despite the wardrobe malfunction, the now imperfect seams did not seem to faze Wentz.

He continued on as the Eagles came back in the 2nd quarter to tie the game after falling behind 14-0.

In the end, the Eagles drop to 3-2 after losing 27-20 to the Redskins.
