All with my amazing wife by my side! What a year filled with so much to be thankful for. Can’t wait to see what God has in store for 2020! Happy New Year y’all!” Wentz said on Instagram.

Carson & Madison Got Married in 2018
Madison and Carson got married in July of 2018 a few weeks before the start of training camp. The wedding took place outdoors at the scenic The Lake House Inn in Bucks County, Pennsylvania, per NBC Sports Philadelphia. Wentz took to Twitter to share a few photos of the couple’s big day calling himself a “lucky man” to be marrying his “best friend.”
“Such a blessing to finally get to marry my best friend! It was an incredible day and God has his fingerprints all over our story! I’m a lucky man with one amazing wife ?? #WentzUponATime,” Carson tweeted.
Carson is playing in his first playoff game as the quarterback had been sidelined with injuries during the Eagles’ previous postseason runs. The Eagles quarterback described himself as “grateful” to be able to play in the postseason.
“I’m grateful to be healthy and be in this moment with these guys, to be on the field,” Wentz said this week, per The Washington Post. “I’m just excited for the challenge. I’ve been on the sidelines the last few years for these games, so I’m pretty pumped for the opportunity.”
