NFL rookie leaves $500 tip at old college bar because now he can

Rookie quarterback and Joe Biden man-crush Carson Wentz continues to dare people outside Philadelphia to find reasons to dislike him: This week, the 23-year-old taught ex–fellow Eagle LeSean McCoy a lesson on proper tip etiquette while back home in North Dakota, when he left a $500 gratuity on his group's thousand-dollar tab at Herd & Horns, a spot in his alma mater's hometown of Fargo.

McCoy's infamous 20-cent tip back in 2014 was meant to protest the poor service at Philly stunt-burger mecca PYT, but Wentz was at an old college haunt and spent the rest of the evening acting like pretty much any other athletic midwesterner, with waitstaff noting that he "is so tall" and yet "was very humble, especially as a guest." After throwing down his monster tip, he left in a cousin's 1996 Chevy pickup.

And this isn't even his biggest service to the Roughrider State: Between those terrific customer manners and a (so far) winning NFL season, Wentz is also doing wonders for the popularity of Philly cheesesteaks in area restaurants.

NFL Power Rankings: Week 6

32. Browns (0-5)
Last Week: 32

Josh McCown will try to return from injury to start Sunday against Tennessee, but if he can't go, nobody really knows who'd line up under center.

27. Saints (1-3)
Last Week: 27

Coming off a bye, they've had more than enough time to focus on the Carolina Panthers. If Cam Newton doesn't suit up, a loss in Week 6 would be a bad one for New Orleans.

26. Jaguars (1-3)
Last Week: 25

Jacksonville had the week off after finally logging its first win of the season, and they should be able to handle Chicago is Week 6 -- but a loss would probably cost Gus Bradley his job, and all but write off the Jags' playoff chances in a highly anticipated season.

24. Giants (2-3)
Last Week: 20

At age 35, Eli Manning is showing some serious signs of decline. He's now logged back-to-back weeks averaging less than six yards per pass attempt, with QBRs of 20.3 and 21.7, respectively, in those games. That, coupled with a defense that is having tackling issues reminiscent of 2015, isn't boding well for the last-place Giants.

23. Panthers (1-4)
Last Week: 17

Without Cam Newton, it's clear this Panthers team doesn't stand much of a chance. They're following up their 15-1 campaign of a year ago with a much less spirited showing, and with Atlanta surging to open the season, they may already be seeing their playoff chances slip away.

22. Titans (2-3)
Last Week: 23

Marcus Mariota still isn't firing on all cylinders -- he threw for only 163 yards, but connected on three touchdowns in the Titans' win over Miami. DeMarco Murray is certainly shouldering much of the offensive load, but there's still not enough talent here to compete with most teams.

21. Buccaneers (2-3)
Last Week: 24

Tampa ended a three-game skid with a Monday night, winning a divisional game in Charlotte -- though against Derek Anderson's offense, not Cam Newton's. If the Buccaneers' defense can show signs of improvement, we'd be willing to put more stock in them -- but they're not there yet.

19. Rams (3-2)
Last Week: 15

Los Angeles suffered its first loss since Week 1 at the hands of a hot Buffalo team. They still can't seem to string together much offense, and it's only a matter of time until Jeff Fisher gives Jared Goff a real chance.

18. Colts (2-3)
Last Week: 21

The Colts escaped Lucas Oil Stadium with a win over the Bears -- barely. It was a bit too close for comfort against one of the worst teams of 2016, leaving much to be desired as we transition out of the season's opening portion.

17. Cardinals (2-3)
Last Week: 16

Even without Carson Palmer, the Cardinals handled San Francisco on the road in Week 5. They're not out of the woods yet, but a win against the Jets on Monday night could even up their record before a matchup with the Seahawks in Week 7.

16. Bengals (2-3)
Last Week: 13

A team that entered the season as a presumed title contender, the Bengals are fledgling after a Week 1 win against the Jets. Cincy fell behind Dallas 28-0 before closing the deficit before time expired -- but a Week 6 date in New England could be even more lopsided.

15. Ravens (3-2)
Last Week: 14

Balimore's 3-0 start was more a product of their weak schedule than their ability, and their two losses since are more telling of who they really are. Offensive coordinator Marc Trestman is out, and they'll travel to New Jersey to take on the struggling Giants this week.

14. Redskins (3-2)
Last Week: 19

The Skins have gone on a three-win tear after dropping their first two games, placing them within striking distance of first place in the NFC East, as Dallas travels to Lambeau for Week 6. They'll be hosting Philadelphia on Sunday with a chance to bust the division wide open.

13. Bills (3-2)
Last Week: 18

Just a few weeks after looking like Rex Ryan may soon be unemployed, the Bills have won three straight games and sit just one back of New England atop the AFC East. With two winnable games upcoming, there's a scenario within the realm of possibility that involves Buffalo and New England facing off in Week 8 with the division lead on the line.

12. Texans (3-2)
Last Week: 8

Houston is in a rut, facing both the Patriots and Vikings over the last three weeks. They aren't quite in that tier, but there's reason to believe the Texans are still among the better teams in the league. Up next is a divisional matchup against Indianapolis, where a loss -- creating a tie with the Colts and perhaps Tennessee atop the AFC South.

11. Chiefs (2-2)
Last Week: 10

After a bye in Week 5, Kansas City still has a lot to prove, and a Week 6 game in Oakland will help clear up their true identity.

10. Eagles (3-1)
Last Week: 7

The Eagles finally lost their first game, and Carson Wentz finally threw his first interception. But things are still looking up for Philly, with Wentz still throwing for a pair of touchdowns and almost mounting a comeback against an early two-touchdown deficit.

9. Raiders (4-1)
Last Week: 12

The Raiders moved to 4-1 on Sunday, but barely, as a series of Chargers miscues effectively handed Oakland the victory. Still, a win is a win, and an upcoming schedule filled with vulnerable opponents leaves the Raiders with a legitimate chance to rise up these rankings even further.

8. Cowboys (4-1)
Last Week: 11

Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott only seem to be getting stronger and more comfortable as the season goes on, routing Cincinnati in Week 5 even without Dez Bryant. They'll have their work cut out for them at Lambeau on Sunday, but by this time next week, we'll know for sure just how legit this Cowboys team is.

7. Seahawks (3-1)
Last Week: 5

Idle in Week 5, the Seahawks benefitted from a week of rest for Russell Wilson as he battles back from injury. A bout with the surging Falcons awaits in Week 6, in a matchup between two potential NFC title contenders.

6. Falcons (4-1)
Last Week: 9

We've seen enough to confidently say the Falcons are among the league's best teams -- but how did they get here? With much of the same personnel as last season, Atlanta has found a winning formula again -- with Mo Sanu acting as a viable threat opposite Julio Jones and a RB tandem of Tevin Coleman and Devonta Freeman that's arguably the best in the NFL.

4. Steelers (4-1)
Last Week: 4

They handled the Jets with ease at Heinz Field in Week 5, and with Le'Veon Bell back in the mix, the Steelers' offense looks unstoppable. A winnable matchup against Miami this week should serve as a tune-up before a Week 7 heavyweight bout against the Patriots.

2. Vikings (5-0)
Last Week: 3

So, this is really happening, huh? Sam Bradford and the Minnesota Vikings are 5-0, and seem to be getting stronger by the week. Entering their bye, the Vikings are guaranteed to be undefeated heading into Week 7 -- something they haven't done since 2009.

1. Patriots (4-1)
Last Week: 2

He's back. And despite going for over 400 yards in his first game of the season, Tom Brady admitted there was a little "rust" against the Browns. That doesn't bode well for the rest of the league.
