Nick Foles earned Pro Bowl MVP honors as Jerry Rice's team defeated Deion Sanders' in Sunday night's Pro Bowl game, 22-21.
The game was actually somewhat entertaining despite its odd construction, with Rice and Sanders "drafting" each of their teams in a two-day process we could hardly stomach. Most importantly, no players suffered any significant injuries. In Sunday's game, Foles completed 7-of-10 throws for 89 yards and a 12-yard touchdown pass to Jordan Cameron. Chiefs ILB Derrick Johnson was named Defensive MVP, racking up nine tackles and a forced fumble. Jan 26 - 11:18 PM

The Eagles can't sign Nick Foles to a contract extension until after the 2014 season.

Per the terms of the CBA, drafted players have to play under their rookie contract through the third year. So much like Russell Wilson, Foles will play out next season as one of the biggest bargains in the league at $615,000. It gives the Eagles a full season to be absolutely sure they want to commit to Foles as their franchise quarterback and it also brings them a windfall of cap space. This year he finished the regular season eighth in completion percentage (64.0), first in yards per attempt (9.12) and first in passer rating (119.2) while throwing 27 touchdowns against two interceptions.

Nick Foles completed 23-of-33 passes for 195 yards with two touchdowns and zero interceptions in Saturday's 26-24 Wild Card loss to the Saints.

It was nearly a storybook ending to a magical season for Foles as he led the Eagles on a 77-yard touchdown drive to give them a 24-23 lead with under five minutes to go. But he left too much time on the clock as the Saints marched right back down the field for a game-winning field goal as time expired. It won't put a damper on Foles' 2014 outlook. Pegged as Michael Vick's backup after narrowly losing a camp battle, the second-year quarterback finished the regular season eighth in completion percentage (64.0), first in yards per attempt (9.12) and first in passer rating (119.2). He threw 27 touchdowns against a remarkably low two interceptions. With a full offseason as the clear-cut starter to work through a Chip Kelly offense he already appears to have mastered, the 2014 upside will be massive. Foles will be a very solid mid-range QB1.

The forecast for Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia is calling for temperatures in the mid-to-low 20s throughout Saturday night's Saints-Eagles playoff game.

The game has an 8:10 PM ET kickoff. Philadelphia was hit with 6-7 inches of snow earlier in the week, and the grounds crew estimates it has removed 2-3 billion pounds of powder from the stadium leading up to the Wild Card game. The only weather that will affect Saturday night's game is biting-cold temperatures. Winds will be in the 3-5 MPH range, and there's a zero percent chance of precipitation. Snowfall is expected to hit Philadelphia again Sunday.

Nick Foles completed 17-of-26 passes for 263 yards and two touchdowns as the Eagles beat the Cowboys 24-22 in Week 17 to clinch the NFC East.

The Eagles' game plan didn't ask Foles to do much, but he was able attack the Cowboys' secondary on deep throws downfield and connected on touchdowns with LeSean McCoy and Brent Celek in the first half. Foles was able to complete a high-percentage of his passes and didn't have any interceptions despite facing heavy pressure all night, though he took five sacks and fumbled in the third quarter. He finishes the regular season with a 64-percent completion mark, 2,891 yards, and 30 total touchdowns. With the win, the Eagles will host the Saints in the first round of the playoffs on Saturday.

Nick Foles completed 21-of-24 passes for 230 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday night's Week 16 win over the Bears.

He added two carries for 17 yards. It was another impressive outing from Foles, who came out firing with two touchdowns in the first quarter. He only had four incompletions in a game where the Eagles generated 514 yards of total offense. Foles connected with Riley Cooper from five yards out on his first score and later hit Brent Celek in the flats for his second touchdown. He's passed for 2,628 yards and has an MVP caliber 25:2 TD-to-INT ratio in nine starts this season. The Eagles will take on the Cowboys in Week 17 on Sunday Night Football to decide the NFC East.

Nick Foles completed 30-of-48 passes for 428 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in Sunday's 48-30 Week 15 loss at Minnesota.

Foles added five rushes for 41 yards and a two-point conversion pass to give him yet another massive fantasy day. This one came even though he wasn't overly sharp, making a bad throw on his second interception of the season and consistently holding the ball a beat too long as he took four sacks. Still, Foles' overall command of the offense and touch on passes to his weapons is eye-opening. He'll be a top-six quarterback option in Week 16 even though he has a far tougher matchup against the Bears.
Sun, Dec 15, 2013 04:39:00 PM

Nick Foles completed 11-of-22 passes for 179 yards with one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's Week 14 win over the Lions.

Yes, Foles threw his first interception of the season. But it can be blamed on the absurd snowy conditions as he had a ball simply sail on him. Other than that, Foles continued to impress and helped fantasy owners with a 1-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. He also would have had another touchdown pass late, but a wide-open Brent Celek correctly slid down short of the end zone so the Eagles could kneel down and run out the clock. Foles is going to be a top-five quarterback at Minnesota's atrocious pass defense in Week 15.

A snowfall is expected during Sunday's Eagles vs. Lions game in Philadelphia.

It's coming down pretty heavy right now, but the wind will be under 10 MPH and the accumulation is expected to stay below one inch. We wouldn't downgrade anyone in this potential shootout. There are no surprises in the Eagles' inactive list: QB Matt Barkley, S Earl Wolff, CB Curtis Marsh, RB Matt Tucker, LB Najee Goode, T Matt Tobin and T Dennis Kelly.

Coach Chip Kelly told reporters Monday he is committed to Nick Foles as the Eagles' long-term starting quarterback.

"He’s the starting quarterback for the next 1,000 years here," said Kelly. Foles has earned the commitment and then some with a 19:0 TD-to-INT ratio as a passer and 63.3 completion rate through nine appearances. He's rushed for two more scores, and the Eagles have quietly emerged as the NFL's most underrated team. We still wonder if Kelly will use a mid-round draft pick in 2014 on a more mobile signal caller, but Foles' future is obviously shining bright. He's on the cusp of stable QB1 value in Dynasty leagues, and will be an every-week starter during the 2013 fantasy playoffs.

Nick Foles completed 21-of-34 passes for 237 yards with three touchdowns and no interceptions in Sunday's 24-21 Week 13 win over the Cardinals.

Foles was picked off on what would have been an extremely costly interception in the fourth quarter, but he was bailed out by a very questionable defensive holding call. That doesn't take away from the fact that he now has a jaw-dropping 19 touchdowns and zero interceptions on the season. He knows exactly where to go with the ball in Chip Kelly's offense and outside of one head-scratching performance against the Cowboys, he's been remarkably accurate in tight windows. Over his last four games, Foles has gone 4-0 while averaging 292.2 yards and throwing 13 touchdowns. The clear-cut QB1 has three dream matchups up next: vs. DET, at MIN and vs. CHI.

Coach Chip Kelly confirmed Nick Foles will be his starting quarterback for the rest of the season.

Michael Vick (hamstring) is healthy, but he'll be the backup. It's an obvious move as Foles has gone 103-of-162 (63.6 percent) for 1,554 yards with 16 touchdowns and no interceptions on the season while leading the Eagles to five wins in their last seven games. Kelly said he made the announcement because he doesn't want Foles looking over his shoulder if he has a bad quarter or game. Operating the up-tempo offense with supreme command, Foles will be a fine QB1 the rest of the way. After this week's matchup against the Cardinals, he'll face the leaky defenses of the Lions, Vikings and Bears. If Foles shows well and leads the Eagles to the NFC East crown, he'll take a huge step toward becoming the team's franchise quarterback.

Nick Foles completed 17-of-26 passes for 298 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions in Sunday's Week 11 win over the Redskins.

Foles came up inches short of two touchdown throws as Brent Celek and Riley Cooper were each stopped at the 1-yard line. He still had a nice fantasy day because he rushed nine times for 47 yards and scored a touchdown on a zone-read from four yards out. It highlights some underrated athleticism from the second-year pro. Foles has now led the Eagles to three straight wins and still hasn't thrown a pick all year. In his four starts, he's averaging 307.0 passing yards per game. Foles isn't giving this job back to Michael Vick and will be a QB1 when the Eagles come out of their bye.

Speaking Monday, coach Chip Kelly confirmed Nick Foles will remain the Eagles' starting quarterback going forward.

"16 touchdowns, no interceptions," Kelly said rhetorically. "Why would we change?" It's refreshing candor from a coach who could have easily tried to hide the obvious truth behind banal coachspeak. Michael Vick (hamstring) might not be healthy enough for Week 11, anyways, but it's clear the starting job is Foles' until further notice. He'll be a legitimate QB1 against the Redskins' pathetic pass defense on Sunday.
Mon, Nov 11, 2013 01:48:00 PM

Coach Chip Kelly made it "fairly clear" Monday that Nick Foles is locked in as the Eagles' starter going forward.

"Because it's working," Kelly said. Kelly will likely scour the draft for a mobile quarterback next spring, but he's going to ride one-dimensional Foles for the rest of this year. Through seven 2013 appearances, Foles has posted a Peyton Manning-like 16:0 TD-to-INT ratio with a 17th score on a scramble. Foles will continue to be a fantasy QB1 when Philly hosts Washington in Week 11.
