Nick Foles completed 19-of-29 passes for 179 yards, a touchdown and interception in Thursday's preseason game against the Steelers.
The Eagles' starter should be done for the preseason. Foles got off to a rocky start, missing low, wide and high on the Eagles' opening possession. He quickly settled down, however, working the middle of the field and getting the ball out extremely quick on the Eagles' numerous screens. His pick came on a botched screen, while his touchdown was a LeSean McCoy catch-and-run on a reverse screen. If Foles is indeed done for August, he finishes with more picks than he threw in all of 2013 (three), but 304 yards and two scores on 48 attempts (6.3 YPA). He's a locked-in QB1. Aug 21 - 9:27 PM

Nick Foles completed 8-of-10 passes for 81 yards and a touchdown in the Eagles' second preseason game Friday night.

Foles wasn't perfect, but it was a nice step forward after his two-pick exhibition opener. He kept the chains moving and found Zach Ertz for a six-yard TD in the second quarter. Through two preseason games, Foles is 14-of-19 passing for 124 yards, the one score, and two interceptions. Foles' ADP currently sits in the early seventh round. We'd like him better about a round later.

According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, Nick Foles has looked "decent, not great" for the majority of training camp.

Reporter Jeff McLane made the same observation 11 days ago. Foles struggled in Friday's preseason opener, tossing two interceptions in three possessions. The third resulted in a punt. The August struggles obviously pale in comparison to Foles' 2013 accomplishments, but it's not a question of if Foles will regress, but by how much. Foles' Yahoo ADP of No. 62 is extremely optimistic.

Nick Foles completed 6-of-9 passes for 44 yards, but was intercepted twice in Friday night's preseason opener against the Bears.

The Eagles' first-team offense played three possessions. They punted once and Foles was picked off on the other two. We're not worried about Foles, who didn't have Riley Cooper (foot) and played poorly in a small sample size. Ifeanyi Momah led the first team in catches on Friday night. The Eagles' offense still moved impressively fast, and remains among the best in football. It's worth noting Foles' two picks were as many as he had all last season.

The Philadelphia Inquirer says Nick Foles has been good, but not great so far at camp.

Foles was certainly great when he got his chance last season, leading the NFL in YPA and passer rating while ranking sixth among quarterbacks in fantasy points per game. Concerns for an encore include a natural regression off an absurd 27:2 TD-to-INT rate, the loss of DeSean Jackson and a full offseason for defensive coordinators to study the Chip Kelly scheme. Foles' current ADP is currently in the sixth round, ahead of Robert Griffin III, Jay Cutler, Cam Newton, Matt Ryan and Tony Romo among others.

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.

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.
Jan 6 - 9:18 AM

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.

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.
