Nick Foles earned game MVP as the Eagles upset the Patriots 41-33 in Super Bowl 52.
Foles built on his stunning NFC title game by staying in attack mode on downfield throws, scoring the Eagles’ first touchdown on a 34-yard first-quarter bomb to Alshon Jeffery and threading a needle to Corey Clement in the third quarter from 22 yards out. Foles also caught a touchdown on a fourth-and-goal trick-play pass from Trey Burton, and threw his third TD to Zach Ertz from 11 yards out in the fourth quarter, which proved the game winner. Foles inherited the Eagles’ quarterback job after Carson Wentz’s ACL tear and engineered a 5-1 finish. In a quarterback-needy NFL, the Eagles may receive offseason trade inquiries for Foles, who is due $7 million in salary and bonuses for 2018. Ideally, Philly would keep Foles as insurance for Wentz’s knee. Feb 4 - 10:24 PM

Nick Foles underwent "precautionary" X-rays on his ribs following Sunday's NFC Championship game win.

Per ESPN's Sal Paolantonio, Foles' injury "doesn't appear serious," and the X-rays truly appear precautionary. Foles likely experienced routine soreness following Sunday's stunning blowout, although it wasn't for a lack of pass protection. The Eagles held the Vikings' vaunted pass rush to just five QB hits and one sack in the 38-7 rout. "I'm good, I'm good," Foles assured after the tests.

Nick Foles completed 26-of-33 passes for 352 yards and three touchdowns in the Eagles' shocking, 38-7 blowout win over the Vikings in Sunday's NFC Championship game.

Foles went just 2-of-15 on throws attempted 20-plus yards downfield this season. He completed four 20-plus-yard throws in Sunday’s game alone, beginning with a 53-yard touchdown to a wide-open Alshon Jeffery in the second quarter and capped by a 41-yard flea-flicker score to Torrey Smith in the third frame. Foles’ third TD went to Jeffery in the red zone early in the fourth. It was a stunning air-raid performance against the NFC’s premier pass defense. The Eagles will likely need something similar from Foles – in addition to defensive dominance – in order to upset the Patriots in the Super Bowl. New England is expected to open as a five- to six-point favorite.
Jan 21 - 9:41 PM

Nick Foles completed 23-of-30 passes for 246 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions in the Eagles' 15-10, Divisional Round win over the Falcons.

Foles' numbers don't stand out, but he turned in a gutsy effort after he and the entire Eagles offense got off to the worst possible start. Foles was airmailing simple throws while his running backs couldn't stop fumbling. Riding run/pass option plays, Foles slowly got in rhythm as the Eagles consistently moved the chains in the second half. The Eagles figure to be underdogs against either the Vikings or Saints in the NFC Championship Game, but appear to have moved past their awful post-Carson Wentz football from December.
Jan 13 - 7:46 PM

According to NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, Eagles coach Doug Pederson said, "My guy is Nick Foles, end of story."

Pederson made some waves when he left open the door to benching Foles in the playoffs, saying, "If you're in desperation mode, who knows?" Pederson quickly clarified himself after the press conference, however, and will almost certainly ride or die with Foles in the postseason. Nate Sudfeld is the only other quarterback on the roster.
Jan 2 - 1:06 PM

Nick Foles completed 4-of-7 passes for 39 yards and an interception in Week 17 against Dallas.

Foles only played a few series with the Eagles locked into a first-round bye. His interception came trying to force a pass to Alshon Jeffery. Foles has looked shaky his last two starts and is a weak point going into the playoffs. The Eagles will likely go with a run-heavy gamescript in the Divisional Round.

The Eagles plan to play Nick Foles 3-4 series in Week 17 against Dallas.

Foles will start, but the Eagles are just getting him some extra reps coming off a shaky Week 16. Nate Sudfeld is expected to play the majority of Sunday's snaps.
Sun, Dec 31, 2017 10:54:00 AM

Coach Doug Pederson said Eagles starters will play Week 17 against the Cowboys, but "at the same time be smart with how much they play."

"The idea is to just keep the starters going," Pederson explained. "I don't want to not play them, and then it's three weeks later and you're playing a game. I think that would be foolish on my part, so I want to make sure that they stay in the moment, but at the same time be smart with how much they play, how long they play, and go from there." Maybe Foles and Co. will play the first half before giving way to the backups. None of these guys are attractive fantasy plays.
Fri, Dec 29, 2017 12:22:00 PM

Nick Foles said he is "preparing to start" Week 17 against the Cowboys.

Foles added he is taking the first-team reps and "preparing to play the whole game." It seems unlikely that happens after coach Doug Pederson hinted the Eagles will treat Sunday almost like a preseason game, but Foles could certainly use the reps. Nate Sudfeld is the only other quarterback on Philly's roster.
Thu, Dec 28, 2017 12:33:00 PM

Eagles coach Doug Pederson was noncommittal about Nick Foles playing Week 17 against the Cowboys.

Pederson said he wants to get Foles "as many reps" as possible, but added the team will "be smart" about his playing time. The comments suggest Philly will treat Sunday's game like a preseason contest, with Foles playing a few series before heading to the bench. Coming off a bad performance and unlikely to play a full complement of snaps, Foles will not be a fantasy option this week.
Tue, Dec 26, 2017 12:44:00 PM

Eagles coach Doug Pederson has yet to decide if he will play his starters Week 17 against the Cowboys.

"I'll evaluate that tomorrow when we get in and see where we're at injury-wise," Pederson said. "I might have more information for you tomorrow, but it will probably be more like Wednesday before I finally make a decision on who we play." Based on how he looked Monday night, Nick Foles could use some extra reps, but it will not be surprising if the skill players get more rest than usual on Sunday.
Tue, Dec 26, 2017 10:43:00 AM

Nick Foles completed just 19-of-38 passes for 163 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in the Eagles' 19-10, Week 16 win over the Raiders on Christmas night.

Foles and Derek Carr looked like the worst quarterbacks on Planet Earth in this one, with each playing hysterically bad particularly in the fourth quarter. Neither quarterback deserved to win this one, but the W will go on Foles' record. His lone touchdown was a perfectly-blocked screen pass to Jay Ajayi, and Foles then missed Zach Ertz on multiple should-be touchdowns later. These offenses simply couldn't move the ball, with the punters combining for 540 yards. The Eagles are in trouble if Foles plays like this again. They'll wrap up the regular season against the Cowboys.
Mon, Dec 25, 2017 11:52:00 PM

Nick Foles completed 24-of-38 passes for 237 yards and four touchdowns in the Eagles' Week 15 win over the Giants.

In this week's surprise shootout, Foles avoided mistakes and executed in the red zone as Philly held off a surprisingly resurgent Giants team, 34-29. Foles connected with four difference pass catchers for his scores and was in complete command, taking just one sack. Foles will stay in play as a Week 16 streamer when the Eagles host a burnable Raiders defense in fantasy title week.
Sun, Dec 17, 2017 04:48:00 PM

On in relief of Carson Wentz (knee), Nick Foles completed 6-of-10 passes for 42 yards in the Eagles' 43-35, Week 14 win over the Rams.

Foles checked in with 13:57 remaining after Wentz injured his knee in the third quarter. The Eagles are concerned Wentz has suffered a torn left ACL. That would thrust Foles under center for the rest of the season for the 11-2 Eagles. Foles has obviously had success before, but there's a reason he's living the backup life. That being said, he will be on the streaming radar against the hapless Giants in Week 15.

Nick Foles (elbow) is practicing in full for Week 1.

Foles sat out most of camp with a sore right elbow but it appears he's put the injury behind him. He'll serve as the backup to starter Carson Wentz this season.
