09/07/14 - B Nick Foles was able to bounce back from a terrible first half and lead his team to a comeback victory. The jury is still out on Foles and whether he really is a franchise quarterback, and this was a big step for him as he overcame adversity and won the game.
12/30/13 - QB Nick Foles has thrown just two interceptions in 317 pass attempts this season.
12/04/13 - QB Nick Foles has thrown a club-record 233 straight passes without an interception.
12/02/13 - QB Nick Foles extended his streak of consecutive passes without an interception to a team-record 233.
11/27/13 - QB Nick Foles will be the team's starting quarterback for the remainder of the season as long as he stays healthy.
11/26/13 - QB Nick Foles was named the Philadelphia Eagles starting quarterback for the rest of 2013 by head coach Chip Kelly Tuesday, in an announcement that was more official noise than news.
Foles will start Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals (7-4) in a game that could have playoff implications.
Kelly, speaking Tuesday as the Eagles (6-4) return from their bye week trailing the Dallas Cowboys by one-half game in the NFC East, said veteran Michael Vick is preparing as a professional and wants to do "anything he can" to help the team as a No. 2 quarterback.
Kelly said Vick knew and understood the direction the team is taking with a three-game winning streak entering Week 13.
"He's been a great leader and will be our No. 2 this week," Kelly said.
Vick is ready to return from a hamstring injury but Foles has the hot hand.
11/20/13 - QB Nick Foles, who isn't known for his running ability, actually outrushed Robert Griffin III on Sunday. Foles had 47 yards on nine carries, including three rushing first downs and a rushing touchdown. Griffin finished with 44 yards on 10 carries. Coach Chip Kelly said he's been pleased with Foles' decision-making as a runner. "I think it's been good," Kelly said.
"He's missed a few and he'll admit that. But a lot of that will come with repetition. A lot of that also is how much do we want to put him in those situations. If we hand it off (to a running back) and can get three, we're good with that. We can live with second-and-seven."
11/18/13 - QB Nick Foles had his sixth 100-plus passer rating performance in his last seven games, completed 65 percent of his passes and extended his streak of pass attempts without an interception to 199. His only negative was that he failed to throw a touchdown pass against a defense that had allowed 19 in its first nine games. And he was sacked three times. He leads the league with a 128.0 passer rating and is first in touchdown percentage, interception percentage and yards per attempt.
In his last three starts, all wins, he has a 152.8 passer rating. Since 1960, just one quarterback, the Cowboys' Craig Morton, had a higher three-game passer rating (155.2 in '69).
"The big thing for me with our quarterbacks is wins No. 1," coach Chip Kelly said when asked what he wants out of a starting quarterback. "And interceptions No. 2. And Nick has been really good at both of those. We're plus-10 (in turnover differential) in the six games we've won and we're minus-6 in the five games we've lost."
11/13/13 - QB Nick Foles has yet to be named the starter for Sunday's game by coach Chip Kelly, but he's been taking all of the first-team reps this week. Michael Vick still is a limited practice participant because of his hamstring injury.
