  Eagles | Nick Foles to start Week 2    Wed Sep 12, 10:48 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles will start Week 2 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, head coach Doug Pederson announced Wednesday, Sept. 12.

Footballguys view: This move is not a surprise. Carson Wentz is not ready to go and he may still miss more time after Week 2. Foles didn't play well in Week 1 against the Falcons but the team should have a better plan for him this week against the Bucs. He's a QB2 on the road in Week 2.

  Eagles | Nick Foles throws for 117 yards on TNF    Fri Sep 7, 01:38 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles went 19-for-34 for 117 yards, 0 TDs and 1 INT against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 1. Foles also caught a pass for 15 yards.

Footballguys view: Foles was unspectacular, except as a receiver. His downfield accuracy was off and it appears the Eagles offense will not be able to threaten downfield while Foles is in and Alshon Jeffery is out.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz awaiting medical clearance    Tue Sep 4, 12:10 PM

Updating an ongoing story, Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz (knee) is still waiting on medical clearance, and head coach Doug Pederson said Tuesday, Sept. 4, it is why Nick Foles is starting Thursday night's season opener against the Atlanta Falcons.

Footballguys view: We're still playing the waiting game with the Eagles star quarterback. Pederson said Wentz is 'close' to getting that clearance, but he had to make the determination on the Week 1 starting quarterback Monday. 'It's still a medical issue,' Pederson said Tuesday. 'As of right now, me standing here, he is not cleared.'

  Eagles | Nick Foles to start Week 1    Mon Sep 3, 11:44 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles will start Week 1 against the Atlanta Falcons Thursday, Sept. 6.

Footballguys view: This move was expected. The Eagles need to give Carson Wentz all the time he needs as he continues to come back from the knee injury that shortened his 2017 season. He's getting close, but the Eagles figured to give him more time...especially since they open up the season on Thursday night against the Falcons.

  Eagles | Nick Foles to start Week 1?    Fri Aug 31, 11:39 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles will be the Week 1 starter, according to Tim McManus of ESPN.com, and McManus believes QB Carson Wentz (knee) could miss a week or two.

Footballguys view: That is the best move for the Eagles. Wentz needs to get as healthy as possible and Foles gives them time to do just that.

  Eagles | Nick Foles likely to play first half Thursday    Tue Aug 21, 12:52 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (shoulder) will probably play 'the whole first half' in the team's Week 3 preseason game against the Cleveland Browns on Thursday, Aug. 23.

Footballguys view: It's good news for the Eagles that his shoulder injury was not more serious. Foles will play a half against the Browns then we should see an interesting third-string/developmental quarterback (Nate Sudfeld) take over. If someone trades for Foles, then Sudfeld would be the no.2 quarterback behind Carson Wentz.

Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (shoulder) is not expected to miss much time after tests on his injured shoulder showed a minor injury, according to a source.

Footballguys view: This is good news for the Eagles, who hopefully won't have to feel pressured to play Carson Wentz if they feel he would benefit from sitting Week 1 now.

  Eagles | Nick Foles exits with shoulder injury    Thu Aug 16, 08:54 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (shoulder) had to exit the team's preseason game Thursday, Aug. 16, against the New England Patriots due to a shoulder strain, according to the club.

Footballguys view: The Eagles were going to have a tough decision in Week 1 whether to start Foles or Carson Wentz coming back from a multi-ligament knee tear. This injury might have made the decision for them. If neither Foles nor Wentz are ready, Nate Sudfeld would get the Thursday night start against the Falcons in Week 1.

  Eagles | Nick Foles returns to practice    Sat Aug 11, 11:54 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (neck, back) resumed practicing Saturday, Aug. 11.

Footballguys view: Foles doesn't need a ton of work in training camp or the preseason. The veteran has a known skill set, so the Eagles are just taking it easy on Foles as he returns to practice.

  Eagles | Nick Foles dealing with spasms    Tue Aug 7, 12:34 PM

Updating an earlier report, Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (back, neck) is reportedly dealing with spasms in his trapezius and neck area. He has missed three straight practices and is not expected to participate in the team's preseason opener Thursday, Aug. 9.

Footballguys view: Foles is important as the potential Week 1 starter for the Eagles, so they will be as careful with him as they are being with Carson Wentz as he returns from a serious knee injury and surgery. Expect to see a lot of Nate Sudfeld over the next month.

  Eagles | Nick Foles out of practice    Tue Aug 7, 09:23 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (upper body) is out of practice Tuesday, Aug. 7, due to upper-body soreness. He's unlikely to play in the preseason opener this week.

Footballguys view: Expect to see a ton of Nate Sudfeld, who will likely be the backup to Carson Wentz next year. Joe Callahan should also get a lot of snaps.

  Eagles | Nick Foles sits again    Mon Aug 6, 12:20 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (undisclosed) was sidelined for the second straight practice Monday, Aug. 6, because of upper body soreness.

Footballguys view: The Eagles are working Carson Wentz back from the knee injury that ended his 2017 season. Foles took over last year and we all know how that ended as the veteran quarterback was named Super Bowl MVP. Wentz is on a good track to return in Week 1 of the regular season but the team is taking it easy on Foles as you never know if they're going to need his experience once again as their starter.

  Eagles | No strong offers for Nick Foles    Sat Mar 24, 09:49 PM

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson said there has not been an offer made that would even tempt the team into trading QB Nick Foles.

Footballguys view: Last season was the perfect storm for Foles. Unless Frank Reich, Doug Pederson and the Eagles offensive scheme was coming with him, nobody was paying a premium for a guy with more bad tape than not. He's in a great situation with Philadelphia, and probably the exact one he needs to be in.

  Eagles | Nick Foles receives $3 million bonus    Sun Mar 18, 06:57 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles is due a $3 million roster bonus on Sunday, March 18.

Footballguys view: The Eagles may not trade away Foles for a few reasons. First, he's playing at a cheap rate compared to other backup QBs...especially after winning Super Bowl 52 MVP. Second, the Eagles are best off keeping him if Carson Wentz gets slowed in his recovery from knee surgery. He's on track to play for Week 1, but keeping Foles gives them great insurance in case Wentz needs a bit more time.

  Eagles | Big asking price for Nick Foles    Mon Mar 5, 01:34 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles has been a trade target for a few teams this offseason, but the Eagles are telling teams that they are looking for more than the first- and fourth-round draft picks they received when they traded QB Sam Bradford to the Minnesota Vikings.

Footballguys view: The Eagles are 'very open' to trading Foles so long as the price is right. They feel like Carson Wentz will be ready for Week 1 and they like third-string quarterback Nate Sudfeld. We'll see if anybody bites on that price tag.

  Eagles | Nick Foles may be trade target    Sun Feb 4, 03:13 PM

The Philadelphia Eagles are expecting to receive trade interest on QB Nick Foles this offseason.

  Eagles | Nick Foles in historic spot for Super Bowl    Tue Jan 30, 02:30 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles will have registered the third-fewest starts (three) during the regular season of any quarterback to start under center in the ensuing Super Bowl. Retired QBs Jeff Hostetler and Doug Williams, with two apiece, were the only other quarterbacks to have started fewer games during the season prior to their starts in the Super Bowl -- both went on to win.

Footballguys view: Foles played maybe the best game of his career (save for that seven touchdown game vs Oakland) last week in the NFC Championship game. He has a lot of experience in the Pederson/Reid offensive system and should be more comfortable than a typical backup.

  Eagles | Nick Foles improves on deep ball    Thu Jan 25, 09:12 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles was 2-for-13 during the regular season and first postseason game on throws of 20 yards or more prior to the club's NFC Championship win over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, Jan. 21, in which he finished 4-for-5 on such passes for 172 yards.

Footballguys view: Lots of credit here needs to go to Doug Pederson and Frank Reich for a great offensive game plan to exploit what little weaknesses the Vikings top-rated overall defense presented. The Patriots defense is easier to crack, so Foles positive momentum should continue.

  Eagles | Nick Foles has been worse at home    Tue Jan 16, 04:57 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles has thrown just one touchdown compared to two interceptions in five games played in Philadelphia this season. Meanwhile, he has thrown four touchdowns and zero interceptions in two road contests. The Eagles face the Minnesota Vikings in Philadelphia in the NFC Championship this weekend.

Footballguys view: Foles will need a solid game to beat the Vikings in the NFC Championship Game. He took some time to get going in the Divisional Round, and Foles didn't have a great box score after the game. He didn't need to and the Eagles moved on. Those numbers and Foles' production will have to be better if they want to advance to the Super Bowl.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles went 23-for-30 for 246 yards in a 15-10 win over the Atlanta Falcons. Foles did not score a touchdown, nor was he intercepted.

Footballguys view: Foles was very effective as a passer on Saturday. He didn't seem rattled under pressure and made several key throws to keep drives alive (6-of-13 on third downs as a team). Expect a similar game plan for Foles in the NFC Championship Game next week.

  Eagles | Nick Foles solid in previous playoff effort    Tue Jan 9, 03:35 AM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles has started one postseason contest in his career leading up to the team's Divisional Round playoff game against the Atlanta Falcons. In Jan. 2014, Foles faced the New Orleans Saints and despite coming up short in defeat, he enjoyed a quality outing, completing 23-of-33 passes for 195 yards and two touchdowns. He also had one rush for three yards.

Footballguys view: Foles isn't a bad starter, he just needs to be protected well and stay on script to make the most of his passing ability. It will be up to the Falcons to see if they can make Foles move in the pocket (or out of the pocket) and throw from platforms he's not comfortable with.

  Eagles | Nick Foles in no danger of getting pulled    Tue Jan 2, 01:47 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles will remain the starting quarterback during the playoffs. After briefly leaving the door open to benching Foles earlier in the week if he played poorly, head coach Doug Pederson told NFL Network's Ian Rapoport, 'My guy is Nick Foles, end of story.'

Footballguys view: As the no1 seed in the NFC, the Eagles have home field advantage throughout the playoffs. They will face the lowest seeded team that survives Wild Card Weekend. Foles has struggled at times after taking over for an injured Carson Wentz, but the Eagles basically have no other option but to stick with him. Nate Sudfeld is the backup quarterback to Foles and his only pro experience came in Week 17 against the Cowboys last week.

  Eagles | Week 17 game recap for Philly    Sun Dec 31, 04:01 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles went 4-for-11 for 39 yards and one interception against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 17. RB LeGarrette Blount rushed for 37 yards on nine carries. TE Zach Ertz caught two passes for 24 yards during the game, while WR Alshon Jeffery caught one pass for eight yards.

Footballguys view: Foles has been woeful since piloting touchdown drives with ease against the Giants two weeks ago. The Eagles have the #1 seed in the NFC, but they are vulnerable.

  Eagles | Philly noncommittal on Nick Foles for Week 17    Tue Dec 26, 12:59 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles is not a lock to start or play a significant number of snaps in Week 17 against Dallas Cowboys.

Footballguys view: Week 17 is going to be treated like a preseason game by multiple teams out there. The Eagles have visions of making a deep postseason run with Foles as the starter. They could get him a few series then give way to Nate Sudfeld. A sixth-round pick out of Indiana in 2016 (Washington), Sudfeld has never thrown a pass in a regular season game. He's a tall (6'6") pocket passer with a rocket arm.

Footballguys view: Foles was efficient and effective and destroyed a Giants defense that has been easy to solve in the second half of the season. He'll be a solid QB1 against a below average Raiders defense next week.
