General News (Thu Oct 30): partially participated in Thursday's practice.

Week 9: at Houston Texans

Mark and Joe say: Great matchup. Nick Foles bombed the Cardinals for 36/62 yielding 411 yards passing, two TDs and two interceptions last week (he's thrown two TDs per game over the past three contests, but almost as many interceptions per game with 81/133 for 866 yards passing, six TDs and five interceptions over the three game span). Three players have seen over five targets and also caught TDs from Foles in that three game window: Jeremy Maclin (30 targets for 19/279/3 receiving), Zach Ertz (19 for 11/134/1), and Riley Cooper (21 for 14/180/1). Jordan Matthews has also been heavily involved (24 targets for 14/132/0 receiving). Maclin is clearly the wide receiver to own out of this convocation of Eagles. The Houston pass D is ranked 28th in the NFL allowing 271.4 net passing yards per game, with 15 pass TDs given up vs. seven interceptions and 15 sacks generated to date (tied for 13th and 18th in the NFL, respectively). Rookie Zach Mettenberger threw 27/41 for 290 yards, two TDs and one interception (with two sacks taken for -9 yards) vs. Houston last week, while Pittsburgh posted 24/34 for 252 net yards, three TDs and zero interceptions vs. Houston two weeks back (three sacks taken for -16 yards). This is a great matchup for Foles (and Maclin, by extension).

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 6 vs NYG (5 / 4 / 45 / 0 rec)

Celek had a big 24 yard catch in tight coverage down the field and Celek showed sure hands in making the catch and bringing the ball down. Celek had his second catch on a short 5 yard dump off to the left side line. Celek saw back to back receptions of 9 and 7 yards to help set up the Eagles last touchdown of the game. Although not the quickest player down the field, Celek continues to show that he can still be a trusted asset for Foles in the passing game.

2014 Week 8 vs ARI (4 / 2 / 8 / 0 rec)

Celek caught a 2 yard pass on the second play of the game for the Eagles, he offered very little after the catch. Celek's next catch was a 6 yard gain where he was hit as soon as he made the catch.
