Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 2 vs IND (21 / 37 / 331 / 1 / 1 pass, 4 / 22 / 0 rush)

Foles started the game out with a 12 yard screen pass to McCoy to help get the ball out to the Eagles 29 yard line. He followed that up with a 15 yard short pass to Maclin on the left side of the field. On the same drive he found a wide open Zach Ertz up top for a big 27 yard gain and then went back to him 2 plays later for another first down and 14 more yards. On the second drive of the game Foles used his new weapon Darren Sproles and gave him a short pass over the middle and Sproles did the rest with a 57 yard gain where he just out ran half of the Colts defense. From the 20 yard line Foles threw a perfect ball to Cooper in the corner of the endzone and Cooper just missed the ball completely and let the ball slip through his hands. Foles ran a few times in the game when things were wide open for him and picked up 5 yard and 6 yard gains on his first two runs. He threw a ball into tight coverage to Maclin for a 15 yard gain and a first down to continue an Eagles drive that would eventually lead to a field goal. Foles overthrew Maclin in the endzone on a 30 yard pass where Maclin had a little space to make a catch. Foles looked to use both McCoy and Sproles as much as possible in the passing game and on the last drive of the first half he delivered back to back passes to Sproles for a first down and then followed that up with a quick strike to rookie Jordan Matthews for a 17 yard gain. With 40 seconds left in the first half Foles tossed up a ball down field to Jeremy Maclin and the ball was grabbed out of the air by Greg Toler. The ball was a decent pass and Foles looked to challenge the Colts defender but this time around Toler won the battle. Foles missed Maclin on a first down throw by simple over throwing him on the right sidelines. Even being down 14 points late in the 3rd quarter Foles continued to look confident and lead the Eagles downfield with key passes to Ertz on a 21 yard gain and Cooper on a pass interference call which helped place the ball on the Colts 1 yard line. Foles remained calm and cool late in the 4th quarter and lead the Eagles down the field with a 51 yard screen pass to Darren Sproles and then finding Jeremy Maclin in the endzone for the touchdown. With under 2 minutes left in the game the Eagles got the ball back in a tied 27-27 game. Foles immediately went to work with a huge 24 yard passing play to TE Zach Ertz and then a 17 yard short pass to Sproles and set up the game winning field goal.

2014 Week 3 vs WAS (28 / 42 / 325 / 3 / 0 pass, 4 / 12 / 0 rush)

On the first drive of the game Foles had one completion to Matthews for a quick 4 yard gain and ended up scrambling for another 9 yard gain. Foles had a potential 80 yard touchdown pass to Jeremy Maclin that was called back due to a block in the back by Jason Kelce. Foles threw Riley Cooper a nice pass to the left sidelines for a big 21 yard gain. He followed that up with another patient thrown to TE Zach Ertz for another first down. Foles later found rookie Jordan Matthews for an 11 yard touchdown right in the middle of the endzone. Foles had just over a minute on the clock at the end of the 2nd quarter to move the Eagles downfield. He did just that with a quick pass to Matthews, followed it up with a short run and then went to Ertz for a 4 yard pick up and once again to the rookie Matthews for a 10 yard first down throw. Foles found a wide open Maclin for a nice pickup which lead to a back of the endzone throw to Jordan Matthews for Foles 2nd touchdown of the game. Foles started the second half fast with a quick pass to Maclin for 16 yards. Foles threw a nice ball over the middle to Jordan Matthews which ended up being a pass interference call and put the Eagles into field goal range. Foles gained some much needed trust with Matthews on the day and found him once again for a first down play on a 13 yard gain. Along with his connection with Matthews, Foles continued to trust Maclin and found him for a first down play on a 13 yard gain. With the game tied at 27, the biggest play of the game came on a potential interception from Foles that was eventually overturned as the ball hit the ground. On the same play Foles was hit very late with a cheap shot hit and looked to be initially severely hurt on the play. That lead to a fight with some of the players and that moment helped get the momentum back to the Eagles favor and eventually lead to a 27 yard touchdown pass to Jeremy Maclin and a 7 point Eagles lead. Foles continued to show his toughness and composure in this game as things started to get tough and he delivered with confidence and drove the Eagles down the field for a 27 yard perfect throw to Maclin for the go ahead touchdown.

2014 Week 4 vs SF (21 / 43 / 195 / 0 / 2 pass, 1 / 1 / 0 rush)

Foles started the game with a quick 9 yard pass to Maclin and then went back to him and missed him on 2nd down and then he ran for a first down on a 1 yard gain. On the first drive he continued with a short pass to Cooper for 6 yards but also followed it up with overthrows to both the TE's Celek and Ertz. On the Eagles second offensive possession Foles tried a screen pass to McCoy that went nowhere and later had a first down throw to Zach Ertz for a 14 yard gain. Foles had another bad throw to Maclin deep down the right side of the field where he under threw him. On the next possession Foles just missed Jeremy Maclin on another deep pass this time down the middle of the field. Earlier in the drive he got two big gains called back due to penalty and was set up on a long 3rd down which he couldn't convert. Foles was feeling pressure on the day and was looking for quick passes to his receivers. He found Matthews for 2 quick gains of 8 and 4 yards. He later found Sproles for a short gain and went back to Matthews again for a quick first down throw of 5 yards. On the same drive he threw a quick screen pass to Ertz and Ertz did all the work after catch taking the ball down the field for a 12 yard gain. Foles looked for Maclin down the right sideline and the 49ers defender quickly jumped the route and caught the ball out of bounds. Foles had some more short passes that both Cooper and Ertz fumbled and stalled 2 Eagle drives. Foles dumped off another pass to Cooper for an 8 yard gain and then followed that up with a deep pass to Maclin where he was hit and the ball ended up floating in the air and was eventually intercepted. Later on a 3rd and 14, Foles threw the ball short of the first down to Cooper for a 12 yard gain. The next drive was the most impressive on the day for Foles as he drove the Eagles 90 yards down the field only to get stopped at the 49ers 1 yard line and was stopped there on both 3rd and 4th down plays feeling the pressure and overthrowing his receivers in the endzone. To start that drive he had three first down passes to Maclin for gains of 11, 15 and 22 yards. Foles later threw a pin point accurate ball in the endzone to Riley Cooper that Cooper just missed and it should have been caught for the touchdown. Foles ended the game with an interception on a 4th and 24 where he just tossed the ball up hoping for anything.m

Eagles | Nick Foles not hitting deep passes (Mon Sep 29, 05:44 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles did not complete any of his 10 passes that traveled at least 20 yards down the field in Week 4, and two of those passes were intercepted. Foles completed 35.3 percent of his passes that went at least 20 yards last season but is completing only 17.2 percent of those throws this season. Head coach Chip Kelly said he does not believe his deep passes are being affected by his banged up left shoulder because the passes are not being underthrown.

Our View: Foles is getting beat up...that's why his deep passes are off. Foles ranks next to last in blitz percentage per dropback (16 percent), and the league average is 29.6 percent. However, his pressure rate (26.9 percent) ranks 8th-highest in the NFL. This means opponents aren't sending extra rushers, but they're still putting Foles under duress.

Eagles | Nick Foles gets knee wrapped (Sun Sep 28, 07:03 PM) - Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles (knee) left the Week 4 game against the San Francisco 49ers after taking a hit, and he had a black wrap placed on his right knee on the sidelines. However, he was able to stay in the game.

Our View: Foles and the entire Eagles offense can't get anything going against the 49ers. Nothing is hitting in the downfield passing game and LeSean McCoy can't break free. The offensive line woes are catching up to Philadelphia.
