Recent Game Summaries
2018 Week 2 vs TB (35 / 48 / 334 / 1 / 0 pass, 3 / 8 / 0 rush)
In what set up as a get well game against the Buccaneers on paper turned into a road loss despite the Eagles' offense playing better than a week ago. Foles took a number of hits in the first half, both as a passer and uncharacteristically as a runner. Foles added a third down scramble, absorbing a huge hit to convert. Despite being down by 20 points by the mid-third quarter, Foles had highlight throws already in the game, including a deep out to Nelson Agholor on third-and-long and a Zach Ertz high-point play late in the first half. In overall trend was facing too many long-yardage situations and lacking a run game presence as the deficit extended in the second half. Foles was a contributing factor to the comeback, however, with extending plays for big gains. Specifically, Foles eluded pressure and found ancillary tight end Joshua Perkins deep to move into field goal range and later a highlight reel throw-and-catch to Nelson Agholor on a well-covered corner route on fourth-and-goal in the end zone for the Eagles to stay in the game. After a concerning Week 1, Nick Foles rebounded with a solid game, his last before Carson Wentz returns to the lineup.
2018 Week 1 vs ATL (19 / 34 / 117 / 0 / 1 pass, 1 / -1 / 0 rush)
With Carson Wentz still recovering from his knee injury, Nick Foles drew the start to open the Eagles' season against Atlanta. There was a clear game plan for conservative play calling. It was a clunky start for Foles and the passing game with two empty drives including a bobbled snap which thwarted a third down attempt. Without Alshon Jeffery, an occasional deep shot to Mike Wallace was the lone opportunity down the field for Foles. In terms of accuracy, Foles was off-target often this week, highlighted by missing a wide open Zach Ertz on a third down out route and being late on a deep crossing route, which should have been an interception if not for a drop from the defensive back. Foles highlight recalled a moment from their Super Bowl victory, the 'Philly Special', as Foles caught a third down pass from Nelson Agholor on a reverse to convert.
