Apparently, Eagles QB Nick Foles is gonna be just fine.
Foles, coming off his two-interception preseason debut last Friday against the Bears, bounced back from his spotty performance and returned to Folesian form Friday night in New England.
“Yeah, I thought he bounced back,” head coach Chip Kelly said. “Unfortunately the first play of the game, we fumbled and couldn’t get them (the Pats' offense) off the field, so it took a while to get back into rhythm. I thought when he got back out there, I was pleased with how he performed and how he moved those guys down the field a little bit.”
Despite having his two top receivers sidelined, Foles completed 8 of 10 passes for 81 yards and tossed a touchdown in his four total series (see 10 observations). He compiled a passer rating of 133.8.
Foles looked great all week in team drills against New England and in limited time thanks to turnovers, turned in another good performance. We've seen him bounce back before, like last year in a brutal game against the Cowboys, he was fantastic the rest of the season. He continues to be a middle round target for those who wait at QB.
