Philadelphia Eagles: Nick Foles Taking After Peyton Manning
Nick Foles is the No. 2 QB on the Philadelphia Eagles’ roster, but earlier today, he started in lace of the injured Michael Vick. Well, the Football Gods should be thanked for that because it paid so many dividends out west in California against the Oakland Raiders.
The Eagles ended up putting a beating on the Raiders on their own turf after weeks of disappointing results under their high-paced offensive system led by coach Chip Kelly. Finally, after so much practice, team talks and pressure, the team delivered on a beautiful Sunday afternoon.
The final score of the game was Philadelphia 49, Oakland 20. Of the 49 Philly points, Mr. Foles threw for seven TD passes with absolutely no interceptions chucked during the process. This performance arrives weeks after Peyton Manning recorded the same exact stats in a match against the Baltimore Ravens. This rarely ever happens in the NFL so for it to occur twice in one season is simply sensational.
Denver is a team that was expected to play in the Super Bowl a year ago and is expected to do the same come February in 2014. Therefore, Manning doing that for a team of such brilliant caliber should not come as a surprise. He has what it takes to be the best QB in the business and he has proven so time and time again.
Now we switch over to Foles who simply erupted on the turf in Oakland in a performance that he will not be able to forget soon. He was finally able to utilize his skills under the quick playmaking style of Kelly and made it work to perfection. If he keeps up this same energy and precision, the Eagles should have no problems when it comes to scoring quickly and often.
