Philadelphia Eagles: Time For Nick Foles To Earn His Wings
Last week was a test. It was a game against a skilled defense, one that had fans guessing if the Philadelphia Eagles would step up to the challenge. They managed to play well enough to get a win, and this week the challenge is even greater. We know what the defense faces in stopping one of the greatest receivers in the game, Calvin Johnson. If the Eagles want to win, it will come in a shootout. This is the game, and the defense, where Nick Foles can air it out and show he is up to a serious opponent in late-season football.
The Detroit Lions can stop the run and have some of the best and dirtiest linemen in the league. Their weakness is their corners and secondary, which puts the game squarely on Foles and his right arm. He will need DeSean Jackson and Riley Cooper to get open and down the field. They should have plenty of chances, and with the Lions’ firepower on offense, they will need to score points to win.
So far this season, this game will be the largest giant Foles must overcome. If he can stay true to his accuracy and anticipation skills, they will have a shot at a win. If he avoids any bad choices and keeps taking shots, the game will stay in reach. Chip Kelly needs to also buy in to this philosophy and not take his foot off the gas. The Eagles must play four quarters of football and slam the door on the Lions. If they can pull this off, it will go far to show that Foles, Kelly and the rest of the Eagles are a true force to be faced in the final weeks of the season.
