No Carson Wentz, no problem.

In his first start since taking over as the Philadelphia Eagles’ starting quarterback, Nick Foles completed 24 of 38 passes for 237 yards and four touchdowns in a 34-29 road win over the New York Giants.

The former Arizona Wildcats standout helped the Eagles erase a 20-7 deficit en route to their 12th win of the season. Foles finished with a 115.8 quarterback rating

The Eagles clinched a first-round bye with the victory, and will rely on Foles throughout the playoffs as Wentz is sidelined with a season-ending knee injury.

Here’s a look at Foles’ four touchdown passes.
