The legend of Nick Foles continues to ascend to new heights.
The Philadelphia Eagles quarterback was named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week on Wednesday after throwing for a franchise-record 471 yards, four touchdowns, and an interception in the Eagles’ 32-30 win over the Houston Texans last Sunday.
The Arizona product engineered a game-winning drive, setting up a 35-yard field goal by Jake Elliott as time expired.
The Eagles are 2-0 since Foles took over for starting quarterback Carson Wentz, who is sidelined with a back injury. Under Foles, the Eagles have beaten the Texans and Los Angeles Rams, who have a combined 22-8 record.
The Eagles (8-7) are currently on the outside looking in for the playoffs heading into Week 17, but they have a decent shot of squeaking in as a Wild Card team. Philadelphia needs to beat the slumping Washington Redskins, then have the Chicago Bears beat the Minnesota Vikings.
