Nick Foles Had Some Big Throws on Sunday

The legend of Nick Foles grew even bigger in Philadelphia on Sunday. His legend status in the City of Brotherly Love is now almost the size of what's (allegedly) inside his jockstrap.

After witnessing last year's games like the awful Raiders game, or the amazing win over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII, you never really know what you're gonna get when Nick Foles is under center. On Sunday we found out we were gonna watch the latter.

In the 2nd-Quarter, Nick Foles threw an absolutely beautiful over-the-shoulder pass to Alshon Jeffery on 3rd-down.

That throw seemed to be when Nick Foles began to shake off any rust he had from not playing a game in over 12 weeks.

Later in the 2nd quarter, the Eagles had a chance for one final drive before the half to put the Eagles up before getting the ball to start the 2nd half. Once again he found his favorite target Alshon Jeffery for two big catches (one of them on 3rd down) to eventually get the Eagles into the endzone.

Foles continued his fantastic night in the 2nd half, when he was able to find two wide-open receivers on the same play and he let them decide who wanted the catch.

Foles was extremely fortunate he got the ball off when he did, because a split-second later and he either would have taken a sack, or his ball would have been altered so much that it would have been intercepted. If Ndamukong Suh wasn't in his face he would have been able to step into his throw more and lead either one of his two receivers with his pass for a touchdown. The Eagles were still able to get into the endzone on that drive too.

With no room for error in these final two games coming up, the Eagles will need this Nick Foles to show up if they want to make to make a playoff run. One thing is certain though, this guy is capable of doing anything.
