The Eagles are back at it on the practice field as they prepare themselves to take on the Green Bay Packers this Sunday at Lambeau Field and QB Nick Foles got a bit of great news on Wednesday.
It comes to no shock to anyone that the 2nd year quarterback was named the NFC Offensive Player of The Week for week 9 for his record performance this past Sunday in the Eagles 49-20 victory over the Oakland Raiders. He is only the 3rd Eagles QB in franchise history to receive this honor twice or more in a season(QB Donovan Mcnabb-twice in 2000; QB Michael Vick-3 times in 2010)
Foles carved up the Raiders secondary for 406 yards and seven touchdowns, tying an NFL record for most passing touchdowns in a single game posting a perfect QB Rating of 158.3. He is the second player to reach this mark this season. QB Peyton Manning threw for seven scores week 1 against the Baltimore Ravens.
He also joins Manning as the only two quarterbacks this season to throw for 10 or more touchdowns and no interceptions to start the season(13 TDs) also setting an Eagles franchise record. And now Foles made his mark in the NFL as generations can remember his NFL record tying performance as his jersey, cleats, and football are now enshrined at the Pro Football Hall of Fame in Canton.
