Coach Chip Kelly confirmed Nick Foles will be his starting quarterback for the rest of the season.
Michael Vick (hamstring) is healthy, but he'll be the backup. It's an obvious move as Foles has gone 103-of-162 (63.6 percent) for 1,554 yards with 16 touchdowns and no interceptions on the season while leading the Eagles to five wins in their last seven games. Kelly said he made the announcement because he doesn't want Foles looking over his shoulder if he has a bad quarter or game. Operating the up-tempo offense with supreme command, Foles will be a fine QB1 the rest of the way. After this week's matchup against the Cardinals, he'll face the leaky defenses of the Lions, Vikings and Bears. If Foles shows well and leads the Eagles to the NFC East crown, he'll take a huge step toward becoming the team's franchise quarterback.
