Nick Foles named NFC Offensive Player of the Week

Super Foles

It's official: Nick Foles has been named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his performance against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Foles completed 22 out of 31 passes (71%) and threw for 296 yards, 3 TD and scored on a running TD as well.  He finished with a 133.3 QB rating in the Eagles win over the Bucs. It was undoubtedly a great performance from the second year player.

The Eagles young QB has played well when he's had the chance. In a very small sample size, he has the second best QB rating (127.9) only behind the league leading Peyton Manning.

The NFL season isn't even halfway through and already two Eagles have already won offensive player of the week awards. There's no doubt that Chip Kelly and his successful offense deserves some credit here too.

Some interesting facts here from Randall Liu, part of NFL Communications:

With Michael Vick looking unlikely to play against the Cowboys on 10/20, Foles will make his second start of the 2013 campaign on Sunday.
