According to a release from the NFL, Eagles quarterback Nick Foles has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Month for the month of November.
Foles joins Randall Cunningham, Donovan McNabb, and Michael Vick as the only other Eagles quarterbacks to win this award. That's some good company to be associated with.
Foles has obviously played well since he's taken over for an injured Michael Vick. Foles threw for an NFL record tying seven touchdowns when the Eagles beat the Oakland Raiders a few weeks back. He put up strong performances against the Packers and Redskins after that.
Foles finished the month of November with 70.8% of passes completed for 932 yards and 10 touchdowns. Foles also accumulated a QB rating of 152.8 for the month. That's the highest QB rating ever recorded in a calendar month ever.
The Eagles are most recently on a three game winning streak with him as the starter. Eagles coach Chip Kelly formally announced Foles will be the team's starting quarterback moving forward. Foles' next big challenge is to continue to play hot down the stretch and help lead this Eagles team to the playoffs.
For now, congratulations, Nick! Well deserved.
