THIS WEEK'S COVER: And then Nick Foles happened again! The Eagles' backup is now a Super Bowl starter. pic.twitter.com/bco0LuwcCR— Sports Illustrated (@SInow) January 23, 2018
Still crazy to think this is really happening. Nick Foles! The guy who went from potential franchise quarterback, to almost retiring early ... to Super Bowl starting quarterback.
This cover isn’t the first time Foles has been the face of SI, by the way. That was back in 2013.

For those saying “Oh no, it’s a jinx!” — please realize there is a New England Patriots cover as well.
And if you wanna believe the jinx angle, take that approach with SI’s Super Bowl prediction of the Patriots beating the Eagles by a final score of 27 to 16.
Underdogs once again.
