NFL: Houston Texans at Philadelphia Eagles Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Nick Foles has rightfully been named NFC Offensive Player of the Week for his strong performance during the Philadelphia Eagles’ Week 16 win over the Houston Texans.

In a must-win game for the Eagles, Foles completed 71.4% of his attempts for 471 yards (9.6 average), four touchdowns, one interception, and a 120.4 passer rating. Foles was especially clutch for Philadelphia as the reigning Super Bowl MVP led the team to a game-winning field goal drive despite taking a huge shot to the chest from Jadeveon Clowney.

This award marks the first time Foles has been named NFC Offensive Player of the Week since his seven touchdown performance against the Oakland Raiders in 2013. It’s well deserved.

Foles has also been nominated for the Week 16 FedEx Air Player of the Week award. You can [CLICK HERE] to vote for him.

If the Eagles don’t get the help they need to make the playoffs, it’s very possible Foles is making his last start with Philadelphia this Sunday against Washington. If that’s the case, he’s sure doing his best to end his Eagles career on a high note.
