In a move that should surprise absolutely no one, the Philadelphia Eagles have announced that they will be starting Nick Foles at quarterback, when they take on the wounded Green Bay Packers in Week 10 of the regular season.

Foles is coming off an incredible 400 yard, seven touchdown performance against the Oakland Raiders just a week ago, and they hope that he will be able to keep that momentum rolling against the Packers defense.

It won’t be easy to get the win, but the Eagles have a better chance than ever thanks to the absence of Packers star quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who suffered a broken collarbone against the Chicago Bears during last week’s game.

If the Eagles can shut down the Packers offense and Seneca Wallace, they will leave the door open for Foles to lead the team to their fifth win of the season as they hope to remain in contention for the NFC East crown.

Will Nick Foles be able to shine again in Week 10? Sound off in the comments section below.
