Foles named NFC Offensive Player of the Month


Philadelphia Eagles’ quarterback Nick Foles has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Month for November, according to multiple sources.

According to the NFL’s Director of NFC Football Communications, Randall Liu, Foles accomplished quite an impressive feat in his first month as the starter.

Foles completed 51 out of 72 passes (70.8%) for 932 yards with 10 touchdowns and zero interceptions.  Philadelphia beat the Oakland Raiders 49-20, the Green Bay Packers 27-13 and the Washington Redskins 24-16.

The recently anointed starting quarterback tied an NFL record with 7 touchdown hurls in the Oakland game on November 3rd.

As has been widely reported, head coach Chip Kelly announced that Foles will be starting for the rest of the regular season.

The Eagles rattling off of three-straight wins has put them in a tie atop the NFC East with the Dallas Cowboys at 6-5.  Relegated to backup duty, former starter Michael Vick has been hobbled by a hamstring injury in recent weeks.  Not that it would have mattered, Foles has been leading the team to wins – something the oft injured Vick had struggled with.

Philadelphia played only three games in November, but return to action December 1st following their bye week at home against the Arizona Cardinals.
