Nick Foles gets amazing touchdown called back for illegal block (GIF)

The Philadelphia Eagles offense is one of the wonders of the NFL this season but it’s not immune to stupid mistakes. We’ve seen the offense make mistakes earlier int he season but once Nick Foles came in and became the starter, something just started clicking. But even with Foles in the game for the Eagles battle against the hapless Minnesota Vikings this Sunday, the mistakes are coming in inopportune moments for the Eagles.

Foles and the Eagles scored a pretty impressive touchdown on and end around reverse to DeSean Jackson. But after Foles handed the ball off, he got in the way in the worst form possible. Foles was called for a peel block as he came back to block a Vikings defender low and the touchdown was called back.

The Eagles still managed to score but it was a field goal and not a touchdown. Foles mistakes don’t come often but when they do, they take points off the board and the Eagles may end up needing all they can get against a Vikings team playing with heart on Sunday.
