The Eagles quarterback was selected as a first alternate for the 2014 Pro Bowl to be played between the Conference Championship games and the Super Bowl. The Patriots victory over the Colts on Saturday night guaranteed that one of the six quarterbacks to selected to the Pro Bowl would be playing in the Super Bowl, thus, opening up a spot.
Foles, 24, is the third Eagle to be headed to Honolulu this year along with running back LeSean McCoy and left tackle Jason Peters. The Eagles signal-caller found tremendous success in his second year in the league. Foles threw for 2,891 yards, 27 touchdowns, and two interceptions in 13 games played but only 12 starts. His touchdown to interception ratio is remarkable and he tied an NFL-record with seven touchdown passes in a game on November 3rd in Oakland.
