But has he endeared himself enough to become the starter for years down the road?
With each week that goes by, the answer looks more and more like a "yes."
Chip Kelly stated earlier in the week that Foles would be the Eagles starting quarterback "for the next 1,000 years." Granted, Kelly was exaggerating to get the reporters to stop asking questions about it but Kelly might be on to something.
Foles' starting status for next season already looked pretty good but news from Eugene, Oregon this week further solidified the fact. Oregon Ducks QB Marcus Mariota, a consensus pick among Eagles fans to rejoin former head coach Chip Kelly in Philadelphia, announced that he would be staying in school and not entering the draft.
That had to make Foles a little more relieved. The 24-year-old is completing over 63% of his passes for 1,791 yards, 19 touchdowns, and no interceptions - one touchdown away from tying Peyton Manning's NFL record for more touchdown passes to start a season without an interception. It would be the second NFL record of Manning's that Foles would tie this year, joining his seven touchdowns in one game.
On Sunday, Foles also broke the Eagles franchise record for most passes without an interception (233) breaking Michael Vick's record of 224 set in 2010.
If this season is any indication, the Eagles quarterback job belongs to Foles and fans seem like they are in good hands.
