Eagles Chances Hinge On Carson Wentz’s Health

Nick Foles can’t bail them out anymore

Carson Wentz threw for 3,074 yards with 21 touchdown passes to just seven interceptions in Philadelphia Eagles’ first 11 contests (5-6) of the 2018 campaign, but unfortunately he couldn’t avoid the injury bug for the second-straight year. Nick Foles once again stepped in to save the day, as Philly went 4-1 under his leadership to finish the year 9-7 before pulling off an opening-round playoff victory over the Chicago Bears on the road. They held a lead in the next round against the New Orleans Saints before Drew Brees and company came roaring back and eliminated them. 

In seven games played, including the playoffs, Foles finished with a QB rating of 83.3 and completed 66.0 percent of his passes along with 10 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Overall, it was a disappointing regular season, but the team proved to be dangerous in the playoffs. Now without Foles, who signed a free-agent deal with the Jacksonville Jaguars this offseason, the future relies almost solely on the shoulders of Wentz, who is entering his pivotal fourth season in the league.
