The Philadelphia Eagles saw their magic carpet ride run come to an end on Sunday when a Nick Foles pass went through the hands of wide receiver Alshon Jeffery and into the hands of New Orleans Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore.
The 20-14 loss ended another great postseason run by Foles and in all likelihood, his Philadelphia Eagles career. Reportedly, teams are interested in the Super Bowl LII MVP’s services next season as a starter.
What a ride it was though.
Foles entered Sunday’s game as the highest rated passer in the history of the NFL Playoffs:
Unfortunately for Eagles fans, Foles saved one of his worst performances for his last performance with the Eagles. He posted a 61.3 passer rating, which is by far the worst postseason performance of his career.
Now, Foles awaits to make a decision on his future. While he was mum on his future in the aftermath of Sunday’s loss, Foles wants to become a starter, and rightfully so. He has shown more than enough over the past two seasons to show that he could be a capable starter.
While it’s unlikely the Eagles will pickup a $20 million roster option on Foles, Wentz’s injury history should be a concern for the Eagles. Nonetheless, if that was the end of Foles, it was an impressive ride to watch.
Here’s to you Nick:
Best of luck in your future endeavors.
