Nick Foles wanted to get into game action, eh? He might be second-guessing that decision after taking this very potent pounding from Aaron Donald. The game's most punishing defensive player took a brutal shot on Foles early in Sunday night's second quarter.

Clay Matthews thinks this is roughing the passer.
Donald's Rams and Foles' Eagles have been a nice match thus far in this one, with Philly's new signal-caller embodying some of that postseason confidence he pulled out of nowhere last season.
But a few more of these hard hits can undo that confidence real quick.
Seems like Foles' throat took the brunt of it, based on the aftermath.
Mercy. Massage those tonsils, kid.
We're due for a tight one, but another one of these hard shots in the wrong spot, and it'll be Hollywood Nate Sudfeld under center.
