The last team you want to play in the postseason is the Eagles. When they're hot, they're one of the best teams in football. Just look at last year's Super Bowl run in case you forgot.
A lot of that has to do with the play of Nick Foles, who has lit a fire under this team to provide flashes of last year's dominance. As good as the veteran quarterback was last year, he's been even better lately.
In fact, he's been the best in the NFL.
In the final three games of the season, Foles led the league in passing yards, completion percentage, yards per attempt, and net yards on passing plays.
Nick Foles' three-game stretch to close out the season, along with league rank:— Sheil Kapadia (@SheilKapadia) January 2, 2019
Passing yards - 962 (1st)
Completion % - 77% (1st)
YPA - 8.5 (1st)
Net yards/pass play - 8.0 (1st)
You can't do better than the best.
Foles is going to have a chance to add to those numbers as he's set to start the team's Wild Card matchup against the Bears this weekend after he suffered a rib injury
That's bad news for the Bears, who would've loved to somehow avoid going up against the hottest QB in football.
Foles still has a lot on his plate going up against the best defense in the NFL while nursing an injury.
Regardless, you have to be afraid of the Eagles at this point. Foles can do no wrong.
