Foles completed 28 of 43 passes for 373 yards with three touchdowns and one interception in the Eagles' 41-33 win over the Patriots in Super Bowl LII on Sunday. He also caught a one-yard touchdown on a trick play late in the second quarter.

EDGE Analysis

Foles put quite the exclamation point on his improbable season with a spectacular performance against the Tom Brady-led Patriots, helping lead the Eagles to the first Super Bowl victory in franchise history. The 29-year-old connected with Alshon Jeffery on a beautiful 34-yard pass in the left corner of the end zone for the first touchdown of the game late in the first quarter, and he gave Philadelphia a 22-12 halftime lead when he caught a one-yard touchdown pass from Trey Burton just before intermission. He'd go on to add a 22-yard scoring dart to Corey Clement and then spearheaded a game-winning 14-play, 75-yard drive that culminated with an 11-yard touchdown pass to Zach Ertz with 2:21 remaining that survived replay review. Foles finished the regular season having completed 57 of 101 passes for 537 yards with five touchdowns and two interceptions while filling in for Carson Wentz (knee) following the latter's season-ending injury, but he projects to revert back to his backup role whenever Wentz is back to full health.

Foles said his ribs are "great" in the aftermath of Sunday's 38-7 win against the Vikings, Daniel Gallen of pennlive.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

During the NFC championship game, Foles was on the receiving end of some hits from the Vikings defense, which prompted "precautionary X-rays," per the quarterback. Adding credence to his assessment, his name wasn't mentioned among the few Eagles on the first injury report related to the Super Bowl, according to Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal. Foles enters the season finale on a two-game hot streak in which he completed 78 percent (49 of 63) of his throws, averaged 9.5 yards per attempt and tossed three touchdowns versus no interceptions.

Foles underwent precautionary X-rays on his ribs Sunday following the Eagles' 38-7 win over the Vikings in the NFC championship game, a source informed Sal Paolantonio of ESPN. "I'm good," Foles told Adam Schefter of ESPN after being examined in the locker room.

EDGE Analysis

If Foles was playing hurt Sunday it certainly didn't show, as the quarterback turned in the best outing of his five starts since replacing MVP candidate Carson Wentz (knee). Foles completed 26 of 33 passes for 352 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions, with the performance made all the more impressive considering it came against the NFL's top scoring defense. The Eagles could monitor Foles' practice reps carefully over the next two weeks leading up to Super Bowl matchup with New England, but it doesn't look like the rib issue will threaten his availability for that contest.

Foles was tremendous in Sunday's 38-7 NFC championship triumph over the Vikings, completing 26 of 33 passes for 352 yards and three touchdowns.

EDGE Analysis

Minnesota's defense was able to make Foles uncomfortable in the pocket early, but he did a great job of escaping and finding receivers downfield. He was most impressive on third down, converting 10 of 14 tries against a Vikings unit that had been historically proficient at getting off the field in such situations. Foles' touchdown passes of 53, 41 and five yards to Alshon Jeffery, Torrey Smith and Jeffery again, respectively, should have him brimming with confidence heading into the Super Bowl.

Foles completed 23 of 30 pass attempts for 246 yards in Saturday's 15-10 win over the Falcons.

EDGE Analysis

Foles managed the game efficiently, completing an impressive 77 percent of his passes while post a healthy 8.2 yards per attempt. He didn't find the end zone and mustered just one pass play longer than 21 yards, but he took care of the ball and avoided costly mistakes. Now that he's displayed that he can fill in competently enough to allow the team's other strengths to lead, Foles will lead the Eagles into next week's NFC championship game against either the Saints or the Vikings.

Head coach Doug Pederson reiterated Tuesday that Foles will be the Eagles' starting quarterback during the postseason, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

Earning the No. 1 seed in the NFC playoffs afforded the Eagles a first-round bye, and they'll use it to regroup around Foles, whose effectiveness devolved in each of his three starts in place of Carson Wentz (knee). In Week 17 against the Cowboys, in particular, Foles completed four of 11 passes for 39 yards and one interception before handing the reigns to second-year signal caller Nate Sudfeld, who ended the day 19-for-23 passing for 134 yards. With two weeks to prepare, Foles and the Eagles will host the first game of the divisional round on Jan. 13 at 4:35 p.m. ET.

Foles completed four of 11 pass attempts for 39 yards and one interception prior to his removal Sunday against the Cowboys.

EDGE Analysis

The team hardly deviated from their coming into the game to give Foles about a quarter's worth of work. He managed an underwhelming 3.5 yards per attempt and nearly fumbled the ball away before throwing an interception on the next play toward the end of the first period. Foles shined in his first start after the injury to Carson Wentz (knee), but he totaled just 202 yards and one touchdown compared to two interceptions over his final five quarters of play. That said, he'll look to right the ship before Philadelphia hosts a Divisional Round game on Jan. 13 or 14.

Foles is expected to start and play about one quarter in Sunday's regular-season finale against the Cowboys, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

With the Eagles locked in as the No. 1 seed throughout the NFC playoffs, head coach Doug Pederson can be judicious about using his starters, but understands Foles hasn't had much work with Philadelphia's recievers. He'll get enough work to stay sharp before he's pulled in favor of backup Nate Sudfeld.

Foles was taking the first-team reps at Thursday's practice and indicated that he's preparing to start Sunday against the Cowboys, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

EDGE Analysis

Though Foles won for the second time in as many starts Week 16 against the Raiders, it was the Eagles' defense that largely carried to the team to the victory, as the quarterback completed only half of his 38 passes for 163 yards and threw a fourth-quarter interception in the contest. The win locked up home-field advantage for the Eagles throughout the NFC playoffs, but with a first-round bye on tap, head coach Doug Pederson seemingly wants Foles to stay fresh and end the regular season on a high note. As a result, Foles should garner the starting nod again Sunday, but don't be surprised if he gives way to backup Nate Sudfeld at some point during the contest as the Eagles look to avoid further injuries at quarterback heading into the playoffs. Pederson already suggested earlier in the week that he would like to see Sudfeld play in the regular-season finale, per Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal.

Eagles head coach Doug Pederson suggested that Foles would start Sunday's game against the Cowboys, but the quarterback appears unlikely to play all four quarters, Martin Frank of The Delaware News Journal reports.

EDGE Analysis

In his second start of the season in place of Carson Wentz (knee) in Week 16, Foles led the Eagles to a 19-10 win over the 6-9 Raiders, but his performance against a porous defense didn't inspire much confidence with the playoffs rapidly approaching. Foles completed just 19 of 38 passes for 163 yards, one touchdown and an interception in the contest, so it appears Pederson is eager to have the signal caller conclude the regular season on a high note. Since the 13-2 Eagles have clinched home-field advantage throughout the playoffs, Foles may only direct a few drives before giving way to backup Nate Sudfeld as Pederson looks to preserve his key players during a mostly meaningless finale.
