against the Giants? not really a game...

I suppose if your gonna have your MVP caliber QB get a season ending injury, Foles aint a bad backup to have and 3 games left in the season is just the right amount of time to get him primed for a playoff run. I would be surprised if the Eagles offense isn't a tad bit more run oriented but not enough for defenses to put 8 in the box. They are still a legitimate SB contender, especially in the NFC which doesn't appear to have any clear cut SB favorite now.

If anything, losing Wentz just brings the Eagles back to the pack because with Wentz, the Eagles were the easy pick to win the NFC.. now it just looks a little more competitive...

Let's not forget, in '13 Foles threw 27 TD's with only 2 int's, with 7 of those TD's coming in one game.
He's NOT a Brett Hundley or a Case Keenum.
PLUS - the Eagles defense is one of the best in the conference.

The key to your post is 2013. Let's see where it goes. Fly Eagles Fly!

Wrong. Being a Giants fan since the mid 1950's I have learn that when the NFC East plays each other records go out the window's. Yes the Eagles should win but the Giants lost to Philly on a last second 61 yard field goal in Philly and the Giants did stay with Dallas for three quarters,the Giants are bad but the Eagles must still play the game.

I don't think the Eagles can go deep into the playoffs without Wentz. I hope I'm wrong, but then again, I've been an Eagles fan since the Norm Snead era, and they never miss a chance to disappoint.

Wentz is fun to watch ,Foles is not a bad player and he could help the Eagles like Jeff Hostetler did for the Giants in 1990 when Simms went down.This time of year you need a QB to manage a game and let the Defense win it,like the Ravens did.

Foles has not had a decent year since 2013 though. Time will tell, one game at a time.
