Last year, Eagles quarterback Nick Foles threw 317 passes. Two were intercepted.

This year, Foles has thrown nine passes. Two have been intercepted by the Bears. One was snagged by safety Ryan Mundy, and the other pick came from cornerback Sherrick McManis in the first quarter of Friday night’s game at Chicago.

Yes, it’s the preseason. No, it doesn’t count. But it’s an eyebrow-raiser for a guy who protected the ball so well a season ago.

Last year, Foles threw one pick in 42 preseason attempts. As a rookie, he threw two in 63 preseason attempts and five in 265 regular-season throws.

The second interception also was Foles’ final throw of the night. Mark Sanchez is now in the game. The over/under on a butt fumble is 0.5.
