Eagles

Nick Foles is a human stat machine. He set records in his historic 2013 season, he set records in last year's postseason, and he's still setting records.

Let's take a look at some of Foles' craziest statistical achievements.

He did it again
Foles is the sixth QB in NFL history with two career games with 400 yards, 4 TDs and a 70 percent completion percentage. He had 406 yards, seven TDs and 79 percent accuracy in his legendary game against the Raiders in Oakland in 2013 and 471 yards, 4 TDs and 71 percent accuracy against the Texans on Sunday. The others are Drew Brees (3), Ryan Fitzpatrick (2, including one against the Eagles this year), Peyton Manning (2), Dan Marino (2) and Aaron Rodgers (2).

Third-down stats you won't believe
Foles on Sunday put up these numbers on 3rd and 4th down: 15-for-16, 193 yards, 3 TDs, 0 INTs and a near-perfect 156.5 passer rating. Over the last two years, Foles has the highest passer rating in the NFL on third or fourth down at 123.9. That’s on 79-for-111 for 944 yards with 9 TDs and 0 INTs. Pat Mahomes is second (115.8) and Carson Wentz is third (110.6).

More insane 3rd-down numbers 
In his last seven games — since the start of last year’s playoffs — Foles’ third- and fourth-down numbers are almost unbelievable: 65-for-80 for 814 yards, eight touchdowns and no interceptions for a 142.4 passer rating. In the second half of those games, he's even better — 31-for-37 for 329 yards, 5 TDs, 0 INTs and a 143.3 rating. That's six incomplete passes out of 37 attempts on third or fourth down in the second half since last year's postseason began.

 

Ridiculous accuracy
Foles has completed 70 percent of his passes in three straight games, which is the second-longest streak ever by an Eagles quarterback behind only Wentz’s streak of four straight 70 percent games earlier this year — a streak that began and ended after Foles’ streak began. As a team, the Eagles this year are completing 69.6 percent of their passes. That’s 10th-highest in NFL history with one game left.

Loving the Linc
Foles lost all three of his starts at the Linc as a rookie in 2012 and then his first home start of 2013, a 17-3 loss to the Cowboys. Since then he’s won 11 straight meaningful regular-season home starts — his last four of 2013, all four in 2014 and then vs. the Raiders last year and the Falcons and Texans this year. If you include the playoffs, he's 13-1 at the Linc since that 2013 Dallas game.

Piling up the yards
Foles has played 53 games in his career and has four 400-yard games. Only two QBs — Matt Stafford and Dan Marino — had more 400-yard games in their first 53 career games, six for Marino and five for Stafford. 

Big plays
The 83-yard TD pass to Nelson Agholor was the longest pass of Foles’ career and the Eagles’ longest TD pass since Michael Vick’s 91-yarder to DeSean Jackson at Dallas in 2010. The last longer TD pass by an Eagles QB at the Linc was Donovan McNabb’s 90-yarder to Hank Baskett against the Rams in 2008. 

December heroics
Foles’ 471 yards Sunday are fourth-most in NFL history in December, behind only Warren Moon’s 527 against the Chiefs in 1990 and two games by Ben Roethlisberger — 506 vs. the Ravens in 2017 and 503 against the Packers in 2009.  

Historic performance 
Foles on Sunday became only the eighth QB to throw for 470 yards and four or more TDs while completing 70 percent of his passes.

Chasing Donovan
Foles has the 14th-most starts in Eagles history, but only Donovan McNabb has more career games with a passer rating over 120. McNabb had 16 and Foles now has eight.
