Foles showed the right stuff during Week 6 against a stout Tampa defense

Quarterback Nick Foles is in line to start the Eagles Week 7 home matchup against the Dallas Cowboys. He’s practicing with the first team while Michael Vick is telling the media that he that he’s in pain.

Foles shined during Week 6 against Tampa missing on just nine of his pass attempts. He finished the day with 296 yards and three touchdowns hitting 22 of 31 pass attempts.  

With Foles’ strong performance, fantasy owners naturally must start wondering if it was a good enough outing for him to earn a starting role.

One of the most important stats for Foles this weekend was zero turnovers. It is unknown whether or not Vick will miss the Eagles matchup with their division rivals Dallas Cowboys next week.

If Foles can get the start and continue to show his ability to make smart decisions with the football, a full-time starting job may not be out of the question for him.
