St. Louis Rams quarterback Nick Foles completed 16 of 24 passes for 171 yards and three touchdowns in Sunday's 24-22 upset win at Arizona Wildcats .
Facing a strong defense on the road, Foles made a number of nice throws, including a 47-yard bomb to Tavon Austin . He also showed a nice touch on his 18-yard touchdown to Stedman Bailey , perfectly placing the ball in the back of the end zone. It wasn't all on Foles' shoulders though, as rookie RB Todd Gurley stepped up with a career-high 146 yards. The Rams will travel to Green Bay in Week 5 for a tough matchup at Lambeau Field.
St. Louis Rams veteran wideout Kenny Britt (shoulder) is active for the game Sunday at Arizona.
Nick Foles has spread the wealth this season, and Britt will have even more competition for targets with Brian Quick making his season debut. With a tough Cardinals defense on tap - they've given up only 27 catches for 340 yards and two touchdowns on 52 targets to wide receivers this season - Britt will have even greater difficulty making an impact in Week 4.
The Rams offensive line struggled Sunday, as running backs Tre Mason, Benny Cunningham and Todd Gurley combined for 37 yards on 16 carries. Foles was also sacked twice.
He connected with seven different receivers and seems to have developed chemistry with wideout Kenny Britt, who caught seven passes on 10 targets for 102 yards after catching a touchdown pass in Week 2. While the two are playing well together, there isn't much upside in Week 4 against the Cardinals in Arizona.
Foles relayed that his ankle was rolled on near the end of Sunday's game, but it wasn't serious enough to hinder his practice participation. With a friendly matchup on tap against the Steelers, who have surrendered 623 passing yards and six touchdowns through two games, he could be a sneaky play in Week 3.
Foles sustained the injury on the final drive of the contest, and afterward, he was examined and potentially worked on in the training room. Wagoner relayed that the next opportunity to provide an update on Foles' status arrives Tuesday, when the Rams' next practice takes place. In two games under center in St. Louis, he's 35-of-59 passing (59.3 percent) for 447 yards and two touchdowns, which he's supplemented with another score on the ground.
