Nick Foles enjoys big first half against Giants
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles had his way with the Giants in the first half Sunday night, throwing for 177 yards and two touchdowns with one interception before the break. Philly led 20-0 at halftime.

Foles didn't have to do much after halftime and finished 21 of 34 for 248 yards with two scores and two picks. It was the fourth time in six games Foles threw at least two touchdowns.

Foles threw both scoring passes to tight ends, hitting Zach Ertz for a 15-yard touchdown and James Casey for a 26-yard touchdown. Having thrown for 10 touchdowns against seven interceptions, Foles is off Week 7 before visiting Arizona on Oct. 26.

FFT Blog: What is ailing Nick Foles?
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

At the Fantasy Football Today blog, I looked at Eagles quarterback Nick Foles' struggles throwing the deep ball today. Foles is completing just 36.4 percent of his attempts past 10 yards over the last two games, a massive drop from his 57.8 percent completion rate a year ago. Key quote:

"Foles has completed 71.1 percent of his passes within 10 yards of the line of scrimmage, with no interceptions, which is actually an improvement over the 68.7 percent mark he posted a year ago. However, Foles' ability to throw the deep ball has disappeared, and with it much of his effectiveness."

Foles has a tough matchup on the way in Week 6 against the Giants, who have allowed just five touchdowns to eight interceptions in five games. Neither Dave Richard nor Jamey Eisenberg ranks Foles among the top-15 quarterbacks for Week 6.

Eagles' Kelly: Nick Foles' footwork issues are 'fixable'
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

After watching film of Sunday's 34-28 win against the Rams, Eagles coach Chip Kelly offered up his analysis of why quarterback Nick Foles has had a lot of passes get away from him when he throws off his back foot.

"I think sometimes when it happens, there's a rush, and he's trying to slide to the right or slide to the left, not setting his feet when he slides," Kelly said Monday, per the Philadelphia Daily News. "In terms of staying on top of it, staying in a good platform to throw the ball.

"I think it's fixable. It's just a matter of drill work, fundamentals, doing a lot of movement drills."

Kelly tried to explain also why Foles seemed to have better accuracy in 2013, when he tossed 27 touchdowns and two interceptions. He also completed 64 percent of his passes last season compared to 59.1 percent this season.

"I don't think we had as much pressure last year, to be honest with you," Kelly said. "I still think it's a combination of things. Sometimes it's little fundamental things, and we all gotta go back to work, and I think he understands that."

Lack of big plays hurting Nick Foles
by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles' numbers shielded him from some criticism early in the season, but his production has fallen off over the last few games. Is this cause for concern?

Foles bounced back from last week's pitiful effort, but still passed for just 207 yards, a far cry from the first three games of the season, when he averaged 326 passing yards per game. He has been missing the big play over the last two games, averaging just 5.0 yards per attempt with long plays of just 24 and 22 yards through the passing game -- Foles averaged 7.95 yards per attempt through three games, with plays of 50, 57 and 68 yards.

The big play has been an integral part of Foles' success since taking over as the starter last season, but he had some trouble completing long passes early. Whether he is gun-shy or this is just a bad stretch, Foles will have to find that part of his game if Fantasy owners are to rely on him.

Foles faces a tough test in Week 6, with the Giants on the schedule. They have allowed 20-plus Fantasy points to quarterbacks just twice in five games, and just held Matt Ryan to one score.

Nick Foles tosses two touchdowns in Week 5 win
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles completed 24 of 37 pass attempts for 207 yards, two touchdowns and one interception while rushing for 13 yards on two carries and losing a fumble in his team's 34-28 win over the Rams in Week 5.

After opening the season with three straight 300-yard performances, Foles has been severly limited in the last two weeks, though he managed to pick up a win Sunday to move to 4-1. His first touchdown came on a jump ball to Riley Cooper with only 30 second left in the first half. The quarterback's second touchdown came on a 24-yard strike to a wide-open Jeremy Maclin. Foles has managed 1,380 yards, eight touchdowns and five interceptions in his first five games. The Eagles will host the Giants in Week 6.
