NIck Foles Wins Offensive MVP Award At Pro BowlBREAKING NEWS, Eagles, News, Quarterbacks Monday, January 27th, 2014
This has been an amazing year for Eagles quarterback Nick Foles. He came out of nowhere to win the team’s starting quarterback position, while having some Hall of Fame level performances. Fittingly, his season finished up with another outstanding performance by the young quarterback and this time it was at the Pro Bowl.
In much the same fashion that he began the Eagles season as a backup, Foles was the next to last pick in the Pro Bowl draft process. It’s taken him a year, but he may have won over most Eagles fans, but he hadn’t impressed NFL Hall of Famers Deion Sanders and Jerry Rice to the point where they were anxious to have him on their teams. That’s why he was drafted ahead of only one player, Alex Smith.
Foles waited for most of the game to get his chance and when he did he made the most of it. The Eagles signal caller may have won over Sanders and Rice, after winning the Pro Bowl Most Valuable Offensive Player Award.
Foles was one of four Eagles selected to the Pro Bowl. During his MVP performance, he completed 7 of 10 passes for 89 yards and a touchdown throw to Cleveland tight end Jordan Cameron.
DeSean Jackson caught the first touchdown pass of the game from Andrew Luck on a flea flicker play. LeSean McCoy didn’t do much. He carried the ball three times before being sidelined with an ankle injury.
