Foles' Pro Bowl Jersey Off To HOF

Posted Feb 11, 2014

For the second time in about four months, Nick Foles is sending some of his gear to the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

Earlier this season, the Hall of Fame asked for Foles' game-worn jersey and cleats from the Eagles' matchup with the Oakland Raiders, during which Foles threw for an NFL-record seven touchdowns. Foles' uniform, along with the ball he tossed for the record touchdown, was displayed in Canton. This time, the Eagles quarterback is sending his Pro Bowl jersey off to Ohio.

As many fans may know, this season's Pro Bowl was the first time that the game was unconferenced; instead of AFC versus NFC, the Pro Bowl teams were assembled using a draft by two team captains, NFL greats Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders. To commemorate the new Pro Bowl format, the Hall of Fame will display the jerseys of the Offensive and Defensive MVPs. Foles took home the offensive award for Team Sanders, while Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Derrick Johnson took home Defensive MVP for Team Rice. The two players were on separate teams, so this way the Hall of Fame will be able to showcase both of the new uniforms used this year.

Foles finished the game 7-of-10 passing for 89 yards. His 12-yard touchdown pass to Cleveland's Jordan Cameron put Team Sanders ahead 21-14, but Team Rice came away with a 22-21 victory after scoring in the game's final minute.

This is the third time this season that the Eagles have sent gear to Canton. Aside from Foles' two submissions, LeSean McCoy also sent his jersey and cleats from the Snow Bowl victory over the Detroit Lions, during which he rushed for a franchise-record 217 yards.
