Foles Wins Award For 7-TD Performance


LeSean McCoy wasn't the only Eagle to receive an award during the NFL Honors ceremony on Saturday night. Quarterback Nick Foles, who finished the 2013 season as the league's highest-rated passer with a 119.2 quarterback rating and threw 27 touchdown passes to only two interceptions, was honored for his most memorable performance of the season.

Before Foles became the undisputed signal-caller for the Eagles, before he led the team atop the NFC East and into the playoffs, he first had to bounce back from the worst performance of his career and help turn around the fortunes of the 3-5 Eagles. So on November 3, two weeks after he suffered a concussion in a loss to the Dallas Cowboys, Foles returned to the starting lineup against the Oakland Raiders. You know the story from there -- seven touchdowns later, Foles had thrown himself into the record books and the Eagles back into the playoff mix.

For his work, Foles was awarded the "Greatness on the Road" award during Saturday's NFL Honors proceedings.
