Head coach Doug Pederson said on Monday afternoon that quarterback Nick Foles will start this Sunday in Washington. The Eagles need to win, and Minnesota must lose in order to make the playoffs.
Foles guided the Eagles on a 72-yard drive with just over two minutes remaining that ended with Jake Elliott's walk-off 35-yard field goal to give Philadelphia a 32-30 win over Houston. Foles set the franchise single-game record for most passing yards with 471 in the victory. It was his fourth 400-yard passing games, most in Eagles history, as well as his fourth four-touchdown performance of his career.
Pederson said that Foles was "fine" after taking a helmet to the chest area from Jadeveon Clowney on that final drive. Foles had the wind knocked out of him, and had to come out for a single play since he was tended to by the medical staff.
Quarterback Carson Wentz, who is sidelined with a back injury, will remain on the active roster.
