Eagles quarterback Nick Foles has been named Philadelphia's starter for the rest of the season. Coach Chip Kelly made the announcement Tuesday as the team returned from its bye week and began preparations for the Arizona Cardinals (7-4) on Sunday.
Foles, in his second season, replaced Michael Vick, who re-injured his hamstring in a loss to the New York Giants on Oct. 27. The Eagles have saved their season after a rocky start and he's been the focal point. Foles has played in parts of seven games this season. In five starts, he's 4-1, and overall, he has thrown for 1,554 yards with 16 touchdowns and no interceptions.
