Two more Foles touchdown passes have Eagles up 17-7

The wait for Nick Foles‘ first interception continues.

In the meantime, Foles has thrown two touchdown passes in the first half against the Cardinals to give his team a 17-7 halftime lead. Foles is 15-of-20 for 175 yards overall and threw a touchdown to Brent Celek just before halftime to open up the lead. That score came after a pass interference call on Jerraud Powers gave the Eagles the ball on the doorstep of the Arizona end zone and ended a half that saw the Cardinals inflict a lot of wounds on themselves.

Carson Palmer turned the ball over twice, protection breakdowns led to three sacks, dropped passes ended drives and a punt deflected off of Javier Arenas while he was blocking on a punt return. The Cardinals were able to recover the ball, although they nearly lost it before replay review ruled that Antoine Cason was down before fumbling the ball back to Philly.

Rashard Mendenhall has run well for the Cardinals, but they may not be able to stick with the ground game much longer if the Eagles can add to their lead in the third quarter. That would make it a fine time for them to be the team that solves the puzzle of intercepting Foles.

    QB Nick Foles will be great for many many years to come.

    Nick Foles has proven he belongs in this league as a starting QB. Thankfully the organization has finally pulled the plug on the “Michael Vick Experience”!!

    As a Pats fan I haven’t seen too much of the Eagles, just highlights and stats. I know you can’t crown him yet, but I’m starting to wonder if Foles isn’t the next Brady, kid outta nowhere in the perfect offense, with the perfect coach.

    Who cares? Arizona is awful on the road. Foles is out there throwing wobbly ducks to open TE’s.

    After years of suffering with mcnabb and Vick – eagles fans finally get a QB with a brain.

    Bruce Arians looks like one of the fat head cartoon sketches from Rocko’s Modern Life.

    All people have been saying is lets see what he does against avgood team and real defense. Now some are saying Arizona is horrible. How come some people can’t give Foles the credit he is due. No interceptions vs. 19 touchdowns. Another game with a passer rating over 100. But ya all he throws are wobbly ducks. If the Eagles win today the record will stand like this: 1-4 with Vick, 6-1 with Foles. Give the kid some credit.

    NFC East question….why was the NYG-WASH game not flexed out of Sunday night?

    No horse in this race, but the story of the game should be the awful awful officiating crew.

    Please don’t ever compare Foles to Brady. Foles doesn’t have a competitive advantage of knowing the defensive signals….
