Eagles QB Nick Foles Critical of His Play During the Eagles 19-10 Win Over Oakland

In Monday night’s last-minute win over the Raiders, Nick Foles showed why he’s a backup. The quarterback completed 19-of-38 passes for 163 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

Foles often held the ball too long, missed receivers high or in the dirt, and rarely hit targets in stride. The veteran backup was particularly woeful on third downs, where the Eagles went 1-14, Kevin Patra of NFL.com reports.

“I didn’t play good enough. I have to play cleaner and, obviously, play better,” Foles said after the win.

“Third down is a big thing with a quarterback; pin-point accuracy, making good decisions. I’ll look at the film, I’ll improve. These wins are tough; wins in the NFL are tough. This was a crazy, sloppy game. I thought our defense played wonderful — giving us an opportunity — I believe it was five turnovers. That’s huge, that was big.”
