“He’s our starter moving forward,” head coach Matt Nagy said.

He began the team’s Week 3 game against the Atlanta Falcons on the bench. Then, when the Falcons had a large lead, Nagy made the switch.

The former No. 2 overall pick also had one touchdown pass and one interception.

After Foles came in, he went 16 of 29 for 188 yards. The veteran also had three touchdown passes and one interception.

All three of Foles touchdown passes came in the final 6:20 of the game. He hit Jimmy Graham, Allen Robinson II, and Anthony Miller for touchdown receptions.

“The gut feel is almost like a momentum-type deal,” Nagy said. “You realize that, ‘OK, we have 10 points on the board.’ Situationally, our goal going into this thing was we need to be effective in the red zone. We cannot come away with field goals. And that first drive, to have a field goal on that first drive, that field goal attempt, and then to miss it, drives me nuts. I don’t like that. I don’t want field goals.

“We’re struggling on third down. We have 10 points. And then you get to the third quarter and we’re struggling a little bit and it’s an interception and there’s just, you’re down 16, it ends up being a gut feel, you know what I mean? It’s what we felt at that time, what I felt. We went with it.”
