Head coach Chip Kelly left the door open early last week for Nick Foles to win the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback job if he went 100-100 with 20 touchdowns. Foles wasn’t perfect Sunday, but he was damn good.

Foles went 22-31 for 296 yards and 4 touchdowns. Foles had a sizzling 133.3 passer rating against a Tampa Bay Buccaneers team that has completely mailed it in. Foles had perfect day turnover wise, committing an un-Michael-Vick-like zero turnovers.

Of course, the first questionKelly had to answer after the game was in regard to who was going to be his starter going forward. Kelly, in his naturally stoic manner, wouldn’t commit to either quarterback minutes after the ballgame.

We’ll evaluate everything. We’ll go back and watch the film.”

Kelly said last week that he could never rule anything out, and I think he’ll take the week to figure out which quarterback gives them the best opportunity to win going forward against more inspired competition.
