Nicholas Edward "Nick" Foles (born January 20, 1989) is an American football quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles of the National Football League. He has also played for the St. Louis Rams and Kansas City Chiefs.

Career summaryEdit

Foles played his first game with the Eagles in Week 10 of the 2012 season after Michael Vick left with an injury. Foles then made his first start the following week. In Week 9 of the 2013 season, he became the second quarterback to post a perfect passer rating (158.3) while passing for more than 400 yards, and also the first quarterback in NFL history to post a perfect passer rating and throw seven touchdowns in a single game. It was the 60th time in NFL history that a perfect passer rating was achieved overall.

After stints with the Rams and the Chiefs, Foles returned to the Eagles in 2017. After Carson Wentz was injured late in the regular season, Foles led the Eagles to the franchise's third Super Bowl appearance. The Eagles defeated the New England Patriots in Super Bowl LII for their first Super Bowl title, and Foles was named the game's MVP.

Personal lifeEdit

Foles is a Christian.[6] Foles is currently an online graduate student at Liberty University, earning his master's degree in divinity.[7] Foles has planned to become a pastor after his football career, saying, "I want to be a pastor [...] I took a leap of faith last year and signed up to take classes at seminary. I wanted to continue to learn and challenge my faith. It's a challenge because you are writing papers that are biblically correct."[8]

He married Tori Moore, who is the younger sister of former NFL tight end Evan Moore, in 2014.[9] Moore and Foles were briefly teammates with the Eagles in 2012.

The couple have a daughter, Lily James, born in 2017.[10]

Foles lives in a south New Jersey home in Haddonfield.[11]
