The Philadelphia Eagles have run through a number of their quarterbacks already this year. Michael Vick started the season as the team’s starter and he has gone down with injuries a number of times. We all should have seen that happening. Nick Foles has come in and started a few times and he has gone down with injury. Rookie Matt Barkley has already gotten onto the field. How many quarterbacks can a team go through?

For Sunday’s game against the Oakland Raiders, the Eagles will trot out Nick Foles as the starter again. Michael Vick is out with a hamstring injury. Foles was a question mark because of a concussion, but he will be out on the filed leading the Eagles against the Raiders.

Foles has played in 5 games this season and has thrown for 622 yards and 6 touchdowns with no interceptions. He also has rushed for a touchdown. He will be facing off against a tough Oakland Raiders defense. The Raiders can bring the heat on quarterbacks. Foles will feel the pressure all day long.
