Several Philadelphia Eagles players are ready to put their support behind rookie quarterback Nick Foles if he is the starting quarterback against the Washington Redskins on Sunday.

Philadelphia Eagles' quarterback Nick Foles has earned the support of his teammates, via the Eagles official website, and they are ready to get behind him if he is the starting quarterback against the Washington Redskins on Sunday, Nov. 18.

Foles filled in for Michael Vick in the Eagles 38-23 loss to the Dallas Cowboys on Nov. 11 after Vick was knocked out of the game with a concussion. Foles went 22-of-32 for 219 yards with one touchdown and one interception. Offensive lineman Dennis Kelly said, "As soon as he came in the huddle it was, 'Alright, Nick. It's your offense now.'"

Cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie put his support behind Foles and said, "The main thing is guys have to pull together and rally around him and let him know that we believe in him."

Foles, a third-round pick of the 2012 NFL Draft out of Arizona, won the backup job in Philly with a strong preseason in which he posted a 110.1 quarterback rating.
