Despite their struggles early in the year, rookie quarterback Nick Foles has brought some life to the Eagles in recent weeks. In Week 15, Foles will look to lead Philadelphia to a second-straight win as they square off with the Bengals.
Foles ended the team's eight-game losing streak last weekend with a last-minute drive. He completed 32 of his 51 pass attempts for 381 yards and two touchdowns, which was good for a quarterback rating of 98.6. Many have anointed him the next face of the franchise, and he'll get a chance to make a name for himself in front of a national audience this evening.
While the Eagles are likely out of the playoff running in 2012, the Bengals remain right in the middle of a wide-open AFC playoff picture. Cincinnati enters with a 7-6 record, although they're coming off a heartbreaking last-second loss to the Cowboys. Given that it's a short turnaround with the Thursday kickoff, it'll be interesting to see how young quarterback Andy Dalton responds with a limited amount of time to prepare.
