2015 Outlook: Bye Week Fill-inLast updated on Nov-17-2015 by Shawn Childs
UPDATE (11/17): The Rams have benched Nick Foles in favor of Case Keenum. The offense needs a spark because they can't put all their eggs in the Todd Gurley basket every single week. Needless to say, Foles' 2015 season has been a bust.
Nick was the key reason for the Eagles' success over the second half of the season in 2013. He went 10-2 as a starter with only two interceptions in 317 pass attempts while throwing 27 touchdowns. That stretch included a 402-yard, seven-TD game versus the Oakland Raiders. He posted his second 400-yard outing later that season against the Vikings. As attractive as his resume looks, Foles ended only one game with more than the league average in pass attempts. His success was driven by an amazing 9.1 yards-per-attempt average. Foles completed 64.0 percent of his passes for 2,891 yards. He even chipped in with 221 rushing yards and three scores on the ground. In 2014, Foles went 6-2 with three 300-yard efforts and one 400-yard game. He notched at least two TDs in five of his eight starts. A broken collarbone suffered in Week 9 cut his season short. Last year, the Rams attempted only 32.2 pass attempts per game, the 10th-fewest in the league. This year's team will be built around a solid defense and a ball-control offense. St. Louis has some talent at wideout, but it lacks an impact player. Since Foles won't throw much more than 500 times, he'll record 3,500 yards at best if he can complete 60 percent of his passes. He may put 20-25 TDs. A tough NFC West and the lack of a proven WR lower his upside.
