PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Nick Foles has started only five games for the Eagles this season, but he’s making quite an impression.
Foles tied the NFL record for most touchdown passes in one game with seven, set the NFL record for highest quarterback rating in a calendar month (152.8 in November), got the Eagles offense back on track, thrown 16 touchdown passes without an interception, won NFC Offensive Player of The Month, and won the starting job away from Michael Vick.
Now he’s part of the MVP discussion.
According to Bovada, Foles is 50/1 to win the NFL MVP. Peyton Manning is the favorite at 4/11, Drew Brees at 3/1, Cam Newton at 12/1, Tom Brady at 12/1, Russell Wilson 33/1, Calvin Johnson at 33/1, and then Foles.
The Eagles are now 40/1 odds to win the Super Bowl, 18/1 to win the NFC, and even odds to win the NFC East (Cowboys are 10/11).
