PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – If being on the cover of Sports Illustrated is still considered a jinx, the Eagles don’t have a quarterback who can escape it.
Nick Foles graces the cover of this week’s magazine, featuring a photo of Foles throwing the ball during their Snow Bowl win over the Lions.
Foles is the third quarterback on the Eagles roster to be on the Sports Illustrated cover. Michael Vick made a habit of it, gracing the cover five times, including during his college career, with the Atlanta Falcons, and during his run in 2010 with the Eagles. Matt Barkley was an SI coverman on August 18th, 2012, as quarterback of the USC Trojans.
The Eagles have won five consecutive games, and Foles ranks first in the NFL in passer rating.
