Outside of his seven-touchdown performance in Oakland earlier this season, this may have been the best game Nick Foles has had all season.

CB Brandon Boykin, who was knocked out of the Minnesota game with a head injury, and S Earl Wolff, who missed the last four games with a knee injury, were listed as probable against the Bears.

Vick was limited in practices all week, but head coach Chip Kelly has decided to hold off on making a call on his starting quarterback. It is likely Nick Foles will get the start against the Bucs, after replacing the injured Vick in the win over the Giants.
Two key defensive players are listed as probable for the Philadelphia Eagles heading into this weekend’s NFC East rivalry match-up against the New York Giants.
