PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – The Eagles will not have to wait long to face the quarterback who won the franchise’s first Super Bowl. Nick Foles and the Jaguars host the Eagles during Week 2 of the 2019 preseason schedule.
Foles reached folk hero status in Philly when he took over after Carson Wentz tore his ACL in Week 14 of the 2017 season to lead the Eagles on a storybook run that ended with Foles out-gunning Tom Brady to win the Super Bowl LII MVP.
Now, the 30-year-old Foles has his chance to start with Jacksonville and gets an early look at his former teammates.
