Philadelphia Eagles coach Doug Pederson said on Monday that Nick Foles will remain the team's first quarterback at week 16 against the Houston Texans.
The Eagles did not say that their quarterback never felt healthier a matter of a week, now what?
No Carson Wentz, no problem, when Nick Foles re-entered and this time led the Eagles on Sunday night to a 30-23 confusion of the Rams in Los Angeles.  1 Related
Pederson told reporters that the Eagles would give the injured Carson Wentz another week to recover from his back injury, and that they will not yet place Wentz on injured reserves.
Foles, last season's Super Bowl MVP, led Philadelphia to an unlikely 30-23 win over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday night.
He finished 24 of 31 for 270 yards and an interception, leading the Eagles for the second time to the 30-point mark all seasons. Although Foles had not found the end zone, he hit the wide receiver Alshon Jeffery on eight passes for 160 yards.
The defending champions still have 7-7. Their chances of reaching the playoffs rose to 29 percent, according to ESPN's predictions for the Football Power Index. A loss would have lowered these chances to 5 percent.
Wentz has a stress break in his back that could take three months to recover, Pederson said, but he was not ruled out this season.
