Posted November 07, 2013 on AP on Fox
Just a few days ago, Curtis Marsh was out of football. On Sunday, he could be starting at cornerback for the Philadelphia Eagles. Marsh, a third-round draft pick of the Eagles in 2011, was cut by the team in training camp. He was then signed by the Cincinnati Bengals and released a few weeks later. With just four cornerbacks on the roster, and one of them, starter Bradley Fletcher, hampered by a pectoral injury he sustained in last Sunday's win over Oakland, the Eagles reached out to Marsh. They signed him Tuesday. Fletcher has yet to practice fully this week, and if his condition does not improve, either Marsh, or Roc Carmichael could start opposite Cary Williams at corner when the Eagles travel to Lambeau Field to take on the Green Bay Packers.

Nick Foles' success is pushing Michael Vick out of Philadelphia

Nick Foles rocks Oakland as he shreds the Raiders for seven touchdown passes and 406 yards in the Eagles 49-20 victory on Sunday.  Just how good was the second year quarterback for Philly?   Well, for starters, he threw more touchdowns than incompletions (as he was 22/28 passing the ball).  He took only one sack and just about every one of his passes were on target.  Three of...
