At this rate, Nick Foles is going to be the first quarterback inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame before he’s named a starter. OK, we’re exaggerating. A little. But Chip Kelly continues to decline to name Foles his permanent starter, and Foles continues to put up remarkable numbers. On Sunday at Lambeau, Foles wasn’t at his best. He underthrew DeSean Jackson on a deep ball, he turned the football over for the first time this year, he was sacked three times, he held onto the ball too long a few times … and when the dust had settled, his numbers, once again, were excellent. Foles, coming off his NFL-record seven touchdown passes against the Raiders, completed 12 of 18 passes for 228 yards, three touchdowns, no interceptions Sunday as the Eagles went into Lambeau Field and left with their fourth straight road win, 27-13, over the Packers. It was the biggest margin of victory by an opposing team at Lambeau Field in seven years. Foles fashioned a passer rating of 149.3, highest ever by an visiting quarterback against the Packers – either at Lambeau Field or at County Stadium in Milwaukee, where the Packers used to play three times a year. Foles did not throw an incomplete pass in the second half -- 6 for 6 for 113 yards and two touchdowns. He became the first quarterback in NFL history to record a passer rating of 149 or higher in consecutive games and only the 13th to do it twice in a season. Foles now has 16 touchdown passes and no interceptions this year. Only one quarterback – Peyton Manning this year – has thrown more TDs in a season before his first interception. His passer rating of 132.5 is second-highest in NFL history after 10 games among quarterbacks who’ve thrown at least 100 passes. Tom Brady was at 134.0 after 10 games in 2007.
