The Philadelphia Eagles simply barely squeaked into the playoffs this weekend after defeating the Washington Redskins 24-Zero on Sunday. Quarterback Nick Foles threw two touchdowns within the recreation and threw 25 straight completions. Not to say he led the staff to 5 straight wins which is what propelled them into the playoffs. Despite that, an harm in Sunday’s recreation prevented him from incomes a $1 million bonus.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Foles needed to lead the staff to the postseason and play in 33% of the staff’s performs on Sunday so as to earn an additional $1 million. During the sport, Foles bruised his ribs which compelled him out of the match early. When all was stated and executed, Foles has performed 32% of the staff’s snaps, that means he was just one p.c away from his goal.
Luckily for Foles and the Eagles, the Super Bowl-winning quarterback will be capable of play subsequent weekend within the staff’s wild-card matchup in opposition to the Chicago Bears, in line with Complex.
Even although Foles missed out $1 million, he’ll in all probability stand to make a few bucks if he could make one other Super Bowl run with the Eagles this 12 months. Although it is going to be robust with groups just like the New Orleans Saints and Los Angeles Rams dominating the NFC this season.
