Nick Foles, Quarterback

This is quite obvious that Nick Foles is a player to watch. After coming in for Mitchell Trubisky in relief, Foles lit up the field. He struggled early on, but he turned it on in the fourth quarter hitting every receiver perfectly to lead them to a victory.

Foles finished the game completing 55.2% of his passes for 188 yards, three touchdowns, one interception, and posting a 95.2 passer rating. Although those numbers aren’t mindblowing, a few missed plays changed the stats completely as the interception called on Allen Robinson.

This will be the first time Foles gets a start for the Bears actually against his former offensive coordinator Frank Reich. The Colts’ defense is very solid and could be a tough matchup for the Super Bowl MVP. They allow a league-low 132 yards passing per game. Granted, they played three questionable teams, but still impressive nonetheless.

The real question too will be how long the leash is now on Foles now that he is the guy. Will Matt Nagy give Foles a short leash much like Trubisky? Or will he have a much longer leash? A lot of questions we have about this Bears’ offense should be answered this week.
