Super Bowl LII Player Profile: Nick Foles

The Super Bowl match-up is set. We have the New England Patriots and the Philadelphia Eagles set to go head-to-head on Sunday, February 4th in the U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis, Minnesota. These are the top two seeds in the AFC and NFC, and were the best teams in the regular season. Now, it's time to come together and give our best Super Bowl bets. Before we do so, we want to get a good look at a player to watch in Super Bowl 52.

The Philadelphia Eagles represent the NFC in this year's Super Bowl. Calling the plays for Philly is back-up QB, Nick Foles. Foles, 29, who was picked up by the Eagles in the third round of the 2012 draft, had a great 2013 season where he threw for 27 touchdowns and two interceptions, earning him a spot in the Pro Bowl.

Foles parted ways with the organization after just three season. He went on to play 11 games in St. Louis, then found his way to Kansas City. After leaving the Chiefs, Foles returned to Philadelphia as the second string QB to Carson Wentz.

Wentz tore his ACL in a win over Los Angeles Rams in Week 14. Before stepping onto the field for the injured Wentz, Nick Foles had only thrown four passes all season. Foles then started the final three games of the season. Aside from putting up 34 against the lowly Giants, the Eagles struggled to score points in Wentz's absence.

Philadelphia's win over Minnesota has served as a reminder that Nick Foles can play. Having offensive weapons like WR Alshon Jeffrey and RB Jay Ajayi certainly helps. Can the back-up QB go down in history and earn himself a ring at Super Bowl LII?

Foles was absolutely deadly in the win over the Vikings. If the Eagles are going to take down the Patriots - it will need to come from the right arm of Nick Foles.
