EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) Nick Foles isn't getting a three-week grace period in replacing Carson Wentz as the quarterback with the NFC East champion Philadelphia Eagles.
The Eagles (11-2) still have work to do in the regular season, and it begins Sunday when the 28-year-old Foles makes his first start against the reeling New York Giants (2-11) at MetLife Stadium.
The immediate goals are right there. If the Eagles win, they clinch a first-round bye. They claim the NFC's No. 1 seed - home-field advantage throughout - with a win and a loss by Minnesota (10-3).
