Jeremiah: Banner day in NFC East
Foles told Avant to run a post route instead of the standard shallow crossing route the play calls for.
"It's a route I normally don't run, and we got it, so it was just a great job by Nick," Avant said. "It wasn't something we had, but we made it work."
While Foles struggled in his first few starts since taking over for injured veteran Michael Vick, the rookie's poise down the stretch in Sunday's win showed why Andy Reid and the Eagles coaching staff had so much confidence in his ability coming out of the University of Arizona. Foles' teammates have a similar faith in the rookie.
"But he's not a rookie," Avant said. "We don't look at him like a rookie. The plays he's making and the decisions he's making, he's definitely not a rookie anymore."
