Through four games this season, the Philadelphia Eagles quarterback's passer rating has plummeted to 58.3 on passes of 20 or more yards.
So why the nosedive?
As we pointed out on the Around The NFL Podcast, Foles has been a liability in two of four games this season and mediocre in a third.
Foles conceded this week that he needs to be "a little more accurate," pointing to sloppy footwork as a culprit.
"Our guys are getting open," Foles said, via the Philadelphia Daily News. "I've just got to hit them. It doesn't have to be perfect, but it needs to be where they can go and make a play."
For the most part, that explanation checks out on game film.
Receivers are running free; Foles is still gunslinging; and the tattered offensive line has allowed the fifth-fewest sacks of any quarterback with at least 150 pass attempts.
Foles has simply held onto the ball too long and missed too many throws.
The differences from last season are three-fold.
Last year, Riley Cooper routinely won contested catches as one of the NFL's most dangerous downfield threats. This season, he's averaging roughly 10 fewer yards per catch while bringing up the rear among all qualified receivers in yards per route run.
