It's hard to explain just how impressive Nick Foles has been.
His 4-1 career postseason record certainly helps, but the numbers go far beyond that. We're at the point where Foles isn't just in the conversation of the greats. He's surpassing them!
Foles now leads all quarterbacks with the highest passer rating in postseason history.
All-Time Leaders in Postseason Passer Rating (min. 150 attempts) [of 73 qualifying]— Scott Barrett (@ScottBarrettDFB) January 7, 2019
1. Nick Foles (105.3)
2. Bart Starr (104.8)
3. Kurt Warner (102.8)
4. Matt Ryan (100.8)
5. Drew Brees (100.7)
Drew Brees of the New Orleans Saints may be the best quarterback in this weekend's matchup, but the man across from him is proving to be no cake walk.
Foles had the worst postseason game of his career this Sunday and still completed 62 percent of his passes while throwing for 266 yards two touchdowns and two picks. If that's the floor for this guy, it's no surprise that he's leading all QBs in passer rating.

Foles' dominance shouldn't take away praise from Brees, who has clearly had a dominant postseason career of his own -- and a much longer one at that. He's played nearly triple the amount of playoff games as Foles has, which goes to show his passer rating is much more than just a hot streak.
The Super Bowl champs may have gotten smoked when they played the Saints earlier in the year, but it's a whole different ball game with playoff Foles at the helm.
