Nick Foles won a Super Bowl with the Philadelphia Eagles in 2017, but he actually started with the franchise as a third round draft pick back in 2012. After a combined 14-4 record in 2013 and '14, Foles was traded to the St. Louis Rams for Sam Bradford. After one failed season as the starter with the Rams, the quarterback spent one year as the backup with the Kansas City Chiefs before making his way back to Philly.

The rest is history, but maybe Philadelphia was always where Nick belonged. His best stats have always been with the Eagles, including this memorable performance.

These seven touchdown passes contributed to an impressive campaign where Foles had a 27-2 TD-to-interception ratio. His quarterback rating was 119.2 for the season. The Eagles won the NFC East that year, but lost to the New Orleans Saints in the first round of the postseason.

In hindsight, maybe the Eagles should have held on to Nick Foles, but who knows how things might have turned out if they did. Perhaps Carson Wentz would be on a different team, perhaps Philly never wins their 2017 Super Bowl, or perhaps it wins even more behind the magic of Foles in Philadelphia.
