This offseason, the Chicago Bears traded to acquire quarterback Nick Foles. He most famous for his Super Bowl run with the Philadelphia Egles, but one of his better moments that is often forgotten about is when he torched the Houston Texans in 2018, screwing them out of the No. 2 seed in the AFC.

The Philadelphia Eagles entered the game with a 7-7 record, playing as underdogs against the 10-4 Texans. However, the underdog role has never intimidated Foles in his career, and he put up a monster day against a talented defense.

Foles completed 35-of-49 passes for 471 yards, four touchdowns and an interception. It was Zach Ertz and Nelson Agholor that were his favorite targets, with both finding the end zone and totaling over 100 yards.

More importantly, Foles was able to out-pace Deshaun Watson and the Texans offense. After being down by three at the half, Foles used a big third quarter to win the game, 32-30. Jake Elliott kicked a field goal as time expired to put the nail in the coffin.

While this was Foles' most recent 400-yard game, this was not his only one. His first came against the Oakland Raiders in 2013, when he had that dominant 406-yard, seven-touchdown game. Foles would go on to pass for over 400 yards against the Minnesota Vikings in 2013 and Arizona Cardinals in 2014.
