Eagles name Nick Foles Week 2 starter

Carson Wentz is still not ready to play. Therefore the Philadelphia Eagles are turning to Nick Foles again in Week 2, reports ESPN’s Tim McManus.This shouldn’t be considered a shock by any stretch, though. After all, a report last week from NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport suggests Wentz will still miss ‘several’ weeks.“Eagles QB Carson Wentz isn’t expected to play for a few more weeks… and everyone is OK with that. Nothing more important than the health of the face of the franchise.”It was true then and it’s true now. Despite a rough preseason and slow first game, Foles is more than capable of filling in. After all, he’s a Super Bowl-winning, big-game MVP. The Eagles are in a pretty good position when it comes to their quarterbacks. But Week 2 could be a tricky one for Philly. They take on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Sunday afternoon, who are fresh off a stunning 48-40 victory over the New Orleans Saints.We don’t know how long Fitzmagic will keep up, but we do believe that 18 points — how many the Eagles put up again
