Klayman: Brains and Experience Will Always Win Out! Carson Wentz Has More Physical Talent, but Nick Foles Is a Winner! Eagles Would Be Stupid to Trade Him! Trade Wentz!

Although it seemed unlikely coming into Sunday, and even more unlikely several weeks out, we all kind of knew this would happen. The Nick Foles-led miracle Eagles have scratched their way back into the playoffs, edging out the Minnesota Vikings for the NFC's second Wild Card spot. This could only happen with some added help from, well, the Vikings, alongside a 24-0 victory over a putrid, wilting Washington team.
Foles was gifted a Week 17 matchup against Washington, who've been sputtering along in the lower reaches of the depth chart since Alex Smith suffered a possible career-ending injury in Week 11. On Sunday, Foles followed last week's 471-yard, four-touchdown victory against the Texans with a more surgical outing. He bounced back from a first quarter interception to eventually fire off 25 consecutive completions, tying the NFL record set by Philip Rivers and Ryan Tannehill. Josh Johnson and the Skins couldn't get anything going on Sunday, with the third-stringer finishing 12-27 with 91 yards and a pick. Decimated on both sides of the ball by injuries, Washington rarely found themselves in enemy territory.
