Nick Foles' last NFL win against the Bears is one we will never forget

Nick Foles is set to join the Bears, but Bears fans may not have the fondest memories of the former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback.

Foles signed with Jacksonville last offseason, but is most known for his Super Bowl LII-winning run with the Eagles. Similar to when he filled in for Carson Wentz during that playoff run, a year later he took the defending champion Eagles into Soldier Field in the 2019 playoffs.

In that game, Foles led the Eagles to a field goal on the first drive. Then, the Bears' defense went on lock for the rest of the half.

After a three-and-out on the Eagles' second drive, Foles threw interceptions on two straight possessions. Both picks were in Chicago territory and the second was in the end zone.

With the Eagles trailing, Foles led Philly down the field for a touchdown drive on their first drive of the third quarter. Foles went 5-for-5 on that drive with no completions going for more than 10 yards.

That's what Foles' game was like with the Eagles that year. He completed 72.3% of his passes for 283 yards per game in his five regular season starts.

Foles also had a fourth-quarter go-ahead drive in that game. He was 6-for-9 for 59 yards on what ended up being the game-winning drive and left 56 seconds on the clock.

Bears fans won't want another reminder of what followed, but is still Foles' most recent win as a starting quarterback. He went 0-4 as a starter in Jacksonville, got hurt and never got the job back from Gardner Minshew.
