Andy Reid Says Eagles Rookie QB Nick Foles Made The Call On Final Play Vs Buccaneers
With the game on the line and two seconds on the clock, it was Nick Foles who decided what play to run, Andy Reid said following the Eagles’ 23-21 victory over the Bucs.
“He wanted that last play,” Reid said. “That’s a play that he wanted. I’m talking about the last play of the game. He called it. He wanted it, and he executed it. He did a great job with it so hats off to him.”
Foles rolled to his right and found Jeremy Maclin near the sideline for the 1-yard touchdown, capping off a 13-play, 64-yard drive.
“He came off and he wanted that play,” Reid said. “It was a play we had in the gameplan in that situation, but that’s the one he liked the best so he was feeling it, and listen, that’s a great thing when your quarterback’s in tune like that. You saw when he came off, he goes ‘Hey I’m feeling this right here.’ And then you saw Marty [Mornhinweg] give him the high-five. That’s what that was all about. He just goes, ‘Hey, that’s an awesome deal.’ That’s a great feeling right there, so I’m proud of the kid.”
