The 2021-22 NFL season is soon drawing to a close, and former Wildcat Nick Foles will be getting the start in Week 16 for the Chicago Bears.
Late season starts and Nick Foles are becoming more and more synonymous these days, and as we enter week 16 of the 2021-22 NFL Season, the former Wildcat will once again be getting the last season start.
Making news via social media just days ago, Chicago head coach Matt Nagy announced that Foles will be making the start for the Bears on Sunday afternoon against the Seattle Seahawks.
For those that have been following the NFL action this season, a few Wildcats have been making impacts with their respective teams this season, but unfortunately for Nick, he has had to wait his turn.
Joining the Bears before last season, the former NFL Super Bowl MVP has been running third all year, patiently waiting behind Andy Dalton and rookie quarterback Justin Fields. However, weeks after sitting on the bench, Nick will finally get his opportunity.
Preparing to make his 56th start, eighth with the Bears, Nick Foles is looking to help guide the Bears to victory against a struggling Seattle team.
Coming into this game, the Bears are 4-10 and losers of three straight games, and boiled into their problems, has been the inconsistent play at quarterback and on offense. Through 14 games, Dalton and Fields have combined for 2,887 yards passing with 13 touchdowns to just 16 interceptions.
However, with Fields being hampered by nagging injuries, and Dalton being on the NFL’s COVID-19 reserve list, naturally, Nick will make the start for the Bears as he looks to guide them to a strong finish on the season.
Unfortunately for Foles, his last start was against Minnesota back in November of 2020. Nick finished the season with 1,852 yards with 10 touchdowns to just eight interceptions.
