Foles hooked up with Zach Ertz for a 6-yard touchdown strike. He worked four series with the first-team offense and completed 8 of 10 pass attempts for 81 yards, with one touchdown and no interceptions. Through two games, Foles has passed for 125 yards.
"Certainly the first [interception] was on a third-and-long and he tried to force it in there and make a play, which typically he won't do," Shurmur said. "So he's just trying to see what he can get away with, and then the keeper on the second down, as we were getting into the red area, that's just the throw. They did a good job of covering it. He's done it in the past. He's just got to pull it down and get what he can with it and then we play third down. That had nothing to do with what he's been working on.
"Nick's training well. Nick's doing some good things. Fortunately, if you make some mistakes in the preseason, it doesn't hurt you, and he certainly learns from every rep he gets."
His first drive included a pass that was almost an interception before an interception by Ryan Mundy. Foles worked three series with the first-team offense and was picked off by Sherrick McManis on his final drive of the night. He completed 6 of 9 pass attempts for 44 yards, with no touchdowns and a pair of interceptions. He will look to work out the kinks on Friday at New England.
