On the other hand, Nick Foles isn't the type of player who is going to have a field day against the Patriots. Especially not with a decent amount of tape and two weeks to prepare. When it comes to where he wants to throw the ball, Foles' favorite place to go is the right sideline. While he was successful at it early in his career, the right sideline hasn't been too friendly in recent years. Nevertheless, Foles still goes there twice as often as any other location. Early on he was also pretty successful throwing up the middle, this season he's only completed 44% of those passes.
FIELD POSITION- As always, the Patriots dominate field position. Yes, they may make some strange in game decisions with the sole purpose of flipping the field that leave us scratching our heads for a moment or two, but two minutes later we are once again praising Belichick and wondering how we could have ever allowed ourselves to doubt him. Today field position will play a big part. In addition to giving Brady a short field, our special teams unit will be putting Nick Foles on his own side of the field. Although his sample size from back there isn't very large, it is telling. Foles' completion percentage from inside his own 20 is 37.5%. Inside his own 21-50 it's just 51.2%.
