Last Sunday night in Dallas

Last Sunday night in Dallas, NBC color analyst Cris Collinsworth continuously railed on Nick Foles for not keeping his eyes down the field at the first hint of pressure. His analysis was contrary to Foles' reputation as a QB who will continue to look down the field for open receivers despite a heavy oncoming rush. It's one of the reasons Andy Reid's regime drafted him, and one of the reasons he has had so much success this season.
In the second quarter against Dallas, Collinsworth first mentioned what he perceived as a major flaw in Foles' game. "When Nick Foles is having to hold the ball," explained Collinsworth, "you can see it, the more tape you watch on Nick Foles, where it's not there right away and he starts to run, he tends to drop those eyes and lose focus down the field, and sacks come."
After a wild Eagles victory Sunday night, it is understandable if you're a little burned out on football right now, but for those of who are diehards, today presents. more football! There are three games on the college bowl schedule today, and a bunch of interesting prospects will be on display.
Obviously, the Eagles' season is in high gear right now, as the Birds are headed for their first playoff game since 2010. But for those of you taking in some college football today, here are some players to watch.

Jeremiah Attaochu, OLB, Georgia Tech (6'3, 242): Attaochu is a player I will have a very close eye on at the Senior Bowl. Impressions of him are all over the map. Here's an extensive review of his game (they like him less than I do, but it's very well done). The Eagles will be in the market for edge rushers, and Attaochu is very athletic one, but he'll probably take a few years to develop.
Anyone who has watched the Eagles over the last two years can easily tell that their offense was improved under the leadership of Chip Kelly. With the regular season now in the books, let's take a look at the actual statistical production, comparing 2012 to 2013. The numbers speak for themselves.
That is across the board improvements, and in many areas, drastic improvements. To put the above numbers in http://www.hockeyblackhawksshop.com/marian_hossa_jersey.html context, here is where the Eagles ranked among the rest of the NFL statistically in 2012 and 2013.
The Eagles are the 2013 NFC East Champions, and the focus will now shift to the New Orleans Saints. But before we start to look ahead to Drew Brees and Company, let's hand out some hardware.
The Slow Clap of Appreciation Award: Nick Foles
OK, so Nick didn't have his best game by any stretch, but let's just take a Patrick Kane Authentic Jersey moment to recognize the season he had.
Foles finished with a goo.gl/4FeUzB passer rating of 119.1, which was the best passer rating in the NFL this season. It was also the 3rd best passer rating in the history of the NFL. According to the Eagles, Foles is the only player in NFL history to throw more than 20 TDs (he had 27) and 2 or fewer INTs. He also had the best TD:INT ratio (13.5 to 1). That is crazy for a guy who is only 24 and still learning the position.
The Rushing Champion Award: LeSean McCoyUnless LeSean McCoy runs for 138 yards Sunday night in Dallas, he will be the 2013 NFL rushing champion. Heading into the day, McCoy had a 189 yard lead on the Chiefs' Jamaal Charles and a 210 yard lead on the Vikings' Adrian Peterson. Charles and Peterson both sat out their games today.
The next closest player was the Bears' Matt Forte, who trailed McCoy by 247 yards. He ran for 110 yards today, finishing the regular season with 1339. Here is how the Top 5 rounds out, with McCoy having one game left to play:
