Sun­day’s game

San Francisco Chronicle - Late Edition (Sunday) - - NFL -

Philadel­phia at New Or­leans, 1:40 p.m. /1550 and fin­ished.

Foles re­turned to the start­ing lineup af­ter a back in­jury side­lined Wentz last month and has led the Ea­gles to four straight wins, in­clud­ing a 16-15 come­back vic­tory in Chicago in the wild-card round. Fac­ing the NFL’s stingi­est de­fense, Foles tossed a 2-yard touch­down pass to Golden Tate on fourth down with 56 sec­onds re­main­ing.

But no mat­ter how far Foles can take the Ea­gles, it prob­a­bly won’t change his stand­ing on the team. Wentz is the fran­chise quar­ter­back. He fin­ished third in NFL MVP vot­ing in his sec­ond sea­son as a pro. He re­turned quickly af­ter surgery to re­pair two torn knee lig­a­ments, started 11 games and posted ca­reer highs in com­ple­tion rate (69.6 per­cent) and passer rat­ing (102.2) de­spite bat­tling in­con­sis­tency and in­jury.
