Gridiron Heights, Season 2, Ep. 19: Eagles Need Nick Foles to Go Full 'Rocky'

Andrew Gould@AndrewGould4Featured ColumnistJanuary 9, 2018

The Philadelphia Eagles' storybook season took a sour turn when Carson Wentz tore his ACL in December. For the franchise to win its first Super Bowl, Nick Foles must become the city's biggest folk hero since Rocky Balboa.

Before facing the Atlanta Falcons on Saturday, the Eagles whipped their replacement quarterback into shape with an old-fashion training montage. While they spared him the raw eggs, Foles still needed to chase an animal and climb the "Rocky stairs" like Philadelphia's beloved fictional boxer.

Find out if Foles has the heart of a champion in Bleacher Report's latest installment of Gridiron Heights.
