Despite the 48-30 upset for the Philadelphia Eagles, Nick Foles once again put together a strong performance. Foles threw for 428 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in Sunday's loss to the Minnesota Vikings. He added 41 rushing yards to his day.

Playing from behind for most of the afternoon, Foles had a season-high 48 passing attempts. Foles targeted nine different players on the afternoon, connecting with seven of them at least once. Wide receiver DeSean Jackson saw 16 of Foles' targets, which led the team by a wide margin. Foles was sacked four times in Sunday's loss.

Fantasy impact: Even though he started out the afternoon a little rough, Foles was able to rack up huge passing totals as he tried to keep up with a surprisingly dominant Vikings team. Sunday's game was Foles' sixth consecutive week of putting up strong QB1 numbers. He's a weekly must-start option in all formats. He'll be a QB1 against the Chicago Bears in Week 16.
