Foles is averaging 298.0 passing yards per game this season, in 4 starts. He's averaging 358.3 yards passing his last three starts...all three games with 70%+ Comp. Pct.
The more Foles gets re-integrated into the offense, the better he'll get -- facing a good pass defense this week, but mostly because you can run all over them...the Eagles should dominate the game on offense and score a bunch of points with Foles going off in a big spot, as he does...
I can't imagine Rodgers is going to play more than a half. I wouldn't be surprised if he played just 2-3 series before checking out. There is absolutely no reason for him to take the field this week...none.
Blake Bortles tends to hit his big FF games when you least expect it...when sentiment is rock bottom on him. He has everything to gain and nothing to lose with him Week 17 performance. Facing a Houston team that has a ton to play for, could be uptight, is missing some defenders/they're banged up -- Bortles tends to run a lot to produce numbers when he's been trashed. We could see Bortles for 50-80+ yards rushing here in a spoiler game that would send a message to Houston and about Bortles as leader of this team for 2019.
...he absolutely should not be their QB in 2019...he never should've been drafted, period. That said...this could be a spot he makes hay led by his feet.
