Nick Foles '100% confident' in Eagles after Carson Wentz injury

PHILADELPHIA (WPVI) -- Nick Foles, who once again finds himself as the starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles, said on Tuesday he is 100% confident in himself and the team.

Foles took over leadership of the offense on Sunday after Carson Wentz left the game with what was later revealed to be a season-ending ACL injury.

Saying he plans to keep the team "rolling," Foles also said Wentz will be instrumental in helping the Eagles win behind the scenes.

He predicts Wentz will come back 'stronger than ever.'

Foles led the team to the playoffs in 2013.

Foles addressed the doubters who that think this team's Super Bowl dreams died when Wentz went down.

"That's just part of this game, it's part of what people are going to say. I'm fully confident in my team, I'm fully confident in myself. What I'm focusing on is today and focusing on this one game," Wentz said. "I've played for the league, I've played for the Eagles before.

Meanwhile, head coach Doug Pederson was the quarterbacks coach for the Eagles when they drafted Foles.
