Foles is the first Eagle this season to win a Player of the Week honor.
It's the third time the Eagles QB has earned the distinction since his seven-touchdown game against the Oakland Raiders in 2013.
Foles set a franchise-record on Sunday with 471 yards passing against the Texans and tossed four touchdown passes, leading the Birds to a 32-30 comeback win over Houston.
Coach Doug Pederson announced Monday that Foles will remain under center, though it's no surprise because Carson Wentz hasn't been cleared to return from a back injury that has forced him to miss the last two games.
The defending Super Bowl champs will earn the NFC's second wild-card spot if they beat the Redskins and the Vikings (8-6-1) lose at home to the Bears (11-4).
Wentz will stay on the active roster so there's a chance he could return if the Eagles stay alive. It would be tough to bench Foles, however, if he continues to play at a high level.
"He's just an unbelievable player and an unbelievable person," tight end Zach Ertz said. "His demeanor is so calm and he's a really good player."
The Eagles are 8-2 with Foles the past two seasons, including the playoffs and a loss to Dallas in a meaningless game in Week 17 in which the starters only played one quarter.
Going back to Foles' first stint in Philadelphia, he's 22-7 as a starter for the Eagles since going 1-5 his rookie year in 2012 on a 4-12 team that cost Andy Reid his job as coach.
