Asked if Foles choked under pressure in the 17-3 loss to the Cowboys, Kelly replied "Nah, I don't think it had anything ...

feeling but I haven’t spoken to him about it,” Kelly said. “But I don’t think, Nick
never struck me as a guy that the moment kind of catches him. Came off the
bench against the Giants … and led us on a drive right at the end of 2 minutes
to get a field goal in a critical situation. And when I saw him play in
college, I don’t think any time in college I’ve ever seen Nick get overwhelmed
by the moment or whatnot.”
“haven’t spoken to him about it” are thought-provoking even if Foles wasn’t
able to carry on a basic conversation due to the head injury.
