The Philadelphia Eagles’ 16-15 win over the Chicago Bears on Sunday afternoon gave Nick Foles a nice little bump in his bank account.
Nick Foles will earn $1 million through incentives from the win.
Foles tossed the go-ahead touchdown with less than a minute remaining.
Cody Parkey missed a 43-yard field goal that would have won the game for the Bears.

When the Eagles restructured the quarterback’s contract this offseason, they loaded it with incentives.
Foles earned $500,000 for playing 33 percent of the snaps in a playoff game and another $500,000 for the victory.
Foles is in line for another $500,000 bonus next week assuming he plays 33 percent of snaps against the New Orleans Saints with another half-million on the line should the Eagles pull off another upset.
Eagles’ QB Nick Foles has a $1 million incentive if Philadelphia goes to the postseason AND he plays 33 percent of team’s plays. His bruised ribs that prevented him from finishing today’s game now mean he played 32 percent of Eagles’ plays – 1 percent short of $1 million. Ouch.

A million per win in the playoffs seems like a nice incentive to play your ass off.
