Nick Foles is expected to start Week 1 for the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles, according to NFL.com.

The Eagles open the season on Thursday night against the Atlanta Falcons.

Coach Doug Pederson has not made it official, but sources around the team have indicated that Foles will get the start over Carson Wentz, who tore his ACL and LCL in Week 14 last season.

Foles led the Eagles to a 15-10 first-round playoff win over the Falcons last season. Foles completed 23 of 30 for 246 yards with no turnovers as the Eagles kicked off their run to the title.
