The backup quarterback has always been called the most popular guy in town, but in 2017, Nick Foles proved how truly important the position is in the modern NFL after he filled in for the injured Carson Wentz and led the Eagles to their first Super Bowl championship, winning the MVP in the process.

Foles’ importance was on display again this week, with the backup quarterback suffering a shoulder strain and Las Vegas pulling every single Eagles bet off the board almost immediately. 

The Las Vegas Westgate pulled the Eagles’ Week 1 game against the Falcons (Philly was -3.5) off, took the NFC East odds off the board for all the teams involved and also removed the Eagles’ win total from their mobile site:
