“We knew we were in for a run”

Any hopes of postseason glory for the Eagles hung on the shoulders of quarterback Nick Foles, 29.

And he put in a stunning first-half performance in the divisional round of the playoffs – they were 14-10 up against New Orleans Saints last night.

But the Saints turned it around in Louisiana, eventually winning 20-14.

The star made history last year when he guided the Philadelphia side to their first-ever Super Bowl triumph after winning a shootout with Tom Brady’s New England Patriots.

He was even named Most Valuable Playerin the aftermath of the epic victory.

One fan hoping Foles will lead a winning charge tonight is his wife Tori Moore. 

The pair go back several years, with Tori being the first person Foles saw when transferred to the University of Arizona from Michigan State and, in his own words, was floored by his future wife’s beauty.

He previously said: “I was going to my football physical.

“I remember walking down the stars and thinking, ‘wow, this might be the most gorgeous person I’ve ever seen’.”

Tori played for the Arizona Wildcats and were firm friends at University – only deciding to take things further once they graduated.

Things, unfortunately, took a dramatic turn in 2013 when Tori discovered she suffered from Postular Orthostatic Tachycardia Syndrome – a condition which causes lightheadedness, blurry vision, and physical weakness.

It was during this agonising period that Foles proposed to Tori – although the setting was hardly as romantic as he could have first imagined.

He said: “We got engaged while we were at the Mayo Clinic (a famous US medical centre).

“We got married at a courthouse two months later, because we knew we were in for a run.”

The pair had much better news three years later, however, when they welcomed their first child, Lily James Foles.
