Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles feels that as long as he guides his side to more victories in the 2014 he isn't bothered about matching his statistics of the 2013 campaign.

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles has admitted that he may never match the statistical feat he achieved in the 2013 season.

The 25-year-old threw 27 touchdowns to just two interceptions in the campaign, recording one of the best touchdown-to-interception ratios in the history of the NFL.

Foles has admitted that as long as he helps his side to achieve success in the 2014 season, he isn't concerned about his personal statistics.

"Our team isn't measured by my 27-2," Foles told the Philadelphia Inquirer. "Can I be a good-enough leader to where I can make these guys better players around me to where it makes the team better and we win?

"Now, I might not ever reach those [statistics] again. ... I hope I do. I want to get better and I want to be a better player. But if you're just looking primarily at statistics, you might not ever."

Foles started the 2013 season as the Eagles' backup behind Michael Vick before he supplanted the veteran during the season.
