Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles said he needs to be more accurate after a loss to the 49ers that saw him complete less than 50 percent of his passes.
Foles was 21 of 43 and threw two interceptions and no touchdowns in the loss, which was the Eagles' first of the season. Philadelphia had just 213 yards of total offense, only 22 of which were on the ground.
"Our guys are getting open," Foles said. "I've just got to hit them. It doesn't have to be perfect, but it needs to be where they can go and make a play."
Earlier in the week, Foles said he knows how to fix what went wrong against the 49ers and would spend the week working on it. On the season, he has completed 57.8 percent of his passes for 1,173 yards, six touchdowns and four interceptions.
The 25-year-old is in his third season with the Eagles.
Philadelphia (3-1) hosts the St. Louis Rams (1-2) on Sunday. The Rams' secondary has given up the third-fewest passing yards per game in the NFL through Week 4.
