Andy Reid named Nick Foles the starting quarterback two weeks ago regardless of Michael Vick's health, but now that Vick is cleared to play, Reid confirmed he's staying with Foles.

"I'm going to stick with Nick," Reid said.

Foles did not provide an inspiring performance in a 34-13 loss to the Bengals. He threw for 182 yards with one touchdown and one interception. The interception was especially costly and led to a five-turnover barrage. 

"A bad throw,” Foles said. “One I can’t have.”
