"Nick's a tough guy. He's our leader, and that showed how tough Nick is," said rookie receiver Jordan Matthews.
Foles finally was helped to his sideline — he did not miss a play — as referee Tony Corrente ordered both teams to their benches.
The game already had gotten nasty with a slew of penalties and injuries. Washington had 10 penalties for 131 yards, Philadelphia nine for 70.
"I saw our guy had an interception, and I went to do what we are taught to do,Cheap NFL Jerseys China
, and that's to go get a block," Baker said. "I didn't look to see if it was a quarterback or not. All I saw was someone going to pursue the ball, and I got my head in front, and I leveled my shoulder, which is a legal football hit, what I've been taught to do.
The Eagles went on to win 37-34.
Baker claimed he did nothing wrong, while the Eagles called it a "cheap shot."

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A brawl broke out after Washington's Chris Baker laid out Philadelphia quarterback Nick Foles on an apparent interception in the fourth quarter Sunday.
Baker and Eagles left tackle Jason Peters were ejected.
"I thought (Breeland) was down, so that's why I wasn't looking for anyone," Foles said. "The next thing I know,Cheap Jerseys
, I'm just obliterated."
"The whistle had not been blown. He was going towards the ball; the ball carrier was still running,NFL Jerseys Outlet
, and he could make a tackle. I didn't even really hit him hard. I just hit him with my shoulder and he happened to fall. He's a quarterback, so I guess that was the reason for the ejection."
Foles then praised his teammates for "having my back in that situation when a guy does a dirty play." The quarterback said he was hit in the ribs.
Added running back LeSean McCoy: "If you see your quarterback get hit in a dirty way — it was obviously dirty — that kind of charged us up a bit."
Peters' ejection came after he threw a punch at Baker.
"That wasn't scripted or planned. The guy just cheap-shotted Nick Foles and I reacted," Peters said. "I shouldn't have done what I did,Cheap China Jerseys
, but I was just trying to protect by quarterback."
