Tampa, FL (SportsNetwork.com) - Nick Foles, filling in for an injured Michael
Vick, threw three touchdown passes and ran for another to lead the
Philadelphia Eagles to a 31-20 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Foles completed 22-of-31 passes for 296 yards for the Eagles (3-3), who have
won two in a row since a three-game skid. Ironically, Foles' only other
victory as a starter came last December at Tampa Bay. The Arizona product, who
improved to 2-5 as a starter, had a quarterback rating of 133.3.
Vick did not play Sunday due to a hamstring injury, which he suffered last
week against the New York Giants. He has played in all 16 games only once in
his career. It happened in 2006, his final year with the Falcons.
DeSean Jackson caught six passes for 64 yards and two touchdowns for the
Eagles, who became the third team in NFL history to rack up 400-plus yards of
total offense over their first six games. The California product recorded two
receiving touchdowns in a game for the first time in his career.
Riley Cooper hauled in four passes for 120 yards and a score for the victors.
LeSean McCoy carried the ball 25 times for 116 yards and caught two passes for
Mike Glennon, making his second career start, connected on 26-of-43 passes for
273 yards, two touchdowns and an interception for the Bucs, who are 0-5 for
the first time since the 2009 season.
