Foles stars again, Eagles beat Packers 27-13
PHILADELPHIA 27, GREEN BAY 13

By GENARO C. ARMAS
AP Sports Writer

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- A deflected pass that landed in DeSean
Jackson's hands. Two long touchdowns to Riley Cooper, one after
a defensive back slipped to leave the Eagles the receiver wide
open for a score.

Good things happen with Nick Foles at quarterback for the
Eagles.

A week after tying the NFL record by passing for seven TDs,
Foles connected for three long scores and Philadelphia pulled
way for a 27-13 victory Sunday over the injury-ravaged Green Bay
Packers.

"He has great poise," Cooper said. "He's going to sit in the
pocket and kind of dissect the defense."

Foles equaled marks by Peyton Manning, who did it earlier this
season, and Milt Plum (1960) with 16 TD passes without throwing
any interceptions.

Philadelphia's 17-point third quarter handed Green Bay its first
back-to-back home losses since 2008, Aaron Rodgers' first season
as the starter. It was the worst home loss for the Packers since
falling 38-10 to the New York Jets on Dec. 3, 2006.

The Eagles improved to 5-5, with all their victories coming away
from Philly. They won a test of attrition at Lambeau Field on
Sunday.

The undermanned Packers (5-4) played most of the day with
third-string quarterback Scott Tolzien. Rodgers is out with a
left collarbone injury, and backup Seneca Wallace left after the
first series with a groin injury.

Actually, Tolzien played well considering he was just signed off
the practice squad this week. He finished 24 of 39 for 280 yards
with a touchdown and two interceptions.

"We had a lot of tough situations today, no excuses," coach Mike
McCarthy said. "I thought Scott Tolzien played as well as could
be expected."

Foles was better.

He finished 12 for 18 for 228 yards and the three scores - a
55-yarder to Jackson and touchdowns of 45 and 32 yards Cooper.
Foles still hasn't thrown an interception this season, and the
Pro Football Hall of Fame has requested a game-worn jersey and
cleats that Foles wore during his record-tying, seven-TD
performance against Oakland.

It could be tough for Michael Vick to get his starting job back
any time soon. He was inactive a second straight week with a
hamstring injury.

LeSean McCoy finished with 155 yards on 25 carries, the second
straight week that Green Bay's run defense had allowed a
100-yard rusher. McCoy softened the Packers with runs of 9 and
25 yards on the Eagles' first series of the second half before
Foles found Cooper for the 45-yard score and a 17-3 lead.

When safeties creep into the box to stop the run, "you've got to
be able to throw the ball over the top," coach Chip Kelly said.
"We've got some guys in DeSean and Coop that can go over the top
that we believe in."

The strong-armed Foles exposed Green Bay's secondary in the
second half. Cooper was wide open on both of his scores, rolling
over the goal line on his 45-yarder after being untouched on the
ground, then working his way free toward the left sideline after
Morgan Burnett slipped for the 32-yard score to make it 27-10
with 10 seconds left in the third quarter.

Whether it's Lambeau or Oakland Coliseum, the Eagles succeed on
the road (5-1). The only blemish was a 52-20 loss in Denver.
They're still squarely in the race in the mediocre NFC East.

"We're not good at home and we're good on the road. We better
figure it out because we're coming home," Kelly said.

Tolzien, who played college ball at Wisconsin, seemed at ease.
He zipped a 22-yard pass to Brandon Bostick with 3:22 left in
the third quarter to cut the Eagles' lead to 20-10. The Eagles
answered on their next drive with the second of Cooper's two
scoring catches.

Tolzien's biggest mistake came early in the second quarter, when
he marched the Packers from their 18 into the red zone, only to
be intercepted by Brandon Boykin in end zone on an underthrown
ball to Jordy Nelson. At the time, the Eagles were only leading
7-0.

"We had an awesome opportunity there and got a good look with
the play that we were running," Tolzien said. "Looking back on
the throw, I should have thrown more back pylon."

Cooper finished with three catches for 102 yards, while Jackson
had four catches for 80 yards. He caught his 27th career
touchdown of 55 or more yards.
