Nick Foles didn't toss seven touchdown passes for the Philadelphia Eagles this week, but with the Green Bay Packers down to their third-string quarterback, he didn't need to. The Birds sank a limited Pack squad 27-13 at Lambeau Field, an outcome that could have a dramatic impact in the postseason race.
It wasn't a record-setting performance, but Foles tossed three more touchdowns to bring his season total to 16 with zero interceptions. Another solid performance likely cements the second-year passer as the Eagles' permanent starting quarterback at least for the short-run, even if he still hasn't gone head-to-head with the NFL's best.
The Packers knew they were in trouble when Aaron Rodgers suffered a broken collarbone last week, and the situation worsened when backup Seneca Wallace suffered a groin injury on their first series. Scott Tolzien did what he could to keep the team afloat in his first NFL action under center, but heaved two costly interceptions.
Philadelphia improves to 5-5, while Green Bay drops to 5-4. With the Eagles suddenly emerging in the wild card standings, it could prove to be a huge loss for the Packers who are without their MVP quarterback indefinitely. Scroll down for more highlights and analysis from a big Eagles win.
