Packers lose another QB and fall to Eagles
Green Bay, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Nick Foles threw for 228 yards with three touchdowns and Riley Cooper caught three passes for 102 yards with two scores, as the Philadelphia Eagles dispatched the Green Bay Packers, 27-13, at Lambeau Field.
Green Bay began life without Aaron Rodgers, who is sidelined with a broken collarbone suffered in Monday's loss to Chicago, and also lost Seneca Wallace to a groin injury on Sunday after one series. Scott Tolzien, signed to the active roster from the practice squad just this week, threw a pair of interceptions and finished 24-of-39 for 280 yards with a touchdown in the loss.
Foles connected with Cooper for touchdown passes of 45 and 32 yards in the third quarter, which gave the Eagles breathing room and extended their 10-3 halftime lead.
Philadelphia (5-5) scored on its first three possessions of the second half and kept the ball for the final 9:32 of the game after the Packers turned it over on downs deep in Eagles territory early in the fourth quarter.
Green Bay (5-4) has lost two straight following a four-game winning streak and fell one game behind Detroit for the lead in the NFC North. The Lions beat the Bears on Sunday, 21-19.
