ong> - Nick Foles threw three touchdown passes and ran for a fourth, leading the Philadelphia Eagles to a 31-20 victory over the winless Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday.
With the injured Michael Vick active but not playing, Foles made his seventh career start and beat the Bucs (0-5) for the second time. He was 1-5 as a rookie a year ago, with that victory also coming at Tampa Bay.
But unlike last December, he didn't have to throw a last-second TD pass for the win. He gave the Eagles (3-3) the lead for good with a 47-yard scoring pass to Riley Cooper in the third quarter, then gave his team breathing room with his second TD pass to Jackson.
