Cory Parkey converted a 36-yard field goal as time expired to give the Philadelphia Eagles a come-from-behind victory for the second straight week in a 30-27 win over the Indianapolis Colts.
The Eagles rallied from a 17-0 deficit against the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 1 and again rallied from a double-digit second half deficit to sing the Colts Monday night. The Eagles move to 2-0 with the victory while the Colts fall to 0-2.
With the Colts leading 27-20 and deep in Eagles territory in search of a score to put the game away, Malcolm Jenkins intercepted Andrew Luck to give Philadelphia renewed life. However, the manner in which the interception occurred was questionable. Brandon Boykin appeared to hold T.Y. Hilton and Hilton fell down on the play. The pass was then easily snagged by Jenkins to give the Eagles possession.
The Eagles then overcame a bad horse-collar tackle call by the officials with a 51-yard screen pass to Darren Sproles to advance to the Indianapolis 6-yard line. After a timeout, Nick Foles hit Jeremy Maclin for a touchdown to tie the game at 27-all with 3:25 left to play.
Foles finished 21 of 37 for 331 yards with a touchdown and an interception.
The Colts went three-and-out on their ensuing possession and punted back to Philadelphia.
Sproles’ career-high 152 receiving yards led the Eagles. He also scored on a 19-yard touchdown run..
A 2-yard touchdown pass from Luck to Jack Doyle gave the Colts a 17-6 lead at halftime.
After an Adam Vinatieri field goal extended the lead to 20-6, the Eagles began to rally. A pass interference call on Vontae Davis set up a 1-yard touchdown run by LeSean McCoy to pull within a score.
Sproles’ touchdown tied the game at 20-all late in the third quarter.
Ahmad Bradshaw scored on a 7-yard touchdown pass from Luck to again give the Colts the lead. Indianapolis had moved to the edge of the Eagles red zone before Luck’s interception gave the Eagles their chance to rally late.
Trent Richardson had his best performance in a Colts uniform since being acquired via trade last year. Richardson carried 21 times for 79 yards for Indianapolis, surpassing his previous team high of 64 yards from last December. However, he did fumble twice as well.
Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks left the game with a calf injury and did not return.
