Eagles move to 5-5 with 27-13 win over Rodgers-less Packers

Nick Foles AP

The Packers can’t wait for their starting quarterback to get back in the lineup, but there’s probably no such pressure for Michael Vick to make his way back to the lineup in Philadelphia.

Nick Foles threw three more touchdown passes without an interception on Sunday, running his total to 16 scores and no picks on the season, and the Eagles improved to 5-5 with a 27-13 win in Green Bay. If the Cowboys lose to the Saints on Sunday night, the Eagles will be tied for first place in the division and that’s something that seemed hard to fathom while they were scoring just 10 points combined in losses to the Cowboys and Giants last month.

Foles wasn’t perfect on Sunday, he fumbled once and underthrew a pass that the Packers wound up deflecting to DeSean Jackson for a touchdown, but he avoided the kinds of catastrophic mistakes than crushed the team in those two losses and made a big play with his feet as well to set up one of the scores. With LeSean McCoy churning up yards, that’s enough to keep the Eagles offense moving and the remaining six games on their schedule aren’t so daunting that more of the same seems impossible the rest of the way.

The Packers aren’t sitting quite so pretty in the division as they’re now looking up at the Lions in the NFC North. Scott Tolzien wound up 24-of-39 for 280 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions in his first NFL action. It was pretty good for a guy with no first team experience and would have looked better if Jordy Nelson was ruled to have held onto a ball in the end zone in the fourth quarter or if Mason Crosby hit a couple more field goals, but it wasn’t enough to overcome what the defense gave up to Foles and McCoy.

Things got even worse on the injury front, too. Center Evan Dietrich-Smith and tackle Don Barclay (who moved to guard after Dietrich-Smith was hurt) both left the game with injuries and did not return. Tolzien likely did enough to get another start next week at the Giants, but that defense will need to do more to help him than they did this week.

    There, I started the what the typical Packers hater will be writing on this thread.

    Eagles probably gonna win the NFC East. Giants are in too deep a hole still in and you can bet the house on Romo and the Boys blowing it in late December.

    Sorry, the Eagles are not that good, they got an incredible gift today with Rodgers not playing. GB would have beat them handily.

    What the Packer haters are thinking “YESSS!!!! Green Bay is not as good as my team now that they have half their guys watching from the side lines. My team is better than GB now… woohooo..”.. LOL

    Pretty sad to be a fan of a team when you are so desperate for bad news out of GB in order to give your team an advantage. Personally, I’ll take my teams best against any other teams best and see what team is better. To hope GB loses key guys in order for your team to somehow be better.. that is just a sign that you know your team is weak. Think about it.

  6. Youknowimright says: Nov 10, 2013 4:44 PM

    Foles is average at best. His long balls look like punts. Nice win over the scott tolzien lead pack. With rodgers that’s a 21 point loss. Don’t do this to yourself philly. This is not a good team. These wins are costing you a real qb.

    The Packers are done; these injuries are ridiculous. And the defense can’t intercept a pass to save their life. They’ll be 8-8 and miss the playoffs.

    Time to start rooting for the Lions (as distasteful as that may be). And also the Seahawks & Saints, to stop the Bears from getting a first round bye if they happen to win this division.

    This whole season is revolting. I’m gonna go vomit now.

  9. shlort says: Nov 10, 2013 4:45 PM

    Second loss in row for the Packers against a backup QB.

    They’ll whine that they didn’t have their normal starting QB Rodgers. But the Bears and Eagles were also playing a backup QB.

    Tolzien actually looked better than Wallace

  16. koenig61 says: Nov 10, 2013 4:52 PM

    So every time a team wins, will the headline be because the other teams starting QB is out? Or how about when the bears won without cutler should the headline be, despite losing starting QB the bears win? Putting the fact in the headline that Rodgers didn’t play, is kind of demeaning to the eagles. The game isn’t handed to any team, starters miss lots of games, and yes that includes starting QBs. Give the eagle credit for winning.

    Yes, average QBs generally start a season with 16 TDs and 0 INTs. You see that all the time. In fact, I think Blaine Gabbert did that once.

    Say what you want about Foles….But he has a 120.4 QB rating as a starter this season…..1 full point above Manning…..Not saying he is a “Manning” but the kid is looking to be legit!

  22. gtodriver says: Nov 10, 2013 4:59 PM

    @shlort

    My previous post was aimed at fans like you that refuse to accept the fact that your squad was beaten (very soundly btw) by a team that also has a lot of players missing due to injury.

    Ted failed to provide your squad enough depth to beat the Bears and Eagles backups.

  23. therealsmiley says: Nov 10, 2013 5:00 PM

    Philly should take the east….unless Cowboys can get hot. I know my Skins are waaaaay off. Hail!!

  24. Wisconsin77 says: Nov 10, 2013 5:00 PM

    Yeah, those two guys are much better than Flynn. Ted “Timid” Thompson and Mike McLardy have are too stubborn to pick up Matt Flynn or maybe take a flyer at Favre. All the Packers needed to do was go .500 until Rodgers gets back to get in the playoffs. Now if looks like they may not win a game.

  25. usdcoyotesfan says: Nov 10, 2013 5:00 PM

    Congrats, Philly. You beat our 3rd string quarterback. With the refs’ help. You must be so proud.

  26. deltaoracle says: Nov 10, 2013 5:01 PM

    Congrats to Philly for the win. They are at least mediocre, which looks pretty good as the Packers spiral down.
    It was obvious from his first pass that Tolzien would probably be intercepted multiple times, but he wasn’t the biggest problem. Trying to have a running attack with Marshall Newhouse at OT and a free agent OG and a regular OG at C just doesn’t work and led to “3 yds. and a cloud of powdered sugar.”
    The defense only appeared to be interested on about six plays. With Rodgers out they needed to step up and instead stepped back. Awful.
    This was one the Pack had to win if they wanted to be in contention when Rodgers got back. Now Flynn will be back, but it doesn’t really matter. Wait ’til next year I guess.

  27. thesmartest1 says: Nov 10, 2013 5:01 PM

    Best thing for the Eagles is they may not have to draft a QB early and can go D/OL early.

  28. conormacleod says: Nov 10, 2013 5:01 PM

    Now, even the Packer fans can’t deny that their only good player was Rodgers. Horrible defense. Horrible running game without their QB. They are done for the year. Their fans should just pack it in and wait til next year. Of course, they won’t. Because it’s an awfully long, cold winter at the unemployment office when your Packers aren’t winning.

  29. skinsfan91 says: Nov 10, 2013 5:04 PM

    The bears back up qb is good. Eagles and Giants are both getting a gift playing a Rodgers-less packers.

  31. phillyphannnn83 says: Nov 10, 2013 5:06 PM

    Yup, 16 TDs and 0 picks but he’s mediocre. I swear some of you have a zero IQ.

  32. tecmostar says: Nov 10, 2013 5:10 PM

    Yep, Nick Foles is still average. Could have had at least four picks if the Packers secondary didn’t suck. He’s not bad but it’s not time to anoint him “the next one”.

  33. universalchurchoftruth says: Nov 10, 2013 5:11 PM

    To me the ultimate mark of a hapless franchise is going at least 10 years in a row without having a winning record. Think about it. Losing year after year while consistently drafting at the top of the draft is a very difficult thing to do. Organizations that achieve this feat are truly clueless. For reference the last time this occurred was the Matt Millen Detroit Lions. In fact being this bad is really so bad it is a rare achievement. It is so rare that only 5 organizations throughout the entire history of the NFL have ineptly gone 10+ years in a row without having a winning record. Out of these 5 different organizations 1 has dubiously achieved this feat twice. Anyone care to guess which franchise has awfully stumbled at least 10+ years in a row 2 times? Ladies and Gentlemen I give you your Green Bay Packers. Be proud cheeseheads!

  34. conormacleod says: Nov 10, 2013 5:15 PM

    Hey GB! You played a backup QB and got smoked! Your team isn’t good. That’s called reality. You can insult anybody else, but your team will still be lousy. Btw: we don’t hate your team. We hate the Packer fans.

  35. conormacleod says: Nov 10, 2013 5:17 PM

    Packer fans are calling Foles a bad QB?! So, now you have to go home and tell your momma you just got your butts kicked by a bad QB. That must hurt. I’m sure the alcohol will ease the emotional scars this week, and next. And every week until Rodgers returns.

  36. contra74isloosbuthole says: Nov 10, 2013 5:18 PM

    Wow. Bears and Vikings fans are super jealous. Yes the Bears were playing with their backup as well but there is a much bigger step between Rodgers and whoever than Cutler and McKown(sp?). Packers don’t need to worry. Even if the lose the next two games Rodgers will be back and win out easy enough.

  37. mp4pack says: Nov 10, 2013 5:21 PM

    Tolzien has some raw material to work with, for sure, and is a sure upgrade over Wallace. I think the guy sitting in Hattiesburg might represent the best of what’s left of hope for winning enough of the next 4-6 games to make the playoffs, though I’m certainly not holding my breath on that happening. Maybe next year.

  38. drwinglove says: Nov 10, 2013 5:22 PM

    As a birds fan, I realize Foles caught a few breaks today. However. . . . It is tough to argue with 3 TDs, 200+ yrds, and no picks. For the first time in two years, things are getting interesting. Thank jeebus.

    And Kuhn will be the backup????

    Don’t get your panties in a wad. He s average regardless of his int to td ratio. You can still where his jersey that you bought last week when he is holding a clip board in two yrs. Product of a fortunate schedule. Which is fine. You cannot control that. But he has played 1 decent team dallas and he was brutal. Stay tuned but next good team he plays he loses to. And you know I’m always right.

  45. stellarperformance says: Nov 10, 2013 5:27 PM

    Packers without Rogers is like having a bye week. To all you Packer fans complaining about having a few starters out, take a look at what the Vikings did Thursday on 4 days rest. They dressed 44, not 53 because of injuries. Both starting safeties are out and starting right corner. Both Nose tackles were out, RT, LG both out. Starting TE (Rudolph) out. And even starting a below normal NFL QB they pulled out a win.

    No excuses Packer fans. Your team stinks without Rogers, everyone knows it, get off your high horse and be happy for the ridiculous luck you have had having Favre and Rogers at QB.

  56. officialgame says: Nov 10, 2013 5:58 PM

    I just want to know where all the geniuses are who said Chip Kelly’s offense wouldn’t work or it was some sort of gimmick. Not only does it work but it should get better over time as Chip learns the league and upgrades the roster with more of his type of players. NFL defensive coordinators are to smart to be fooled by gimmicks. Kelly’s principles are sound and the Eagles look well coached. They are not a top tier team like Denver, Seattle or SF but moving in the right direction.

  57. Great Caesar's Ghost says: Nov 10, 2013 5:58 PM

    Go Eagles! Vick will be brought back once healthy. He’s our best shot at a SB. Foles is average but he’s played well against poor teams.

  58. 1rockyracoon says: Nov 10, 2013 5:59 PM

    Green Bay’s defense was embarrassed at the end of the game. 9 1/2 minutes to go in the game and the defense rolled over. They knew the Eagles were going to run the ball and still the Packers couldn’t do anything about it. GB is in trouble because of Rodger’s injury and because their defense is weak.

    1) illegal touching on the punt – then eagles get the ball at the 16 instead of the 20

    2) Jordy Nelson non-catch – after getting a gift in the overturned Foles fumble, McCarthy and the boys cry that they don’t get another

    In both cases, the whole stadium was booing. I was embarrassed at their lack of knowledge. Shame on you Pack

  68. rkt4mayor says: Nov 10, 2013 6:32 PM

    Nick Foles is an amazing young QB.
    I have no hesitation declaring him the Eagles franchise QB.
    When Peyton Manning had 16 TDs and 0 picks the mefia raved about it.
    Nick Foles has that and the media notes it but doesn’t rave.
    The few Eagles fans who have yet to embrace Foles seem to have a non-football agenda on their minds.
    The rest of us know Foles is the franchise QB we’ve been waiting for.

    The Packers can beat the Queens with Tolzein.

Book it. all of these haters are lame losers with no life. They will get Randall Cobb back in December . The only guy the will be missing is Finley. If they had Finley and Cobb today they would have beaten the Eagles with a 3rd string QB . anybody with half a brain knows that. once the get into the playoffs they will have momentum and Rodgers will play like a man possessed . He’ll be on FIRE and so will the Packers ! WATCH OUT HATERS ! LMAO .

    All the gloom and doomers, please stop–especially those of you invoking the name of the-quarterback-who-must-not-be-named as the savior of the franchise.

    Tolzein came in with little-to-no preparation and albeit throwing a bit wildly–Jordy and co. had to climb a few ladders to bring some of those passes in–gave us a fighting chance.

    We did ourselves no favors leaving 27 points (2 missed FGs, end-zone INT, JJ’s step out of bounds, and Nelson’s non-catch) on the field.

    Give Tolzein a fair shot with a week of preparation before you proclaim the sky is falling.

    Keep on cheering Packer-haters. Hopefully, the Packers can weather the storm and slip into the playoffs as a healthy wild card. Id like their chances.

    We all know if week 17 matters, the Bears will get their butts kicked on a cold weather day at Soldier Field. If the Bears clinch the division before that, they will undoubtedly “rest their starters” because losing at home 42 – 17 to a non playoff team would not be the way theyd want to finish the regular season.

    My previous post was aimed at fans like you that refuse to accept the fact that your squad was beaten (very soundly btw) by a team that also has a lot of players missing due to injury.

    Ted failed to provide your squad enough depth to beat the Bears and Eagles backups.
    _______________________________

    Whatever makes you sleep at night.

    I know that you know that what your wrote is nothing more than a lame attempt at trying to justify how you feel about whatever team you cheer for on game day.

    Half of GBs team is watching from the sidelines in street clothes and a few other guys are playing with an injury. Hardly a fair comparison saying that the other teams had back-up QBs in.

    I’ll give you that the bears had their back-up in. Philly has Foles in there, and I think Foles is way better than Vick. Foles belongs in there.

    Here is something else. GB has had 2 consecutive weeks where the QB that prepared for the game ended up not playing past the fisrt series.

    Generalize it all you like. The fact remains that you cannot make a comparison like you did if you look at the situation without hating GB. Reality is different than what you believe to be true. In the end, your opinion matters not.

  89. onegamedoesnotaseasonmake says: Nov 10, 2013 7:29 PM

    McCarthy put GB in a bad position early on….don’t attempt the 53 FG…..gave Philly great field position…after Foles had a huge game last week…..2-3 plays later Philly is up 7-0 and now GB has to play catch-up with their second, no, third-string QB….should’ve played the field position game…too risky a kick with Crosby at that distance

  90. usdcoyotesfan says: Nov 10, 2013 7:30 PM

    Congrats, Philly. You beat our 3rd string quarterback. With the refs’ help. You must be so proud.

    wait wait wait… so u guys lost back to bac weeks against backups and now u are complaining about your backup… o and the refs… jarret boykins catch.. clearly out of bounds.. the roughing call on goode.. would make tom brady blush…
    ————————————————————–
    1. The Eagles got away with obvious PI several times.
    2. There was inconsistency in how a pass that hit the ground was ruled a catch/no catch. Both calls favored PHI and resulted in a 14 point swing.
    3. The Packers got a couple bad spots that stopped drives.

    Take away all the bad calls and the Pack wins 23-20.

    I didn’t see the game but there is such a thing as a break. When a team’s HOF quarterback is out, they’re not going to be as effective. Foles played well, but there’s no telling that maybe Aaron Rodgers could’ve went for 4 TD’s. Are you saying a team wouldn’t get a break if Foles was hurt and your QB was Barkley?

  94. dcviking says: Nov 10, 2013 7:36 PM

    Much as I hate to admit it, all the Packers need to do is make the playoffs and have Rodgers healthy.

    I have NO idea what game you watched, but it clearly wasn’t the Philly v. Green Bay game.

    I’ll spot you #1, because the Eagles did get away with a couple PI’s (but then again so did Green Bay), but the Packers were the beneficiaries of some BRUTAL calls. That Foles “fumble” was so clearly not a fumble everyone but the blind ref who went under the hood knew it. The announcers were near stunned into silence when they awarded the ball to Green Bay.

    The best part was even having gotten the ball at the 10 yard line in an absolute GIFT from the refs the losers still couldn’t score a touchdown.

    Not to mention the 33+ yard pass play that (again) everyone but the refs saw was out of bounds.

    PUH-leeeze trying to claim that Green Bay got the short end of the calls … that game was 40-0 without the Three Blind Mice in the zebra costumes!

  96. blackandorangeforlife says: Nov 10, 2013 7:39 PM

    Whats with all the Mediocre or Back-up comments about Foles?….Never mind i forgot all back ups and mediocre QB’s get 16 TD’s before throwing their 1st pick and retain a 120.4 QB rating in 5 starts.. Only QB ever to throw 7 td’s in a game and end with a 158.3 rating….I’m sorry who is your starter again?

    ______________________________

    Jackson and Cooper are about the best Philly has. They are playmakers and swing games. Philly should be 7-3 right now.

    Foles should have been the starter since week one. Why The Eagles coaching staff has wasted so much time thinking Vick is the guy.. well, I don’t know why that is at all. Foles is better right now than Vick has ever been in his entire career. Check the stats.

    Oh, and it matters if your QB is out if his name is Brady, Brees, P. Manning, Rodgers, Stafford, Cutler, Luck, Wilson, Ryan (up til this year) Kaepernick or Newton. Other than those guys (and lets face it, Foles is a starting caliber guy), there aren’t really any guys starting on any other team that wouldn’t be back-up if those teams had a QB decent enough to start and win. So, the guy with the reps is the guy you want in there.

    While we are talking depth, it helps if your back-up guy from last week doesn’t have to get replaced by the back-up guy for this week. You know, the preperation and reps that go along with being the starter for the week.

  98. johngaltwho says: Nov 10, 2013 7:54 PM

    The refs were terrible but that had nothing to do with the outcome. packers were gifted a fumble, the eagles, that one cornerback, grabbed hands every play and seemed to have no idea that he was supposed to even pretend that he was looking for the ball.

    Packers lost not because of Tolzien, they lost because they played defense badly and gifted two touchdown receptions on balls that were poorly thrown into double coverage. They should also sit Matthews, his two handed backups are better than he is under the circumstances.

    Hope Jolly and Dietrich-Smith are ok. They are gonna need em.

    As an Eagles fan I’ll reserve judgement until next week….they still need to win a home game. But they are definitely a team on the rise. Their offense is far from a gimmick offense, they run the ball well and can strike from anywhere on the field. the D is much improved too. If they can go into the bye 6-5 i give them pretty good odds of winning the division.

  104. packerbacker12 says: Nov 10, 2013 8:49 PM

    “That Foles “fumble” was so clearly not a fumble everyone but the blind ref who went under the hood knew it. The announcers were near stunned into silence when they awarded the ball to Green Bay.”

    So clearly not a fumble? It was a close call. Also, that 33 yard pass play was a close call as well. Maybe next time you shouldn’t call other people out for not watching the game because based on what you said, neither did you. You claimed both of those calls were ‘clear’ but like I said both were extremely close and could of gone either way.

  105. steves11 says: Nov 10, 2013 8:52 PM

    I don’t think any rational person is confusing the Eagles with a Super Bowl contender, and there’s no doubt that Rodgers getting hurt and missing the game was a gift of grand proportions, but hey….a win is a win. Like Andy Reid used to say (and probably still does)….”Any win in the NFL is a good win”. So the Eagles and their fans will take it. The Eagles are an 8-8 team, who could also go 9-7 or 7-9, depending on the breaks….but whatever it ends up being, its still an improvement over last year. We’ll see what Chip can do with another offseason to shore up the weaknesses.

  106. myawornicky says: Nov 10, 2013 8:54 PM

    You’ve gat to be kidding about the refs helping the eagles. That was one of the worst refing I’ve seen in awhile. Not only did they give the packers a deep pass when the guy only got one foot in, but they missed not 1, but 2 huge face mask calls on McCoy, one looked like it nearly snapped his neck. And if you’re referring to Nelson’s dropped pass in the end zone, the ball touched the ground and you know it. So try again

  108. skinsfan91 says: Nov 10, 2013 9:41 PM

    Packers are third in the league in scoring with 29 points a game. I guess the fact they only scored 13 today has nothing to do with Rogers being out and has everything to do with the mighty Philadelphia offense. At least according to Eagles fans.

  109. skinsfan91 says: Nov 10, 2013 9:46 PM

Even if he’s not good, you still prefer a black qb and will do whatever it takes to run Foles out of town because of his skin tone

  111. fearadmiral says: Nov 10, 2013 9:52 PM

    I think more than anything that this shows how important a great QB is to a team. Without one it is impossible to win over time. Without Rodgers I honestly don’t know if the Packers are better than the Vikings and that’s saying something.

    duece5 says:

    probably the most sane thing i have heard since rodgers’ injury.

    The reality is that Rodger’s covers up ALOT of issues gbay has. the top flight qbs have that power. It is impossible to replace, but gbay has been vulnerable in many areas.

    The packers D is overall is pretty shaky. Crosby is shaky, and when your QB starts his 1st game, what do you expect?

    i know I read many posts saying….”if we just win 1/2 our games….” Not being rude here, but it isn’t realistic. TT messed up, and did not plan to for this scenario, he also has a patched up oline. WAY too many issues that affect the most important position in the NFL –THE QB. It is why he SHOULZD be given a high dose of: C’mon Man!!

    The Vikings are better than gbay without Rodgers, and that will come to light. IT is impossible for Tolzien to just come in and beat an NFL team, unless he is the re-birth of Kurt Warner.

    As Vikings fans, we KNOW Ponder is not the future. We also know that he can play well…..he is the ultimate tease. But Tolzien has a future, but he need 1-2 years till he feels comfortable back there…..that is reality.

    The packers are lost and just not very good without Rodgers, and the stats prove it.

    The Giants are better, and the Vikings are better…..I see 2 more losses within the next 2 weeks.

    I actually think the Giants game could be a blowout in the Giants favor, as it is on the road.

    They care more about that than they do their own team.

    What’s crazy is that they say Rodgers is a system QB and not good, but when he is hurt he’s the only good player.

    The Packers are better in every phase of the game than the Vikings, with or without Rodgers.

    I take my hat off to the Eagles. They got through some diversity in the beginning of the season and have looked to right their ship.
    I see no reason Vick starts again. He is what he is now, a back up. Foles is the guy moving forward.

    He showed a lot of poise today in the pocket. He certainly understood he could complete the long ball and he did.

    When a team gives up an 80 yard td and a 45 yard td they have no right to win. Especially when both those receivers were wide open.

    You can’t tell me the next several teams to face the Pack aren’t drooling over passing against that defense. Three more games and their pain will be over. No playoffs for them this year. Probably not next year since there is so much deadwood on this team to get rid of.

  126. kastout11 says: Nov 12, 2013 1:38 PM

    I am tired of people in Philly trying to ship Foles out of Philly already. Hoping he has a good season, so he has some trade value. Are you kidding me? Philly fans should hope he is the franchise qb, so that is one less hole they have to fill over the next couple of seasons. Maybe he is the franchise, maybe not, but to cheer for him so his trade value is higher is stupid. He does not fit Chip Kelly’s system; oh really, 16 touchdowns and zero interceptions. I don’t car whose offense this is, if you are playing the way he is, he fits the system. Give the guy a chance and hope he is the qb of the future. Who cares if he cannot run. I would rather by qb stay in the pocket anyway. I don’t want defensive players taking liberties at my qb like they did to Vick for years.
