Mike Glennon wasn’t bad. But Nick Foles is nearly perfect in Tampa.
The Eagles quarterback overcame a sluggish start to finish on a high during a 31-20 win over the winless Buccaneers.
Foles threw for three touchdowns and ran for another to steal the show in a game between guys who began the season as backups. Coupled with his start there last December, Foles has thrown for 677 yards, with five touchdowns and no interceptions in Raymond James Stadium.
The Bucs stayed in the game until Foles’ 36-yard touchdown pass to DeSean Jackson (his second on the day) made the lead 11 early in the fourth quarter.
Glennon was solid, throwing a pair of touchdowns to Vincent Jackson, but it wasn’t enough in Foles’ house.
