NFL: Philadelphia 27, Green Bay 13

Nov. 10, 2013 at 5:17 PM

GREEN BAY, Wis., Nov. 10 (UPI) -- Philadelphia's Nick Foles threw two of his three touchdown passes to Riley Cooper Sunday and the Eagles took care of injury-riddled Green Bay 27-13.

Foles and Riley put the game out of reach with third-quarter touchdown plays 45 and 32 yards, extending the Eagles' 10-3 halftime lead.

Philadelphia (5-5) scored on its first three possessions of the second half.

The Packers (5-4), meanwhile, dropped a second straight as Seneca Wallace -- who was subbing for the injured Aaron Rodgers -- was himself knocked out of the game with a first-quarter groin injury.

Green Bay was forced to turn to practice squad signal-caller Scott Tolzien, who tossed a pair of interceptions while going 24-of-39 through the air for 280 yards with a touchdown.

With the loss, the Packers fell one game behind Detroit for the lead in the NFC North.
