Quarterback Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles' offense came out firing on all cylinders as they drove 80 yards in just under four minutes, capped off by a Foles touchdown pass to tight end Clay Harbor to put the Eagles on top 21-14.
After a Patriot three and out, the Eagles then pushed into New England territory once again. However, this possession ended in a missed 55-yard field goal by Alex Henery.
With the lead now 21-17, the Eagles again drove behind Foles, gaining 56 yards in seven plays. Again, they were forced to kick a field goal, but this time successfully -- a 42-yarder off the foot of Alex Henery.
Brian Hoyer entered the game under center for the Patriots just before half, replacing Ryan Mallett.
