Eagles Roar Back, Clip Colts at the Wire

Eagles Roar Back, Clip Colts at the Wire

Rich Shultz/Getty Images(INDIANAPOLIS) —  Trailing by seven with five minutes to play, Nick Foles led the Philadelphia Eagles on two scoring drives, the second ending with Cody Parkey hitting a go-ahead field goal with time expiring, as the Eagles clip the Indianapolis Colts, 30-27, Monday night.

The Colts (0-2) never trailed until Parkey hit the game-winning kick. Indianapolis went into halftime up 17-6 after Andrew Luck found tight end Jack Doyle for a two-yard touchdown. The Colts furthered their lead in the second half when Adam Vinatieri’s field goal made it 20-6 with 6:43 remaining in the third quarter.

Despite the deficit the Eagles (2-0) never panicked, scoring on two touchdowns in less than two minutes to finish off the third tied 20-20.  The Colts answered back on their first drive of the fourth quarter when Luck threw his third touchdown of the game, a seven-yard pass to Ahmad Bradshaw, to go back up by seven.

The game stayed that way until the the 3:25 mark when Foles found Jeremy Maclin for a six-yard touchdown to tie it up. The Eagles defense made Indianapolis go four and out before Parkey hit the game-winning field goal.

“We felt we had some plays (in the first half), we just couldn’t make them,” Eagles coach Chip Kelly said. “But we’re going to play 60 minutes and we played 60 minutes.”

Darren Sproles made seven catches for 152 yards and a touchdown in the win.

Andrew Luck lost two consecutive games for the first time since joining the NFL, despite throwing three touchdowns.
