GREEN BAY–The Eagles stretched their lead over the Packers to 27-10 following three quarters of play at Lambeau Field on Sunday.

The Eagles scored on their first possession of the second half. LeSean McCoy ran for a 30-yard gain and then Nick Foles completed a 45-yard strike to Riley Cooper, who beat Davon House and M.D. Jennings. With 11:21 to play in the third quarter, the Packers trailed the Eagles, 17-3.

DeMeco Ryans intercepted a Scott Tolzien pass with 9:07 to play in the quarter and the Eagles had the ball at the Packers 43-yard line. Alex Henery booted a 41-yard field goal to increase the Eagles’ lead to 20-3 with 7:28 to play in the quarter.

The Packers got back within shouting distance of the Eagles, 20-10, when Tolzien capped a long drive with a 22-yard touchdown pass to Brandon Bostick with 3:22 to play in the quarter.

Foles, however, pitched a 32-yard touchdown pass to Cooper with only 10 seconds to play in the quarter.

NFL rushing leader LeSean McCoy topped the 100-yard rushing mark in the third quarter.

Evan Dietrich-Smith (knee) and Casey Hayward (hamstring) have been ruled out for the game.
