The Philadelphia Eagles rallied for a second successive week to record a 30-27 victory with a Cody Parkey field goal as time expired to beat the Indianapolis Colts on Monday.

The Eagles trailed 20-6 in the third quarter and were down 27-20 late in the fourth before Parkey's 36-yard field goal as time expired.

Philadelphia enjoyed a similar fightback last week when they overcame a 17-point halftime deficit to beat Jacksonville.

Quarterback Nick Foles threw for 331 yards and a touchdown on Monday to mastermind their second half fightback.

 

Foles led an 80-yard drive that saw LeSean McCoy score from one yard out and pull the Eagles within 20-13 in the third.

Philadelphia tied the game 20-20 less than two minutes later after recovering an Indianapolis fumble and getting a 19-yard scoring run by Darren Sproles.

Indianapolis responded with a seven-yard touchdown pass from Andrew Luck to Ahmad Bradshaw and appeared ready for victory before Luck threw an interception deep in Philadelphia territory.

That allowed Foles to lead another march downfield and connect with Jeremy Maclin on a six-yard touchdown that tied the game 27-27 with three and a half minutes to go.
