The Eagles controlled much of the third quarter, putting together a pair of solid drives despite being unable to run the ball or give Foles more than two seconds to look over the field. Still, both drives ended prematurely and Philadelphia settled for 33- and 38-yard field goals from Cody Parkey to extend their lead to 27-20.

But, finally, what we all knew was going to happen happened, when DeSean Jackson pulled in a lazy Cousins’ pass for an 81-yard touchdown to tie the game. Safety Nate Allen, as he’s been apt to do throughout his career, jumped an underneath route when he was supposed to have over-the-top coverage on the deep route, hanging Cary Williams out to dry.

The Eagles generated no pass rush on the play, a theme throughout the slugfest.
