Nick Foles still owns Tom Brady.
Trailing by two with 2:21 left, Foles led a nine-play, 32-yard drive that led to a game-winning 38-yard field goal by Cairo Santos. It was the sixth, and final, lead change of the night.
“That’s who he is,” Bears coach Matt Nagy told reporters after the game. “All in all, the offense made plays when they had to, and I think that’s one of the special traits Nick has.”
Foles finished 30 for 42 for 243 yards, a touchdown and an interception. The former Super Bowl MVP is now 1-1 as Chicago’s starter and 2-1 in games in which he’s appeared.
Here are his highlights:
Fellow Wildcat Rob Gronkowski had one of his best games as a Buc, hauling in three passes for 52 yards.
Brady was 25 for 41 for 253 yards and a touchdown as the Bucs fell to 3-2 on the season. He made an embarrassing gaffe on Tampa’s final drive, thinking his incomplete pass on 4th and 5 was actually on third down.
