TAMPA, Fla. - The Eagles are 30 minutes away from ending their eight-game losing streak.

Rookie quarterback Nick Foles scored on a 10-yard run and place-kicker Alex Henery booted a 28-yard field goal to give the Eagles a 10-0 lead over Tampa Bay at Raymond James Stadium.

Henery opened the scoring with his 22nd straight field goal with 7:13 left in the half. His streak came to an end when he missed a 58-yarder wide left at the end of the half. Henery originally made a 53-yarder, but the Eagles were called for being offsides.

Foles followed a 39-yard pass to wide receiver Jason Avant by sprinting into the end zone for his first career rushing TD with 1:40 to play.

Foles completed 16 of 23 passes for 193 yards in the first half. Rookie running back Bryce Brown was held to 5 yards on 10 carries by the league's top rushing defense.
