The Eagles have now lost five straight for the first time during coach Andy Reid's 14 season. They last lost five in a row to open the 1998 season in coach Ray Rhodes' final year.

The Eagles led 17-10 when Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo started the rally with a 30-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Dez Bryant on the final play of the third quarter. Dwayne Harris next scored on a 78-yard punt return and cornerback Brandon Carr returned an interception of Foles 47 yards for a TD.

Foles replaced  Vick in the second quarter after Vick suffered his concussion. Foles became the first Eagles' rookie to throw a TD pass since running back Brian Westbrook in 2002 when he found wide receiver Jeremy Maclin for a 44-yard score in the third quarter.

Foles completed 22-of-32 passes for 218 yards with one TD and one interception.

The Eagles cut the gap to 34-23 on fullback Stanley Havili's 1-yard TD with 1:55 to go, but Alex Henery missed his first extra point in two years.

On the next possession, Foles fumbled on a sack by Cowboys defensive tackle Anthony Spencer and defensive tackle Jason Hatcher recovered it in the end zone for a touchdown.
