Former Wildcat Foles leads Eagles over Patriots

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) - Michael Vick keeps taking his lumps. His Philadelphia Eagles keep winning.

The star quarterback was leveled after throwing a long pass in the first quarter and underwent X-rays for the second straight game - negative again. Then former Arizona Wildcat QB Nick Foles led the Eagles to a 27-17 preseason victory over the New England Patriots on Monday night.

Vick had X-rays on his ribs after being knocked down by linebacker Jermaine Cunningham. Eleven days earlier, in a 24-23 win over Pittsburgh, he had X-rays on his left thumb after hitting it on center Jason Kelce's helmet.

Foles threw two touchdown passes for the second straight game for the Eagles (No. 8 in the AP Pro32).

Tom Brady sat out the game for the Patriots (No. 2).
