Tom Brady went 34 of 42 for 297 yards, two touchdowns and one interception, while Leonard Fournett threw two counts and 81 yards with 22 carries; The Philadelphia Eagles had just 99 yards of attack over three quarters before making a later comeback.

Tom Brady made two touchdowns and Leonard Fournett threw in two when the Tampa Bay Buccaneers took a 28-22 away win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday night.

Eagles quarterback Jalen Herts, who found TD Zach Ertz tight end in the first quarter, hit the endzone twice in the second half as Philadelphia threatened a comeback.

But Brady and the Bucs attackers got the ball back with five minutes and 54 seconds remaining in the fight, and they methodically rode across the field and ran out the rest of the time to secure the win.

Brady doesn’t seem to have a sore thumb on the throwing hand he picked up last week when he completed 34 of his 42 pass attempts at 297 yards. However, his franchise record of 227 no-interception shots came to an end when Anthony Harris of Philadelphia knocked him out late in the first half.

The Eagles QB Hurts completed 12 of 26 passes for 115 yards, with one TD and one interception. He also threw 44 yards and those two scores in the second half, but Philadelphia only had 99 yards on attack in the first three quarters of the game, which ultimately cost them.

Both intruders opened fire to start the game: Brady made two and 23 yards touchdown passes to Howard and Brown on their first two shots, and Herts spotted Ertz with five yards sandwiched between them.

After that, the defense dominated the remainder of the first half, with both quarterbacks intercepting the ball, and Furnett’s first touchdown was the only other move that didn’t end with a kick.
