The Eagles with backup quarterback Nick Foles started well and scored on their first drive of the game as he led them downfield and ran the ball into the end zone himself from four yards on a draw play to give his side the lead.
Greg Schiano's side thought that they had responded when Darrelle Revis stripped the ball from LeSean McCoy and ran it back into the end zone, but he was ruled down by contact after the fumble.
It got better for the home side early in the second quarter when Glennon moved his offense into the red zone and then he fooled the Eagles defense with play-action before firing a dart over the middle to Vincent Jackson, who evaded a tackle and ran into the end zone for a 24-yard score.
Foles and the Eagles came back at the Buccaneers and restored their lead as he moved the ball well and drove into the red zone, where he found DeSean Jackson on a crossing route at the back of the end zone for a 12-yard touchdown.
However, Glennon and the Bucs hit back just before the break when he moved his team downfield against the Eagles defense and found Jackson again in the end zone for a one-yard strike to give them the lead.
