JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- Bryce Brown and Chris Polk ran for fourth-quarter touchdowns, and the Philadelphia Eagles rallied to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 31-24 in a preseason game Saturday night.

Nick Foles, who lost the starting job to Michael Vick earlier in the week, completed 10 of 11 passes for 112 yards in the second half.

Both teams with new head coaches got lengthy looks at starters.

Vick completed 15 of 23 passes for 184 yards, with a touchdown and an interception. He found Riley Cooper for a 9-yard score in the second quarter. Vick's best work came under pressure, when he kept several plays alive and scrambled for 53 yards.

Jacksonville's Chad Henne, who lost the starting job to Blaine Gabbert earlier in the week but got the start because Gabbert has a broken thumb, completed 11 of 18 passes for 106 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception.

well here we go again. one week they can't score point's and the defense give's up point's. the offense scored point's but the defense gave the game away. no happy medium on this team. they alway's seem to find a way to lose. it's a shame for the fan's who shell out big buck's to see some result's. but in the last bunch of year's they are a team who post losing record's.
