    Nick Foles found Jeremy Maclin for a 1-yard touchdown as time expired to lift the Philadelphia Eagles past the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 23-21, on Sunday.

    The Eagles trailed 21-10 and scored with 3:55 remaining to make it a one-score game, then took over again on their own 36-yard line with just 2:44 left. They drove to the one-yard line where the rookie signal-caller took the shotgun snap and delivered a perfect pass to Maclin, who slid across the end zone on his knees.

    It was unclear if Maclin was able to keep his left foot inbounds, but the call was confirmed following an official review.

    Philadelphia (4-9) snapped an eight-game losing streak -- the longest since Andy Reid took over as head coach in 1999 -- with the win while the Bucs (6-7) lost their third straight to fall further behind in the NFC playoff race.
