Nick Foles threw for two touchdowns and led four scoring drives after taking over for an injured Michael Vick late in the second quarter, and the Philadelphia Eagles kept the New York Giants winless with a 36-21 victory Sunday.

Foles threw fourth-quarter touchdown passes of 25 yards to Brent Celek and 5 yards to DeSean Jackson as the Eagles (2-3) snapped a three-game losing streak by forcing three interceptions by Eli Manning in the fourth quarter.

Vick left the game with a hamstring injury late in the second quarter.

LeSean McCoy added a 1-yard touchdown run and Alex Henery kicked five field goals for the Eagles, who gained 439 yards in total offense.

David Wilson scored on a 5-yard run for the Giants (0-5) and Manning threw two touchdowns to Rueben Randle in the third quarter to give New York a 21-19 lead.
