The Eagles head into the fourth quarter with a 39-20 lead after a tough third quarter.

The Packers started the quarter by gaining 24 yards in three plays, but a huge tackle by Najee Goode pushed them back 5 yards. The Packers were unable to convert the first down, forcing a punt back to the Eagles' offense.

Quarterback Matt Barkley entered the game for the first time but a quick three-and-out sent the ball right back to Green Bay.

Following a 50-yard punt by Donnie Jones, Green Bay started its possession from the 10-yard line.

Brett Hundley and the Packers' offense attempted to make their way down the field, but were forced to punt after a series of incomplete passes.

A 39-yard punt by Tim Masthay was caught by Kenjon Barner, who took a big hit at the 31-yard line to start the possession.

Two incomplete passes by Barkley and a sack put the ball right back in the Packers' hands resulted in a three-and-out for the Eagles' offense. 

Two passes by Hundley to Myles White gave the Packers 11 yards. On second down, Hundley completed a 15-yard pass to Kennard Backman. Another completed pass to White for 10 yards followed putting the Packers at the Eagles' 46-yard line.

The Packers entered the red zone and Hundley completed three passes followed by a short right pass to Backman for a touchdown.

A failed two-point conversion attempt left the score at 39-20 with 1:08 left in the third quarter.
