 FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) -Tom Brady has yet to play in an exhibition game while nursing an injured right foot, and the New England Patriots have played poorly three times without him.
The latest effort produced a 27-17 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday night.
The Eagles returned two kicks for touchdowns in the last 1:35 of the first half, Donovan McNabb led three long drives, and backup Kevin Kolb directed a 90-yard march to David Akers' second field goal on their opening series of the third quarter.
By that time, it was 27-3 and Matt Cassel was done for the night after failing for the third straight game to show he deserved to remain as backup to Brady, last season's NFL MVP.
Cassel completed 8 of 14 passes for 60 yards and hasn't led a touchdown drive on any of his 15 series. He hobbled off after being sacked on his last play with about 10 minutes left in the third quarter.
Second-year pro Matt Gutierrez took over and did much better with fourth-quarter touchdown passes of 1 yard to Chad Jackson and 6 yards to C.J. Jones against backups for the Patriots (0-3).
McNabb rebounded from an unproductive game to go 13-for-17 for 180 yards and a 7-yard touchdown pass to Jason Avant for the Eagles (2-1).
Falcons 17, Titans 3
ATLANTA (AP) - Matt Ryan, making his first preseason start, opened the second half with a go-ahead touchdown pass and Atlanta beat Tennessee.
Ryan, the third pick in the draft, continued his bid to start as a rookie for the Falcons (1-2). He completed 15 of 21 passes for 102 yards with a 1-yard scoring pass to another rookie, Harry Douglas, and no interceptions.
Another Atlanta rookie, Thomas Brown, scored on a 9-yard run with 3:22 left to add to the lead.
Ryan outplayed Tennessee starter Vince Young - the No. 3 pick in 2006. Young was 9-of-18 for 102 yards and an interception for the Titans (2-1).
The biggest letdown for the Ryan-led offense came late in the first half.
Titans running back LenDale White was held out with sore ribs. Chris Johnson, a first-round pick, had 11 carries for 35 yards and two catches for 23 yards, all in the first half.
Kerry Collins replaced Young to open the second half.
Chris Redman, who finished last season as the Falcons' starting quarterback, led a 14-play, 90-yard touchdown drive in the fourth quarter.
Cowboys 23, Texans 22
IRVING, Texas (AP) - Tony Romo made up for overthrowing Terrell Owens on a certain touchdown and later getting intercepted in the end zone by completing 15 of 19 passes for 166 yards and a TD in Dallas' victory over Houston.
Houston backup quarterback Sage Rosenfels ran 8 yards for a touchdown with 2:05 left. Instead of a tying extra point, the Texans went for a 2-point conversion but Jacoby Jones couldn't handle the pass in the end zone.
Romo and Owens, who had four catches for 43 yards, didn't play after halftime. Cowboys coach Wade Phillips had planned to play the starters deep into the third quarter.
Matt Schaub and the Texans' starters played into the opening minute of the fourth quarter, when Kris Brown kicked his third field goal, a 29-yarder that got the Texans within 20-16. Schaub was 15-of-27 passing for 166 yards with an 11-yard TD to Kevin Walter.
Texans receiver Harry Williams was taken off the field on a stretcher with a neck injury after being hit in the head during a collision with teammate Nick Ferguson.
Texans coach Gary Kubiak said after the game that initial reports were good, but Williams would be hospitalized overnight.
Still-suspended cornerback Adam ``Pacman'' Jones made his first start for the Cowboys. He had one tackle, and gave up a 23-yard play to Walter.
