Brady didn't appear to be hampered by a sore thumb on his throwing hand that he'd picked up last week, as he completed 34 of his 42 pass attempts, for 297 yards. However, his franchise record of 227 throws without an interception came to an end when Philadelphia's Anthony Harris picked him off late in the first half.
Highlights of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' clash with the Philadelphia Eagles in Week Six of the NFL.
Watch Tom Brady's best throws from his 297-yard night for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Thursday Night Football.
Thereafter, defense dominated the remainder of the first half, with both quarterbacks throwing interceptions, and Fournette's first touchdown run the only other drive that didn't end with a punt.
But Brady and the Bucs offense got the ball back with five minutes and 54 seconds left in the contest and they methodically drove down the field and ran out the rest of the clock to secure victory.
Brady threw touchdown passes to Antonio Brown and O.J. Howard before the half, with Fournette's pair of rushing scores coming either side of the break as the Bucs opened up a massive 28-7 lead.
Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts, who in the first quarter found tight end Zach Ertz for a TD, found the endzone twice in the second half as Philly threatened to mount a comeback.
Eagles QB Hurts completed 12 of 26 passes for 115 yards, with one TD toss and one interception. He also rushed for 44 yards and those two second-half scores, but Philadelphia had just 99 total yards of offense through the first three quarters of the game which ultimately cost them.
But Philadelphia wouldn't see the ball again, with the wily 44-year-old Brady running out the remaining time with a superbly-executed game-winning drive - which included two key third-down conversions, one a 27-yard strike to Brown and the other a quarterback sneak to move the chains.

Fournette would find the endzone again late in the third quarter, before Philadelphia finally woke up on offense. Hurts scrambled in for a score from the six-yard line on the Eagles' next possession to cut their deficit to 14.
A successful two-point conversion - Hurts hitting Quez Watkins in the endzone - saw the Eagles suddenly trail by just six with practically just as many minutes left on the clock.
After a Tampa Bay punt, they missed the chance to eat into that lead further as Jake Elliott missed with a 46-yard field goal attempt, but then after the Bucs turned the ball over on downs - Brady's deep ball for Howard on 4th-and-3 from the Philadelphia 46-yard line falling incomplete - Hurts would score a second rushing touchdown for the Eagles.
Watch Leonard Fournette's best runs from two-TD night for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers against the Philadelphia Eagles.
