HELP!!!! Brisket Temp Going backward.......

Cooking whole brisket, temp rose to 200 and I thermo-pened. Wasn't quite done in some spots. Internal was 195 and not like butter yet. When I checked it was wrapped in foil. Since that time the temp has gone backwards. Been checking every 30 mins. Now reading 182 in both thermopen and maverick.....what's the deal?? Back wrapped in egg. Temp at 260. Meat also seems tougher now than before.

    @henapple what happened? Can it still be tender. Seemed so close to done now feeling tough.
