The Eagles lead the Browns 10-3 after what was a pretty ugly first half from both teams.

The Eagles lead the Browns 10-3 after what was a pretty ugly first half from both teams. The Eagles have turned the ball over twice and been plagued by 60 yards worth of penalties. The Browns have 2 turnovers of their own and have managed just over a hundred yards of offense.

Philadelphia has struggled to protect Michael Vick, who has been sacked twice and hit multiple times. Some of those have been protection issues, but Vick's decision making has been questionable as well. His INT was just careless as you'll see below. Rolling out against the blitz he throws the ball to no one across his body.

This came after Vick started strong completing his first 6 passes. However, he would finish the half more like the start as he hit Jeremy Maclin with a 46 yard pass down the sideline and found Maclin again with an 18 yard TD on the next play to take the lead with :17 left in the half.

The Eagles defense has had very little to complain about as they've shut down Browns rookie RB Trent Richardson to the tune of just 25 yards on 11 carries. Rookie QB Brandon Weeden has also struggled going 7-19 with 2 picks and a number of open WRs missed.

Heading into the second half, its all about the Eagles offense building off the last drive. They really bogged down after their turnovers and failed to move, but they made it look easy on the final drive. For the defense, we just want to see more of the same.
