The Eagles offense has sputtered all day, but finally seemed to come to life at the end of the half thanks to LeSean McCoy. The man they call "Shady" scored a TD for the ninth consecutive game, breaking the Eagles franchise record of 8 straight games with a TD previously held by Steve Van Buren. It was McCoy's 12th TD of the season, which leads the NFL.
The Eagles other score came from a defensive TD when Asante Samuel picked off Cardinals QB John Skelton and returned the ball 20 yards for a TD. No player in the NFL has more INTs than Samuel over the past four seasons. It was his fifth pick six of his career.
The Arizona score came on a 10 yard strike from John Skelton to Larry Fitzgerald to tie the game at 7-7. The Cardinals had moved the ball well in the first quarter, but came up empty when Jay Feeley missed two FGs.
