The Eagles defense looked like they needed a little help and they got it from Sam Bradford. The second year QB seemed to have some miscommunication with RB Cadillac Williams and failed to get the handoff completed. Darryl Tapp then got through and stripped Bradford, Juqua Parker scooped up the loose ball and returned it 56 yards for the Eagles second score of the game.
It was Parker’s second career TD, he also had a 55 yard INT return against the 49ers in 2008. It was the sixth longest fumble for a TD return in team history.
The first quarter is now over with the Eagles leading 14-7. The Rams are going to have to pick things up if they want to fulfill Marshall Faulk's pregame prediction that they would score 40 on the Eagles defense.
