On a third and nine from the Eagles 33, Michael Vick scrambled 24 yards to the Indianapolis side, looking just a half step slower than his erstwhile Falcon years. Two plays later, Jason Avant took a crossing route for 34 yards down to the Colts 6-yard line. Unfortunately, a hitch to Desean Jackson went for minus-8 yards when Jackson tried to reverse fields and ran backwards. A quarterback hurry later and the Eagles were forced to kick a field goal, the third of the game for David Akers.
With a few minutes left in the first half, the Eagles lead 16-7.
