Starting their first drive of the second half at the 24 after Darryl Tapp popped the ball out of Aaron Rodgers’ hand for a Juqua Parker fumble recovery, the Eagles only required two plays to finally get into the end zone. One of them was an incomplete pass to LeSean McCoy. The other was a Michael Vick rope to Jason Avant down the middle of the field for a 24-yard touchdown reception. Avant’s got 4 catches for 55 yards today and easily the team’s best player so far.
This has to give the whole team a big dose of confidence as the defense handed the offense the short field with which to score. The Packers still lead by 4, but with almost a full half of football to go, the skies are certainly clearing (metaphorically) over Lincoln Financial Field right now.
