Eagles Lead 17-3 At The Half


At halftime in Indianapolis, the Eagles lead the Colts, 17-3. Take a look at how the game unfolded ...

Huff Comes Up Big

The wide receiver came on strong in the first half with two catches for 60 yard. He started off with a short catch that turned into a 38-yard gain in the first to set up a Jake Elliott field goal. Huff then continued his dominant play through the second quarter, coming up with a 9-yard touchdown run that put the Eagles up, 10-3, and then with a 22-yard catch with 6:02 left in the half.

DGB Nabs First Eagles Touchdown

With 4:28 on the clock before halftime, the offense was lined up for first-and-goal from the Colts' 4-yard line. Just plays removed from his first catch as an Eagle, Dorial Green-Beckham was about to tally his first touchdown. Sam Bradford looked to DGB and tossed the ball to the back of the end zone. The receiver jumped up and made the grab to wrap up a 71-yard scoring drive and score his first touchdown for Philadelphia. The points gave the team a 17-3 lead.

Dominant D-Line

The defense made its presence known early Saturday night, especially the defensive line. On the game's opening drive, pressure from Brandon Graham led to a Connor Barwin sack on quarterback Andrew Luck and forced an early punt from the Colts. The Eagles then brought Luck down again when Beau Allen notched a sack for a loss of eight yards with 3:52 remaining in the first. Bennie Logan gave the Eagles' their third sack of the night, when he brought down Luck at the end of the opening half. Additionally, the only points given up by the Eagles' defense in the first half came off a turnover that allowed the Colts to take over at the Eagles' 33.
