Packers Lead 39-13 After Three

GREEN BAY, Wis. – A rough afternoon for the Eagles remained so in the second half as the Eagles now trail 39-13 after three quarters.

The insult added to the injury of the scoreline was a 52-yard interception return for a touchdown for Packers linebacker Julius Peppers. Peppers dropped into coverage and picked off Mark Sanchez for Sanchez's first interception in two starts.

Earlier in the quarter, Mason Crosby made a 33-yard field goal.

To the Eagles' credit, Sanchez and the offense bounced back from the interception to the tune of a 10-play, 80-yard touchdown drive capped by a 10-yard Jordan Matthews catch and run. The Eagles converted a fourth down on the drive when Sanchez found Zach Ertz for 22 yards.

The Packers will begin the fourth quarter in Eagles' territory on the 32-yard-line.
