Third Quarter: Long Day For Eagles


When it rains, it pours. And through three quarters, the Eagles have gotten lost in the flood.

After falling behind 7-0 early in the game, the Eagles knotted things up at seven at the start of the second quarter. But since then, they've been outscored 31-0 by the Lions, with Detroit scoring 14 in the third quarter.

Calvin Johnson's Career Day

Calvin Johnson was the target on one of Matthew Stafford's three touchdown passes in the first half, and in the second quarter he caught two more. On the day he has eight catches for 93 yards and three touchdowns.

Broken Ankle For Carroll

Early in the second quarter, cornerback Nolan Carroll had his leg rolled up on while defending an outside run. He was carted off the field, and rookie Eric Rowe was inserted into the base defense in his place. The Eagles announced later in quarter that he would not return, and he was taken in for X-rays on his right ankle. But in the third, it was announced that he'd suffered a broken ankle.

Huff Being Evaluated For A Concussion
