As bad as the first half was, the second half showed how dangerous this Eagles team can actually be. Foles started out especially slow, but finished with 322 yards passing for two touchdowns and one interception. McCoy and Sproles rushed for 74 and 71 yards respectively, and eight different receivers caught passes from Foles today. Maclin led the way for the pass catchers, finishing with 97 yards and a touchdown on four receptions.
The defense, awful in the first quarter, tightened up their game the rest of the way. The Jaguars had a field goal blocked in the second quarter, which prevented a 20 point deficit for the birds. Not only did they hold the Jaguars scoreless during the last three quarters, they also scored on a fumble recovery and looked scary in the process.
The Eagles that came to play in the second half needs to show up from the get go if they want to beat the Colts next Monday night.
Next Game: Monday September 15, @ Indianapolis Colts, 8:30 pm
