The Eagles lead 49 players to 8-7 at half-time, in a low-scoring and erroneous affair where two teams have already suffered more injuries. Things started slowly as Carson Vents dropped his first throw to the ground and then threw an interception in the second drive of Billy’s game. He eventually found a rhythm with wide receiver Greg Ward, but Wentz did most of his first half with his feet, rushing 24 yards and three for a score, after which the Eagles added a two-point shift. Miles Sanders struggled without a trace, but it was somewhat understandable with three attacking line-ups sidelined to start the game and Pro Bowl tackle Lane Johnson landed early.
On the other end of the ball, Nick Mullens found a relationship with George Kitt (6 for 89 yards) but struggled to finish the pass to anyone else (3 for 8 and 3 for 30 yards). He made a bad decision to give the Knights a chance on a scoring drive, which would have given them the lead. Most likely, he was asked to get the ball in the hands of Kitty, Depo Samuel (two touches, one catch and one run, for a total of 27 yards) and Brandon Ayyuk. Mullens took a smoke screen home from 38 yards, broke several barriers and blocked a guard on the way. (The play was judged to be a run because the bass went backwards.)
Each team had several second-quarter chances to score, but could not combine an entire movement together. So, we entered the half with a score of 8-7 Philadelphia. Can Billy get his first win of the season? Can you continue the toughest division in San Francisco football? Blog as we live in the second half.
