The Eagles are overcoming themselves, and are fortunate to be playing a team the caliber of the Browns.
They’re turning it over, having a hard time protecting quarterback Michael Vick and generally floundering about. They’re also up 10-3 at the half.
Vick hit Jeremy Maclin for a touchdown just before the half to take the lead, but the Browns aren’t providing a terrible amount of resistance.
Browns running back Trent Richardson popped Eagles safety Kurt Coleman’s helmet off in a play you’ll see over and over (and over and over and over) in the next few days, but that 9-yard gain was his biggest of the day.
He has 11 carries for 25 yards at halftime, meaning he’s averaging 1.6 per carry on his non-exploding equipment runs.
