The Eagles have taken a surprising 13-10 lead into the half over the Bengals at Lincoln Financial Field.

The game has been a bit of a comedy of errors so far with the teams combining for 3 turnovers. The Eagles coughed the ball up on the second play of the game and the Bengals would convert for a TD. On the next series, Marvin McNutt would get blocked into Mat McBriar's punt, blocking it and giving the Bengals the ball inside the 20. Cincy could only manage a FG.

Then the Bengals decided they wanted in on the action. Brandon Graham strip sacked Andy Dalton and the Eagles made them pay when Nick Foles hit Riley Cooper for a TD. Cullen Jenkins would then get a strip sack of his own before the Eagles added a pair of FGs prior to the end of the half.

The Eagles defensive line has sacked Dalton 4 times already, a season high for them.
