Eagles vs Buccaneers 2nd half thread

The Eagles are taking a surprising 10-0 lead into the half over the Bucs at Raymond James stadium.

The defense had arguably its best half of the year shutting out Tampa and limiting them to just 79 yards. Josh Freeman is just 5-16 on the day thanks to an improved performance from the Jim Washburn-less defensive line and inspired play from the secondary, particularly DRC.

On offense, the Bucs #1 ranked run defense has lived up to its billing holding Bryce Brown to just 5 yards on 10 carries. However, they did lose contain on Nick Foles in the red zone and in what will likely be the slowest TD you'll ever see, the rookie scored from 10 yards out.

Fletcher Cox had a sack in the first half, giving him 4 on the season. It's the most by an Eagles rookie DT since Corey Simon 12 years ago.
