The Eagles lead the Falcons at the half, 7-6.

After a strong first quarter, the Eagles sputtered. Caleb Sturgis missed a 44 yard field goal, and the Falcons immediately replied with a 29 yard pass to Julio Jones. That led to a Falcons field goal to make 7-3. After an Eagles three and out, the Falcons kicked another field goal to make it 7-6.

The Eagles responded with a couple of big plays to get into Falcons territory, but then Vic Beasley stripped Carson Wentz of the football and the Falcons recovered. On the ensuing drive Matt Bryant missed a 53 yard field goal.

Nolan Carroll left with a head injury.
