The energy in the second half, WHERE HAS THAT BEEN ALL SEASON? There were some points where the offense was somewhat flat but the offense did just enough to tie the game up and force overtime. The defense did not play well in the second half. The Giants just happened to be really bad in the second half. In overtime, the Eagles came out HOT. Quick throws to Sanders and Scott got the Birds rolling all the way down on the game winning drive. At the half, the Eagles were down 17-3, and they played down to their opponent for the entire second half. Here's what I saw in the back half of performance:

The Eagles face the Giants in week 14 of the regular season. The Eagles offense has looked horrible, finishing the half with just 116 total yards and three points. The Eagles head into the half down 17-3 in a must win game for the Birds. Here is what we saw in the first 30 minutes of action:


First Half Offensive MVP

TE Zach Ertz. Ertz has been the Eagles lone bright spot finishing the half with five catches for 69 yards. Ertz had two 20+ yard receptions that led to an Eagles field goal in the second quarter.


First Half Defensive MVP

S Malcolm Jenkins. Jenkins had a great first half with four total tackles and one pass deflected. Jenkins’ pass deflected saved a touchdown that would have put the Giants up two possessions.


Who Needs To Step Up

CB Ronald Darby. Darby has had a horrible first half, missing a tackle on third down that led to a touchdown and giving up a huge 42 yard reception. Darby finished out the half giving up a 55 yard touchdown bomb to put the Eagles down 14 points at the half. Darby is going to need to have an incredible second half if the Eagles want to mount a huge comeback


Who To Watch Out For

RB Saquon Barkley. Barkley is the Giants main play-maker and will be a huge part in their running and passing game in the second half. Barkley had a decent first half, finishing with 39 yards on 10 carries.


Week 14 Preview: New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles

By Matt Szczypiorski, Sports Talk Philly Contributing Writer

Every time I think that the season might be over, the Cowboys just lose again and keep the Eagles life support plugged in.

After an absolutely humiliating loss to the lowly Miami Dolphins last Sunday, the Eagles return home for a Monday night match-up with the rival New York Giants.

The Giants are not good. I’d say that the Eagles should beat this team, but the Eagles are also not good.

I’m done with the excuses. I don’t want to hear it. I’m done with the “They would have a better record if the receivers could catch.” I’m so over it. At this point in the season, you are what your record says you are. The Eagles are 5-7. At this point in time, they are a bad football team.

Also, what self-respecting head coach has the nerve to say that a 2-9 Dolphin team made more plays because they “wanted it more.” Really? A two win team wanted it more than a team fighting for a playoff spot? If that’s really the case, then that lack of effort is on you, Dougie P. I’m so sick of it. Figure it out.

Injury Report: Giants at Eagles

By Paul Bowman, Sports Talk Philly Editor

Despite a huge loss that seemed Earth shattering last week, the embarrassed Eagles remain in contention of the NFC East and a home game in the playoffs.

The Cowboys losing to the Bears keeps them just half a game ahead of the Birds and gives the Eagles the third tie breaker over the Cowboys should the teams tie in record, head to head and division record.

That said, the Eagles just need to win their final four games - all against NFC East opponents - to get into the playoffs. Who knows what the Eagles could do if they manage to get healthy and have both Jordan Howard and DeSean Jackson back on the offense.

By Paul Bowman, Sports Talk Philly Editor

The Eagles made what is likely to be their biggest move this week on Tuesday by releasing receiver Mack Hollins.

On Wednesday the Eagles made a minor move by switching players on their practice squad, exchanging safety Chris Johnson for returner and cornerback Tremon Smith.

While the Eagles have avoided making any sweeping changes, at least until the end of the season, it would seem, they are making moves.

On Tuesday, the Eagles announced the release of one of the most hated players on the Eagles roster, receiver Mack Hollins.

Eagles Evaluation: Embarrassing Offense Replaced With Embarrassing Defense

Hard Rock Stadium

By Paul Bowman, Sports Talk Philly Editor

Remember when the Eagles defense was playing lights out? When they held Super Bowl contenders to under 20 points? Not this week.

This week, the Eagles scored enough points that the only teams to score more than they did on the Dolphins this season were the Ravens, Patriots and Bills.

The only team to give up more points than the Eagles is no one. They had literally the worst defensive performance against the Dolphins and perhaps in the league.

No longer is just the offense embarrassed, everyone on this team should be embarrassed. They have all failed this city at some point since the bye week.

Postgame Report: Eagles vs. Dolphins

Scoreboard
By Evan Krawczuk, Contributing Writer

HAHAHAHAHAHA. The Miami Dolphins! We let the Miami Dolphins hang around and win. With everyone back from injury, we still let the woeful, 2-9, Dolphins beat us. We should've blown them out of the water (no pun intended). This team doesn't not deserve to be in any playoff conversation and should honestly be embarrassed by their performance this year. At the half, the Eagles were up 21-14, and they played down to their opponent for the entire second half. Here's what I saw in the back half of performance:

Halftime Report: Eagles at Dolphins

Scoreboard

By Matt Ryan, Sports Talk Philly Contributor

The Eagles face the Dolphins in week 13 of the regular season. The Eagles defense started out hot but has slowed down on the last few drives allowing the Dolphins to get back into the game. The Birds head into the half up 21 to 14 in a must win game. Here's what we saw in the first 30 minutes of action:


First Half Offensive MVP

RB Miles Sanders. Sanders has been heart of this Eagles offense in the first half, rushing for 54 yards while adding on 24 receiving yards and a touchdown.


First Half Defensive MVP

DE Derek Barnett. Barnett has had a great first half finishing with three tackles, one sack, and three QB hits. Barnett has played a huge part in limiting the Dolphins to just 32 rushing yards at the break.


Who Needs To Step Up

QB Carson Wentz. Wentz has had a decent half finishing with 148 passing yards and two touchdown. Wentz needs to have a better second half, completing some easier throws that he has been missing if the Eagles want to run away with this game.


Who To Watch Out For

WR Devante Parker. Parker has had a huge first half, finishing with three catches for 92 yards and a touchdown. If the Eagles are going to run away with this game they are going to need to contain Parker in the second half.
