The Eagles, coming off a terrible loss to the division-rival Giants, headed to Cleveland in a game that could turn their season around.

The 6-win Browns were a beatable team, much like the Ravens were earlier in the year.

But beatable was does not mean that the Eagles would win.

The 3-5-1 Eagles visit the 6-3 Browns in a week 11 matchup on a rainy day in Cleveland. The Eagles have had some promising drives, but they ended with turnovers and punts. The Browns head into the half with a 7-0 lead, with the only points of the game coming off of a Carson Wentz pick six. Here's what we saw in the first 30 minutes of action:


First Half Offensive MVP

RB Miles Sanders

Sanders had an incredible first half with the exception of one terrible play which was a fumble in the red zone. The Eagles have been feeding Sanders and hopefully they will continue to do so in the second half. The second year Running Back finished the half with 63 rushing yards on 11 carries, and one catch for three yards. A big second half from Sanders will be pivotal to the Eagles coming away from this game with a win.


First Half Defensive MVP

The Eagles Run Defense

Going up against a run heavy team, the Eagles have done a great job stopping the run. The Birds have held the Browns to just 18 rushing yards in the first 30 minutes. The Eagles will need to continue slow down the Browns run game if they want to fly home victorious.


Who Needs To Step Up

The Eagles Offense

The Eagles offense started the game off promising, but they are yet to score any points. The Eagles offense will need to figure things out in the second half because they’re going to have to score some points if they want to win this game.


Who To Watch Out For

WR Rashard Higgins

The Browns offense did not have a great first half, but they did have a couple big plays including a 43-yard catch by WR, Rashard Higgins. Containing Higgins and making sure they don’t give up any more big plays will be key to the Eagles winning this week 11 matchup.

Many fans were disappointed not to see Jordan Howard back in midnight green this season, but the back signed a lucrative deal with Miami.

Coming off an injury, Miami signed the fifth-year man to a two-year, $9.75 million deal.

Things did not go as planned, however as Howard was largely ineffective (33 yards on 28 attempts) in his time with the Dolphins and, after several weeks of being a healthy scratch, the two sides parted ways.

He did punch in four short touchdowns, but five games was not what the Dolphins were expecting for the $4.75 million they paid out to the back.

For the Eagles, an injury to Miles Sanders and lack of production from Corey Clement has left room for improvement in the running back room, so the Eagles will bring the big back in on their practice squad (Per NFL Network's Ian Rapoport) to, hopefully, turn his season around.

The Eagles had a bye week and some time to rest up.

They entered the week with a healthy Lane Johnson, Dallas Goedert, Alshon Jeffery, Cre’Von LeBlanc and Nate Herbig and still managed to lose to a team with virtually no talent.

They got a performance from Carson Wentz that featured no turnovers.

The Eagles extended their lead over the division simply by not playing last weekend, but on Monday the team had to become focused on the Giants as they are set to head to New York to take on the team that earned their second win on Sunday.

Although they are already set to return players like Miles Sanders and Alshon Jeffery, who are not on IR, they made another step in the right direction Monday morning.

Veteran offensive lineman Isaac Seumalo had his 21-day practice window activated, meaning he should be back on the roster and ready to play. It is unclear whether his activation will be this week or in the coming weeks, however.

The Eagles may have a bye week, but Doug Pederson had the team come into the facilities anyway as they have not had good showings and need to improve.

That plan may backfire, however, as the team has had it's first player land on the COVID list during this season.

Marcus Epps has been placed on the list and an earlier report from the team specified that one player tested positive, so Epps is the player who had the positive test result.

The Eagles were atrocious on Sunday Night Football.

The embarrassingly bad Cowboys entered halftime with the lead and the Eagles offense managed just two effective drives against a historically bad defense.

But what always really matters is the win or the loss and the Birds escaped with the win.
