We know the last thing you want to hear about concerning the Eagles is turnovers, but we have good news ... They are halfway to correcting their problems.

If they could hold onto the ball as well in the first half (minus-7 TO differential) as they do after intermission (even), they’d be in business.

They haven’t had a turnover in their last three second halves (plus-1). By contrast, they don’t have a takeaway in their last three first halves (minus-5).

Here are their takeaway and giveaway numbers so far this season, by half:

  FIRST HALF SECOND HALF
 Opponent     Take   Give   Diff.   Take    Give   Diff. 
 Browns 2 2 Even 2 3 —1 
 Ravens 1 3 —2 1 1 Even
 Cardinals 0 3 —3 0 0 Even 
 Giants 0 0 Even 1 0 +1
 Steelers 0 2 —2 0 0 Even
 Totals 3 10 —7 4 4 Even
