A nice first half for the Eagles, who for won't have to answer questions about a slow start this week (except on kick coverage). The defense produced two turnovers, the offense scored on three of its four drives, tallying 17 points. Injuries to Jason Peters and Brodrick Bunkley are two of the very few things for the Eagles to be worried about, and even more worrisome, Trent Cole went to the locker room early. If he can't return, that will be big trouble as the Eagles try to protect a seven point lead.
- Kevin Kolb, highly criticized for being too passive last week, came out firing and aggressive on his first drive. He hit a long cross field throw to Brent Celek for 32 yards, fired a pass in to Jason Avant despite a small window, and bought time before finding Celek again for a touchdown. Nice response to a rough outing. At least early. He finished the half 12 for 14 for 123 yards and a touchdown, and led his team to 17 points, but he was lucky that a late fumble wasn't more costly.
- The Eagles continue to be bit by injuries. Brodrick Bunkley left with a left elbow injury and is doubtful to return. Antonio Dixon was getting significant time in his place.
- Moise Fokou made the most of his chance to start, forcing a fumble on the 49ers second drive, setting up an Eagles field goal. It was the first fumble recovery for the Eagles defense this season.
