Coming off the heartbreak of the Phillies postseason elimination, the city of Philadelphia looked to the Eagles to pick up their spirits. Despite taking a 16-7 lead on the Titans, the Eagles fumbled away their hopes as they dropped the game to the Titans.

Things looked pretty good in the first half. The Eagles weren’t putting up the type of numbers they did last week against the Falcons, but they did what they had to in order to put themselves in the lead. Deep into the second quarter, the Eagles were up 16-7 and had the game in their hands.

A fumble between the exchange from Kevin Kolb and LeSean McCoy inside the Titans five-yard line was all it took to switch the momentum. After this fumble, Kerry Collins and Kenny Britt developed a connection that could not be stopped as the Titans went on to take the lead and break the game open.

I said earlier in the week that if you looked at Chris Johnson’s stat line after the game, it would probably have a huge reflection on the outcome of the game. I couldn’t have been more wrong.

The Eagles did exactly what they needed to against Johnson but fell apart in all other areas.

The Eagles will have plenty of time to dwell on the loss as they head to the bye week. It’s going to be a tough second half of the schedule and there are plenty of question marks surrounding this team. The quarterback position is just one of them. Will the Eagles stick with Kolb after the loss or move back to Michael Vick? Only time will tell.

Note: Andy Reid has said that Michael Vick will start for the Eagles after the bye week.
