Any team that can hold Peyton Manning to an overall 65.7 QB rating and forcing two interceptions, you know you are doing something right.
The Eagles pass defense has not looked this good all season, and this performance could have not come at a better time considering they were playing the pass-heavy Colts. Manning had trouble finding open receivers all game and was thrown on the ground three times.
Manning was under pressure regularly and it showed, as it led to several Colts' three-and-outs. I would venture to say that Manning has not had this much trouble all season, finishing the game with 294 yards and one touchdown.
Considering the Eagles came off of a horrendous passing defensive performance against the Titans before the bye week, they had a huge turnaround in this game. Asante Samuel had both interceptions this game and proved why he is worth the money.
Also the absence of Nate Allen was almost not even noticed. Kurt Coleman stepped in and performed like a starter, except for the hit on Collie (that was debatable whether or not the hit was legal).
The only big problem with the Eagles passing defense was the inability to cover Colts tight end Jacob Tamme. Tamme consistently beat his coverage, who was generally lined up with Stewart Bradley, who continues to prove that he is totally ineffective in pass coverage.
Still, a good game and a big step for the Eagles defense.
