The Eagles came out on fire this game. They took an early 13-0 lead but fell apart late in the second quarter, giving the Colts a 17-16 halftime lead.

The first half comeback by the Colts was led by a horrible call by the referees. It had a huge play on the momentum of the game.

In the second half, the Eagles started to fight back and keep things close. They scored the first 10 points of the half, but still allowed the Colts to comeback late and allow the game to be closer than it should be. The team would be killed again by their own penalties and terrible calls by the ref.

In the end, the ball was put back in Peyton Manning’s hands but his drive was ended by an Asante Samuel interception.

Andy Reid’s record of being unbeaten after the bye continues, and the Eagles get a much deserved win.

More to come on the game later.
