WOW. At halftime yesterday, I was sure that the Eagles were going to lose that game. They flat out could not stop the Giants in the first half. Actually according to JimmyK over at Bleeding Green Nation the Eagles allowed the following 3rd down conversions yesterday.
The loss of standout rookie, Nate Allen, to a torn patellar tendon is not going to help things either. Fellow rookie Kurt Coleman is going to have to step up a lot for the Eagles in Allen's absence. Third down defense is their most glaring problem now but the Eagles are only one win away from clinching the NFC East. They can actually earn a bye week if they can pick up a game on the Bears over the remainder of the season.

Despite looking terrible at points yesterday it was probably the most enjoyable game I've ever watched. This was an absolute roller coaster ride and I think we should probably savor it. Here are the highlights from yesterday.
