Eagles vs. Rams Halftime Score: Dream Team Wide Awake Through Half

The dream started off a little slow for the Philadelphia Eagles against the St. Louis Rams through the first half today. The Rams scored first to make it a 7-0 game and send some premature shock through Philly. Michael Vick then led his team to 17 unanswered points to break at the half leading the Rams 17-10.

Philadelphia’s trio of dream team cornerbacks performed as expected, shutting down the Rams receivers, with a little help from the Rams receivers themselves who dropped a couple of key passes that might have evened things up for them.

The real story of the Eagles’ defense is their ability to put pressure on Sam Bradford, including forcing a fumble that Juqua Parker returned for an easy touchdown. Rams right tackle Jason Smith, the second-overall pick in 2009, continues to struggle. Sam Bradford struggled in the chaos around him.

Steven Jackson’s 47-yard touchdown run provided the lone highlight for the Rams offense so far. It was a particularly costly highlight, as Jackson strained his quad and left the game on his next attempt. Jackson’s status for the rest of the game is questionable.

To make a game of it, Sam Bradford needs to settle his offense and drive down the field. If the second-year quarterback cannot lead his team to a few more points, the Eagles could really open things up and put the game away in a hurry.
