Halftime score: Cowboys 27, Eagles 3

This may be the worst half the Eagles have ever played under head coach Andy Reid. The defense has done nothing right. The line has put zero pressure on Cowboys quarterback Drew Bledsoe. The linebackers have been unable to seal the outside against the run. The cornerbacks have missed tackles and missed receivers. And Bledsoe, meanwhile, looks Donovan McNabb-like. His numbers: 19 of 26 passing, 241 yards and 3 TDs.
Speaking of McNabb … are his injuries finally starting to that their toll? He’s been off-target and off his game in all facets. The late second quarter sack he took was the sort of poor decision you see a rookie make. He had plenty of time to just throw the ball away, thus avoiding the sack. His numbers: 9 of 17, 98 yards, 0 TDs.
Eagles wide receiver Terrell Owens has been conspicuously silent, but mostly because McNabb has been wild with his passes.
We may be going out on a limb here, but the Eagles don’t look as though they’ll be making any kind of second half comeback. Just call it a hunch.
