The Cleveland Browns’ first play of the second half was a 58-yard completion from QB Robert Griffin III to WR Corey Coleman in triple coverage. The drive stalled from there, though, but a 35-yard field goal by K Patrick Murray cut the Eagles’ lead to 13-10.
Cleveland’s defense held the Eagles at midfield, leading to another punt with plenty of time left in the third quarter. Unfortunately, the “high snap” issues from C Cameron Erving reared its ugly head again, as he snapped the ball over Griffin’s head and past the end zone for a touchback/safety. That put the Eagles up 15-10.
Philadelphia then had their best drive of the game since the first of the game. Philadelphia decided to go for it on 4th-and-4 from the 40 yard line and completed a bang-bang pass to move the chains. On the next play, QB Carson Wentz found WR Nelson Agholor for a 35-yard touchdown over CB Joe Haden, giving Philadelphia a 22-10 lead.
A sack — the first of the day for Philadelphia — killed Cleveland’s next drive before it could really get started. The Eagles have the ball as we head to the final quarter of play.
