Eagles' offense struggles all over in 1st half

This was not what you would expect from such a fast-paced offense as the Philadelphia Eagles.

The Eagles ran only 16 plays for 21 yards in the first 30 minutes in the first half against the Dallas Cowboys.

The Elias Sports Bureau notes that it was their fewest in a first half since 1994 when they had 21 yards against the Cardinals.

The Eagles have been shut out five times in the first half under Chip Kelly. Only the Titans have been shut out in the first half more over the last three seasons.

DeMarco Murray had five rushes for one yard. He has 10 rushing yards through the first six quarters of the the season. Last season, he had 39 rushes for 233 yards in his first six quarters.

Sam Bradford's longest first-half completion traveled one yard past the line of scrimmage.

The potentially good news for the Eagles: They rank third in the NFL in second-half points over the last three games, trailing only the Broncos and the Patriots.

However, the Cowboys rank fourth.
