RUSHING OFFENSE: Bryce Brown, who was held to 6 yards on 12 carries by Tampa Bay, had another rough night. He had just 22 yards on 11 carries in the first half with his longest run 6 yards. Late in the third quarter, he lost his fourth fumble of the season, setting up a Cincinnati touchdown.
PASSING OFFENSE: Riley Cooper caught his third red-zone touchdown of the season in the second quarter. It was set up by a 32-yard Nick Foles pass to Jeremy Maclin. Maclin, who had nine catches for 104 yards and a touchdown against the Bucs, had three catches for 56 yards in the first half Thursday. Foles' interceptionless streak came to an end in the third quarter when Leon Hall picked off an underthrown ball for Maclin.
RUN DEFENSE: The Eagles got gashed for a 29-yard run by BenJarvus Green-Ellis on the Bengals' first offensive play, but then settled down somewhat. Gave up 21 rushing yards to quarterback Andy Dalton, including 10 on a third-quarter touchdown scramble in which he faked rookie linebacker Mychal Kendricks out of his jock.
PASS DEFENSE: The pass rush you've been waiting all season to see finally made an appearance Thursday night. Led by Brandon Graham, the Eagles sacked Andy Dalton four times in the first half, two of which resulted in forced fumbles that set up Eagles scores. Dalton completed just nine of 20 passes for 87 yards in the first three quarters.
SPECIAL TEAMS: Mat McBriar had a punt blocked in the first quarter when rookie Marvin McNutt got pushed right into the Eagles punter by the Bengals' Daniel Herron. The block set up a Josh Brown field goal that gave the Bengals an early 10-point lead. Cedric Thornton fumbled away a kickoff return in the fourth quarter.
OVERALL: The Eagles, who came into the game with the second most giveaways in the league, added a season-high five more as they blew a three-point halftime lead and suffered their sixth double-digit loss of the season.
