    Quarter 1

    There were rumors this off-season about the Philadelphia Eagles possibly trying to deal running back Lasean McCoy. McCoy, however; remained in Philly and wouldn't have to wait long today to show what he means to this organization. Unfortunately for McCoy, he opened the first series with a fumble which led to the only three points of the first quarter. Rookie Brandon Weeden took the Brownies into the second quarter with a 3-0 lead.

    Quarter 2

    Driving his team down the field early in the second quarter, Brandon Weeden made his first rookie mistake. Weeden threw what looked to have been an out route or possibly a corner. However Eagles corner back Joselio Hanson had other ideas. Hanson picked the pass and ran 81 yards in the opposite direction for the touchdown. The Browns would get possession back. But the Eagles D held them to a quick 3 and out. On the ensuing punt, Desean Jackson make a couple men miss and got a couple great blocks and ended up 55 yards down the field back in the end zone for the Eagles. The Browns offense would come back onto the field. But Weeden made another game changing mistake and threw his 2nd pick six, when DRC under cut another route. The Eagles would add another field goal which made it 24 unanswered points. As the Eagles took the lead into the half at 24-3.

    Quarter 3

    Another uneventful quarter, as neither team succeeded in reaching the end zone. The Browns, however; were able to put up 3 points. 24-6 Eagles after three.

    Quarter 4

    Brandon Weeden did have a nice looking touchdown to Hakeem Nicks that went for 38 yards. Nicks jumped up and over Namdi at the goal line and made a nice move to get into the end zone. They failed to score after that though, so the Final score from Cleveland is 34-13 Eagles.

    Players of the Game:

    PHI - Joselio Hanson- 6 Solo Tackels, 1 INT, 1 TD

    CLEVE- Hakeem Nicks - 3 Catches, 73 yards, 1 TD
