The Jets got the ball first on Sunday, but the first possession set the tone for what was to follow. Two runs went nowhere as the revamped offensive line gained no traction and rookie tight end Trevon Wesco allowed his man to make the stop each time. On third down, stand-in quarterback Luke Falk couldn't even get a throw off as veteran Brian Winters was beaten for a sack.
After the Jets punted, the Eagles marched downfield for a touchdown to take the lead, which they then doubled when Falk threw a pick-six on fourth down on the Jets' next possession. That was asclose as it got all day as the Eagles comfortably swept the injury-plagued Jets aside.
To their credit, the Jets' defense stiffened for most of the rest of the first half, but Falk's second interception set the Eagles up with good field position and they worked the two-minute drill to go up 21-0 with 34 seconds to go in the first half.
