Bills-Eagles halftime notes
By James Walker
ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- The Buffalo Bills lead the Philadelphia Eagles, 21-7, at intermission.
Here are some notes at halftime:
- Buffalo's defense is very opportunistic. The group got a defensive touchdown for a third consecutive week. Bills linebacker Nick Barnett undercut a crossing route and returned the interception 31-yards for a touchdown in the second quarter to give the Bills a two-touchdown lead. Buffalo has three interceptions in the first half.
- Bills running back Fred Jackson is having another strong start. Jackson rushed for 58 yards and a touchdown in the first half. He also has three receptions for 59 yards. Jackson is the first Bills running back to score a rushing touchdown in four straight games since Willis McGahee in 2005.
- Buffalo safety George Wilson is on a mission. He has eight tackles and an interception. Wilson always seems to find the football. He has an interception in three straight games for Buffalo.
- Buffalo receiver Donald Jones injured his ankle and is out for the game. He had two catches for 25 yards in the first half.
