The Philadelphia Eagles take a 10-3 lead into half time of their match against the injury-hit Green Bay Packers.

The Philadelphia Eagles have taken a 10-3 lead into the half-time break of their match against the Green Bay Packers this afternoon.

The visitors took the lead in the first quarter when Nick Foles kept up his impressive recent form by throwing a long pass down the middle of the field for DeSean Jackson.

The receiver juggled the ball before catching it at the second time of asking under pressure from two defenders to complete a 55-yard score.

The Packers, without usual quarterback Aaron Rodgers, struggled to create anything on offense with back-up Seneca Wallace being replaced by Scott Tolzien during the first quarter.

The Eagles extended their lead just before half time when Alex Henery kicked a field goal from 25 yards, but Mason Crosby got his side on the board with just five seconds remaining with a kick of his own to restore the deficit to seven.

Should the result stay the same, then the Eagles would move to 5-5 for the season while the Packers would drop to 5-4.
