The defending champion Philadelphia Eagles found themselves in an unenviable position coming out of their Week 9 bye. At 4-4 on the season, Philadelphia is battling for second place in the NFC East with the Dallas Cowboys.
The first half of Sunday night’s game didn’t go swimmingly for the Eagles. They found themselves down 13-3 at the half with the team giving up 218 total yards of offense.
Fans in Philadelphia couldn’t case less if this team is defending champs. They were not about to let Doug Pederson and Co. off the hook.
The defending Super Bowl champs are getting booed by their own fans as they head to the halftime locker room. Cowboys 13, Eagles 3

On one hand, these Eagles won the Super Bowl mere months ago. Give them a break.
On the other hand, fans in Philadelphia paid a pretty penny to brave the freezing weather. They’re now one half away from falling behind Dallas in the NFC East standings.
Do you, Philadelphia.
