The Eagles had just taken a huge step forward in the playoffs by beating the Broncos in a shootout.
But they were outplayed by the Denver Broncos on Thursday night, giving the Denver offense plenty of time to take over the game.
The Eagles got off to a slow start, but they never stopped shooting the ball and were on their way to a 17-10 lead when the Eagles scored six unanswered points in the second quarter.
After a pair of touchdown passes from rookie wideout Jordan Matthews to wide receiver Jordan Matthews and wide receiver Ryan Matthews, the Eagles led 31-14 heading into halftime.
But the Broncos answered with a 37-yard field goal by receiver Ryan Switzer with 4:45 left in the half.
The next play was a 20-yard touchdown pass from Matthews to Jordan Matthews.
That set up an Eagles touchdown that put them up 34-30 with 3:36 left in regulation.
The Broncos didn’t give up again until the third quarter, when they ran out the clock on a 2-yard TD run by Matthews and another from Jordan Matthews with 5:35 left in overtime.
The win gave the Eagles their first win over the Broncos since 2008.
