PHILADELPHIA — Colt Anderson started at free safety for the Philadelphia Eagles Thursday night, and the Butte native was credited with five tackles and a pass break up in the team’s 34-13 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.
The Eagles led 13-10 at halftime before the Bengals rallied, taking advantage of five Philadelphia turnovers.
Anderson was credited with four solo tackles and one assisted tackle. Anderson, who joined the Eagles in November 2010 from the Minnesota Vikings practice squad, started his first game at safety in Sunday’s win at Tampa Bay.
