It's been quite the opposite effort in the second half, with Seattle controlling possession and chances.

Christopher A. Vito

Seattle equalizes on Chad Barrett's goal in the box in the 48th.

Christopher A. Vito

Union's Maurice Edu appeared to have gotten away with a handball violation.

Christopher A. Vito

Fun fact: Seattle, in its 24-game US Open Cup history, has NEVER trailed at halftime. (Union lead, 1-0, at the break.)

Christopher A. Vito

This one is far from over, and the Union know it. They're scrapping for another goal prior to halftime. One minute of stoppage time.

Christopher A. Vito

PPL Park is kind of loud tonight.

Christopher A. Vito

That set piece is what good teams pull off. You know, the kind that win cups.

Christopher A. Vito

All Maurice Edu had to do was put some piece of his forehead on the ball. That's how good that free kick from Maidana was.

Christopher A. Vito

What a ball played into the box by Maidana. Union 1-0 in the 38th.

Christopher A. Vito

The first half is 35 minutes old, and the Union are outpacing Seattle in chances.

Christopher A. Vito

Seattle coach Sigi Schmid is wearing an unfashionable sweater vest. (Just felt like pointing that out.)

Christopher A. Vito

Sebastien Le Toux, if not for Seattle GK Stefan Frei getting his right leg on it, would have given the Union a 1-0 lead right there.

Christopher A. Vito

The Union nearly had one.

Christopher A. Vito

Cristian Maidana lays it off for Sebastien Le Toux, whose innocent cross turns into something dangerous. Still scoreless in the 22nd, though

Christopher A. Vito

The Union get their first good chance on goal, with Andrew Wenger unable to convert in the 18th minute. Still scoreless.

Christopher A. Vito

Seattle with the first good look on goal for either team. Clint Dempsey nearly slots in a skip pass on the 6-yard line in the 11th minute

Christopher A. Vito

Quite a few empty seats, too. Yeesh.

Christopher A. Vito

On-field fireworks as the teams take the pitch. Quite the pageantry.

Christopher A. Vito

Solid long-form writing by @DaveZeitlin on the team the Union honor on their uniforms tonight & throughout #USOC2014. mlssoccer.com/news/article/2…

Christopher A. Vito

Union fans really need to read @sportsdoctormd -- one of the most-thorough, hardest-working reporters I've known. (OK, shameless plug over.)

Christopher A. Vito

A cheer goes up at PPL Park, as the Union take the pitch for warmups.

Christopher A. Vito

Seattle starts Clint Dempsey, so that's awesome. Last time he was in this building, it was for a friendly v Colombia. philadelphiaunion.com/news/2010/10/u…

Christopher A. Vito

So ... @amobisays coming off the bench in the Open Cup final? I don't know how I feel about that.

Christopher A. Vito

Union's XI v SEA in the #USOC14 Final: MacMath; Gaddis, Valdes, White, Williams; Edu, Nogueira, Maidana, Le Toux; Wenger, Casey.

Derek Bodner

Also, I loved this Manning face from Luck last night: i.imgur.com/BPwsCZv.gif

Derek Bodner

He was in that vast area between last year (terrific) and last week (horrid). Hopefully he gets his groove back. Long season. 2-0.

Derek Bodner

IMO Foles played average to slightly below average. Missed some throws, missed some open guys, but nowhere near to extent of Jags game.

John Gonzalez

Eagles coverage continues with Eagles End Game coming up right after Postgame Live #EaglesTalk

Derek Bodner

Foles is going to end the game with his second straight 300 yard game to start the season. And neither will have been well played.

Derek Bodner

It’s a good thing we brought out screen game today.

Derek Bodner

The refs are horrible at this horse collar rule.

John Gonzalez

Behold, the Casey Matthews face plant RT @dhm: @John Gonzalez Only because you asked nicely. gph.to/1uEDjA2

Derek Bodner

The receiver falling down helped too. Man, one broken tackle away from being a tie game.

Derek Bodner

PRESSURE. THEY GOT PRESSURE ON ANDREW LUCK.

John Gonzalez

Someone (@dhm) please GIF that play where Casey Matthews got juked and fell down

John R. Finger

a 7-game suspension in MLB is no joke.

I thought the Colts O-Line could be exploited?

Derek Bodner

ya win some, ya lose some RT @Derek Bodner: Eagles will take lead before 4th quarter starts

Derek Bodner

Eagles will take lead before 4th quarter starts (Kind of tweet you ignore if doesn’t come true but bump if does)

Derek Bodner

The thing I love about QB evaluations is everybody takes eery play/quarter/game as confirmation of their belief.

Derek Bodner

On 3rd and 15, I would have told you a handoff to McCoy was the best option before the play. And I’m almost serious.

Derek Bodner

My gameplan: Run towards Jason Peters and throw towards Zach Ertz.

Derek Bodner

HOLY CRAP HE HELD ONTO IT.

Derek Bodner

Oh come on. Gotta make that INT. Somebody.Make.A.Play.

John Gonzalez

Eagles defense not…what's the word?…defending?

John Gonzalez

Trent Richardson has 65 rushing yards. That's the most in a single game for him since his rookie season #EaglesTalk

Derek Bodner

Add "unbalanced line" to "Luck's hard count" in the list of things I'm sick of hearing on this broadcast.

Derek Bodner

You're assuming a catch, I presume? Risky. RT @BrandonGowton: Foles had Cooper for a first down there.

Derek Bodner

Jordan Matthews dropped pass. I've seen that far more through 6+ quarters than I expected.

John Gonzalez

Last week Chip Kelly said they didn't throw any chairs at halftime. Maybe toss the orange slices on the floor tonight.

John Gonzalez

Julius Thomas killed the Colts last week. Eagles have thrown to Zach Ertz just twice tonight…both on the opening drive. #Eaglestalk

Derek Bodner

The Good: Chip Kelly seems to make good halftime adjustments. The Bad: I wish they didn't have to always adjust so much at halftime.

Derek Bodner

Seriously? He pretty much dropped it right in there. RT @Dcorrigan50: That INT is all on Nick Foles.

Derek Bodner

Like, I wouldn’t even call that a bad throw. It could have been a step further, sure, but that was a hell of a play.

Derek Bodner

That is one of the best interceptions on a go route I’ve seen.

Derek Bodner

Oh man, Matthews is lucky he got out of bounds. I thought he was going to get stuck in bounds fighting for yards.

Derek Bodner

6.6 yards per play. 6 points. Down 11.

Derek Bodner

I feel like we’re missing an opportunity here with Luck struggling so much.

Derek Bodner

If somebody could remind them that this is TRENT RICHARDSON, it would be much appreciated. Trent. Richardson.

Derek Bodner

I would have taken the under on yards RT @RoobCSN: Eagles have run 10 plays in the red zone, netting 10 yards.

Derek Bodner

I hate Joe West and MLB for putting me in the position of defending Papelbon. But that whole thing was a bit ridiculous.

Derek Bodner

Short yardage Darren Sproles.

Derek Bodner

If you had Trent Richardson gashing the defense and Andrew Luck struggling, well, you’re full of it.

Dan Gelston

#Phillies apologize for Papelbon. http://t.co/f1blvcTgWn

John Gonzalez

Alex Henery off somewhere sticking pins into his Cody Parkey voodoo doll

John Gonzalez

Darren Sproles is almost as fast as Nick Foles

Derek Bodner

3.6 yards per rush is considered a good year now?

John Gonzalez

Challenge accepted RT @BobbyBigWheel: Zach Ertz is one of the few Eagles whose name can't be ruined by a Philly accent

I didn't even know what a "switch" was before this week. And I'm thankful for that.

John Gonzalez

Eagles-Colts, our staff predictions csnphilly.com/football-phila… Not a lot of optimism about tonight's outcome #Eaglestalk

Derek Bodner

"Nice look, tough catch". Doesn't one generally discount the other? KYP.
