    LONDON - JANUARY 04: A man walks to work in freezing conditions on January 4, 2010 in London, England. Much of the UK is in the grip of freezing weather with snow and ice disrupting transport across the country as people return to work after the Christmas break.

    ​The Eagles offensive line didn't have a fun time early in Sunday's game against the Giants. In fact, they were getting beaten at nearly every turn. Michael Vick was taking hits, LeSean McCoy couldn't find holes. It wasn't pretty.

    Dallas Reynolds and Demetress Bell played especially poorly, but the scariest thing is that they weren't the only culprits. The whole line was getting beat, sometimes one-on-one and other times because of communication breakdowns. Check out a bunch of the plays below:

    Kiwanuka, playing nose guard, manhandles Reynolds while Mathis looks the other way.

    ​McCoy blocks the blitzer, but Watkins doesn't get help from Reynolds on Rocky Bernard.

    ​Reynolds, pulling, whiffs on Chase Blackburn. Bell also can't sustain block on JPP.

    Herremans gets beat inside by Justin Tuck.​

    ​JPP beats Bell around the edge.

    ​Watkins' failed cut block.

    ​Linval Joseph busts by Reynolds.

    Communication issue leaves blitzer unblocked.​
