ICYMI: A Hall Of Fame Night To Remember


During halftime of Monday night's win over the New York Giants, linebacker Maxie Baughan and running back Brian Westbrook were inducted into the Philadelphia Eagles Hall of Fame.

The 20th overall selection in the 1960 NFL Draft, Baughan spent his first six seasons in Philadelphia, earning five Pro Bowl nods during that span. As a rookie, he played a key role on the 1960 NFL Championship team, starting in every game and achieving All-Pro and Pro Bowl honors. Baughan was a nine-time Pro Bowl and a four-time All-Pro selection, totaling 18 interceptions and 10 fumble recoveries during his 12-year career with the Eagles, Rams and Redskins.

A multi-threat back armed with exceptional playmaking abilities, Westbrook finished his Eagles career as the franchise's all-time leader in total yards from scrimmage (9,785). During his time in Philadelphia, the two-time Pro Bowl and one-time, first-team AP All-Pro selection helped guide the club to four NFC East crowns, four NFC Championship Game appearances and a berth in Super Bowl XXXIX. Westbrook is widely remembered for his iconic, game-winning 84-yard punt return touchdown at Giants Stadium on October 19, 2003, best known as the "Miracle at the Meadowlands II." Upon his retirement, he became one of only six players in NFL history with at least 30 rushing touchdowns (41) and 30 receiving touchdowns (30) in his career.
