Philadelphia Eagles News

Lesson To Be Learned

A year ago, the Eagles were coming off a forgettable three-game stretch that included a pair of losses and a tie. Fortunately, Donovan McNabb rallied the troops and the Eagles rattled off three straight wins to remain very much in the playoff picture.

But after scoring 48, 20 and 30 points in wins over the Cardinals, Giants and Browns, Philadelphia was flat in a 10-3 loss at Washington, a game in which the Eagles called 50 pass plays and 14 running plays.

Who could forget Reggie Brown's 17-yard reception with four seconds left, which came just an inch short of the goal line. And without a timeout to spare, the clock ran out on the Eagles and seemingly their chances to make the playoffs.

Of course, we all remember how the right cards fell around them on the final weekend of the regular season to produce a dream scenario.

Flash forward 11 months and here we are counting down the days to the latest installment of this storied rivalry that dates back to 1934. Click here to read the full story.
