"PHILADELPHIA - The snap was there, the hold was good and the kick was perfect. David Akers hit a 38-yard field goal with no time remaining to give the Philadelphia Eagles a 23-20 victory over the New York Giants in a wild-card playoff game Sunday.
A day after Dallas lost to Seattle when quarterback Tony Romo fumbled the hold on what could have been a go-ahead field goal, the Eagles executed the seemingly routine play that has cost teams important games in recent weeks."
Re: Dallas Cowboys...Bumin'
Sums it up so far, dontcha think?
Kudos to dolidis for a fine montage!
All in all, the games I saw were pretty sloppy with the winners lucky to be where they are, the Eagles included.
Next stop is the Superdome in New Orleans and the New Orleans Saints. The Eagles "D" is going to have to play their best game of the year if the Eagles hope to advance to the NFC Championship game against the winner of the Seattle - Chicago game.
The Eagles face the Saints on Saturday night, 2000 hours, (8:00 p.m. for you civilian types), on January 13, one day after my birthday!
Couldn't ask for a better present than another Eagles' win!
