    Philly was Oh-So-Close to beating the Pats last night. It was a shame the Eagles lost, but they simply got in too big of a hurry on the last drive and Feeley threw an interception.

    Nevertheless, Philly showed that the Pats are a beatable team with vulnerabilites that can be exploited. I doubt the Pats will continue on undefeated.

    I can't believe that Philly would ever put Donavan McNabb back on the field in an Eagles' uniform after Feeleys' performance last night. Yet, McNabb will probably be back out there this coming Sunday. Philly only wins consistently when McNabb is injured and off the field. It's time to change horses!

    I was kinda hoping that Philly would win. I don't mind if somebody goes undefeated to knock the smug Shula and Co. off their perch, but I'm not sure I want that team to be the Patriots.

    I didn't get a chance to watch the game. What did Philly do that other teams haven't been able to do?

    1. Pressure Brady.
    2. Keep NE from big plays - Moss had under 100 yards.
    3. Ball Control and Scoring - the Eagles were able to score as often as the Pats. In fact, their offense outscored NE's offense, since 7 of NE's points came from an interception return.

    Could New England have gotten too laid back after hearing thatthey were in the play-offs?

    Philly scored. As someone here said, their offense actually outscored NE's.

    Philly used trick plays, most of which payed off. These included an early-game on-side kick (which they recovered) and a flea-flicker.

    Philly has an excellent defense and an excellent defensive coach. It was enough to make NE wish they had a running game.

    Unfortunately, Philly had poor clock management late in the game; a trait that has plagued them in crucial games during the Reid era.

    No doubt the Eagles played a good game and had a chance to beat the Pats.

    However, I think the Pats were probably looking past the Eagles somewhat, and it almost bit them.

    I am not a NE fan, and could really care less if they go undefeated or not. If they do find a way to go undefeated they will look back to this game as a wake-up call.

    Feely's three interceptions were the key to the NE win . Other than that if you look at the stats they were pretty much even all the way around. The Patriots are very deep in talent as they proved with Wes Welker.

    Net Yards Rushing:
    Phila.-55 NE-48

    Net Yards Passing:
    Phila-336 NE 362

    Average yards per Rush:
    Phila-2.9 NE-3.0

    Time of Possesion:
    Phila-27:49 NE-32:11

    Third down efficiancy:
    Phila-8/13 NE-10/16
