How fitting was it that on the night they honored Buddy Ryan, the Eagles' defense scored a touchdown.
In his five seasons as head coach here, his defense hit paydirt nine times. Ten if you include defensive end Clyde Simmons' overtime return of an Eagles' missed field goal attempt against the Giants.
Those 10 TDs:
|Sept. 13, 1987||Fumble||Reggie White||at Redskins||70|
|Sept. 20, 1987||Fumble||Seth Joyner||Saints||18|
|Nov. 20, 1988||Own Blocked FG||Clyde Simmons||at Giants||15|
|Sept. 10, 1989||Interception||Eric Everett||Seahawks||30|
|Dec. 3, 1989
|Nov. 12, 1990
|Nov. 25, 1990||Interception||Byron Evans||Giants||23|
|Dec. 23, 1990||Interception||Eric Allen||Cowboys||35|
