The Eagles have finally won a close and came back after trailing at the end of the third quarter.
“We haven’t had a lot of luck in close ones,” coach Andy Reid said. “This time, the guys battled through and didn’t worry about all that. They just kept banging. I was proud of them for that. The coaches kept pushing.”
Asked about the potential impact of this type of win, Reid said, "That can’t hurt us. That’s a plus. We’ve got a lot of football ahead of us and have a pretty good team coming in next week.”
On Donovan McNabb's effort in the fourth quarter, Reid said: "You’re talking about a Hall of Fame player. He kept everyone positive and upbeat in the huddle and good things happen for him … He didn’t hang his head and kept everyone going. Kept telling them good things were going to happen and kept everyone punching.”
