YES THEY DID! The Birds beat the Vikings 26-14 in Minnesota tonight. It was in typically brutal Eagles fashion. They couldn’t get in the end zone for much of the game relying instead on SUPERSTAR KICKER David Akers monster leg for four field goals.
Brian Westbrook eventually broke a 70 some yard screen pass free for the Birds only OFFENSIVE touchdown of the game. That’s right- the KICKER put more points on the board than the QUARTERBACK did. Donovan McNabb to his credit didn’t collapse and turned in a decent performance, but for my money he is no superstar.
Once again the defense played out of it mind especially Brian Dawkins who has really stepped up late in the season. Some of his hits remind me of Andre Waters. BONE CRUSHING. The defense rung up one touchdown when Asante Samuel intercepted a pass and ran it back. Next week- the stinking NY GIANTS!
Should be interesting. I predict a Birds win. E-A-G-L-E-S!
