The Eagles are Soaring!

They barely made the playoffs, and yet the Philidephia Eagles are now only 1 win away from the Super Bowl. Donovan McNabb was solid, as he threw for 217 yards and a touchdown in the 23-11 victory over the Giants. Eli Manning, on the other hand, threw for only 169 yards and didn’t have a single touchdown pass.

It was Philadelphia’s defense, however, that was the difference-maker in this game. For instance, the Eagles first took the lead in the 1st quarter when they were able to score a touchdown after Domenik Hixon intercepted an Eli Manning pass on the NYG 2 yd line. In the 4th quarter, Philadelphia was also able to take advantage of good field position, after their defense did not allow the Giants to get the first down on a 4th and 2 play, which took place on the NYG 47 yd line.

Philadelphia will next face the Arizona Cardinals in the NFC Title Game.
