4th & 26

Hey guys, this is Hal from Team Swagbucks, and since I’m the resident Philadelphia I asked TSG if I could write the NFL Highlight post in honor of the Eagles playing the Packers (and since it’s my birthday).

Coincidentally, the highlight that sprang to mind almost immediately was from the last time the Packers faced the Eagles in the postseason. The Eagles were behind 14-17 to a good Packers team led by Brett Favre. With 1:12 left on the clock, the Eagles faced an impossible 4th and 26 situation. As we’ve learned with the Eagles, never say never. The Giants learned that lesson for the second time this season when DeSean Jackson returned Matt Dodge’s line drive punt for a score as time expired. In this case it was Donovan McNabb threading the needle to a streaking Freddie Mitchell. Freddie didn’t have a long career, but after catching this pass I don’t think he’d have to pay for many meals in Center City.

Without any further ado, I present to you… 4th and 26!

Fly Eagles Fly!
