Eagles-Patriots: Philly Almost Ambushes New England

New England Shows They're Vulnerable, But That's All..

The Philadelphia Eagles almost pulled off the upset of the year in the NFL last night.

The Eagles were ahead of the Patriots 28-24 midway through the fourth quarter when Laurence Maroney scored on a four-yard dive to give the Pats a 31-28 lead.

Eagles backup QB A.J. Feeley, who had an impressive game in Donovan McNabb's absence, was intercepted in the end zone by Asante Samuel with just under four minutes remaining to seal the game for New England.

The Pats are now 11-0, and have scored at least 30 or more points in every game this season except one—their 24-20 comeback victory at Indianapolis on Nov. 4th.

The Pats have five games remaining: next Sunday night in Baltimore, then three straight home games vs. the Steelers, Jets, and Dolphins before they play the Giants in New Jersey on the final Saturday of the season.
