Eagles win a close one against the Ravens

In what will possibly be the lowest scoring game all season and the only game to almost go into overtime, the Eagles beat the Ravens on Saturday 28-20. While all the pregame hype was about the controversy which landed T.O. in Philadelphia. The game itself showed the defenses and the running games take charge. With only 2 catches T.O. had a disappointing outing. With both QBs unable to control the turnovers (3 INT's for McNabb and 2 INT's for Boller) it proved to be a contest between Jamal Lewis and Brian Westbrook. The Eagles got one of their 2 INTs early in the game however it looked bad for the Eagles when Brian Westbrook went down with an injury in the 2nd offensive series and Mark Simoneau went out with an injury on the 2nd defensive series. Both however were only suffering from leg cramps and were able to come back. A fumble on a kick return late in the first half looked to be what the Eagles would need to break the game open. However, the Raven's D stood up to the test and kept the Eagles from scoring. Late in the 2nd half the Ravens were down 21 - 20 and were mounting a long drive down the field. Jamal Lewis fumbled the ball and Westbrook proved who was better when he scored his 4th rushing TD of the game. The Eagles were celebrating on the sideline until with less than a minute left Boller started to mount a comeback. The Raven's had the ball inside the 10 with 2 seconds left and a chance to tie with a touchdown and 2 pt. conversion. But Boller proved true to form when he threw an incompletion. With a heartbreaking loss the 1-1 Ravens will face the 2-0 Redskins next week. While another close win puts the 2-0 Eagles against the 0-2 Giants.

It's obvious by the way Aaron was talking his junk this weekend(mentioning Master Rico can't be that good) that he expects the G-Men just to lie down on him. Not sure that's going to happen. Prepare for an upset Beagles!
