Eagles Pull Out Another Close One, Start Season 2-0
The script had a vastly different feel, but the key plot points were the same.
The Eagles overcame four turnovers and, facing a late six-point deficit, Michael Vick orchestrated a long touchdown drive to grab a one-point win over an AFC North foe.
This time, it was the Baltimore Ravens, a Super Bowl contender, rather than the hapless Cleveland Browns, on the other sideline. After two weeks, the Eagles are 2-0 by the narrowest of margins, and Vick is 10-of-15 for 125 yards and a touchdown with four rushes for 20 yards, a touchdown and a fumble on his two game-winning drives.
This week’s drive went 80 yards on 10 plays, last week’s went 19 yards on 16 plays.
