Philadelphia was shut down on three plays after the kickoff, and the Patriots quickly tacked on a 22-yard Adam Vinatieri field goal to stretch the lead to ten, but the Eagles werent ready to roll over.
On the next drive, Westbrook picked up two yards on first down, and McNabb hit Owens for 36 yards to move into Patriots territory. But on the next play, he was intercepted by linebacker Teddy Bruschi at the 24. However, New England failed to move the ball and was quickly forced to punt the ball back.
With less than six minutes remaining and down by ten points, the Eagles seemed to lack a sense of urgency, but they managed to keep their hopes alive when McNabb found Greg Lewis for a 30-yard strike at the two-minute warning.
An onside kick attempt failed, but the Eagles defense rose to the occasion, stopping the Patriots and getting the ball back on a punt with 46 seconds remaining. Unfortunately, Philadelphia was backed up to their own four-yard line, and the desperation of the situation set up Harrisons game-clinching interception.
Brady, who was named MVP of the Patriots last two Super Bowl championships, did a nice job handling Philadelphias blitz most of the game. He put up respectable numbers, completing 23-of-33 passes for 236 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions. His only real mistake was the early fumble.
McNabb threw for 357 yards and three touchdowns, but he was also picked off three times.
