Sunday, The Philadelphia Eagles played tough once again, beating the visiting Pittsburgh Steelers by the oddball score of 15-9.
Correll Buckhalter avoids Pittsburgh Steelers#92 James Harrison en route to a 2nd quarter TD on a pass from McNabb. This was the record-setter.
On the first play of the second half, star running back/receiver Brian Westbrook went airborne on a 2-yd-run, but wound up hurting his ankle when his feet got tangled with "O" lineman Tra Thomas on the way back to earth.
With receiver Kevin Curtis out and Greg Lewis back, but not a factor, Hank Baskett had to pick up the slack.
The Eagles defense had 9 sacks on the day and 3 turnovers, too. Here Brian Dawkins, left, recovers a fumble he forced from Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger, right, in the fourth quarter.
If you thought Correll Buckhalter was happy earlier in the game, Brian Dawkins was delerious.
I mentioned nine sacks. I'll save you some time and only show you three. This one resulted in a safety when Big Ben throw the ball into the ground as he was going down.
