Eagles 26, Seahawks 7

November 03, 2008|Associated Press

SEATTLE -- Backup tight ends. Tackle-eligibles. Doesn't matter who Donovan McNabb is throwing to these days. He's connecting with them all.

McNabb rebounded from early problems to complete 28 of 43 passes for 349 yards and two touchdowns, one to tackle Todd Herremans for Philadelphia's first touchdown reception by an interior lineman in 74 years, to rally the Philadelphia Eagles to a 26-7 victory over the swooning Seattle Seahawks.

Brent Celek, playing because L.J. Smith was out with a concussion, set an Eagles record for yards receiving by a tight end in a regular-season game with 131 on six catches.

Philadelphia (5-3) stayed two games behind the New York Giants in the NFC East, and moved ahead of Dallas (5-4) for third in the division.

Seattle, 2-6 for the first time since its last losing season in 2002, lost for the third time in four home games.

Quoteworthy: "We've got things rolling at the right time. We know we're going pretty much into the meat of our schedule." -- Donovan McNabb, Eagles quarterback
