Eagles...40 49ers...26

October 13, 2008|From the Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO -- Donovan McNabb and the Philadelphia defense wouldn't allow a bizarre blocked field goal to ruin an otherwise dominant day.

McNabb passed for 280 yards and two touchdowns without his top two receivers and his best running back, and the Eagles' aggressive defenders forced three turnovers during a 23-point fourth quarter in Philadelphia's 40-26 victory over the San Francisco 49ers.

Donald Strickland returned a blocked field goal 41 yards for a touchdown on the final play of the first half for the 49ers (2-4), bringing them to within 17-16. They led, 26-17, entering the fourth quarter.

David Akers kicked three fourth-quarter field goals for the Eagles (3-3).

Quoteworthy: "They made great plays and turned their season around." -- Frank Gore, 49ers running back, on the Eagles
