Miracle in the Meadowlands: Eagles shock Giants

This was a day to remember, Birds fans. Against all odds, Michael Vick brought a dormant Eagles offense to life just in time to erase a 21 point lead late in the 4th quarter. Then, against all odds, DeSean Jackson pulled off the most improbable finish to a game I have ever seen:

What an incredible, incredible win. Sure, there were plenty of mistakes along the way, especially by Andy Reid, but its not an exaggeration to call that one of the best Eagles wins of all time. After all, how often do you see a team score 28 points in the final 7 minutes to pull of a comeback win with their division basically on the line?

With the win, the Eagles have moved one step closer to clinching the NFC East, now needing just one more win or a Giants loss to secure the division. Given how this team has shown the ability to never be out of a game, I'd say we are in for something special come January.

Never claimed we have class. Other than doing a touchdown dance on the Dallas star, nothing pleases an Eagles fan more than a 4th quarter comeback against the Giants where their pathetic fans go home and cry.
