The Eagles snapped both their surprise losing street and Detroit's suprise winning streak tonight, in an offensive supernova that included 42 points in the first half, a franchise record. Donovan McNabb eventually threw 21-for-26 to finish with 381 yards and 4 TDs, giving the beleaguered Eagles their first victory this season, 56-21.
Detroit, meanwhile, had came off an unexpected 2-0 start, and hoped to win its first three for the first time since 1980. The Eagles offense wound up with eight TDs, while their defense sacked Jon Kitna nine times. "We can't overreact to it," Rod Marinelli said. "We just move forward."
