Tie rule catches McNabb off-guard

McNabb, who had only five interceptions coming in, went 28-for-58 for 339 yards. He repeatedly missed open receivers in an offense that has come to rely on him almost entirely because it can’t run.

Philadelphia tried to pass on all of its 18 third-down plays, including three third-and-1 plays. The Eagles converted only three of their third-down plays as they got away from their ineffective running game.

“It makes you look at different options,” said Brian Westbrook, who ran for only 60 yards. “Today we tried a couple of different things, and we weren’t successful.”
