    This game was full of big plays. To start the game d. jackson had 98 yard td pass on third and long(think he broke 7 takles on his way to the endzone). Miami came right back to put up 7 of there own with J. Nelson td catch. The eagle got the ball and marched right down the field but was sstop by the steller miami defense at the 32 yard the line and had to kick a 49 yard fg which was good to take a 10-7 lead at the end of one.

    When Miami got the ball back in the 2nd quarter they moved it right down philys throught till they got into the red zone, where they decided to run a play action fake but the eagles didnt fall for it and sacked mallett while causeing the fummble. M. Patterson picked it up and ran 85 yards for his carrear td. Miami once again moved the ball down the field but this time R. Bush ran it for his first td of the year. Once the eagles got the ball back it didnt take much time for them to score(45 sec), with a 71 yard run by L. McCoy. Mallett ran a great two minute offense and scored with 8 sec left in the half but there was still more scoring. The last play of the half vick was sacked in the endzone to make it a 24-23 lead by the eagles.

    The third quarter was a bit calmer with only too scores J Nelson had his 2nd td of the day and miami went for two which was good. Also the eagles drove down the field and b. celek had a td grab to make it 31-31 at the end of 3.

    In the fourth is when it got a bit hairy. Early in the 4th d. Thomas had a td run to take the lead. It was looking good for miami till 2:17 left in the game when mallet decided to throw a pic 6 to J. Jarrett( anoher big play by the eagles). Mallett was thinking no big deal ill just move the ball down the field to set up a game winning field goel, but wait that didnt happen cuz he threw another pic to J. Jarrett. This time the defense held them to a fg with 2 min left in the game. It was time for mallett 2 min drill once again but it only took 56 sec to score, a 56 yard td catch by J brooks(2nd of the day). When the eagle got the ball back they drove down the field like a hot knife threw butter. It wasnt looking good for miami untill L. McCoy didnt run out of bounds at the 3 yard line to set up a final play, but instead cut up the field to be tackled at the 1 yard where the clock struck 0 and Miami won 45-41
