Who Can Forget?
The Cowboys trailed the Eagles 20-7 with just five minutes remaining in the fourth quarter last season in a critical Monday Night Football game. But after getting back in the game on a Drew Bledsoe touchdown pass to Terry Glenn, the Cowboys shocked a raucous Lincoln Financial Field crowd when safety Roy Williams picked off a Donovan McNabb pass and raced 46 yards down the sideline for a go-ahead touchdown with just 2:35 to play.
The Eagles tried a desperation 60-yard field goal attempt by David Akers, but the kick sailed way short, giving the Cowboys an improbable, 21-20, comeback win, their first in Philadelphia since the 1998 season.
