Found this recap looking through old email. I covered the game for a wire service that day and my editor, Anthony Carter (we share a birthday), allowed me to write this longer than usual. As many games as I’ve covered in multiple sports, this is most definitely high at the top. When Weapon X ran and did his thing out the tunnel as Oakland’s victory over Tampa Bay (31-24)  flashed across the big screen (Philly needed Tampa to lose to have a shot at the playoffs) the Linc exploded. Quoted: Brian Dawkins, Brian Westbrook, Donovan McNabb, Terrell Owens, Tony Romo and Andy Reid. The full game is linked following the recap. Enjoy the flashback Eagles fans – Michael Tillery.
