The Dawk Never Dies
Only moments after ABC’s Al Michaels tells viewers that the Eagles’ Brian Dawkins is still in the locker room being treated for dehydration, the All-Pro safety comes back on the field and thwarts a threatening Falcons’ drive.
First, Dawkins breaks up a pass in the end zone, then his sack of Falcons quarterback Michael Vick causes a fumble.
His in-game numbers: 6 tackles, 2 sacks, 1 forced fumble and 1 interception.
The Eagles, still trailing 14-7, face a crucial third and long with 9:31 to go in the game.
