Halftime Score: Redskins 10, Eagles 7
LANDOVER, Md. -- Donovan McNabb, repeat after us: "You are not Dan Marino. Spike the ball."
This after Trent Cole took a sure three points off the board for the Redskins with a forced fumble sack. McNabb did a great job moving the Eagles into sure-fire field goal range for David Akers, but the quarterback for the second time in three weeks made a fatal error with clock management.
He pretended to spike to the ball as the clock would down ... 10, 9, 8 ... but it looked like his teammates had no clue he was trying to pull a fast one by the Skins, and the Redskins sacked a virtually defenseless McNabb.
And once again, the clock ticked down as McNabb tried to kill the clock with time left for a field goal attempt. It's going to be interesting to hear Andy Reid put the blame on himself for that snafu at tomorrow's day-after press conference.
