Eagles Spoil Saints Playoff Hopes in 38-23 Win

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Kevin Curtis (80) recovers a Donovan McNabb fumble in the endzone in the first half against the New Orleans Saints in their NFL football game in New Orleans, Sunday, Dec. 23, 2007. New Orleans Saints safety Roman Harper (41) and Mike McKenzie (34) are behind Curtis.

The Eagles played spoiler Sunday with an impressive 38-23 win over the Saints at the Superdome.  The win all but eliminates New Orleans from the playoffs.  Quarterback Donovan McNabb threw three touchdown passes and ran the ball effectively.  He found seven different receivers, including Kevin Curtis, who had six catches for 78 yards and the game-clinching score.  Curtis also eclipsed the 1,000 yard mark for the first time in his career.  Brian Westbrook had a hundred yards rushing and now needs just two yards to break Wilbert Montgomery’s single-season record for yards from scrimmage.  The defense was solid as well and changed the momentum of the game with a big, goal line stand early in the second half.  At 7-8, the Eagles need to win next Sunday at home against Buffalo to finish the season at .500.
