Donovan McNabb and Brian Westbrook lead Eagles over Cardinals 48-20Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- No division-clinching victory for the Arizona Cardinals. Just a lopsided road defeat to the Philadelphia Eagles.
Donovan McNabb threw four touchdown passes, Brian Westbrook tied a team-record with four scores and the Eagles beat the Cardinals 48-20 last night.
Just four days ago, McNabb was benched for the first time in his career at halftime of a 36-7 loss at Baltimore.
But Reid gave McNabb another chance and the five-time Pro Bowl uarterback responded with his best game since Week 1 by completing 27 of 39 passes for 260 yards.
Westbrook, playing with a sore ankle and knee, had 110 yards rushing and 20 more receiving. He had two TDs on the ground and two receiving.
The Eagles are now 6-5-1 and getting a needed win to maintain their slim playoff hopes.
Arizona is now 7-5 and can still clinch its first division title in 33 years if San Francisco loses at Buffalo on Sunday.
Kurt Warner had 235 yards passing, three TDs and three interceptions as the Cardinals trailed 24-7 at halftime.
Warner's 1-yard scoring pass to Larry Fitzgerald late in the second quarter was his 20th straight game with a TD pass, breaking Neil Lomax's franchise record.
