The AP is reporting that Donovan McNabb was so ill during the 4th quarter that he had trouble calling plays, battled puking in the huddle, and was "exhausted from giving it his all." A spokesman for the Eagles said Tuesday he didn't know what was wrong with McNabb.
This is the first I'm hearing of McNabb being sick, but I remember thinking he looked a little woozy after Richard Seymour knocked him hard to the ground early in the second half (which I'm guessing isn't that uncommon a reaction to having some 300 lb. defensive end give you the business).
Just in case Sunday night did not make it clear, defense rules the NFL in 2016. The best teams in overall DVOA all combine top-five defenses with below-average offenses. The Eagles now lead the league in both defense and special teams and are back to No. 1 overall.
