The Philadelphia Eagles didn’t come to play in the first half of their home season opener today. In fact, the Eagles trailed by 17 points and Nick Foles had three interceptions.

In the second, the young Jacksonville Jaguars struggled to get anything going. On the other hand, Darren Sproles led the Eagles to two third quarter touchdowns. The team scored 20 points in the fourth to make it 34-17.

In the 2010 game, the Eagles trailed 24-3 at halftime. The game was tied at 31-31 when the Giants punted to now former Eagle DeSean Jackson.

Jackson, who did not have a punt return for a touchdown before the play, bobbled the ball at the 35-yard line and then got a block. After that, he ran up the sideline into the end zone with no time left. The Eagles won 38-31.

This play is known as the Miracle in the Meadowlands Pt. 2.
