leave a comment »

The Philadelphia Eagles, who are coached by Glendale Community College alumnus Andy Reid, fell to 5-4 on the season with a 31-23 loss to the San Diego Chargers in San Diego.

Philadelphia outscored San Diego, 14-3, in the fourth quarter, but couldn’t make up for a first half in which it fell behind, 14-0, in the first 19 minutes and was shut out of the end zone, settling for a pair of David Akers field goals for a 14-6 halftime deficit.

Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb, who completed 35 of 55 pass attempts for 450 yards, hit a wide-open Jeremy Maclin for a five-yard touchdown with 14:12 to play in the fourth quarter before connecting with Brent Celek for a six-yard touchdown with 7:12 in the game to bring Philadelphia within 28-23. But Nate Kaeding hit a 29-yard field goal for San Diego with 30 seconds left to help seal the win.
