Eagles Vs Dolphins: A.J. Feeley's Revenge

The Eagles and Dolphins may been playing in the NFL for more than 100 years combined, but this Sunday will mark just the 13th time they will have met. The Eagles are 5-7 all time against the Fins and are just 1-5 in Miami. They've never played the team with Tony Sparano in charge.

The last time the Eagles did actually play the Dolphins, it was actually a pretty game. Let's take you back to November 18th, 2007....

The Dolphins got out to a quick 7-0 and had intercepted Donovan McNabb twice. Then they knocked him out of the game in the second quarter with a sprained ankle. Things did not look good for the Birds... But all was not lost. None other than A.J. Feeley, then in his second stint with the Eagles, was called on to relieve McNabb. He proceeded to throw a pick on his first drive.

Feeley was of course the principle in one of the great trade robberies the Eagles have ever pulled off. The Eagles took him with a 5th round pick in 2001 and after a few decent performances in relief on McNabb in 2002, Feeley was traded to the Dolphins for a second round pick. He ended up as a total bust there and didn't even last a full season as a starter. He eventually made his way back to Philadelphia, where he got a chance to get some revenge on the Dolphins.

After throwing that first pick, Feeley rebounded and ended up going 13-19 for 116 yards and a TD as the Eagles came back for a 17-7 win. Although perhaps the most amazing thing about that game was that Andy Reid, with his backup QB in the game, decide to... wait for it.... rely on his running game. Brian Westbrook had a career high 32 carries that day.
