SI's 10 Greatest NFL Plays of The Last 10 Years

Sports Illustrated's list of the "Ten Greatest NFL Plays of The Last 10 Years" includes one Eagles play. It should be fairly obvious to any Eagles fan...

#8 - 4th & 26

With time running out in the NFC divisional playoffs, the Eagles were trailing the Packers 17-14 and faced a fourth-and-26 on their own 25. Philadelphia quarterback Donovan McNabb completed a 28-yard pass to Freddie Mitchell to keep the drive alive. Eagles kicker David Akers tied the game in regulation and hit the game-winner in overtime. Philly advanced to the NFC Championship Game, which it lost to Carolina.

No doubt one of the most unlikely and incredible moments in playoff history. Thanks Freddie, when you're substitute teaching a history class tell em about 4th & 26.

The #1 play was the Titans falling a yard short of winning superbowl XXXIV.
