On Monday night the bright lights of the NFL were focused on the Philadelphia Eagles' critical divisional game against the New York Giants. But halftime belonged to two greats from eras past, as running back Brian Westbrook and linebacker Maxie Baughan were inducted into the Eagles Hall of Fame at halftime.

Westbrook was drafted in the third round of the 2002 NFL Draft out of Villanova. Westbrook finished his eight-year career in Philadelphia fourth in franchise history in rushing attempts (1,308), and rushing yards (5,995), as well as fourth in rushing touchdowns (37). A multi-dimensional threat, Westbrook's 426 receptions rank third in franchise history, and his 3,790 career receiving yards rank him 13th in team history.

Westbrook has created some of the biggest plays in franchise history, from game-winning punt returns to incredible ankle-breaking runs. His best year came in 2007, when he led the league in yards from scrimmage with 2,104. Though the team went 8-8, Westbrook was in the MVP discussion that season.

Baughan was drafted by the Eagles in the 1960 NFL Draft, and immediately made his presence felt. He made the Pro Bowl in his rookie year, and would earn the honor five times in his six-year stint in Philadelphia. Baughan was a starter on the Eagles' 1960 NFL Championship game, the last time the Eagles won it all.
