In a somewhat shocking turn of events (to me at least), you faithful readers selected the Eagles’ 2004 Week 15 win over the Packers for this week’s quarantine watch party, which is celebrating Donovan McNabb’s time as an Eagle.
Here’s what I wrote about the game earlier in the week:
2004 Week 15 against the Packers
Throwing for 464 passing yards and five touchdowns (one of only two times he did it in career), McNabb was at the peak of his dominance, as the Birds took down the Packers 47-14. Brian Westbrook illustrated why he was one of the greatest multi-faceted weapons of his generation too, as he totaled 137 receiving yards (plus 37 yards on the ground) and three touchdown receptions.
I have a feeling we’re going to see multiple 100-yard receiving games from Miles Sanders this season (if there is a season). I’m getting those Westbrook vibes from him right now.
Against a Packers team that made the playoffs, both Darin Walker and Corey Simon sacked Brett Favre twice. Brian Dawkins and Sheldon Brown each added interceptions for good measure too. This was just a complete throttling from one of the greatest Eagles teams ever.
On Friday August 14 at 7:00 p.m. EST, we’ll be watching maybe the pinnacle of Donovan McNabb’s career in midnight green. As a reminder, we’re going to be using the Watch2Gether site so that we can all simultaneously view the game while having a running text chat.
Simply use the link [here] to join our watch room. Same as last time, feel free to hop in around 6:30 p.m. so we can shoot the breeze before promptly kicking things off at 7:00 p.m.
We’ll be using the #2004McNabb hashtag on social media so we can all follow along together too
