TAMPA - First, there was the one-handed, backward, sideline snatch for 20 yards that set up the the Eagles' field goal midway through the second quarter.
Second, there was the 39-yard balletic expression that set up the Eagles' first touchdown later in the same quarter.
Finally, there was the 22-yarder down the middle on fourth-and-5. That will be the one of the seven catches Jason Avant is remembered for in Sunday's 23-21 win.
The play began at the Bucs' 23, the Eagles trailing by five. The Birds needed yards, but they had just 16 seconds.
It took 6 for Avant to cross the middle of the field. He caught the ball, and, to him, more important, he held on to it.
