Jan. 11, 2004: The fourth-and-26 game. Trailing Green Bay by three, Donovan McNabb engineered a game-tying drive that included a 28-yard completion to Freddie Mitchell on a fourth-and-26 and ended when David Akers kicked a 37-yard field goal with 5 seconds left to force overtime. Akers won it with a 31-yarder after Brett Favre threw a horrible interception on the Packers first possession of OT.
Jan. 18, 2004: Donovan McNabb threw three interceptions, all to Carolina's Ricky Manning Jr., before leaving after the third quarter with separated rib cartilage as the Eagles lost their third consecutive NFC Championship Game, 14-3.

Dec. 5, 2004: Donovan McNabb threw for 464 yards and five touchdowns as the Eagles wiped the Linc turf with the Packers, 47-17.

Jan. 23, 2005: The Eagles advanced to their second Super Bowl by shutting down Michael Vick and the Falcons, 27-10. Brian Dawkins' thunderous hit of Atlanta tight end Alge Crumpler was unforgettable.
Sept. 25, 2005: David Akers shook off a hamstring injury to his right (plant) leg and kicked a game-winning 23-yard field goal to beat the Raiders, 23-20. Akers, who had injured himself the week before, aggravated it on the opening kickoff. He also made two extra points after linebacker Mark Simoneau missed badly on a PAT.
Dec. 5, 2005: The Eagles got shellacked by the Seahawks, 42-0, in front of the nation on "Monday Night Football.'' The team retired Reggie White's number at halftime - when the score was 35-0 and fans were filing out.
Sept. 17, 2006: The Eagles had a 24-7 fourth-quarter lead, but blew the game by allowing the Giants to score the next 23 points. A late fumble by Brian Westbrook and a personal-foul penalty on Trent Cole were killers.
Oct. 8, 2006: Terrell Owens' return to Philadelphia resulted in three harmless catches for 45 yards as the Eagles outlasted the Cowboys, 38-24.
Dec. 31, 2006: The Eagles, who had been 5-6, finished off an unlikely march to a division title led by Jeff Garcia with a 24-17 win over Atlanta. The Birds had clinched the NFC East when Dallas was upset by Detroit, which allowed Andy Reid to rest most of his starters and the beers to flow freely in the stands.
Jan. 7, 2007: David Akers kicked a 38-yard field goal as time expired as the Eagles beat the Giants in a wild-card game heart-stopper. Brian Westbrook, battling a stomach virus, ran for 141 yards, including 33 on the final drive.

Oct. 21, 2007: The Eagles allowed Brian Griese to drive 97 yards with 1:47 left and no timeouts and hit Muhsin Muhammad with a game-winning touchdown with 15 seconds left to play. Groan. Bears 19, Eagles 16.

Oct. 26, 2008: The Eagles beat the Falcons, the Phillies beat Tampa Bay in Game 4 of the World Series and a Who concert at the Wells Fargo Center made for an unbelievable day and night at the sports complex.
Nov. 9, 2008: The Eagles lost three replay challenges that were thisclose and fell to the Giants, 36-31.
Nov. 27, 2008: Four days after getting pulled at halftime of a loss to Baltimore, Donovan McNabb threw four touchdowns as the Eagles drilled the Cardinals in a Thanksgiving night game.
Dec. 28, 2008: Brian Dawkins caused fumbles on consecutive drives as the Eagles overwhelmed Dallas, 44-6, in a game in which the winner got the final NFC playoff berth. It was arguably the wildest the Linc has ever been for a regular-season contest.

Dec. 27, 2009: David Akers kicked the game-winning field goal as the Eagles beat the Broncos in Brian Dawkins' return to the Linc.
Sept. 12, 2010: The black-and-blue opener in which fullback Leonard Weaver and center Jamaal Jackson were lost for the season and Kevin Kolb sustained a concussion. The lasting image, though, was Stewart Bradley staggering around after getting a concussion of his own.
Oct. 3, 2010: The quarterback carousel spun again as Michael Vick exited with injured ribs and Kevin Kolb returned in a loss to the Redskins, which were quarterbacked by Donovan McNabb.
Dec. 28, 2010: A loss to Vikings quarterback Joe Webb (who?) - on a Tuesday, no less - cost the Birds a shot at a playoff bye. A blizzard caused the 2-day postponement and the Eagles squandered the momentum they gained after DeSean Jackson's miraculous punt return at the Meadowlands the previous week.
Jan. 9, 2011: David Akers missed a pair of makeable field goals and Michael Vick threw a last-minute end-zone interception in a first-round loss to the sixth-seeded Packers, 21-16. Green Bay would go on to win the Super Bowl and Akers would move on to San Francisco, where he had a career year the following season.
Sept. 25, 2011: Victor Cruz burst into stardom at the Eagles' expense as the Giants, again, the eventual Super Bowl champs, overwhelmed the Birds, 29-16.
Oct. 2, 2011: The Eagles blew a 20-point, second-half lead and lost to the 49ers, 24-23. Ronnie Brown's goal-line pitchback that resulted in a fumble was the lowlight. Rich Hofmann put it best. "The play was conceived out of fear," he wrote. "It was executed out of idiocy."
Oct. 30, 2011: On the night Jim Johnson was posthumously inducted into the team's ring of honor, the Eagles' defense seemed to channel their former coordinator's spirit in a 34-7 win over the Cowboys.
Nov. 27, 2011: Assistant coaches Marty Mornhinweg and Jim Washburn had to be separated in the first-half during a loss to the Patriots. The ugliness wasn't confined to the field as fans chanted for Andy Reid's dismissal while the Eagles fell to 4-7 - 1-5 at home.
Jan. 1, 2012: A four-game season-ending win streak was not enough to overcome early foibles. The Eagles finish 8-8 after dumping the Redskins, 34-10, on New Year's Day.
Sept. 30, 2012: Perhaps inspired by Brian Dawkins' halftime jersey retirement, the Eagles rallied to beat the Giants, 19-17.
Oct. 14, 2012: A fourth-quarter collapse led to a loss to the Lions and the firing of defensive coordinator Juan Castillo.
Dec. 13, 2012: The Eagles committed five turnovers, including fumbles on three consecutive plays, in a dreadful, 34-13 loss to Cincinnati. As Hofmann wrote, "The Eagles are only a laugh track short of a situation comedy right now."
