PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Playing with a broken right ankle that could sideline him the rest of the regular season, Donovan McNabb had the best passing game of his career.
McNabb's injury casts a cloud over their playoff hopes. Unlike some other teams that have several star players, McNabb is the guy for the Eagles. He's not only their quarterback but also their spiritual leader, so it will be hard for them to compete on a high level without him -- and this is crunch time. It's unfortunate, but it's part of the game.
