TDIF: Donovan McNabb’s Magical Escape in ‘Big D’

Dallas Cowboys, Philadelphia Eagles, TCIPF Staff, This Day in NFL History

On this date in football eight years ago, Eagles’ quarterback Donovan McNabb performed one of the most unbelievable escapes by a player in NFL history. Resembling the elusiveness of former Philadelphia Eagle Randall Cunningham, D-Mac, as many called him, displayed his ability in evading onrushing defenders as well as his arm strength to a national audience on Monday Night Football against the Dallas Cowboys. Number five’s stunning play left sportscasters the next morning timing his scramble, which lasted a whopping 14 seconds until he had released the ball.

In addition, McNabb led his team to victory, tossing four touchdown passes, including three to wide receiver Terrell Owens. Here’s a look back at that game, as originally presented in “Inside the NFL.”
