Eagles pull within seven after quick-strike drive

The Eagles’ go-go offense may not be good at holding leads, but it’s pretty effective at erasing deficits.

Down 23-9 in the fourth quarter, the Eagles drove 78 yards in 1:21 to cut the margin in half.

The drive was capped by a 41-yard touchdown sprint from LeSean McCoy, who appeared to injure his leg late in the first half but returned in the third quarter.

The Eagles would be in position to win the game by a point if they hadn’t tried a goofy “swinging gate” fake after their first touchdown of the game.  As it stands, they need seven to tie.
