PHILADELPHIA (AP) — While compassionate fans showed their support for Andy Reid, most of the Philadelphia Eagles gave a boo-worthy performance in their preseason opener.
The first-team offense went three-and-out twice and Michael Vick barely escaped serious injury when he hurt his thumb on his last play. The starting defense allowed an opening drive that lasted 9:48 and gave up 10 points on two possessions.
Still, the Eagles (No. 8 in the AP Pro32) walked away with a 24-23 win over Pittsburgh when Alex Henery kicked a 51-yard field goal with 12 seconds left Thursday night.
That won't cut it in the regular season.
