Top Ten Philly Sports Moments of 2010: #3 Eagles Comeback Against the Giants

Desean_jackson_new_yorkThis is our second annual "Top Ten Philly Sports Moments of the year."  You can find last year's list here.  We will roll out a new moment each day (one over the weekend) from now until New Year's Eve.

The week couldn't have gotten any better for Philly sports fans.  Cliff Lee had just thumbed his nose at the Yankees and the Flyers were coming off a resounding win against the Rangers.

After being completely dominated for three quarters, we couldn't expect the Eagles to complete the perfect week.  Trailing 31-10 with eight minutes remaining, they appeared to be dead in the water. Then, just like the Cliff Lee signing, something funny happened.  A long shot miracle at best, the Eagles slowly unveiled themselves as a contender in the game, just as the Phillies did in the Lee sweepstakes.

A few short minutes later, DeSean Jackson sprinted past the Giants, toward the endzone and an Eagles vistory.

In a year of Philly sports comebacks, the final half a quarter of the Eagles game against the Giants may have been the most unlikely of the bunch.  There was no margin for error.  No time to assess things.  And, instead of just playing better, the Eagles needed a lot of help from our little siblings to the North to complete their comeback.

Watch our highlight video of a week of dominance, after the jump.

Rest of the Top Ten here.  As always, leave your memories of this moment in the comments.
