You had to know that the Cincinnati Bengals would be involved in the NFL's first tie game in six years. It's been that kind of year for the boys in orange and black.
They say that a tie is like kissing your sister. I guess the Bengals and Eagles better pucker up: the two set football back years before settling for a 13-13 tie.
The odd thing is that this was a kind of winning feeling for both teams. For the Bengals, anything that doesn't show up in the loss column is a positive experience. The Eagles, who didn't know games could end in a tie, have to feel good about not coming up with a loss since they played like they should have been pounded.
Donovan McNabb went 28-for-58 for 339 yards (that will happen when you throw it a career-high 58 times), one touchdown and three interceptions. The Eagles as a whole coughed it up four times which turned into ten of Cincinnati's 13 points.
All that throwin' meant Brian Westbrook had just 14 carries for 60 yards and was basically a non-factor.
