EAGLES 34, BROWNS 31 (OT)
By wire services
Published October 25, 2004
CLEVELAND - As he left Browns Stadium, Terrell Owens pulled a Sharpie out of his pocket and signed autographs for any fan who wanted one. Jeff Garcia was nowhere around.
David Akers kicked a 50-yard field goal in overtime, and Donovan McNabb matched a career high with four touchdown passes - two to Owens - as the Eagles stayed unbeaten with their win Sunday.
"We had our good points. We made some mistakes. But we're 6-0 and I like it," McNabb said of the Eagles' best start since 1981.
Philadelphia survived its stiffest test by far this season from the Browns, who made as many big plays and got a favorable call in the fourth quarter to force OT.
But despite getting 27 first downs and 394 yards of offense, Cleveland couldn't quite pull off the upset.
"There are no moral victories in the NFL," Browns center Jeff Faine said, "but we took these guys to the limit."
McNabb finished 28-of-43 for 376 yards and one interception. But it was his legs that set up Akers' winner, a 28-yard scramble that got the ball to midfield.
"There's one reason I did it," McNabb said. "I was open. I prefer not to run, but I have to take full advantage of every opportunity."
