It was Taylor's second career touchdown. "It was a good position to be in," Taylor said. "'We were in zone coverage. I know they probably thought we were trying to be in man coverage because we play a lot of man. Jim (Johnson) made a great call and I had a bead on it and made a break on the ball and tried to make it to the pylon." Early in the second quarter, A.J. Feeley hit Todd Pinkston with a 41-yard pass to the 12 yard line. A third penalty awarded to Tre Thomas and a. dropped slant pass by Todd Pinkston set up a David Akers 31-yard field I I Read and react Continued from page U0 on. He ran 47 yards in overtime to beat the Vikings. How bad are the Vikings? Real bad! Vick wouldn't make it out of the first half if he tucks and runs against Philadel- phia. Speaking of real bad, the Ravens are back at 6-6 and are breathing on the necks of the Steelers that may cause more bumps on Ko- rdell's Steward's neck. Can't someone teach that millionaire how to shave? And let's forget the Lambeau Field mys- tic. The Packers don't pack the punch and goal. It was the 82nd career field goal for Akers. The Eagles led 10-0 with 4:30 left in the half. Feeley was playing better than his support staff. Antonio Freeman had al- so dropped a pass in his numbers on a skin- ny post pattern that looked like a sure touchdown. "I don't know if people were saying, 'Don't make mistakes,'" Feeley said. "Maybe people in the media. I wasn't watching or reading a lot of stuff this week. I was in my own little zone this week doing my own thing. I realized if I made a couple of plays early these guys would rally around me like they rallied around Key (Detmer). "I went in with the mentality of taking care of the ball. I realize they have a good defense, don't give them the opportunity to \\; the Eagles defense will "bring the pain" which screams for the name "Pain Killers," but that would be insensitive and cruel which are admired qualities in a football team. Brett Farve wouldn't like it. COLLEGE FOOTBALL - The game I want to see is Iowa versus Miami, but it just won't happen unless Miami loses to Vir- ginia Tech and that seems unlikely. Ohio State has no chance against the Hurricanes. It won't even be a good game. If Notre Dame makes it to a BCS bowl it will be scandalous. And please write your own Catholic joke and I know not all Catholic men are predators because I'm not. We're score a lot of points on defense. If I do that then things will take care of themselves." Warner completed a pass to Tory Holt who fumbled. The ball was recovered by Bobby Taylor at the 29 yard line. Dorsey Levins fumbled back to the Rams on the very next play. Warner began to look like Kurt Warner just before halftime, throwing laser beams down the field and moving 66 yards in six plays to the four yard line of the Eagles. Jeff Wilkins kicked a 20-yard field goal with 20 seconds remaining in the half as the Rams trailed 10-3. The Rams drove down the field to start the second half, but Grant fumbled the ball and Michael Lewis recovered for the Ea- gles. The fumble was caused by Shawn Barber, his second fumble-causing tackle of not talking food here, are we? Salisbury University was eliminated in the first round of the Division III tourna- ment, losing 28-0 to Kings College of Pennsylvania. The Sea Gulls will only get stronger as an attractive university as it now offers a solid football program. They will attract more good players and possibly hurt Wesley College of Dover. Three Atlantic 10 teams will open play in the IAA tournament on Pearl Harbor Day. That's right, Dec. 7. Maine will visit Geor- gia Southern while Villanova will host Fordham. Delaware beat two of the three teams and should have beaten Villanova as well. the game. Brian Westbrooke fumbled after a nine- yard pass. Dre Bly returned the ball 13 yards to the Eagles 40 yard line. Troy V'm- cent intercepted a Kurt Warner pass intend- ed for Isaac Bruce in the end zone as the Eagles took over on the 20 yard line, but were unable to move the football. And that was it for action. The win moved the Eagles to 9-3 which gives them a three game lead over the Giants with four to play in the division, and also ties them with Green Bay and Tampa Bay for best records in the NFC. The Eagles Own the tie breakers over both teams. The Birds fly to Seattle this weekend as the improbable season continues. HIGH SCHOOL - Sussex Central played hard but fell to St. Mark's who will face William Penn in the state champi- onship game. Middletown, had William Penn buried last Saturday, but fell apart in the fourth quarter. Delmar will go after its third consecutive Division II title facing Howard. Howard is playing in the school's first-ever football state tournament appearance. Whichever team wins it's a great story All-State teams will be announced after the tournament to avoid "issues" from play- ers who didn't make the team. Oh, I see. Long drive - outta here!
