Miracle of Meadowlands II

Longtime Philadelphia Eagles fans still remember where they were in 1978 when the New York Giants handed the game to the Eagles.

It's called the Miracle of the Meadowlands, and it happened when Giants quarterback Joe Pisarcik gave the ball way and Herman Edwards ran it in for the score with no time left.

Fast forward to Sunday, when the Eagles capped their biggest comeback since 1946 to win when the Giants amazingly punted to DeSean Jackson and Jackson did his thing with no time left.

It was a remarkable game and comeback, and I'll know it as Miracle of the Meadowlands II.

It's too bad that the Steelers couldn't win their game on the last play. That would have everyone smiling today, not just Eagles' fans
