Eagles eke past Jags 28-27


PHILADELPHIA -- Playing their first game without Donovan McNabb, the Eagles showed they have capable quarterbacks.

Starter Kevin Kolb was impressive, and backup Michael Vick displayed flashes of his old self before rookie Mike Kafka rallied the Eagles to a 28-27 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars in their preseason opener Friday night.

Pro Bowl kicker David Akers made all five of his field goals, including a 36-yarder that gave the Eagles a one-point lead in the fourth quarter.

Jaguars backup Luke McCown picked apart the Eagles&39; junior-varsity secondary, throwing for 244 yards and three touchdowns.
