3rd Quarter: Packers 13 - Eagles 13

The Eagles took the lead for the first time in the game with a little over 8 minutes to go in the quarter on a 46-yard field goal. The Eagles had a promising drive going, but were stopped on 3rd-and-5 when Al Harris broke up a potential TD pass in the end zone.

The most exciting play of the quarter was a 3rd-and-10 as Brett was about to be sacked. With defenders hanging off him, Brett made an improvised shovel pass to rookie RB DeShawn Wynn, who broke a few tackles, got some blocks, and scampered for 18 yards to the Eagles 25 and a first down.

Brett is definitely going to be in need of the hot tub after this game -- he's taking a pounding while trying to keep the drives going, improvising and scrambling as best he can.

Following a sack -- after getting the ball down to the Eagles 12 yard line -- the Pack had to settle for a 37-yard field goal to tie the game just before the end of the quarter.
