McNabb drives Eagles to win

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Donovan McNabb threw a 6-yard touchdown pass to Todd Pinkston with 27 seconds left to give the Philadelphia Eagles a 17-14 victory over the Green Bay Packers last night.

Pinkston caught his first TD pass of the season when he beat cornerback Bhawoh Jue off the line and got free in the left side of the end zone.

With the win in the rain at Lambeau Field, the Eagles (6-3) stayed one game behind Dallas in the NFC East and the Packers (4-5) fell two games behind Minnesota in the NFC North.

Philadelphia started the winning drive at its 35 with 2:42 remaining and McNabb completed passes of 11 yards to Duce Staley and 20 yards to Chad Lewis.

The Packers drove to midfield with eight seconds left when Brett Favre, playing with a broken right thumb, fumbled for the third time, sealing Green Bay's third home loss of the season.

Ahman Green rushed for a team-record 192 yards and scored on a 45-yard run and a 24-yard screen pass, but he fumbled two times.
