NFL Playoff Scores: Packers Vs. Eagles - Philadelphia Strikes Back, But Still Losing, 21-10

The Philadelphia Eagles took advantage of a Green Bay Packers mistake early in the third quarter, but they are still losing, 21-10, at the end of three periods. The Eagles kicked off to start the second half, giving the Packers the ball. On 3rd-and-2, Aaron Rodgers was sacked and stripped of the ball by Daryl Tapp. The Eagles recovered the ball on Green Bay's 24-yard line.

After an incomplete pass to start the new drive, Eagles quarterback Michael Vick threw a 24-yard dart to receiver Jason Avant for a touchdown. After the extra point, the Packers still held the lead, 14-10.

All this happened in the first 1:55 of the quarter. However, Aaron Rodgers took care of things several minutes later when he completed an 11-play, 80-yard touchdown drive with a 16-yard pass to Brandon Jackson. The Packers took a 21-10 lead. Rodgers now had three passing touchdowns today, while Michael Vick is 11-of-20 for a 157 yards and one touchdown.
