McNabb, who had only five interceptions coming in, went 28-of-58 for 339 yards. He repeatedly missed open receivers in an offense that has come to rely on him almost entirely because it lacks a running game. Brian Westbrook managed only 60 yards, his third straight sub-par game.
Ryan Fitzpatrick went 29-of-44 for 261 yards with a touchdown set up by McNabb's first interception. He was under heavy pressure all game, forcing the Bengals to punt 11 times, tying their team record.
After Philadelphia's David Akers tied it at 13 with 5:18 to go in regulation, neither team could put together a drive until the Bengals' final one, set up by Sav Rocca's third shanked punt of the game to Cincinnati's 41. Sheldon Brown's roughing-the-passer penalty gave the Bengals another huge break and set up Graham's final kick.
Not even the breaks could break the tie.
