Packers-Eagles game capsule

The Green Bay Packers take their six-game winning streak into 10-1 Philadelphia in a Sunday showdown.

WHAT: Green Bay Packers (7-4) at Philadelphia Eagles (10-1)

WHEN: 3:15 p.m. Sunday

WHERE: Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia

TV: Fox

OPENING LINE: Eagles by 6.

LAST GAMES: The Packers beat the Rams 45-17 as Najeh Davenport rushed for 179 yards in his first career start and Brett Favre threw three touchdown passes. The Eagles beat the Giants 27-6 behind a dominating defensive performance against Giants rookie QB Eli Manning.

SERIES RECORD: Packers lead 24-12.

LAST MEETING: On Nov. 10, 2003, the Eagles stole a 17-14 victory at rainy Lambeau Field on "Monday Night Football."

Ahman Green ran for a franchise-record 192 yards on 29 attempts, including a 45-yard scoring dash on a fourth-and-1 play midway through the fourth quarter that put the Packers in front 14-10.

But the Eagles emerged victorious when Donovan McNabb guided a last-minute, 65-yard scoring drive, capped on his 6-yard touchdown pass to Todd Pinkston with 27 seconds left. Pinkston beat Bhawoh Jue, who was pressed into duty when Al Harris left the game with cramps.

Green Bay had a last chance but Favre fumbled near midfield. His was hardly the only fumble. Green coughed up it up twice and the Packers had six as a team. Philadelphia recovered two of the fumbles and had an interception to win the turnover battle 3-0.
