NFL Playoffs

FILE - In this July 29, 2013, file photo, six-time Pro Bowl quarterback Donovan McNabb, left, and Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie embrace following a news conference in Philadelphia, where it was announced that McNabb was to officially retire as a member of the Eagles. McNabb played 11 of his 13 seasons with the Eagles, leading them to eight playoff appearances, five NFC East titles, five conference championship games and one Super Bowl loss. Lurie grew up a passionate Boston sports fan. He even tried to buy the Patriots in 1993 but was outbid by Robert Kraft. So the former movie producer paid $195 million for the Eagles in 1994. Lurie vowed to win multiple championships for a city that hasn't celebrated an NFL title since 1960. He's still waiting for No. 1. Nothing else matters this week. (AP Photo/ Joseph Kaczmarek, File)
