PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Forget home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs. The Philadelphia Eagles have to win the division first.Tony Parrish's second interception set up a 22-yard field goal by Todd Peterson in overtime, helping the San Francisco 49ers snap the Eagles' nine-game winning streak, 31-28 on Sunday.
This was one of the most surprising victories of the weekend because it was accomplished mostly without Terrell Owens and because of the 49ers' road woes. In the end the 49ers defense made enough plays to win this game. I definitely put the outcome of this game up there with the outcome of the Atlanta-Tampa Bay game.
Question on the Eagles: Do you think playing the NFC title game on the road could derail their Super Bowl hopes?
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
