BALTIMORE -- Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was benched after the first half of Sunday's loss to the Baltimore Ravens following a miserable performance in which he committed three turnovers and failed to produce any points.
McNabb was 8-for-18 for 59 yards, with two interceptions and a fumble -- a miserable 13.2 quarterback rating. Kevin Kolb replaced McNabb during the second half for the Eagles, who went on to lose 36-7 on the road.
One week earlier, McNabb threw three interceptions and lost a fumble in an overtime tie with the Bengals.
After that game, the 10-year veteran said he didn't realize an NFL game could end in a tie.
In fairness to McNabb, he didn't get much support from the running game: the Eagles had 35 yards rushing in the first half, and McNabb had 7 of them.
