The Eagles blew leads against both teams and have now lost five games in which they led in the fourth quarter, including four at home.
McCoy, by the way, is averaging a league-best 7.1 yards per carry in the last 15 minutes.
"Certainly could've gotten it to him more," offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg said Thursday. "They played a bunch of one-on-ones. We had plenty of opportunities there. Not to sound defensive, we had some possibilities there."
Mornhinweg went on to say: "There wasn't quite as many opportunities there in the fourth quarter."
In actuality, there was.
Nursing that 7-point lead early in the fourth, the Eagles had a first down at their 42 after a 14-yard scramble by Vick and an unsportsmanlike penalty.
Sounds like a perfect time to run the ball, work the clock and protect a lead.
The next play was a 2-yard pass. Then two straight incomplete passes and a punt. The Cardinals drove 89 yards for the tying score.
Philadelphia began the next drive at its 20. Three more passes and a punt.
"We're going to do what we think is best to win the game, and that's how we're going to go about it," coach Andy Reid said. "That was just the choice we made."
In Philadelphia's three wins, McCoy has averaged 144.3 yards rushing on 24.3 carries. In the six losses, he's averaged 78.8 yards rushing on only 15.3 carries.
Despite his success, McCoy won't complain about not getting the ball enough.
"I am never going to judge the calls," he said.
