The third time is not the charm for Andy Reid as his Philadelphia Eagles are beaten in the NFC Championship Game for the third straight season. This time the Eagles are knocked off by the Carolina Panthers 14-3. Ricky Manning Jr. leads the way in a suburb effort by the Panthers’ defense, intercepting Donovan McNabb three times. The Panthers’ first trip to the Super Bowl came just two years after a 1-15 season.
