MINNEAPOLIS -- In my mind, Philadelphia coach Andy Reid just made another questionable decision. Quarterback Donovan McNabb's arm appeared to be going forward when he was hit by Vikings defensive end Jared Allen. I don't know if the fumble would've been overturned, but it's one of those where it's OK to take the chance on a challenge.

It looked like McNabb was trying to convince Reid to challenge the play. Eagles left tackle Tra Thomas has had his moments against Allen today, but on that sack, Allen beat him with an outside speed move. Thomas simply didn't get enough depth on the play.

And upon further review, the Vikings just made a huge play on special teams. Let's see if Donovan McNabb can bail his team out again.
