BALTIMORE (AP) -Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was benched after the first half of Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens following a miserable performance in which he committed three turnovers and failing to produce any points.
McNabb was 8-for-18 for 59 yards and two interceptions and a fumble - a miserable 13.2 quarterback rating.
One week earlier, he threw three interceptions and lost a fumble in an overtime tie with Cincinnati.
After that game, the 10-year veteran said he didn't realize an NFL game could end in a tie.
With the Eagles down 10-7 at halftime Sunday, Philadelphia coach Andy Reid turned to Kevin Kolb, a second-round pick who didn't throw a pass as a rookie last year and had attempted nine throws this season.
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.
