PHILADELPHIA (AP) — These Philadelphia Eagles are the NFL's latest version of the Cardiac Kids.

Michael Vick led the Eagles (3-1) to their third comeback win Sunday night, a 19-17 victory over the New York Giants that wasn't sealed until Lawrence Tynes missed a 54-yard field goal try in the waning seconds.

That made Philadelphia the first team in league history to have its first three wins in a season decided by two points or less. The Eagles hadn't won three games in an entire season by two points or fewer since 1990, and they'd never done it more than once under Andy Reid.

After a nightmarish start last season in which they blew three straight fourth-quarter leads to fall to 1-3, the Eagles will take any win no matter how slim the margin.
