~PHILADELPHIA – The city of Philadelphia hasn’t been kind to the Green Bay Packers, and with all the nutty, unpredictable things happening on Sunday, it looked as though this town might get the last laugh again.

But the Packers overcame a handful of injuries, a sub-par day from their Pro Bowl quarterback, and an unexpected change under center for the Eagles that almost led to a stunning comeback. 

“Finally,” linebacker Nick Barnett said of getting a win here. “We’ve had a lot of heartbreaks on this field. Fourth-and-26, a lot of other different situations. It feels good to leave this field, finally, with a win.”

  Ultimately, Green Bay held on for a 27-20 season-opening victory at Lincoln Financial Field when the defense stopped Eagles backup quarterback Michael Vick on fourth-and-1 from the Green Bay 42-yard line with under two minutes left.
