Eagles troll Packers pregame with '4th and 26' scoreboard

Almost 13 years ago, the Green Bay Packers were the victims of one of the most famous plays in Philadelphia Eagles lore, referred to simply as "4th and 26." On that play, Donovan McNabb fired to Freddie Mitchell on 4th and 26 from deep in his own end to earn a new set of downs. That set up David Akers' game-tying field goal to send it to overtime, which was followed by another field goal in the extra frame to send Philadelphia to the NFC Championship Game.

With Green Bay in town for the first time since 2011 for Monday Night Football, the folks running the scoreboard at Lincoln Financial Field didn't waste an opportunity to troll the Pack:

ESPN's Football Power Index gives the Eagles a 63 percent chance of winning. Green Bay's last visit to Philly was a wild-card playoff victory.
