Brunell Hits Holmes For Game-Winner

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) – Mark Brunell’s 51-yard touchdown throw to Santonio Holmes shortly into the fourth quarter put the Jets in front, and New York held on for a 21-17 victory over the Eagles in the team’s final preseason game.

Holmes made four catches for 97 yards on a night when most starters for both teams did not play. Brunell started for New York and completed 11-of-17 passes for 118 yards and two touchdowns, while Kellen Clemens was 7-of-13 for 70 yards.

Danny Woodhead added 45 rushing yards and a score for the Jets, who went 2-2 in the preseason and open their 2010 season by hosting a Monday night contest, September 13, against Baltimore.

Michael Vick started at quarterback for the Eagles and attempted five passes, completing three for 56 yards. Rookie Mike Kafka got the majority of playing time under center and completed only 9-of-27 passes for 76 yards, and was intercepted once.

Kurt Coleman returned two fumbles for touchdowns for the Eagles, who also went 2-2 in the preseason. They begin the season September 12 at home against Green Bay.

Philadelphia gained just 184 yards and did not score in the second half.
