KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Donovan McNabb can dish out pain as well as he can endure it.

Playing with a bruised chest, a sore leg and an aching abdominal strain, McNabb rallied the Eagles on Sunday from an 18-point deficit for a 37-31 victory over Kansas City.

The five-time Pro Bowler hit 33 of 48 passes for 369 yards and three touchdowns as the Eagles (3-1) scored 28 unanswered points. That run followed a 96-yard kickoff return by Dante Hall that put the Chiefs on top 24-6 with 4:27 left in the first half. Terrell Owens made 11 catches for 171 yards and a TD. The Chiefs (2-2) closed to within six points with 1:24 left on Trent Green’s 15-yard TD pass to Hall, but the Eagles recovered the onside kick.

The Chiefs started hot, taking a quick 17-0 lead.

Then Sheldon Brown stopped the momentum with a 40-yard interception return for the Eagles’ first TD, and Hall took the ensuing kickoff all the way back and the Chiefs led 24-6 when the extra point was no good. But Owens and McNabb awakened the defending NFC champs. After Sam Raburn recovered a Larry Johnson fumble on the 50, McNabb hit Owens for 28 yards and then capped the quick drive with a 7-yard TD pass to the Eagles’ top receiver. Rookie Todd France, whose first field goal attempt was blocked, made good on a 44-yarder to bring the Eagles to within 24-16.

Then McNabb hit Owens twice for a total of 58 yards in a 4-play, 60-yard drive capped by Mike Bartrum’s 3-yard TD catch.

A 2-point conversion pass to Brian Westbrook tied it 24-all with 1:54 left in the third and hushed the sellout crowd .

France put the Eagles ahead 27-24 with a 37-yarder in the fourth quarter.

Then Hall fumbled away the ensuing kickoff and McNabb needed just six plays to cover the 25 yards, hitting L.J. Smith with a 1-yard TD toss after Smith had made a circus catch of a tipped ball on third and seven.

France added a 26-yard field goal with 3:22 to go.
