2004 PatriotsTerrell Owens played for the Eagles in Super Bowl XXXIX despite an ankle injury, but he couldn't stop the Patriots from winning their third championship in four years. Quarterback Tom Brady threw for 236 yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions, but Deion Branch earned MVP honors with 11 receptions and 133 yards. Owens picked up 122 yards of Donovan McNabb's 357 passing yards but left without a ring.
Patriots middle linebacker Tedy Bruschi held a dynasty poster and three fingers for each of his Super Bowl rings following the 24-21 win. It was Andy Reid's first Super Bowl appearance as Eagles head coach, but an experienced Bill Belichick outsmarted him for his third title.
