Sorry, the title doesn't make sense. I started one question, then changed my mind, but forgot to change the title.

"Kolb failed to cure the ailing Eagles (5-5-1), going 10-for-23 for 73 yards and two interceptions -- a 15.3 rating. One of his interceptions was returned an NFL-record 108 yards for a touchdown by Ed Reed." from ESPN.com

Please double check your records. On Nov 23 2008 Reed intercepted Kevin Kolb. I thought it was McNabb.

You are correct. NFL.com's record book still has the 106-yard return as the longest, but Reed did break that in 2008 with a 107-yard return (some sources say 108) against Kolb and the Eagles.

NFL.com record book (showing 106 yard return): http://www.nfl.com/history/randf/records/indiv/ints
NFL.com box score for Nov 23, 2008 (recording a 107 yard return): http://www.nfl.com/gamecenter/200811230 ... /box-score
