    Kevin Kolb passed for 253 yards while capably filling in for injured Michael Vick , and Quintin Mikell returned Alex Smith 's fumble 51 yards for a touchdown early in the fourth quarter of the Philadelphia Eagles ' 27-24 victory over the winless San Francisco 49ers on Sunday night.

    LeSean McCoy rushed for a score and Trevard Lindley made a last-minute interception for the Eagles (3-2), who forced five turnovers and survived San Francisco's late rally for their fifth straight win over the 49ers (0-5).

    Smith passed for 309 yards, but also committed three turnovers. He received thunderous boos from the Candlestick Park crowd and an apparent tongue-lashing from coach Mike Singletary before leading two fourth-quarter TD drives.
