Donovan McNabb received a standing ovation on Sunday and got the last laugh as the Redskins outlasted his former team, 17-12.

The Eagles were undone by a porous run defense (allowed 4.8 yards per carry), questionable coaching (Philly settled for a field goal instead going for it late in the first half due to a delay of game penalty), and most importantly, a rib/chest injury to starting quarterback Michael Vick.

The Redskins jumped out to a 14-0 first quarter lead and that was all they needed.

Following the game, Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan presented McNabb with the game ball.

After taking the high road for much of the week and following the game, McNabb managed to get a parting shot in after the game was over.

While addressing his teammates in the locker room following the win, the former Eagle landed a quick jab to his former team.

“Everybody makes mistakes in their lives. And they made one last year,” said McNabb.

He finished 8 of 19 for 125 yards with a touchdown and interception.

McNabb Bowl II is set for Monday night, November 15.
