The Philadelphia Eagles ripped, tarred, humiliated, humbled, and soundly defeated the Washington Redskins 59-28 on Monday night in one of the most complete offensive performances in Eagles history. Eagles quarterback and MVP candidate (?) Michael Vick led the charge by accounting for six touchdowns (four passing, two rushing) and amassing over 400 yards of total offense.
Vick connected with DeSean Jackson for an 88-yard touchdown pass on the game’s first play from scrimmage and immediately set a positive tone for Philadelphia’s high-tech offensive effort.
By the first quarter’s conclusion, the Eagles led 28-0, which was the largest lead ever for a road team after the first quarter in NFL history.
The 6-3 Eagles also set team records for total yards in a game (592) and points in a half (45).
Not to worry Redskins fans; your 4-5 team signed a 33-year-old quarterback to a five-year extension worth $78 million.
