Philadelphia Eagles Blow Out Jacksonville Jaguars 28-3

The Philadelphia Eagles turned in their most complete game of the year in a 28-3 road blow out of the Jacksonville Jaguars. Michael Vick was fantastic again throwing for 291 yards, three TDs and rushing for another.

It was all around fantastic day from an Eagles offense that showed both big play ability and red zone efficiency. With Vick at the helm the Eagles have scored TDs on seven of their last eight red zone trips. The big plays came from DeSean Jackson, who caught a 61-yard TD and Jeremy Maclin, who hauled in a 45-yarder. Maclin’s TD was his fourth of the year, which ties him for the most in the NFL.

As good as the Eagles offense was, the defense was perhaps even more impressive. Given how poorly they’d played the last two weeks, the defense's performance today has to be the most important takeaway from Week 3. The defense sacked David Garrard six times and Asante Samuel grabbed his first pick of the year. The Jaguars managed just 184 yards of offense, a decent chunk of which came in garbage time of the 4th quarter.

Up next for the Eagles is Donovan McNabb and the Washington Redskins at Lincoln Financial Field.


Michael Vick's Two TDs Give Philadelphia Eagles 14-3 Lead Over Jacksonville Jaguars At The Half

The Eagles’ offense hasn’t looked quite as crisp as it did last week, but big plays from Michael Vick & DeSean Jackson have given the Eagles a 14-3 lead anyway.

The Eagles first score came on a 61 yard strike from Vick to Jackson on a 3rd and 19. The Eagles second TD came just at the end of the first half as Vick led the Eagles on a 7 play 53 yard drive with no timeouts left that culminated in a 16 yard TD pass to Jeremy Maclin. The drive started with 1:37 left in the half and left just 4 seconds on the clock. Perfectly executed from Michael Vick.

Vick has now hooked up with Maclin for a red zone TD in three straight games.

The Eagles defense played what was arguably it’s best half of football all year. The front four especially have been active sacking David Garrard twice. Darryl Tapp, playing in his first game of the year got the first sack and Trevor Laws, who has been in the backfield constantly, got the second.
