Eagles At Redskins: Michael Vick Has Milestone In Sight

Tonight's matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and Washington Redskins has huge implications for both squads as they try to position themselves for a potential playoff spot. There's individual story-lines galore, but there's also so much at stake for both teams in terms of positioning in the NFC East and NFC Wild Card standings.

One individual note to keep an eye on however not related to Donovan McNabb and the huge contract extension he just signed is the possibility of Michael Vick surpassing Steve Young for the second most rushing yards all-time by a quarterback. Here are the current rankings. If Vick can amass 25 yards, which certainly seems like a distinct possibility, he'll move past Young and inch closer to catching Randall Cunningham.
