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.
