Video: Brent Celek's Incredible Catch Gives Eagles 14-0 Lead

The Eagles are off to a flying start in a must win game against the New York Jets this afternoon. After a Juqua Parker fumble return opened the scoring, the Eagles once again capitalized on a Santonio Holmes turnover as Michael Vick found Brent Celek for a 26 yard TD to put the Eagles up 14-0.

Just two plays after the Eagles had turned the ball over on a botched punt return by rookie Curtis Marsh, Santonio Holmes let a Mark Sanchez pass go right off his hands into the waiting paws of Asante Samuel. The Eagles then drove 77 yards on 7 plays culminating in a fantastic TD pass from Vick to Celek. For Vick, it was a gutty throw knowing he was about to blasted by the Jets' Calvin Pace, who drew a personal foul on the play for hitting Vick in the head.

Then Celek had to stretch out, tip the ball back to himself, make the catch and then run over both Darrelle Revis and Brodney Poole to cross the goal line. Great effort from both guys on the play.
