Eagles-Falcons Report Card


LeSean McCoy had just six carries for a season-low 2 yards. Leonard Weaver continued to prove he can be productive as a runner. He had 12- and 15-yard runs and finished with 37 yards on five carries. Michael Vick converted a third-and-1 into a 5-yard touchdown run. Grade: B-minus


Donovan McNabb threw just 25 passes, but averaged 9.52 yards per attempt. He had a pair of 50-plus yard completions to Jeremy Maclin and fullback Leonard Weaver. Maclin, who finished with four catches for 83 yards, has had 60-plus receiving yards in four straight games. Grade: B-plus


It helped that the Falcons were missing their starting running back and two of their starting offensive linemen, but that's not the Eagles' problem. They held the Falcons to 2.8 yards per carry and stuffed them on a big goal-line stand at the end of the second quarter. Grade: A-plus


While they only had two sacks, the Eagles pressured Falcons quarterback Chris Redman all day. They held him to 5.34 yards per attempt and picked him off twice, including one that cornerback Sheldon Brown returned 83 yards for a touchdown. Grade: A-minus


Punt returner Jeremy Maclin did a good job in place of injured DeSean Jackson. He averaged 11.3 yards per return and had a 27-yarder that kick-started the Eagles' first scoring drive. Coverage units didn't give up any long returns to Eric Weems, but didn't shut him down either. David Akers missed a 39-yard field-goal attempt. Grade: B


Sean McDermott's defense came within one play of pitching the Eagles' first shutout in 13 years. The offense continues to shoot itself in the foot too many times and converted just one of its first four red-zone opportunities, which won't cut it against better teams. Grade: B-plus
