Michael Vick The former Falcon scored his first touchdown with his Birds of a different feather, and the crowd at the Georgia Dome cheered him for it. The fans cheered even louder when he threw his first TD pass as an Eagle in the fourth quarter.
The former Falcon scored his first touchdown with his Birds of a different feather, and the crowd at the Georgia Dome cheered him for it. The fans cheered even louder when he threw his first TD pass as an Eagle in the fourth quarter.
Vick's score was made possible by McNabb's precision passing on the Eagles' first possession of the second half.
The Eagles are 8-4 three-quarters of the way through the season, and all signs point to a contract extension for the head coach in the very near future.
With DeSean Jackson sidelined by a concussion, the fullback became the Eagles' big-play receiver. His 59-yard catch late in the first quarter was the longest of the day and came after he scored on a 4-yard reception.
If the second-year safety wants to know why he's not on the field more, it's because of stupid penalties like the two he took yesterday. They were reminiscent of the inexcusable mistakes he made in the NFC championship game against Arizona.
The rookie was really the Eagles' big-play receiver, catching four passes for 83 yards, including a 56-yarder in the second quarter that set up a David Akers field goal.
The Eagles cornerback officially turned this game into a rout with his career-long 83-yard interception return for a TD in the third quarter. It was his fifth pick of the season.
A lot of big hits and a fourth-quarter interception. The personal-foul call on the safety in the end zone was bogus.
The rookie defensive tackle came through with another big play, stopping Jason Snelling for a 1-yard loss on a third-and-goal play from the 1-yard line near the end of the first half.
Six carries for 2 yards. He was the only Eagles offensive skill player to have a bad day.
The Eagles safety came up with an even bigger play when he stopped Snelling on fourth down, sending the Falcons to the locker room at halftime without any points.
The versatile defensive lineman tipped two passes at the line of scrimmage and registered a sack.
He had the Eagles' other sack and also contributed a tipped pass.
Joe Mays and Dimitri Patterson
This duo combined to force an Eric Weems fumble on a first-quarter kickoff.
Invisible for most of the season, Brown dropped the first pass thrown his way but came back with two catches for 64 yards, including a big third-down reception that led to the Eagles' first TD.
The Eagles linebacker covered the fumble at the Falcons' 22-yard line, and it led to the game's first touchdown.
Get well soon, Matt Ryan.
