In a huge division rivalry, the main focus of this game was Michael Vick vs. Donavan McNabb. In the first meeting this season, neither quarterback preformed well; however McNabb did walk away victorious.
Vick made it clear that he and the rest of the Eagles team had come to play on Monday night. Vick was in true form throwing for 333 yards and four touchdowns. He was 20 for 28 passing in the game and also ran the ball eight times for 80 yards and two more touchdowns.
Vick did have plenty of help as he spread the ball around a lot. The four of the touchdowns that Vick threw went to four different receivers and seven Eagles' players made at least one reception.
On the other side of the field, McNabb and the Redskins
seemed to struggle the entire game.
McNabb went 17 for 31, throwing for almost 300 yards. He also threw for
two touchdowns and three interceptions.
The game seemed as if it was going to be record-setting as the Eagles scored a remarkable 28 points in the first quarter. It was a complete devouring of division rival.
Vick's passer rating of 150.1 was the second straight perfect passer rating for the quarterback and it seemed to highlight the day. It also placed the Eagles back atop the National Football Conference East Division standings.
