Vick Leads Eagles Over Redskins 34-10
Michael Vick threw three touchdown passes, including a 62-yarder to DeSean Jackson, and the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Washington Redskins 34-10 Sunday for their fourth straight win.
The Eagles (8-8) are hoping to carry the momentum from their strong finish into next season. But they can’t be satisfied after entering the year with Super Bowl aspirations.
It’s the first time since 2007 that Philadelphia didn’t qualify for the postseason and just the fourth time in coach Andy Reid’s 13 seasons. The Eagles set a franchise record for total yards on offense with 6,386.
The Redskins (5-11) finished in last place in the NFC East for a franchise-worst fourth straight year. It was Mike Shanahan’s worst full season in 18 years as a coach.
