The Eagles destroyed the Jets today! Michael Vick had a solid game as he completed 15 of 22 passes for 274 yards with 1 TD pass and 1 INT. He also carried the ball 5 times for 32 yards (6.4 ypc) with 1 TD run in this game. Lesean McCoy led the way on the ground for the Eagles in this game with 18 carries for 102 yards (5.7 ypc) with 3 TD runs. TE Brent Celek had a huge game, just like I predicted he would, as he caught 5 passes for 156 yards (31.2 avg) with 2 TD grabs. WR Jeremy Maclin pitched in with 3 grabs for 57 yards (19.0 avg). The Eagles finished up with 160 yards rushing on 33 carries (4.8 ypc) and they also completed 15 of 22 passes (68.2%) for 260 yards as they had possession of the ball for 30:03.
The Eagles’ D was flat out awesome in this game. DE Phillip Hunt (6 tackles, 1 tackle for a loss, 1 sack and 1 QB hit), LB Akeem Jordan (6 tackles) and DE Jason Babin (4 tackles, 3 sacks, 3 tackles for a loss and 3 QB hits) led the way for the Eagles on D in this game. LB Jamar Chaney (interception), CB Joselio Hanson (fumble recovery) and DE Juqua Parker (fumble recovery that he returned 47 yards for a TD) also made HUGE plays for the Eagles in this game. The Jets finished up with 94 yards rushing on 27 carries (3.5 ypc) and they also completed 16 of 29 passes (55.2%) for 147 yards. The Eagles are now 6-8 on the season and believe it or not…..they can still win the NFC East and get back to the playoffs.
