In his first start since being named the starting quarterback for the year, Michael Vick led the Eagles to a 28-3 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Vick wasn’t extremely efficient, completing just over half of his passes. However, he created a lot of big plays and did not turn the ball over. Wide receiver DeSean Jackson was his favorite target on the day, catching five passes for 153 yards including a 61 yard touchdown. Jeremy Maclin was also a popular target on the day, catching four passes for 83 yards and two touchdowns. Vick added the fourth touchdown on a rush in the third quarter.
Defensively, the Eagles held the Jaguars to a single field goal and looked absolutely dominate in the second half. David Garrard was held to 105 yards through the air, and they gave up 130 yards on 33 attempts. The defense recorded six sacks, including two by Trent Cole. Asante Samuel also recorded an interception.
As a note, quarterback Kevin Kolb warmed up late in the fourth quarter and looked as if he would enter the game if the Eagles got the ball back. However, the Jaguars remained on offense the rest of the game so he didn’t have the chance to play.
More to come on the game later.
