With little on the line besides pride and not finishing with a losing record, the Eagles used a strong second half to destroy the Redskins 34-10 Sunday to finish the season at 8-8 on a four-game winning streak.
With the NFC’s leading rusher LeSean McCoy sitting out, QB Michael Vick threw for 335 yards on 24-for-39 passing, three touchdowns and an interception (a 104.1 passer rating). His favorite target was Jeremy Maclin who hauled in eight balls for 105 yards including a juggling grab in the fourth quarter.
The Eagles led the whole way but the lead was down to just 13-10 early in the fourth quarter until the Birds went off for 21 unanswered points.
DeSean Jackson hauled in four balls for 86 yards including a season-high 62-yard TD. Brent Celek hauled in a 4-yard TD, part of his six-catch, 86-yard day. And, rookie Dion Lewis (in place of McCoy) rushed 12 times for 58 yards and score.

It’s been a long, disappointing season for DeSean Jackson. Eagles players knew DeSean was unhappy with his contract and thought he was avoiding contact to stay healthy. Then in November, Jackson was deactivated for a game because he missed a team meeting. And after a bad Thursday night game against the Seahawks, teammates said he wasn’t trying hard.
Despite all that, quarterback...

Against the Giants, he brought Eli Manning down for the first of his career. Against the Eagles, he took care of things early, “Orakpo-ing” Michael Vick on his first third down pressure.
Now that the...
