(Sporting Alert) — The Philadelphia Eagles ran a remarkable 52 plays in the first half on their way to taking a 26-7 lead over the Washington Redskins in Monday Night Football action at FedEx Field.
Veteran quarterback Michael Vick threw for two touchdowns and then rushed to the left for 3 yard gain to score for the Eagles, who dominated the first half.
After recovering from his fumble early in the first quarter, which contributed to the Redskins taking the lead on a DeAngelo Hall 75 yards return, Vick took control of the game.
He passed down the middle to find DeSean Jackson for a 25 yard gain and then found Brent Celek down the middle again for a 28 yard gain as a very offensive minded Eagles side took control.
Washington Redskins’ quarterback Robert Griffin III looked a bit rusty on his return to competitive action, but will be hoping for a better outing in the second half.
So Vick has completed 13 for 21 passes for 190 yards.
Philadelphia ended the half with a total of 341 yards.
