Michael Vick threw four TDs and extended his streak of consecutive pass attempts without an interception. He completed 14 of 18 passes in the first half. Grade: A-plus

RUN DEFENSE

The Eagles’ big lead kind of made the Redskins’ run game moot. The Eagles held the ‘Skins to 2.8 yards per carry in the first three quarters before giving up a 32-yard touchdown run to Kelland Williams. Grade: A-minus

PASS DEFENSE
The Eagles intercepted Donovan McNabb three times, giving them 16 picks in nine games. They had some breakdowns in the first half, giving up 206 yards, including 76- and 71-yard completions, and allowed nearly 10 yards per attempt. Grade: B-minus

SPECIAL TEAMS

Jorrick Calvin had a pair of fumbles on kickoff returns, though he recovered both. Eagles gave up 38- and 30-yard kickoff returns to Brandon Banks. David Akers had a 48-yard field goal and Sav Rocca put three punts inside the 20.
Grade: B

OVERALL
Michael Vick was unstoppable both throwing and running. Offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg put together a terrific game plan. The pass defense had some breakdowns on a couple of deep balls. But all in all, a very impressive win that should give them plenty of momentum going into Sunday night’s battle against the Giants. Grade: A
