"The Raiders outplayed us and outcoached us," Andy Reid said after the game. Boy was he right.

It's in the books

"The Raiders outplayed us and outcoached us," Andy Reid said after the game. Boy was he right.

Some notable stats:

The Eagles were 2 for 16 on third down.

The offensive line allowed six sacks.

The Eagles tailbacks got only 11 carries, but gained 63 yards on those carries.

The Eagles defense allowed a team that hadn't gained more than 200 yards in the last three weeks to wrack up 325 yards of total offense.

Brian Westbrook was terrific with six rushes for 50 yards, and nine catches for 91 yards.

Donovan McNabb was 22 of 46 for 269 yards and a season-low 66.3 passer rating.

Another tight end gashed the Eagles defense; Zach Miller caught six passes for 139 yards, an average of 23.2 yards per catch.
