Eagles most impressive win of the year

The Eagles 31-17 win was perhaps their most impressive of the year.

Eagles most impressive win of the year

The Eagles played a complete game in their 31-17 win Sunday, burying a Falcons team that looked very good coming into the week.

It was perhaps their most impressive performance to date. Only the 28-3 victory at Jacksonville comes close.

The only real worry is DeSean Jackson, who left the game after taking a vicious hit in the second quarter. He was electric in the first half, racking up 78 total yards and two touchdowns in about 15 minutes of work. Kevin Kolb looked his best yet, completing 79 percent of his passes and hitting on three touchdowns against just one interception. We'll see what Andy Reid has to say about his quarterbacks shortly.

The defense played four strong quarters, shutting down the Falcons' runners and Matt Ryan.

Only other concern for Philadelphia is David Akers, who missed three field goals.
