Donovan McNabb Vs. Michael Vick Round 2: 5 Keys For The Philadelphia Eagles

The Washington Redskins defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 17-12 in a very ugly Week 4 game. 

In Donovan McNabb's return to Philadelphia, the Redskins got off to a quick start by taking a 14-point lead in the first quarter. 

Washington's defense played very well and only allowed one touchdown, which game late in the fourth quarter. 

However, Michael Vick was forced out of a game with a rib injury in the first quarter.  Kevin Kolb replaced Vick and did not to enough to get the Eagles back into the game.  

Also, the Eagles held the Redskins to zero points in the second half.  

Philadelphia is coming off a big game against the Indianapolis Colts, while Washington is looking to bounce back after losing to the Detroit Lions and then having to face questions about a quarterback controversy during their bye week.  

This is a very important game for both teams.  The Redskins are 4-4 and need to start winning these types of games if they plan on gaining ground in the division.    

At 5-3, everyone knows what Philadelphia's offense is capable of with Vick at quarterback, but they need to string together three or four wins in a row in order to gain momentum.  

Here are five keys to success for the Philadelphia Eagles when they play the Washington Redskins on Monday night.
