Philadelphia Eagles Soar Over New York Jets, 45-19
Sunday afternoon began with Eagles dominating and ended the same way as Philadelphia annihilated the Jets (enter score).
This victory can be credited to the Eagles complete play on both sides of the ball for most of the game.
For almost the entire half, their defense was causing turnovers, which was complemented by Michael Vick and the offense piling on the points.
For a moment towards the end of the second quarter, it seemed as if the Jets finally found their rhythm after scoring 13 unanswered points and only being down by two possessions going into half time.
Unfortunately for the Jets the Eagles had other plans going into the second half as Philadelphia held the Jets scoreless until there was more that 9 minutes left remaining in the fourth quarter, while they added even more points.
Some of the big performers for the Eagles today were Jason Babin, Michael Vick, LeSean McCoy.
Meanwhile, LeSean McCoy broke the record for most touchdowns by an Eagles running back as he finished with 3 touchdowns.
Michael Vick also had a great day as it seemed the rib injury he had from a month ago had absolutely no effect on him. He was moving around the pocket well and evading plenty of sacks and finished the day going 15-22 for 274 yards with 2 touchdowns (1 rushing, 1 passing).
Next week the Jets return to New York to keep their playoff hopes alive against the New York Giants.
Meanwhile, the Eagles will travel to the lone star state to take on the Dallas Cowboys.

With 1:11 left, the Eagles go into their victory formation and will let the clock run. The final score will be:
New York Jets: 19 - Philadelphia Eagles: 45
Looks like the Jets are going to their substitutes as well as Mark Brunell comes in at quarterback and Joe McKnight comes in to play running back.
On a 3rd and 11, the Jets convert on a screen pass to the speedy back McKnight and are trying to get some more points on the board to make this loss seem somewhat respectable.
The Jets fail to convert the two-point conversion.
Update Score: New York Jets: 19 - Philadelphia Eagles: 45
I would not be surprised if the Jets try an onside kick here.
And the ruling on the field is reversed, it is a touchdown for Plaxico Burress, his eighth of the season. With that touchdown, the Jets are going for two.
Following the face mask pull by Babin, the Jets try to score a touchdown on a pass to Plaxico Burress, which is ruled an incomplete pass but Rex Ryan challenges it.
If the ruling is overturned it would be Burress' first catch of the day and would make the score 45-19 in favor of the Eagles.
An obvious unnecessary roughing the passer penalty on Jason Babin as the Jets have 1st and goal for the first time today.
To prevent any injury to Michael Vick, the Eagles put in Vince Young who was ineffective on his first play, getting sacked by the Jets.
After the long scramble and incomplete pass, the Eagles continue to pile on the points on a good run by LeSean McCoy. Poor tackling by the Jets helped contribute to this big run by McCoy. As if this game was not already over, it is safe to say there is a 0 percent chance the Jets come back.

Once again, the Jets go 3-and out as the Jets cannot find a way to get out of the shadow of their own end zone.
Following the incomplete pass on third down, T.J. Conley's punt gives the Eagles the ball back on New York's 39-yard line.
After several odd penalties, the Eagles will punt for the second time today on 4th and 20 to pin the Jets deep in their own territory.
To add insult to injury the Philadelphia Eagles have gotten their second interception of the day off of a tipped pass intended to Santonio Holmes.
On third and nine, the Eagles try a tight end screen to pick up a first down while being in the red zone but Brent Celek failed to pick up the necessary yardage forcing the Eagles to kick a field goal.
And Alex Henery nails the 28-yard attempt.

And after two unsuccessful plays, Mark Sanchez is sacked again by Jason Babin who now has 3 sacks on the day and leads the NFL in sacks with 18.
Two plays later, LeSean McCoy runs into the end zone extending Philadelphia's lead to 21 points and making Eagles history by scoring the most touchdowns in a season.
And on the third play of their first drive of the second half, Michael Vick and Brent Celek connect on a 73-yard pass to get the Eagles on the New York 2-yard line.
After getting one first down an three more unsuccessful plays, the Jets are forced to punt.
It looks as if Mark Sanchez may have hurt his throwing shoulder on the long third down that ended with him on the ground after an incomplete pass to Plaxico Burress. Earlier in the game, Jets outside linebacker put a big hit on Michael Vick literally a half a second after he released the ball. Jason Babin brought Sanchez down to the ground about 5 seconds after he released the ball, which is how Sanchez may have hurt his arm, and no penalty was called.
To get the second half going on the right note, Antonio Cromartie had a great kick return, giving the Jets the ball right outside of their own 40-yard line.
After spiking the ball with two seconds left, the Eagles tried to take a shot at the end zone but came up short when Michael Vick threw up a prayer and was intercepted by linebacker David Harris who chose not to return the interception.
With that interception, the first half has come to an end.

After two failed plays, the Eagles were able to get a big gain, putting the right outside of Jets territory with 16 seconds left in the first half.
Sanchez hit LaDainian Tomlinson on third down but Tomlinson's run after the catch was not enough for the first down, and the Jets will be forced to kick another field goal.
Nick Folk nailed the 28-yard attempt, making it a two-possession game again.
A false start penalty moves the Jets further back on first down. After the penalty, Mark Sanchez tried to hit Dustin Keller in the end zone but Keller was covered forcing him to throw it out of bounds.
On second down, Sanchez connected with Santonio Holmes to avoid the sack. The gain does not do much for the Jets though as it is still 3rd and 12.
The Eagles send the house but the Jets recognize it in time and Jeremy Kerley was able to pick up the much needed first down as we have arrived at the two minute warning.
A touchdown on this drive would be a big boost for the Jets since they would only be down by 9 going into the half and get the ball back to start the third quarter.
Jets go with a fake toss to Shonn Green/dive to John Conner, which gets them a nice gain of 7-yard. A big third and three coming up.
Pool was tackled by Eagles receiver DeSean Jackson, who looked to have hurt himself on the play as he limped around the bench.
