Final Score: New York Jets: 13 - Philadelphia Eagles: 45

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.

As expected, Babin had a big day getting in Mark Sanchez's face while going against right tackle Wayne Hunter.  Babin finished the day with 3 sacks and now leads the NFL in sacks with 18.

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.
