McNabb throws 200th TD, passes 30,000 passing yards in win over Redskins
LANDOVER, Md. -- DeSean Jackson scored on a 67-yard run and a 57-yard reception, both in the first half. His night might have been perfect if his tender right ankle hadn't messed up his touchdown tap dance."I was out there having fun, man, honestly," Jackson said. "My ankle was kind of hurting. I really didn't feel it, but it did kind of affect my dance a little bit. I could put it to perfection a little bit better than that."
Making The Most Of It
DeSean Jackson had 60+ yards and a TD both rushing and receiving Monday -- and did it with only three touches from scrimmage (1 rush, 2 receptions). Since 1970, that is the fewest touches needed to reach those marks.
• The Eagles improved to 4-2, their best six-game start since 2006 (also 4-2).
• DeSean Jackson scored on a 67-yard reverse and a 57-yard reception. He's the third player with five TDs of 50+ yards through six games, joining Jermaine Lewis ('98 Ravens) and Jim Brown ('63 Browns). He's the second Eagles player with a rushing and receiving TD of 55 or more yards in the same game (Bosh Pritchard, Oct. 23, 1949).
• Donovan McNabb went 15 for 25 for 156 yards with a TD, the 200th of his career. He's the 28th player in NFL history with 200 passing touchdowns.
• The Redskins failed to score more than 17 points for the 10th straight home game, the longest streak since the Colts (11 games) over the 1991-92 seasons and the team's longest streak since moving to Washington in 1937.
