PHILADELPHIA -- Pro Bowl running back Brian Westbrook set
Eagles records for catches in a season and total yards from
scrimmage in the first half of Sunday's game against Buffalo.

Westbrook's third reception of the game gave him 89 this season.

a 30-yard catch from Donovan McNabb early in the second quarter.

The crowd gave him a standing ovation when the record was
announced.

the franchise record for yards from scrimmage. Wilbert Montgomery
had 2,006 total yards in 1979. Westbrook entered the game needing 2
yards to set the record.
