PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The Philadelphia Eagles' stale offense needed a couple tweaks to get going. A lucky break and some fresh ideas did the trick.Donovan McNabb threw an 84-yard touchdown pass to Donte' Stallworth, Sheldon Brown returned an interception 70 yards for a score and the Eagles snapped a three-game losing streak with a 27-3 victory over the Washington Redskins on Sunday.
|Scouts Inc.'s take ...|
The Eagles looked fresh coming out of the bye and ended their three-game losing streak with a solid performance against the Redskins. On a wet and windy day, big plays were key for the Eagles as Donovan McNabb (above) hit Donte' Stallworth on an 84-yard touchdown pass off a double move that beat Sean Taylor and Correll Buckhalter scored off a fumble recovery. The Eagles tried to be more balanced on offense and ran the ball as much as McNabb passed it.
The Eagles' defense was on the field too long and had trouble stopping the Redskins' running game, which -- despite losing Clinton Portis early in the first half -- still ran for 146 yards. Jim Johnson brought pressure to rattle Redskins quarterback Mark Brunell. The Redskins' offense continued its struggle to maintain drives, converting on just three of 13 third-down tries. The Redskins' offense is getting very predictable, with Eagles defenders squatting on routes ready to make the tackle as soon as the ball was caught.
Donovan McNabb connected with Donte' Stallworth for an 84-yard touchdown pass in the Eagles' 27-3 win over the Redskins. Earlier this season, McNabb and Hank Baskett partnered on an 87-yard scoring pass.
The last Eagles quarterback with two touchdown passes of 80-plus yards in one season was Ron Jaworski in 1985.• For more Elias Says, Click here
