The Last Time the Eagles and Redskins Met...


Ah, it was a crisp autumn Monday evening at FedEx Field. Michael Vick led the Eagles into Washington in hopes of avenging an early season loss to old friend Donovan McNabb. And avenge they did.

You may recall Micahel Vick’s signature game as NFL quarterback. He passed for 333 yards and four touchdowns, while rushing for 80 and running in another two scores to help his team to a 59-28 massacre of the Redskins. It was glorious.

Forget that Jim Haslett’s defense ranks in the top 10 in all major defensive statistical categories. Forget that the Eagles have to win this game to save their season. Forget that there’s a good chance they won’t.

Rather, let’s take a moment to cleanse our minds of this early season debacle and lose ourselves in the brilliant artistry we witnessed that evening last fall. Because come Monday, our memories may be the only thing to get us through a long, long winter.

Check out highlights of that game. After the jump, of course.
