Celek (244) supplanted Keith Jackson for 16th on the team’s all-time reception list. He now trails only John Spagnola (256) and Pete Retzlaff (452) among tight ends ... Celek also tied Jackson for third all-time among Eagles tight ends with his 20th regular season touchdown.

Offensive Quick Hits ... The Eagles' then-go-ahead 17-play touchdown drive was their longest of the season and included two fourth-down conversions and two third-down conversions.

Defensive Nuggets ... The Eagles defense has held opponents to 5-16 in the red zone this season, while limiting passers to a 53.3% completion percentage (96-180).

Birdseed ... T Todd Herremans played in his 100th NFL game.
