McNabb, Maclin Lead Way In Win

Donovan McNabb threw for three scores and the defense chipped in three sacks and three interceptions as the Eagles rolled to a 33-14 win over Tampa Bay.

Rookie Jeremy Maclin hauled in pair of touchdown receptions (51 and 40) while catching six passes for 142 yards. Fullback Leonard Weaver added a touchdown catch and Brian Westbrook ran for another score as Philadelphia improved to 3-1.

Maclin's 142 receiving yards were the third-highest total by an Eagles rookie in a single game. Maclin's total Sunday trails only Hank Baskett (177 yards in 2006) and Don Looney (180 in 1940).

Defensively, Asante Samuel and Sheldon Brown combined for three interceptions and Jeremiah Trotter made his triumphant return, playing 20 snaps.
