Nuggets From Sunday's Win

Here are some news and notes from the Eagles media relations department following Sunday's 24-23 win over the Baltimore Ravens ...

Reid's Records ... According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the Eagles are the first team in NFL history to win their first two games, each by one point. In doing so, Andy Reid improved his record against the AFC North to 9-3-1 and his home record against the AFC to 18-9 ... The Eagles jumped out to a 2-0 record for the first time since 2004 and for the second time under Reid.

Captain Comeback ... QB Michael Vick has engineered back-to-back fourth-quarter comebacks and now helped guide the Eagles to six wins in games they trailed in the fourth quarter ... He threw for 371 yards and one touchdown, marking the second-highest output of his career and his eighth 300-yard passing with the team. He is now tied with Norm Snead for fifth on the franchise's all-time 300-yard passing games list ... It was the second time in Vick's career that he has thrown for 300-plus yards in consecutive games ... Vick also rushed for 34 yards and his 34th career rushing score, a game-winning 1-yarder with 1:55 remaining ... His 71.9 percent completion rate was his second-highest percentage as an Eagle.

Cel Block 87 ... TE Brent Celek led the team with eight catches and a career-high 157 yards, the most by an Eagles tight end since Pete Retzlaff had 204 on November 14, 1965 vs. Washington... Celek moved past L.J. Smith and into fourth place all-time among Eagles tight ends with 235 career receptions. He is also now 16th on the team's all-time list ... Celek has six career 100-yard games.

Action Jackson ... WR DeSean Jackson eclipsed 100 receiving yards for the 14th time in his career, tying Pete Pihos for sixth on the Eagles' all-time list ... Jackson now has 4,632 career scrimmage yards, tying Fred Barnett for 16th in franchise history.

Offensive Quick Hits ... The Eagles have racked up 942 yards of total offense and 51 first downs through two games in 2012 ... The last time the Eagles had two 100-yard receivers in the same game was when Jackson and Celek did so on September 20, 2009 vs. KC ... WR Jeremy Maclin recorded his second touchdown in as many games and now has 21 in his career. Maclin now has 197 receptions, tying Charle Young for the fourth-most by an Eagle in his first four seasons. His touchdown total also ranks fourth.

Defensive Nuggets ... The Eagles defense has held their two opponents to just 535 total yards and 6-27 (22.2 percent) on third downs in 2012, while forcing six turnovers and compiling four sacks. Opponents are just one for four in the red zone this season ... DE Trent Cole picked his 69th career sack, stripping Joe Flacco for a fumble which was recovered by DT Cullen Jenkins and led to an Eagles touchdown ... LB DeMeco Ryans tallied his third-career interception and his 9.5th career sack. The last time he did both in the same game was December 3, 2006 at Oakland. The last Eagles linebacker to do so was Will Witherspoon on October 26, 2009 at Washington.

Shady's Scores ... RB LeSean McCoy scored his 29th career rushing touchdown, passing Wilbert Montgomery for the second-most ever by an Eagle in his first four seasons.
