Post-Game Notebook

Here are some notes following Sunday's win vs. the Redskins:

Sweeping the Skins
- The Eagles swept the season series against the Redskins for the fifth time in the last eight seasons (2002, 2003, 2004, 2006, 2009)
- Andy Reid improved his record to 14-8 against Washington (including 12 of the last 17)

Green Akers- K David Akers went 4/4 on field goals (his 14th career game with four or more) including a game-winning 32-yarder with 1:48 remaining. It was his first game-winning field goal in the final two minutes of a game since his 38-yarder as time expired on 1/7/07 vs. NYG in the Wild Card round of the playoffs
- For his career, Akers has made eight game-winning field goals with under 2:00 remaining in the fourth quarter or in overtime
- Akers extended his streak to 16 consecutive field goals made, which is the second-longest streak in his career (a team-record 17 in 2001)
- Akers has nailed 11 field goals of 40-plus yards this season, the second-highest total of his career (a team-record 17 in 2004) and the most in the NFC this season
- He played in his 167th game as an Eagle, passing Tra Thomas and moving into fourth place in team history
- With 385 PAT attempts in his career, Akers surpassed Bobby Walston (384) for the team record. He now leads the team in all major kicking categories: field goals (254), field goal attempts (309) and PATs made (380)

McNabb Comes Through in the Clutch
- QB Donovan McNabb has now led the Eagles to back-to-back fourth-quarter comebacks, which is the first time the Eagles have done so since 2003 (14-10 win at NYG 10/19/03, 24-17 win vs. NYJ 10/26/03)
- He played in his 143rd game as an Eagle, passing Ron Jaworski for the team record among quarterbacks

Ball Hawkin'- CB Asante Samuel picked up his sixth and seventh interceptions of the season, tying Troy Vincent (seven in 1999) for the highest total by any Eagle under Andy Reid
- It was Samuel's highest interception total since leading the NFL with 10 in 2006
- Samuel has now had six multi-INT games in his career (his teams are 6-0 in those games)
- Samuel's teams are 29-4 in games when he records an interception

D-Jax Digs the Long Ball- WR DeSean Jackson scored his shortest touchdown of the season, a 35-yard reception. He now has eight total touchdowns this season (6 receptions, one rush, one punt return), which is the most since Kevin Curtis had eight in 2007 (six receptions, two fumble recoveries)
- Jackson has eight touchdowns of 35 yards or more this season, which is the most by any player through his team's first 11 games since 1970. The following players each had seven in their team's first 11 games: Baltimore's Jermaine Lewis in 1998, San Francisco's Jerry Rice in 1986, St. Louis' Roy Green in 1984, LA Rams' Harold Jackson in 1973

The Book on the Rooks- WR Jeremy Maclin had five catches for 63 yards, upping his season totals to 42 receptions and 540 yards. He ranks sixth in Eagles history among rookies in receptions and ninth in yards
- RB LeSean McCoy eclipsed the 100-yard mark in total yards from scrimmage (76 rushing, 25 receiving) for the second time in his career. He now has 734 scrimmage yards this season, which is tied with Fred Barnett (1990) the fifth-best total ever by an Eagles rookie
- McCoy's 528 rushing yards this season are the sixth-most ever by an Eagles rookie. He needs 59 more to surpass Correll Buckhalter's team record of 586 set in 2001

- FB Leonard Weaver has a career high 179 rushing yards this season
- RB Eldra Buckley scored his first-career touchdown. He became the 11th Eagle to score a touchdown this season
