Post-Game Notebook

Here are some notes from Sunday's win over the Buccaneers ...

Century Club ... Eagles head coach Andy Reid won his 100th regular season game, becoming the 34th head coach (fourth active) to do so. He is also the 21st coach to win 100 games with one team, the 16th coach to win 100 games in his first stint, and the first Eagles coach to reach 100 regular season wins.

Green Akers ... K David Akers played in his 160th game as an Eagle, passing Randy Logan for fifth place in team history. He connected on four PATs and now has 366 for his career, passing Bobby Walston (365) for the most in team history. He is now the franchise's all-time leader in field goals (236), PATs (366) and points (1,074).

McNabb's Return ... In his first game back after missing two games with a fractured rib, QB Donovan McNabb completed 16 of 21 passes (76.2%) for 264 yards and three touchdowns for a passer rating of 157.2, which is the second-highest single-game passer rating of his career (158.3 on 9/23/07 vs. Detroit). He now has 199 career touchdowns, and is one shy of becoming the 28th player in NFL history to reach the 200-touchdown milestone.

J-Mac Goes Deep ... WR Jeremy Maclin led the Eagles with six catches for 142 yards and his first two NFL touchdowns. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, he became the first Eagles rookie with two 40-plus-yard touchdown catches in a game (51, 40). The last rookie in the NFL to do so was the Colts' Anthony Gonzalez (57, 40) on 12/9/07 at Baltimore ... Maclin's 142 yards was the third-highest total ever for an Eagles rookie (Don Looney – 180 on 12/1/40 at Redskins; Hank Baskett – 177 on 12/31/06 vs. Falcons) ... Maclin caught his first career touchdown pass, a 51-yarder from McNabb on the opening possession. The Eagles have scored a 50-plus-yard touchdown in all four games this season.

B-West Moving On Up ...RB Brian Westbrook scored his 68th career touchdown, moving past Tommy McDonald (67) and into third place in team history. He trails Harold Carmichael (79) and Steve Van Buren (77). Westbrook also has 5,855 career rushing yards, needing six more to move past Van Buren (5,860) and into second place in team history.

The Ballhawk ... CB Asante Samuel recorded two interceptions, marking his fifth career multi-pick game (first as an Eagle). Samuel's teams are undefeated in those games, and he now has 29 interceptions in his career (seven with the Eagles; three in 2009).

Pink Lightning ...Sporting the all pink cleats in support of Breast Cancer Awareness, FB Leonard Weaver scored on a 20-yard reception from McNabb, his first touchdown as an Eagle and the third receiving touchdown of his career.

King Cole ...DE Trent Cole posted his 38th career sack, and has now brought down the opposing quarterback in four straight games for the first time in his career. He also passed Seth Joyner (37.5) and moved into sixth place on the team's all-time sacks list. He trails Andy Harmon (40.0) for fifth.

Defensive Nuggets ...LB Chris Gocong notched his first sack of the season and the fourth of his career ... CB Sheldon Brown picked up his third interception of the season, which is one shy of his career high (four in 2005). Of Brown's 17 career interceptions, 14 of them have led to an Eagles scoring drive ... DE Victor Abiamiri posted his first sack of the season and the third of his career ... DE Darren Howard tackled Bucs RB Carnell Williams in the end zone for a safety, the first of his career.

Dominant Wins ... In three wins this season, the Eagles have outscored their opponents 105 to 38 and outgained them by an average of 337.3 to 222.7 ... Offensively, the Eagles have scored 33-or-more points in all three wins. Since 2000, the team is 41-2 when scoring 30-or-more points ... Additionally, the defense has forced 11 turnovers and recorded 11 sacks in those games and has not allowed a 100-yard rusher all season.
