With a 27-13 win over the San Francisco 49ers, the Eagles have advanced to a 10-4 record and have clinched a playoff spot. Although Donovan McNabb and the defense looked shaky at times, there were several bright spots that allowed the Eagles to pull out a win:
DeSean Jackson eclipsed over 1,000 yards for the season with a 140 yard, 1 TD performance. He just barely missed breaking Elroy "Crazy Legs" Hirsch and Devin Hester's single season 50+ yard TD record with an overthrown pass by McNabb.
- Asante Samuel helped with the turnover game, recovering a Sheldon Brown fumble and picking off Alex Smith. The Eagles defense picked off Smith three times over the course of the game.
- Reserve linebacker Tracy White recorded his first career interception and provided good pressure when brought in on passing downs.
Trent Cole recorded two sacks, bringing his season total to 11.5. At the moment, he is tied for 5th most sacks in the NFL with the Colts' Dwight Freeney.
- David Akers had a perfect day, completing both field goals and going 3/3 on extra points. He is currently holds the second-highest scoring total in the NFL behind the Chargers' Nate Kaeding.
