Eagles Clinch Berth, End 49ers Playoff Hopes 27-13

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.
