Eagles' LeSean & DeSean Go Over 1,000 Yards

The Eagles had a few milestones Sunday that were overshadowed by the ridiculousness of how the game played out. So I thought it would be worth giving these guys their due today.

First, Michael Vick set a career record for rushing TDs in a season. Pretty amazing to think that there are seasons where he ran more and started more games and still didn't have as many rushing TDs as he has this season.

LeSean McCoy went over 1,000 yards, he's the first Eagles back to do so since Brian Westbrook in 2007.

DeSean Jackson went over a thousand yards receiving for the second straight year. He's also got a pretty good shot at setting a career high for yardage. Last year he finished with 1,167. He has 1,024 with two games to play.

Jeremy Maclin caught his ninth and tenth TDs, which is the first time an Eagle has had double digit receiving TDs since Terrell Owens in 2004. His 10 TDs are also tied for the fourth most in team history. Maclin has 890 yards receiving and if he got to 1,000, it would be the first time in franchise history two Eagles WRs were over 1,000 yards in the same year. So far this season he's averaged 63.6 yards per game, so he's got a real shot at it.

Ironically, the closest the Eagles have ever gotten to having two 1,000 yard receivers was just last year when Jackson was over a thousand and Brent Celek had 971 yards.
