The Eagles had a statement win over the Colts Sunday and they reached some interesting milestones in doing so.

Michael Vick's 74 rushing yards gave him 4,215 career rushing yards which makes him only the 3rd quarterback in NFL history to record at least 4,200 rushing yards. He trails only Randall Cunningham(4,928 rushing yards) and Steve Young (4,239 rushing yards) for the all time QB rushing lead. He'll easily pass Young this season, but will need to wait until at least next year to catch Randall. Pretty crazy to think that Vick would easily be the all time QB rushing leader had he not went to prison.

The Eagles won their 12th straight game after the bye, which is the longest streak in NFL history. Since the bye was introduced in 1990, the Eagles are 18-4 the week after. That's the best of any team in football.

The Eagles also beat Peyton Manning for the first time and handed the Colts their first November loss since 2007.
