Day After: Eagles harness DeSean's energy | Eagletarian | 11/21/2011

Re-Focused: Eagles @ Giants, Week 11 |
In a game this big for your season, everything on the line without your starting quarterback, you need someone to stand up and be counted to carry the team. What’s better than one player doing that? How about an entire eight man rotation on the defensive line? Every single player on the Eagles’ defensive line made a contribution this week. Five players registered sacks, including the game clincher from Jason Babin (+4.8). Backups Juqua Parker (+3.9) and Derek Landri (+5.4) both knocked down passes. The octet combined to make 14 defensive stops in the game and did not miss any tackles. The ability to run in such high quality was too much for the Giants’ offensive line in this game.

NFC East Total QBR report - NFL Nation Blog - ESPN
For the game, Young had a Total QBR of 66.9, which is pretty good. It's better, for example, than Michael Vick's 58.1 Total QBR for this season (which ranks 11th in the league among qualifying quarterbacks), and considerably better than the 31.3 Total QBR that Vick posted in the Eagles' Week 3 loss to the Giants.
