Anyone who decided to skip the Philadelphia - Washington Monday night game and do something boring like watch the NBA eat dinner with your family is gonna be pretty upset come Tuesday. Michael Vick treated fans to a first-half performance that might go down as one of the most memorable primetime explosions in NFL history as Vick threw for 264 yards and three TDs and ran for another 66 yards and 2 TDs.

The opening play from scrimmage, an 88-yard bomb from Vick to DeSean Jackson, was the longest first play from scrimmage in Eagles history, the 10th longest pass play in Eagles history, the longest play from scrimmage ever against the Redskins, and the longest play in both Vick and Jackson's respective careers.

The Eagles didn't stop there, though, pouring on the points for the entire half, and taking a 28-0 lead into the second quarter, which set the NFL record for biggest lead by a road team in NFL history after one quarter.

Oh yes, and the Eagles posted 280 yards from scrimmage in that first quarter, also an NFL record.

Fortunately, for interest and ratings' sake, the Redskins realized the game had started, and McNabb connected on two long passes to Anthony Anderson and Fred Davis, both of which eventually led to touchdowns for the Eagles. (Expensive ones, too, since McNabb's making a little bit more money now, in case you missed the news about his extension.)

But Washington's attempt to salvage some pride didn't last too long, as Vick kept distributing the ball en route to piling up 45 total points, an Eagles record for points in a half. On the way, nearly everyone got in on the action as LeSean McCoy and Jeremy Maclin both caught touchdowns and even Jerome Harrison scored on a 50-yard scamper.

A less impressive way to look at the 45 points? That ties the record for most points given up by the Redskins in one half, previously set when they lost to the Bears 73-0 way back in 1940.

For those of you who play fantasy football, Vick (who I'm starting in a pair of leagues, *shimmy*), piled up 46 points in standard leagues, and even warranted a hot sticky ... after the first quarter.

And one more for the road: Vick managed to pass Steve Young for second all-time for rushing yards by a quarterback, trailing only Randall Cunningham (who once received a contract extension the night before playing the Redskins; seriously).

Needless to say, there's not a whole lot that could happen in the second half to really shock anyone. Or is there ...

Vic played Great football last night and it just comes to show how well l someone plays when they are only making a million dollars and they are in there last year of there contract.   It's all about the dollars.  Vic has to play every game like its his last game of his humble contract.

really??  1.  vick the falcon was not an nfl qb, he was an awesome athlete in the qb position.  he did not read defenses, and didn't scramble to throw, he just pulled the ball down and ran.  2.  last night was a career performance - the equivalent to the night kobe dropped 77.   it's possible that you may never see another performance of that caliber from him ever again.  anyone can have 1 good game or 1 good season - lets see if he can play like that the rest of his career.  3.  the vick you saw last night is not the same vick that played in atlanta qb intelligence wise, even vick admits that. 

don't misunderstand me last night's performance was awesome and i am extremely happy for him.  it reminded me of the game that farve played on monday night the day after his dad passed away.  it was just his night.  i hope he does continue to his great play, but as a pure fan of the game from atlanta- i would hate for people to actually think that the vick on the field last night played this way when he was in atlanta, because he didn't - he didn't study the films then the way he does now; he didn't practice and work on techniques then the way he does now.  he is a totally different player - vick will tell you that.  heck had he been doing that, he would have been a better qb when he was here, and he would not have had time to be dealing dog fighting rings and what not. 

the whole scandal has served his career well, and he is a better qb for it

As impressive as Vick was in the first quarter, Doug William's second quarter performance against Denver in Super Bowl XXII was even more impressive.  5 touchdowns and a record 356 yards in one quarter , all being down by 10 points in the Super Bowl.  Both are memorable performances, Williams was just a classier QB.
