*Donovan McNabb’s 45-yard touchdown pass to Reggie Brown was the 2,089th completion of his career, which moved him past Ron Jaworski (2,088) and into first place on the franchise’s all-time list. McNabb trails Jaworski by 2,588 yards, 344 pass attempts, and 10 touchdowns for first place in those respective categories in team history … Meanwhile, McNabb has completed 61.0% of his passes so far this season, which would rank as the second-best completion percentage in a single season in franchise history. McNabb set the team record in 2004 when he completed 64% of his passes … With four TD passes yesterday and no interceptions, McNabb moved past Steve Young (2.168) and into 2nd place in the NFL all-time with a 2.171 career TD/INT ratio behind Tom Brady (2.195).

* Brian Westbrook has accumulated eight career games in which he has scored at least one touchdown rushing and one receiving. The Elias Sports Bureau reports that since 1970, only four players have had more: Marshall Faulk (15), Ahman Green (9), Chuck Foreman (9), and Neal Anderson (9). Former Eagle Wilbert Montgomery and Buffalo’s Thurman Thomas also have eight … Westbrook had two receiving touchdowns in a game for the 4th time in his career and, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, tied Marshall Faulk and Calvin Hill for the most such games by an NFL running back since 1970.

He ranks 2nd in the NFL with 1,219 total yards from scrimmage this year (trailing only Adrian Peterson’s 1,301) and leads the league with 152.4 yards from scrimmage per game … Westbrook moved past Timmy Brown (7,049) and into fifth place on the Eagles all-time list with 7,107 total yards from scrimmage. He trails only Harold Carmichael (9,042), Wilbert Montgomery (8,985), Pete Retzlaff (7,408), and Duce Staley (7,305).

Since the start of the 2004 season, Westbrook has the fewest fumbles (3) among all NFL players with at least 500 touches. Westbrook has 984 touches (719 rushes, 265 receptions) since 2004. He has not fumbled in his last 458 touches, the 2nd-longest active streak, according to the Elias Sports Bureau, in the NFL behind LaDainian Tomlinson’s 478. His last regular season fumble occurred on October 8, 2006 vs. Dallas.

With 5 catches yesterday, Westbrook moved past Fred Barnett (308) and into a tie with Bobby Walston for 6th place on the Eagles all-time receptions list with 311 … With 49 career TDs, Westbrook moved past Pete Retzlaff (47) and Bobby Walston (46) into 8th on the Eagles all-time list … Westbrook’s game-winning, 57-yard touchdown catch was the longest TD reception of his career.

*Philadelphia scored 20 points in the fourth quarter at Washington despite having only 4:33 of possession time … The Eagles have won all 3 games this season when they have scored a touchdown on their first possession (23-5 since 2000) … The Eagles had three touchdown drives of 70 yards or more vs. the Redskins yesterday and now have 11 such drives on the year … The Eagles defended 13 offensive plays (not including penalties and field goals) inside their own 10-yard line and held the Redskins to field goals on two of their four possessions inside the 10.
