Vick completed 22 passes for 302 yards and two TD’s while collecting 48 yards and one touchdown on the ground.
“This young man is playing as good as anybody I’ve seen play in the NFL and I’ve been doing it for a while,” Texans coach Gary Kubiak said of Vick. “He’s special and we just tried to contain him, but obviously he still had a big night. He’s been doing it against a lot of people. We had a couple of chances for turnovers. He gave us a couple of opportunities that we just didn’t take advantage of.”

NFL sources believe the Oakland Raiders to have interest in striking a deal with the Philadelphia Eagles for veteran QB Donovan McNabb. The 33-year old still has another year remaining on his contract for $11.2 million. The Eagles are asking for a top 42 draft pick for the former face of their franchise. Oakland is more than willing to give up their 39th overall selection for the 6X Pro Bowler.
McNabb earlier voiced his interest in the Minnesota Vikings if Brett Favre decides to stay out of the picture come September. He also made clear to head coach Andy Reid that he’d prefer to stay in Philadelphia. Despite his initial reactions, McNabb is familiar with Raiders owner Al Davis and offensive coordinator Hue Jackson. Check back for more league updates right here at AceTicket.com!
The Dallas Cowboys finally claimed victory in the playoffs for the first time since December of 1996 Saturday night over the Philadelphia Eagles 34-14 in Arlington, TX. Following a scoreless first quarter the Cowboys really found their rhythm, posting 27 points in the second while holding Philly to just one score.
“It’s just … rewarding,” said QB Tony Romo. “It makes me proud of the guys in there – fighting, grinding, staying committed to the approach. I’m happy for the guys, happy for Wade, happy for Jerry.”
Felix Jones produced a 73 yard run in the third quarter for six, marking the Cowboys final TD of the contest. The Eagles scored again in the fourth but the game was already well out of reach at that point. Dallas is set to play Minnesota in the NFC Divisional Round next Sunday at 1:00 PM.

The Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys will square off this Saturday for the second time in seven days at Cowboy Stadium. Last week Dallas dominated the Eagles 24-0 and earned the rights to call themselves NFC East Division champs in the process. Eagles head coach Andy Reid is certainly looking forward to Saturday’s contest following his team’s lack of production during Week 17.
“They played better than we played,” said Reid. “They coached better than we coached. You get back to business and you do it in a very matter-of-fact way. If you get caught up in all the what ifs and this and that, then you’re making a mistake. We don’t have time for that. It’s a hurried-up week and you have to get right back on the horse and figure out how to not get bucked off again.”
This year the Cowboys have the advantage on the offensive end, as they usually rack up 400 yards per game to Philadelphia’s 358. The Eagles are slightly better defensively, giving up just six fewer yards on average. Cowboys vs. Eagles tickets are now available!
Quarterback Donovan McNabb threw for his 200th touchdown pass and surpassed the 30,000 yard mark as the Philadelphia Eagles went on to defeat the Washington Redskins 27-17 Monday night. The win for Philly was a definite step in the right direction after being stunned last week against the Oakland Raiders.
DeSean Jackson racked up two TD’s in the first half from a 67-yard run and a 57-yard reception that followed. “I was out there having fun, man, honestly,” said Jackson. “My ankle was kind of hurting. I really didn’t feel it, but it did kind of affect my dance a little bit. I could put it to perfection a little bit better than that.”
The Redskins can only look ahead now to their match up with the Atlanta Falcons next Sunday. “You have to take the bitter with the sweet,” said running back Rock Cartwright. “And right now we’re at a bitter moment.”
