LANDOVER, Md. (AP) - Michael Vick threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, LeSean McCoy ran for 184 yards, and the Philadelphia Eagles unleashed coach Chip Kelly's frenetic offense on the NFL on Monday night with a 33-27 win over the Washington Redskins.

Vick hit DeSean Jackson for a 25-yard TD and Brent Celek for a 28-yard score, then found the end zone himself on a 3-yard run - and that was just the first half. The Eagles led 33-7 late in the third quarter before three Redskins touchdowns made the score respectable.

Perhaps the most remarkable accomplishment by the Eagles: They managed to upstage Robert Griffin III. Griffin threw a career-high two interceptions in a game played eight months to the day since he had major knee surgery.
