Eagles finally starting to look like they were supposed to; Beat Jets 45-19

LeSean McCoy ran for three touchdowns to set two team records, and the Philadelphia Eagles routed the New York Jets 45-19 on Sunday to stay in the NFC East race.

The Eagles (6-8) have won two in a row for just the second time this season and somehow still have a chance to repeat as NFC East champions despite underachieving most of the year. But they have to catch the Dallas Cowboys (8-6) and New York Giants (7-7).

The loss snapped New York’s three-game winning streak, dropping the Jets (8-6) into a tie with the Cincinnati Bengals for the final wild-card spot in the AFC.

Eagles quarterback Michael Vick threw for 274 yards and one touchdown, and he also ran for a score in his second game back after missing three with broken ribs.

McCoy had 102 rushing yards and surpassed Hall of Famer Steve Van Buren with his 19th touchdown of the season and 16th rushing touchdown.
