Vick accounts for six TDs in rout
Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles embarrassed the Washington Redskins, spoiling Donovan McNabb’s big contract day with a 59-28 victory Monday night in Landover, Md.
Vick completed his first 10 passes and finished 20 of 28 for 333 yards with four touchdowns. He also ran eight times for 80 yards and two scores, moving past Steve Young and into second place in NFL history for yards rushing by a quarterback.
