| November 16, 2010 8:00 PM

Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles (6-3) embarrassed the Washington Redskins 4-5), 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 for 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.

The Redskins signed McNabb to a five-year contract extension before kickoff, but the six-time Pro Bowl quarterback threw three interceptions.

The win moved Philadelphia into a first-place tie with the New York Giants in the NFC East, with both teams two games ahead of the Redskins. The Eagles are 4-0 when Vick starts and finishes the game.
