– The Eagles committed double-digit penalties in consecutive games for the first time since December of 2005, when they committed 13 and 10 in consecutive losses to the St. Louis Rams and Arizona Cardinals.

– LeSean McCoy’s 62-yard run in the first quarter was the second longest of his career. He rushed 66 yards for a touchdown in a 40-17 win against the New York Giants on November 1st, 2009.

– Head coach Andy Reid improved to 12-0 after a bye week.

– The Eagles beat Peyton Manning for the first time in four attempts, after suffering embarrassing losses their first three games: 44-17, 35-13, 45-21.

– Michael Vick turned in just the third performance ever by an Eagles’ quarterback in which he passed for 200 yards and a touchdown, and added 70 yards and a touchdown on the ground.

– Peyton Manning became just the sixth quarterback ever to throw at least 50 passes for under 300 yards against the Eagles. The Eagles are 5-1 when this happens.

– Jacob Tamme became the first tight end to ever put up at least 10 catches (11), 100 yards (108), and a touchdown against the Eagles. Only 12 players have accomplished this feat.

– DeSean Jackson’s seven catches are the second highest single-game total of his career. His 109 receiving yards are seventh.

– Asante Samuel recorded the seventh two-interception game of his career. Not surprisingly, his teams are 7-0 in those games.

– The last time the Eagles made a game-saving interception in the final two minutes to seal a victory was just three weeks ago, when Trevard Lindley intercepted Alex Smith on Monday Night Football.

– The Eagles sacked Peyton Manning one time in their three games against him with Andy Reid. Today they sacked him three times.

– And finally… This was the first time in THREE YEARS that the Eagles won a game in which they were trailing at halftime. On November 11, 2007, the Eagles trailed the Redskins 12-7, and won 33-25. Since then, the Eagles had won 29 games. We led at halftime in every one of them. Unbelievable.
