The Eagles had a 2-point third-quarter lead but weren’t doing much at all to move the ball.

Thanks to a couple of penalties and a tackle for a loss by Jacob Lacey, the Colts' defense got the Eagles into a second-and-26 at the Philadelphia 28-yard line. But Michael Vick chopped it to a third-and-4 at midfield with a-22 yard pass to Jeremy Maclin.

On that play, Vick faked a handoff and made a deep drop a bit to his left. With great protection, he threw a dart to Maclin, over Gary Brackett and in front of Lacey. Maclin had settled in some open territory, then slid a bit toward the sideline and caught the ball at the numbers.

The Eagles converted the third down with a 32-yard scramble by Vick.

They went on to finish a 10-play, 80-yard drive with a 1-yard Vick push up the middle. That gave Philadelphia a 26-17 lead in the early fourth quarter and provided the winning margin in a 26-24 decision.

Houston Texans

Brian Cushing is ready for the move to the middle, says John McClain.

Who has the edge in McClain’s eyes?

Indianapolis Colts

Gary Brackett says emotion isn’t going to beat the Texans, writes Mike Chappell.

Tony Dungy adds prestige to the ring of honor, says Bob Kravitz, and the Colts need to clear a lot of space for other names.

The Colts' offensive line expects a much better performance than in the first game against the Texans, says Chappell.

It’s as close to a must-win as the Colts will have all season, says AP.

Eighteen things to watch for, from Nate Dunlevy.

Jacksonville Jaguars

A very good performance in a blowout of the Cowboys did much to salvage the Jaguars’ season, says Tania Ganguli. Also includes Gene Frenette’s report card.

David Garrard was stellar in his return from a concussion, says Vito Stellino.

A goal-line stand was a big momentum shifter, says Stellino.

Maurice Jones-Drew got going and got over 100 yards, says Ganguli.

If there’s one good thing to say about the inconsistency of these 4-4 Jaguars, it’s that they had the resolve to fight through a lot of negativity, says Frenette.

Frenette and Stellino review the game in this video.

They saved their season, says Vic Ketchman.

Garrard is one of the week’s MVPs, says Shutdown Corner.

Tennessee Titans

San Diego maintained its handle on the Titans, says Jim Wyatt.

The Titans let a big one get away, says David Climer.

Kenny Britt may be out indefinitely, says Jim Wyatt.

A holding call against Michael Griffin swung momentum, says Climer.

Wyatt’s report card.

Philip Rivers was the fourth quarterback to top 300 yards against the Titans.

The Titans defended Donnie Nickey, says Wyatt.

Britt heard a pop, says Terry McCormick.

Jared Cook saw mixed results, says McCormick.

Nick Schommer's film study paid off with a blocked punt, says McCormick.
