Eagles Vs. Redskins: Michael Vick, DeSean Jackson Hook Up for 88-Yard Touchdown, Take 18 Seconds To Quiet FedEx Field

With all of the excitement in the air at FedEx Field surrounding tonight's game and Donovan McNabb's newly-minted contract extension, it didn't take the Philadelphia Eagles long to suck out all of that air.

Michael Vick hooked up with DeSean Jackson on a bootleg play for an 88-yard touchdown on the opening play from scrimmage to give the Eagles a 7-0 lead over the Redskins just 18 seconds into the game.

Jackson got a step on Redskins safety LaRon Landry and danced into the end zone uncontested for the longest receiving play from scrimmage of his career. Before the game, Jackson and Landry exchanged words (as did the rest of both rosters), so Jackson has already got one over Landry tonight. It also happened to be the longest passing play from scrimmage that the Redskins have ever allowed.

Vick's passer rating with Jackson is a staggering 151.0, the highest QB-to-WR passer rating in the NFL.
