[to top of second column]
McNabb finished 16 of 21 and his QB rating of 157.2 was the second-highest in his career. He also had a team-high 30 yards rushing.
The game marked the return of middle linebacker Jeremiah Trotter to Philadelphia. Trotter, a four-time Pro Bowl pick in his first two stints with the Eagles, hadn't played in the NFL since 2007 with Tampa Bay. Trotter wasn't announced as a starter, but ran out of the tunnel to a loud ovation and did his signature ax chop. Then he was on the field for the first play and played on most running downs.
Vick was on the field at QB and wide receiver for six plays that totaled 7 yards before coming in at the end. He finished 1 of 3 for 1 yard and ran twice before kneeling two times.
