RG III returned to action following knee surgery.
The Philadelphia Eagles sealed a 33-27 win over reigning NFC East champions the Washington Redskins at the FedEx Field on Monday night.
The hosts took the lead early in the opening quarter, but struggled to deal with the frenetic pace at which the Eagles were playing under coach Chip Kelly.
Philadelphia made a staggering 77 plays in 60 minutes of football, with quarterback Michael Vick completing 15 of 25 passes for 203 yards and two touchdowns while also running nine times for 56 yards and a score.
LeSean McCoy was also impressive in the win as he had 31 carries for 184 yards, including a 34-yard touchdown while team-mate DeSean Jackson added a further 104 yards on seven catches.
With their no-huddle style of play under Kelly, the Eagles were too much for the Redskins to handle, despite a late fourth quarter comeback which momentarily threatened to ruin the rookie coach’s big night.
However, the visitors held on and upstaged Roberto Griffin III who was playing in his first game back from knee surgery eight months to the day since he went under the knife.
After a slow first half, Griffin was able to pick up his productivity after the break and threw for three touchdowns as he seemingly brushed off any rustiness that he may of had starting the game.
Nevertheless, it was Vick who came away with the win after his fast-paced play set the tempo for the Eagles, and he shared a brief chat with Griffin after the game.
