LANDOVER, Md. (AP) — Forget about the contract: The Philadelphia Eagles weren't happy with Donovan McNabb's words. And they were thoroughly upset with LaRon Landry's alleged dirty deeds, both before and during the game.

The best way to handle it? Have Michael Vick and the offense run up the score.

On a day the Washington Redskins hoped to celebrate McNabb's new contract and set aside the swirl of distractions from his benching two weeks earlier, Vick put up some gaudy numbers of his own and the Eagles stormed the party and embarrassed their NFC East rivals 59-28 Monday night.

It was Vick, not McNabb, who played like a $78 million quarterback, accounting for six touchdowns. The Eagles marched down the field in one big chunk after another, putting new entries in the various record books along the way.

Vick became the first player in NFL history with at least 300 yards passing, 50 yards rushing, four passing touchdowns and two rushing touchdowns in a game. He hasn't thrown an interception or lost a fumble this season.

"I've had some great games in my day," Vick said. "But I don't think I've had one quite like this one."
