QB Michael Vick put up big numbers but he didn't want to see the final result as his Eagles lost to the 49ers 24-23 on Sunday at the Linc.

Vick and the Eagles entered the game losers of two straight. A third-straight loss would mark the first time since the final weeks of the 2006 season that Vick (who was with Atlanta then) had lost three-straight starts.

Vick got things going early finding Clay Harbor for a 16-yard first-quarter TD -- Harbor's second-career score. Harbor wound up hauling in three passes for 55 yards.

LeSean McCoy also hauled in a TD pass -- his second TD catch of the season. Shady hauled in six passes for 34 yards but managed just 18 yards rushing on nine attempts. As for Maclin....?

... Mac caught seven balls for 74 yards. But the key to this game was once again turnovers. The Eagles committed three turnovers including a decisive fourth-quarter fumble by Maclin while the Niners only gave the ball away once.

Vick spread the ball to seven different receivers as he threw for a career-high 416 yards and two TDs on 30-for-46 passing. Vick's favorite target was DeSean Jackson who hauled in six passes for 171 yards.

Vick led the Eagles as well on the ground. He dashed for 75 yards on just eight carries to move within 70 yards of Randall Cunningham's record for rushing yards by a QB (4,928).

Vick's counterpart Alex Smith did it just with his arms throwing for 291 yards and two TDs on 21-for-33 pasing.

Smith did cough up a fumble thanks to his nemesis Jason Babin.

On the day Babin had a career-high three sacks but after the game he was struggling to find answers as to why the defense collapsed late for the third-straight week.
“They made some plays and we didn’t stop them. They had a good plan and they beat us.”

Eagles S Nate Allen had three tackles but he also had trouble keeping up at times. San Fran WR Josh Morgan juked past Allen and everyone else on his way to a 30-yeard TD reception.

Morgan and fellow receiver Michael Crabtree combined for eights grabs for 133 yards.

Normally kickers don't make headlines but with Eagles rookie Alex Henery kicking in front of his predescessor -- and all-time Eagles leading scorer David Akers -- there was sure to be some drama.
Getty Images
Henery wound up missing a 39- and 33-yard field goal. The final miss wound up setting up the 49ers winning drive.
“I was very disappointed. I got off to a good start and those last two misses were my fault.”

Niners RB Frank Gore wound up scoring the winning TD on his way to a 15-carry, 127-yard showing. Not too bad for a guy playing on a bad ankle.

The Eagles are now 0-2 at home this season. And after the Eagles fell behind in this contest, fans showed their displeasure in the Eagles and pride in the team across the street by chanting, "Let's go Phillies!"

Rookie NFl coach Jim Harbaugh got the best of Andy Reid in this one.

Reid was left trying to explain how the Eagles lost despite putting up 513 total yards.
“I have to do a better job as the head football coach. It’s my football team, and I have to do a better job with it.”
