Nnamdi Asomugha played despite hyper-extending his knee in pratice this week. His presence wasn't enough to stop Brady and his boys.

Fellow WR DeSean Jackson caught four balls for 73 yards but was apparently benched late in the game after a couple of dropped balls.

Jason Avant actually led the Eagles with eight grabs for 110 yards and a TD. That's worthy of some Brady congratulation.

Young, despite big yardage numbers, still faced some pressure getting sacked twice and having four passes defended.

LeSean McCoy entered Week 12 as the top rusher in the NFL. He remained atop despite a lackluster 31 yards and a score on only 10 carries.

It's worth mentioning that rookie Alex Henery booted two field goals (22 and 43 yards) to extend his consecutive field goal streak to 10 straight.

Patriots coach Bill Belichick is now 4-0 (including a Super Bowl win) over Reid. With Reid's future uncertain he might never get a chance to finally lead his Birds over Belichek's Pats.

Head coach Andy Reid and Young must quickly turn it around, ignore the "Fire Andy" chants that fans shouted late in the game and get prepared for Seattle Thursday night.
