Eagles end on high
PHILADELPHIA — The Eagles played their best football too late.
Michael Vick threw for 335 yards and three touchdowns, including a 62-yarder to DeSean Jackson, and the Eagles beat the Redskins for their fourth straight win.
But Philadelphia missed the playoffs for the fourth time in coach Andy Reid's 13 seasons.
"That's the unfortunate part," Vick said. "…We know what needs to be done. We'll fly under the radar and try to shock people next year."
Reid refused to discuss his future, or if oft-criticized defensive coordinator Juan Castillo will be back.
Meanwhile, in the worst year in Mike Shanahan's 17 full seasons as a coach, the Redskins finished last in the NFC East for a team-record fourth straight year.
