Today, Redskins fans across the world resemble so many college kids, who wake up after an all-night bender with their head pounding, rubbing their eyes and going, "Man, what happened last night?"
No, there was very little to enjoy about last night's game, unless, of course, you were an Eagles fan, but Redskins fans can take at least some solace in the fact that one cherished record is still intact. That would be the fact that despite the combined 87 points scored by both teams, Monday night's debacle is nowhere near the highest-scoring game in NFL history.
That honor belongs to this defensively challenged game on November 27, 1966 between the Redskins and Giants at D.C. Stadium (now known as RFK Stadium). The 113 total points scored by both is still an NFL record.
And, of course, the 31-point loss is nowhere near the worst in Redskins history. That honor belongs to this old chestnut:
A look at some of the records the Eagles did set is after the jump.
-The Eagles scored 59 points on eight touchdowns, the second-most of both categories in team history (they scored 64 points on 10 touchdowns on November 6, 1934 against Cincinnati in a 64-0 win).
-The Eagles set team records for most points in a quarter (28) and most points in a half (45). The 45 points allowed in the first half also tied a Redskins team record.
-The 88-yard touchdown pass from Vick to DeSean Jackson was the longest pass of Vick's career. Vick also became the first NFL player ever to throw for at least 300 yards, rush for at least 50 yards, throw for four touchdowns and run for two more. Vick's six total touchdowns scored last night were a career high.
-The 59 points scored by Philadelphia was the greatest number of points scored by one team on Monday Night Football in the program's history. The 87 combined points scored by the two teams is tied for the second-highest point total ever reached on MNF. The record total, of 95 points, still belongs to this game:
