LANDOVER, Maryland (AP) — Michael Vick threw for two touchdowns and ran for another as the Philadelphia Eagles unleashed coach Chip Kelly's frenetic offense on the NFL with a 33-27 win Monday over the Washington Redskins.

At San Diego, Randy Bullock kicked a 41-yard field goal as time expired as the Houston Texans rallied from a 21-point deficit in the second half for a 31-28 victory over the Chargers.

LeSean McCoy ran for 184 yards, while Vick hit DeSean Jackson for a 25-yard TD and Brent Celek for a 28-yard score, then found the end zone himself on a 3-yard run — and that was just the first half. The Eagles led 33-7 late in the third quarter before three Redskins touchdowns made the score respectable.

Robert Griffin III threw a career-high two interceptions for Washington in a game played eight months to the day since he had major knee surgery.

Brian Cushing returned an interception 18 yards for the tying touchdown with 9:30 to play for the Texans, who roared back from a 28-7 deficit late in the third quarter to spoil the debut of San Diego coach Mike McCoy.

Matt Schaub threw a tipped interception on Houston's first play of the season, but recovered to pass for 346 yards and three TDs. He calmly engineered the final 36-yard drive to set up Bullock, who coolly nailed his NFL field goal.

Philip Rivers threw four touchdown passes as the Chargers gave their fans a tantalizing start under McCoy — and an agonizing reminder of last season, when they blew five halftime leads.
