PHILADELPHIA (AP) When Jeremy Maclin tore a knee ligament in training camp last year, he vowed to play even better when he returned.

Check.

Maclin had an outstanding first half for the Philadelphia Eagles, leading the team with 45 catches, 790 yards receiving, and eight touchdowns. He's a big reason why the Eagles (6-2) lead the NFC East, and he's on his way to cashing in after turning down a multiyear contract for a one-year deal.

Maclin has 18 receptions for 345 yards and four touchdowns in the past two games. He's the first Eagles player and the 13th player in league history to have at least 150 yards and two TDs in consecutive games.
