Kolb and Philly end Atlanta's 4 game hot streak, 31-17

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Jeremy Maclin and DeSean Jackson each scored two touchdowns as the Philadelphia Eagles snapped Atlanta's four-game winning streak with a 31-17 victory Sunday.

A head-on collision in the second quarter cost Philadelphia star receiver Jackson, and Atlanta lost cornerback Dunta Robinson, both with head injuries. Jackson dropped a pass when hit by Robinson, who led with his head and hit Jackson in the helmet. Robinson was flagged for hitting a defenseless receiver.

Jackson scored both Philadelphia touchdowns in the first quarter, on a 31-yard run and a 34-yard pass from Kevin Kolb. Maclin made sure his receiving partner wasn't missed after the collision, catching an 8-yard TD pass and also scoring on an 83-yard bomb.

Philadelphia (4-2) ensured it would stay atop the NFC East, while the Falcons fell to 4-2.
