Vick, McCoy Lead Eagles Over Lions For First Victory
Michael Vick took advantage of his first start at quarterback since 2006, looking like the Pro Bowl player he used to be by effortlessly flicking the football down the field and avoiding sacks with slick steps.
Vick’s second touchdown pass put the Philadelphia Eagles ahead just before halftime and they had to hold on to beat the Detroit Lions 35-32 on Sunday.
He didn’t take the first snap in a game the past three seasons because he served an 18-month prison sentence for his role in a dogfighting operation and spent last year as a backup.
Vick said he reflects “all the time” on his journey back onto an NFL field.
