Mike Vick turns in strong performance in first start in 4 years
Updated, 5:16 p.m.
In his first start since Dec. 31, 2006, Mike Vick led the Philadelphia Eagles to a 35-32 victory over the Lions in Detroit. Before the game, Coach Andy Reid, according to a Fox report, indicated that Kevin Kolb, who was out today after suffering a concussion last week, would be next week's starter. Should Vick's line Sunday (21-of-34 passing, 284 yards, two touchdowns) cause Reid to reconsider?
For his part, Vick seemed prepared to warm the bench again. "It's not going to be difficult," he said, according to a tweet by CSNphilly.com's Jordan Raanan.
Vick's teammates are prepared to see Kolb in action Sunday against Jacksonville. "He's our quarterback," LeSean McCoy, who rushed for three touchdowns, said. DeSean Jackson, who was his electrifying self for the first time this season, said, "We missed Kolb today."
