Rookie quarterback Nick Foles, filling in for injured starter Michael Vick, threw two touchdown passes in the first quarter to lead the Philadelphia Eagles to a 27-10 victory over the mistake-prone Cleveland Browns on Friday night.
With Vick sidelined with bruised ribs, Foles stepped in and played impressively for the Eagles (3-0), who open the regular season in Cleveland on Sept. 9. Foles finished 12 of 19 for 146 yards with one interception.
The Browns (2-1) had two costly turnovers in the first quarter, when they also had a punt blocked. It was not a good showing for their new owner, Jimmy Haslam III, who sat in the stands in the first quarter watching his $1 billion purchase.
Browns rookie QB Brandon Weeden went 9 of 20 for 117 yards.

If I didn’t know any better, I’d swear that Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles was already a five-time pro-bowler and Super Bowl MVP.
Fortunately, I know that he’s just a rookie who has attempted a mere 38 passes in two preseason games during his 15 day career as an Eagle.
But wow, what a 38 pass attempts it has been!
He has completed 24...

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Mike Vick may be nursing sore ribs and have only taken twelve snaps this preseason, but that won’t prevent him from being the team’s starter in Week 1 against the Browns.
After an x-ray revealed no fracture, a CT scan and MRI results also showed no long-term damage to Vick’s ribs. According to head coach Andy Reid on Wednesday,

Will Darren McFadden or Michael Vick make it through 16 games?
Rizzla: Betting on either of these superstars to make it through an entire 16 games seems foolhardy to say the very least. They both present major injury risks but also have the talent to finish as the top option at their position as well as overall in fantasy. I would draft either making sure I had the depth to cover...

When Michael Vick joined the Philadelphia Eagles in 2009 after finishing a 21-month prison sentence, the process of reviving his career seemed a quandary.When the Eagles signed him, though, the initial reaction from fans was a mixture of disbelief conjoined with questioning what exactly the Eagles planned to do with him. Was he going to be strictly a wildcat quarterback? Was he...
He’s only six snaps and two games into the preseason and Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick is already banged up. Almost to the extent that you’d expect mid-season. Vick admitted to reporters that he’s only at about 80% health but hopes to be ready to go for the season opener against the Cleveland Browns.
“I can only do what I can do,” Vick said to USA Today...

Much like the annual August theme in the Atlantic Division regards Florida State returning to its old perch atop the college football landscape, the Coastal beat always begins with a very simple question: Is this finally the year for Virginia Tech?
Its not about winning ACC championships, as the Hokies have four in their near-decade long time in the league, but they havent challenged...
The Eagles started the preseason as a favorite to win the NFC East. Sadly, their success is contingent upon Michael Vick's performance.The mobile quarterback can't seem to stay on the field. Vick left both of the Eagles' preseason games so far with injuries, a serious concern if the Eagles expect him to start all 16 games.Rookie quarterback Nick Foles looks decent and...
