The Philadelphia Eagles routed the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31-20 on Sunday with Nick Foles turning in an impressive performance while filling in for injured QB Mike Vick. Vick suffered a hamstring injury last week against the New York Giants and Foles replaced him, guiding the Eagles to a victory.

Vick took a pay cut this season in order to remain with the Eagles this season, playing under rookie head coach Chip Kelly.

  • Vick is the Eagles starting QB and will start when healthy! Hopefully Vick will be ready for Cowboys and ends all this annoying concocted controversy. Foles had protection and looked good, however he wasn't under any real pressure except when he was sacked! His trade value went up and he's a great back up QB for right now and eventually will be a starter in the NFL! With that said Vick is still the man and gives Eagles the best chance to win!!
  • It's only a matter of time before Vick get hurt worse because he refuses to slide when scrambles. That stubborn attitude willbe his downfall in the end.
