CBS Sports8thThat looked like the old Mike Vick on Sunday night. That victory against the Giants could be what gets the Eagles rolling.
FOX Sports6thThe Eagles finally protected Vick in the pocket and only gave up two sacks, one of which was a bailout from Vick to keep the clock running at the end of the game. Combine it with the fact they didn't turn it over at all and you have a good formula for success in Philly.
ESPN.com7thThree wins by a combined total of four points, but it's good for first place, and they didn't turn it over against the Giants.
ProFootballTalk.com9thThis year, Fly, Eagles Fly! will depend on their ability to Run, Eagles Run!
NFL.com9thHow about that Andy Reid (who isn't allergic to the running game after all)? LeSean McCoy got 23 carries and made the Giants pay for Reid's confidence in the ground attack with 123 rushing yards. In total, Philadelphia had 36 running attempts to 30 passes. The play selection was integral to keeping Vick off his back. (Oh, and to the win.)
Yahoo! Sports8thPhiladelphia could easily be 0-4, but good teams find ways to eek out victories. It's amazing what not turning the ball over once per quarter does for your chances of winning a game.
