As the Eagles continue to prepare for their first game in the month of October against the Redskins, two players have been rewarded for their stellar play in September.
Michael Vick has been named the NFC offensive player of the month by the NFL. After taking over for an injured Kevin Kolb in week 1 against Green Bay, Vick has played arguably the best football of his career. The Eagles quarterback has completed 54 of 89 passes for 750 yards and six touchdowns, and has yet to commit a turnover. Vick has also taken advantage of his well-known rushing attack, gaining 130 yards and scoring a touchdown on the ground. Vick has a quarterback rating over 100 in each of the first three games this season, the first time he's done so three consecutive times in his career. As a starter, Vick is 2-0 on the season.
MEanwhile, Nate Allen has been named the NFL's defensive rookie of the month for September. In his first month of NFL action, Allen has had a knack for finding the ball. He had an interception against Aaron Rodgers in week 1 against the Packers, and followed that up with an interception against Detroit while covering Lions receiver Calvin Johnson. Through three games, Allen has 11 tackles, one sack and the two picks.
