NY Jets At Philadelphia Eagles Preseason: Michael Vick Plays Only Two Series

Michael Vick started a game for the first time in about four years tonight and before the game Andy Reid indicated that he would likely play the whole first half. As it turned out, Reid saw all he needed to see in two series and Vick was given the rest of the night off.

Vick led the Eagles to a FG on the opening drive, which ended up being the only scoring drive of the game for the Eagles offense. While he was off target on a couple passes, he didn’t turn the ball over and generally looked better than he had in the previous two preseason games. Andy Reid obviously felt there was no point in asking him to play more. Vick finished 3 of 5 for 56 yards. He also rushed for 11 yards and a first down.

Mike Kafka took over from there and really struggled completing just 9 of 27 passes with an INT. He finished with a dismal 26.9 QB rating. So after a great performance last week leading a last minute drive for a win, Kafka lays an egg. Fairly typical for a rookie QB in the preseason.
