Michael Vick On Interceptions: 'It's All For The Right Reasons'

The Eagles are 2-0 but it hasn't come easy through the first two weeks of the season. Philadelphia needed touchdowns in the final two minutes of the fourth quarter to edge out the AFC North's Browns and Ravens. The focal point of the Eagles start has been quarterback Michael Vick, who's thrown six interceptions through the first two weeks. Vick threw four picks in Cleveland to open the season, and had a fifth go right through Browns' linebacker L.J. Fort's hands in the end zone on Philly's final drive. Vick addressed the interception problem on 97.5 The Fanatic (via Brad Gagnon of Sports Radio Interviews)

"Interceptions are bad but the thing is, I know why I throw my interceptions. It's not like I'm throwing the ball blind to the left corner of the field - I did it once against Cleveland, I'll be honest, because I'm a realist and I tell it like it is. But sometimes you just try so hard, it's all in good faith. It's all for the right reasons."

Despite the four-interception day, the versatile quarterback converted when called upon, hitting Clay Harbor for the game-winning touchdown. Against Baltimore, he punched it in from one yard out to give Philly the lead with less than two minutes.

Vick and the Eagles will now hit the road in Week 3 to face a Cardinals defense that stifled Tom Brady and the Patriots.

Michael Vick Nominated For 'Never Say Never Moment' Award

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick has been nominated for the NFL's "Never Say Never" Moment of the Week. Vick is being rewarded for his Week 3 effort that helped the Eagles defeat the Baltimore Ravens, 24-23, at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday.

Vick, who finished the game 23-for-32 for 371 passing yard and two touchdowns (one passing and one rushing), scored the game-winning touchdown with 1 minute, 55 seconds left. The score capped a 10-play, 80-yard drive that started with just under five minutes left to play.

The march helped the Eagles earn its second straight one-point victory, a feat never before accomplished by an NFL team in the first two weeks of the season.

Vick's heroics, however, were a bit overshadowed by him throwing two interceptions and being charged with a fumble after rookie running back Bryce Brown botched a handoff earlier in the game.

Eagles Place Jason Kelce On Injured Reserve, End His Season

Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce has officially been placed on the injured reserve list and will miss the remainder of the regular season, Eagles' lead journalist Dave Spadaro is reporting via Twitter. The news comes a day after Kelce learned he completely tore his MCL, an injury he suffered during Sunday's 24-23 victory over the Baltimore Ravens.

Kelce, the Eagles' 2011 sixth-round pick, appeared to be in pain after Ravens' safety Ed Reed landed on his leg during a LeSean McCoy third-quarter run. In his place, the Eagles turned to Dallas Reynolds (6'4, 320 pounds) who served on the team's practice squad the past three seasons.

Steve Vallos (6'3, 312) has been signed by the Eagles to replace Kelce on the roster. Vallos, 28, was a seventh-round draft pick by the Seattle Seahawks in 2007. Vallos spent two seasons in Seattle before being signed by the Cleveland Browns last year. Vallos failed to make the Eagles' initial 53-man roster as he was released at the end of preseason training camp.

Eagles Vs Ravens Review: Ugly? Yes. Sweet? HELL YES!

It wasn't always pretty, and it may have come at a price, but the Eagles manufactured more late-game heroics and pulled out a gutsy win against the Baltimore Ravens to move to 2-0. In the process, they announced themselves as a legitimate contender in the NFC, and a team that can beat the elite even when they aren't playing their best.

Jason Kelce Injury: Eagles Center's Status Still Unclear

Philadelphia Eagles center Jason Kelce has a complete tear of his MCL and a partial tear of his ACL, according to Eagles head trainer Rick Burkholder. This is a bit of good news as it was largely assumed that Kelce had suffered acomplete tear of his ACL, which would have ended his season.

This development creates an interesting situation for Kelce and the Eagles as the second-year center could potentially return this season depending upon how severe the partial tear of his ACL is. If he doesn't need surgery, he will miss up to six weeks while waiting for the MCL to heal. If he requires surgery on the ACL, he will be done for the year.

It will be determined on Tuesday following a scope of his knee whether surgery will be required. Head coach Andy Reid already announced that Dallas Reynolds will be filling in at center while Kelce is out.

Eagles Vs Ravens Final Score: Michael Vick Leads 2nd Straight Comeback As Eagles Win 24-23

Two weeks in a row, the Eagles have put themselves in a hole with a rash of turnovers... and two weeks in a row Michael Vick has bailed them out with a big 4th quarter comeback as the Eagles beat the Ravens 24-23 to move to 2-0 on the season.

With just under 5 minutes left, Vick led the Eagles on a 10 play, 80 yard drive that he finished himself with a 1 yard TD run. The Eagles defense then held on for a major statement win in week 2.

Vick finished the day 23/32 (his best completion percentage as an Eagle) for 371 yards, 1 passing TD and 1 rushing. Overall, he was clearly seeing the field better and looked much more comfortable in the offense, despite the fact that he was under pressure and hit just as much as last week.

Vick was charged with 3 turnovers in this game, but it's important to look at what they actually were. The first was clearly his fault, a bad pick where he threw across his body on the run. Not a good decision. The second was charged to him when rookie RB Bryce Brown botched a handoff. It was clearly on the RB, but those plays get charged to the QB. No fault there. The third was an interception that came after a very catchable ball went off Brent Celek's hands and into those of Ed Reed. The ball could have been a bit lower, but really not a lot of blame on Vick.

While the story of the season so far for the Eagles offense is turnovers, the same is true for the defense. They forced 4 turnovers last week and got another 2 off Joe Flacco this afternoon. The first came off a Trent Cole strip-sack and the second was a DeMeco Ryans INT.

The 2-0 Eagles next head to Arizona to face the surprisingly 2-0 Cardinals, who just pulled off the upset of the week with a win over the Patriots in New England.

Jason Kelce Injury: Eagles Center Leaves Ravens Game With Knee Sprain

Philadelphia Eagles Center Jason Kelce has left Sunday's game against the Baltimore Ravens with an injury to his knee, and will not return. The injury is officially described as a 'knee sprain' by the Eagles. Kelce was replaced by Dallas Reynolds, a 28-year-old out of BYU.

Kelce went down after Ravens' safety Ed Reed struck the center in the knee and it bent awkwardly. The second-year player out of Cincinnati started all 16 games of his rookie season in 2011.

The backup, Reynolds, has played in four career games, with one start.

The Eagles struggled early against the Ravens, but have since come back. After falling down 17-7 following a series of turnovers, Philadelphia has clawed back and now trails 17-14 and are driving deep into Ravens territory.
