Eagles Vs Browns: Michael Vick Feels Urgency To Win

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick on Monday expressed the urgency that he and his teammates feel as the start of the season.

"We feel like there is a need to win, and win quickly," said Vick.

Vick noted the team's absence from the playoffs last season and first-round knockout after winning the NFC East in 2010, and said he hopes the team doesn't make the same mistakes this time around.

"Now, it’s all about seizing the moment -- getting an opportunity and taking full advantage of it," he said.

Despite having the playoffs on his mind, Vick said he is not looking past Philadelphia's Week 1 matchup with the Cleveland Browns. The Browns are dealing with injuries on defense, but the Eagles won't take them lightly.

"They’re doing a lot of different things on defense that they didn’t show in the preseason," Vick said. "They’re a good football team, and we have to make sure we prepare and we study all the looks for when we come out."

Vick and the Eagles begin their 2012-13 season and quest for the playoffs at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday in Cleveland.
