Michael Vick Has Another Strong Performance; Should He Start Next Week? (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick had another solid performance on Sunday, leading the Eagles to a 35-32 road victory over the Detroit Lions.

Vick threw for 284 yards, two touchdowns and rushed for 37, adding more fuel to a quarterback controversy in Philadelphia.

Late in the first half on Detroit's 17-yard-line, the Lions almost nailed Vick for a sack. But he made a spin move, scrambled out of the pocket and turned it into a 10-yard gain and a first down. It was one of several stellar plays from Vick.

"He was like a kid in a candy store," coach Andy Reid said of Vick. "He was so excited about getting a second chance at being a starter in this league."

Vick played well in Week 1 after starting quarterback Kevin Kolb was knocked out of the game with a concussion.

The Eagles play the Jacksonville Jaguars on the road in Week 3. Scroll down for video of his performance.
