Michael Vick returns to the Georgia Dome as a starter on Sunday night as the Philadelphia Eagles square off against the Atlanta Falcons in Week 2. The last time Vick played in Atlanta, it was 2009 and he was the third-stringer behind Donovan McNabb and Kevin Kolb. The Falcons fans cheered their former star on as he finished with a touchdown through the air and on the ground.
Vick said earlier this week that he doesn't think he'll get much of a warm reception this time around.
Atlanta, led by quarterback Matt Ryan, is hoping to avoid going 0-2 while the Eagles are looking to notch another win on the road to stay undefeated.
Can the Falcons take down the "Dream Team" at home? Or will the Eagles use their speed to light up the Georgia Dome and move to 2-0? Follow our Sunday Night Football blog for live updates!

They Punted To Jackson
For some reason, Atlanta actually punted to DeSean Jackson (right down the middle). It looked like he had a lane but the Falcons stop him at Atlanta's 45.

Here comes DeSean
The Falcons will have to punt with 15 seconds left. Here comes DeSean Jackson. The Eagles have done this before.....

Atlanta takes a knee and Atlanta burns their last timeout.

Maclin reaches for the pass on the slant route, but drops it and the Eagles will likely go on to lose this game. They only have one timeout.

Kafka throws another screen pass, this time to the right side, to Maclin again but Atlanta stops him behind the line of scrimmage. THEY'RE GOING FOR IT! (they kind of have to.)... after the timeout they just called. 1:45 left in the game.

Kafka rushes for two yards and then throws a screen pass to Maclin for five yards. Big third down coming up after the 2-minute warning. Ball on Atlanta's 21.

McCoy rushes up the middle for the first down. Big conversion for the Eagles. Can Kafka really lead them to a comeback??

3rd And 1
Kafka hits McCoy on a swing pass to McCoy. 3rd and 1 at Falcons 30-yard line.

Kafka Is Heating Up
Kafka stars the drive with two big throws. Two big first downs. And now Philly is in Atlanta territory just like that. Ball on the 39. McCoy gets crushed as he rushes for two yards on first down.
