That first meeting, though, sent the Eagles and their fans on a wild quarterback roller-coaster ride. Michael Vick injured his hamstring that afternoon and had to leave the game. Nick Foles came in and performed admirably, leading the Eagles to victory. The next week, Foles had a career day against the Buccaneers, but followed that up with a dud against the Cowboys before suffering a concussion. Now, Vick returns to attempt to right the ship.
The questions, there are many. Is Vick healthy enough to play? Will LeSean McCoy be able to get back on track and lead the offense? Can the Eagles defense force turnovers like they did the first time these teams met?
