Jaguars Fall in Return of Mike Vick 33-32 in Philly

Playing his first NFL game since his release from prison, Michael Vick showcased his impressive skills Thursday night. He played quarterback, ran the wildcat formation, even lined up at wide receiver and completed a pass right-handed.

Oh, by the way, the Philadelphia Eagles beat the Jacksonville Jaguars 33-32 on David Akers’ 34-yard field goal in the final minute.

Vick’s return overshadowed a somewhat sloppy effort by an Eagles team that has Super Bowl aspirations. The three-time Pro Bowl quarterback jogged onto the field for the second play from scrimmage and got a hearty welcome from the notoriously tough Philly fans.

Vick was on the field for six plays—all in the opening 18 minutes. He completed all four of his passes for 19 yards, ran for 1 yard and lined up in the slot for one play.

Donovan McNabb completed 21 of 36 passes for 244 yards and one touchdown. He also threw one interception and his fumble on a backward pass was returned 92 yards for a score by Brian Iwuh(notes).

Jaguars QB David Garrard was 8 for 14 for 93 yards and one interception while leading Jacksonville on one touchdown drive. Backup Todd Bouman also was 8 for 14 for 59 yards.
