Kevin Kolb leaving the game for the Eagles appears to be working to their advantage. Vick led a 60-yard TD drive, with RB LeSean McCoy capping it with a 12-yard TD run.
Vick had the big play on the drive, a 31-yard scramble down the left side. He had a 23-yard scramble on the first play of the second half, two snaps before the fumble. He brings a dimension that Kolb certainly doesn’t. He also completed four straight passes on the drive, all short ones, but completed nonetheless.
LB Brady Poppinga went into the game for LB Brad Jones after the long scramble by Vick. Jones didn’t hold the edge on the left side and was way too far into the middle of the field. We’ll see which LB returns to the field when the Packers go back on defense.
9 plays, 60 yards, 4:12
Packers are up 10 with 4:24 left in the third quarter.
Eagles T Jason Peters has a right knee sprain. His return is questionable.
