Mike Vick is listed as day-to-day, the team confirmed Monday, but having an option like Foles ready to go shows why the Eagles did not feel a need to make any trades during the preseason involving the loser of the quarterback competition.
The Eagles should not get too carried away with picking up their second win in a game that saw the Giants drop to 0-5 on the season, but the defense made plays, special teams did their part and Nick Foles proved why the Eagles felt a need to keep him on the roster despite using Mike Vick as the starter.

A dismal season may be coming to a close but the Eagles are going to bring back LeSean McCoy in hopes of spoiling Washington’s playoff chances.
