Eagles beat Giants

PHILADELPHIA -- Maybe Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid should hint at benching Mike Vick more often.

It seemed to wake Vick from his three-game slumber.

Vick, who struggled in a big way in the Eagles' first three games, looked like the old Mike Vick Sunday night in helping the Eagles beat the Giants. He was sharp, he was accurate and he ran around like the Vick we used to see.

More importantly, he didn't turn the ball over after having nine in the first three games, including six interceptions and three lost fumbles.

Vick drove the Eagles 75 yards to a game-winning field goal by Alex Henry with 1:52 left in the game to lift them to a 19-17 victory at Lincoln Financial Field. They had to hold on for dear life as Lawrence Tynes' 54-yard field-goal attempt fell short.

It was Vick's third fourth-quarter comeback victory this season, giving him 12 in his career.
