Lions' Comeback Comes Up Short In 35-32 Loss To Eagles

Detroit, MI (Sports Network) - Michael Vick filled in admirably in his first start in almost four years as he tossed two touchdowns to help the Philadelphia Eagles take a 35-32 win over the Detroit Lions at Ford Field.

Vick, starting in placed of an injured Kevin Kolb who suffered a concussion in last week's loss to Green Bay, went 21-for-34 with 284 yards and added seven carries for 37 yards for the Eagles (1-1), who dropped a 27-20 game to Green Bay in the opener at home last week. Vick's last start was on December 31, 2006 when he was with Atlanta.

Kolb, who failed his concussion testing this past week, has been cleared to practice with the team next week. Philadelphia head coach Andy Reid had previously stated that Kolb will be the starter when he is ready to play.

LeSean McCoy had the best game of his career as he scored three on the ground and finished with 16 carries for 120 yards while DeSean Jackson added four catches for 135 yards and a score. Jeremy Maclin caught the other touchdown.

Shaun Hill, making a his first start as a Lion due to Matthew Stafford missing the game with a shoulder injury, went 25-for-45 with 335 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions for the Lions (0-2), who lost to Chicago last Sunday, 19-14.

Rookie Jahvid Best continued to impress as he totaled 232 all-purpose yards and scored three times. He has scored five of Detroit's six touchdowns thus far this season.
