Vick ready for rematch with Green Bay

PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Michael Vick thought the Philadelphia Eagles would've defeated the Green Bay Packers in the season opener if he played the whole game.

He can prove it now.

Vick and the NFC East-champion Eagles (10-6) will host the Packers (10-6) in a wild-card playoff game next Sunday. It's a rematch of Green Bay's 27-20 win at Lincoln Financial Field in Week 1.

Vick started that game at wide receiver for a gimmick play and finished at quarterback after Kevin Kolb sustained a concussion. Vick was outstanding, nearly rallying Philadelphia from a 17-point deficit. He threw for 175 yards and ran for 103 in his first extended stint in nearly four years.

But he ran out of time at the end.
