Bet on the NFL Michael Vick gets a second chance against the Green Bay Packers this Sunday in the first week of the 2010 NFL Playoffs when the Philadelphia Eagles host the Green Bay Packers. Green Bay finished the regular season in the second spot in the NFC North with a 10-6 record. The Philadelphia Eagles finished off the season with the same record, at 10-6, but with the top spot in the NFC East. Sportsbook lists the Eagels as the slight, minus 2.5 point home favorites with the total over under at 46.5.
The Green Bay Packers are in the playoffs because of their 10-3 win over the Chicago Bears in Week 17.
Aaron Rodgers lead the way with a 1-yard touchdown pass to tight end Donal Lee which gave the Packers the lead in the last quarter, then Nick Collins’ intercepted Jay Cutler, stopping the Bears on a late drive. And with this the Packers secured their playoff berth, the number 6 seed, and the game one against the Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday.
Michael Vick couldn’t be happier as he gets the chance to take on the Green Bay Packers again, as he believes the Eagles never would have lost to the Packers in the regular season opener if he would have been healthy enough to play the whole game. 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 action in nearly four years. When betting on sports note that the Packers might have an advantage against Vick this time because they know they'll be facing him. Defensive coordinator Dom Capers game-planned for Kolb the last meeting. Linebacker Clay Matthews knocked Kolb out of the game with a hard hit, paving the way for Vick.
Also in recent Eagles news, Eagles coach Andy Reid told reporters that middle linebacker Stewart Bradley, who's battling an elbow injury, could be ready to play against the Green Bay Packers in Sunday's NFC Wild-Card Game.
