After an impressive showing against the Buccaneers last week, the Eagles' Nick Foles was completely ineffective in the team's 17-3 loss to the Cowboys. Before exiting the game with a head injury, the second-year quarterback completed just 11 of 29 passes for 80 yards, missing open targets on several occasions and presenting a minimal threat on the ground. Even worse than Foles was his fourth-quarter replacement, rookie Matt Barkley, who threw three interceptions in his brief appearance.

After watching the dismal pair of performances, former Eagles running back and current analyst for CSNPhilly Brian Westbrook said that if opening-day starter Mike Vick is healthy, he should play.

"He won the quarterback competition in camp," Westbrook said. "He gives your offense much more ability to run the football and he's more of a threat."
