Trailing the New York Giants 31-10 on the road with less than eight minutes left in the game, Michael Vick found a way to come up with one big play after another as the Eagles scored 21 points before Jackson capped off the greatest comeback in the franchise’s history.
Vick hit Brent Celek for a 65-yard touchdown, ripped off a 38-yard run and then scored on a four-yard run, all in less than three minutes.
The pressure fell on the Giants, but there was some pressure riding on Vick’s shoulders as well.
We didn’t know if this was going to be another tease or if he was going to come up clutch.
On 3rd-and-10, from their own 12-yard line with 2:50 remaining in the game, we got our answer. Vick ran to the left for 33 yards to pick up a clutch first down before finishing off the drive with a 12-yard touchdown pass to Jeremy Maclin.
