With Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Nick Foles suffering from a head injury and rookie Matt Barkley stinking up the joint with three second-half interceptions against the division rival Dallas Cowboys, the team is in desperate need of a revival at the position.

Luckily, they are expected to have Michael Vick back in Week 8 to retake the starting job.

From Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News:

Vick was having a good season before his hamstring injury, so the team is hoping that he can regain his form and once keep the team in position to challenge for the NFC East title.

The Eagles loss to the rival Cowboys dropped them to second-place, but they are only a game behind with plenty of football left to play.
