Recap


Michael Vick passed for 187 yards and two touchdowns while also rushing for 98 yards as the Philadelphia Eagles kicked off their 2011 season with a 31-13 road victory over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday.

LeSean McCoy ran for 122 yards and a score while also catching a TD pass and DeSean Jackson had six receptions for 102 yards and a touchdown for Philadelphia, which nearly had two 100-yard rushers in a game for the first time since Oct. 25, 2002, until Vick took a pair of knees in the final minute.

Steven Jackson gave the Rams a 7-0 lead 3:46 into the game with a 47-yard TD on his first carry of the season. But the star running back made just one more rush before leaving with a strained right quadriceps and did not return.

Vick tied the game three minutes later with a 7-yard pass to McCoy. The Eagles took the lead for good with four minutes remaining in the first quarter as Juqua Parker returned a fumble by Sam Bradford 56 yards for his second career touchdown.

The 2010 Comeback Player of the Year, Vick – who was 14-of-32 – added a 6-yard scoring strike to DeSean Jackson in the third. McCoy capped the scoring in the fourth with a 49-yard run.

Bradford went 17-of-30 for 188 yards before exiting with eight minutes left in the fourth with an apparent finger injury.

Carnell Williams gained 91 yards on 19 carries in place of Steven Jackson and Josh Brown booted a pair of field goals for St. Louis, which has lost 10 of its last 12 meetings with Philadelphia.

Danny Amendola, who led the Rams with 85 receptions last season, exited the game with an arm/wrist injury in the fourth quarter.
