Vick, Foles Lead Eagles Over Panthers

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Michael Vick was nearly flawless, Nick Foles looked sharp and the Philadelphia Eagles' quarterback competition remains close.

Vick and Foles each led the Eagles to touchdown drives in a 14-9 victory over Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers on Thursday night.

No matter who Chip Kelly chooses to run his up-tempo offense, it appears both quarterbacks can operate this system efficiently. Vick and Foles have combined to put up 28 points on eight-plus drives in two games.

Vick, the four-time Pro Bowl pick, has the statistical edge over Foles, the second-year pro. But Kelly hasn't given any indication he's leaning toward one over the other, and he seems willing to wait until after the preseason to pick a No. 1 guy.
