PHILADELPHIA – Someone’s ‘0’ had to go.
On this Sunday it was Peyton Manning’s, not Andy Reid’s.
Michael Vick threw for 218 yards and one touchdown and rushed for a score with 13:47 remaining to lift the Eagles to a 26-24 victory over the Indianapolis Colts in a penalty marred game at Lincoln Financial Field.
It was Reid’s first win over Manning in four tries. It also made Reid 12-0 in games immediately after the bye.
Vick capped a 10-play, 80-yard drive featuring two coaching challenges at the goal line with a sneak giving the Birds a 26-17 bulge.
Manning rallied the Colts within the final score with 1:50 left. Asante Samuel picked him off for the second time and spun around the field until falling to the turf with six ticks left, and the Eagles ran out the clock to elevate to 5-3 on the season.
The Colts (5-3) had a three-game winning streak snapped.
Until Vick erupted the Eagles offense had gone stagnant after beginning the game with a touchdown thanks to LeSean McCoy’s 62-yard burst and a 9-yard touchdown reception by DeSean Jackson.
When the Eagles weren’t settling for field goals on three straight first-and-goal situations inside the 10-yard line of the Colts, they were watching Manning direct the Colts to overcome a 16-7 first-half deficit.
The Colts took a 17-16 lead into the intermission on Adam Vinatieri with three seconds left.
The Eagles led, 13-0, entering the second quarter.
Jackson caught seven passes for 109 yards and one TD.
