Eagles' offense thrashes Jets' defense in final preseason game

PHILADELPHIA -- Cody Parkey made field goals of 54, 53 and 25 yards to help the Philadelphia Eagles beat the New York Jets 37-7 in the preseason finale Thursday night.

The Eagles (2-2) and Jets (2-2) rested most of their starters and several backups. Michael Vick made a one-play cameo in his first game back in Philadelphia. The four-time Pro Bowl quarterback will start the season as Geno Smith's backup.

Former Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez watched along with starter Nick Foles from the Eagles sideline.

Parkey's performance increased the rookie kicker's chances of beating out incumbent Alex Henery for a roster spot. Henery, a fourth-round draft pick in 2011, was 1 for 3 in the preseason after missing a costly field goal in a 26-24 playoff loss to New Orleans.

Matt Barkley started for Philadelphia and threw for 253 yards and one touchdown and also ran in for a score.
