Vick returns for Eagles against visiting Colts

Jason Peters is due back this Sunday.

The storyline
The Eagles return from the bye to get Michael Vick, DeSean Jackson (possibly) and Jason Peters back from injury. The Colts just try to get through another week without losing a key offensive cog.

Why you should watch
Lest anyone has forgotten how well Vick played the opening month of the season prior to his rib injury, now we get to see for ourselves against a defense that is not particularly fearsome. Peyton Manning, meantime, continues to prove the theory he can take any three schmoes from the corner bar and make them 100-yard receivers.
