By the time Michael Vick had to leave the Eagles-Falcons game, he had been erratic and, at the same time, devastating to his offense and to Atlanta’s defense.

And in the process of leading Philadelphia to a 31-21 lead, Vick got hammered by his own player and had to leave the game with a neck injury. After the game, coach Andy Reid said Vick had suffered a concussion.
Deep in Atlanta territory, the Falcons caught Vick with a corner blitz, and after he releases the ball, Atlanta safety William Moore wrapped him and tackled him to the ground. Problem is, on the way down, Vick’s head connected with the helmet of his tackle Todd Herremans.
It was a sickening collision, and a wobbly Vick had to be helped off the field while spitting out blood. Backup quarterback Mike Kafka, seeing his first NFL action, has replaced Vick -- who got booed off the field as he walked to the locker room by the classy Falcons fans.
