Green Bay Packers, still in Super Bowl hunt, meet Eagles again Sunday

Green Bay Packers beat Philadelphia in the first week of the NFL season. Now, in one of this weekend's NFL wild card playoff games, the Green Bay Packers face Michael Vick and the Eagles again. Who's got the edge?

Back in September, the Green Bay Packers inadvertently began the Michael Vick comeback saga by knocking out Eagles starting quarterback Kevin Kolb during a Week One matchup. Vick took over and nearly propelled the Eagles past the Pack before losing, 27-20.

Now, some 3,000 passing yards later, Vick has become an MVP contender, even getting a nod from President Obama for making the best of a second chance after serving prison time for participating in a dog-fighting ring.

Vick will once again lead the (10-6) Eagles against Green Bay (10-6) in an NFC wild card game on Sunday in Philadelphia.

But Vick might not be as mobile versus the Packers, due to a leg injury suffered last Tuesday night against the Minnesota Vikings.
