Vick's 'incredible story' back in prime time

 The Eagles return to prime time on Sunday against the Giants. The game airs on NBC.

Here are some thoughts from NBC's NFL team on the game, plus a video preview below:

AL MICHAELS ON THE EAGLES: “It’s pretty evident at this part of the season that some people, after Monday night, feel this is the best team in the league. If they turn in a performance on any given week like they did Monday night, and you can’t get any better than they were against Washington, than they are one of the teams to beat in the NFC.

MICHAELS ON VICK: “I haven’t seen anything like this in years. He begins the season as the backup, and then he wins the job, and then he gets hurt, and then Kevin Kolb looks likes he’s going to return to the No. 1 role, even when Vick gets healthy. And then here comes Vick and he performs the way he did against the Redskins. It’s really an incredible story.”

TONY DUNGY ON THE GIANTS: “They looked liked a different team (against the Cowboys). This is the team we saw in the first couple of weeks, making mistakes, penalties, getting touchdowns called back. The Giants defense gave up some big plays to Dallas, and Philly has some big-play receivers that they are going to have to worry about.”

RODNEY HARRISON ON THE GIANTS: “They’re still a good team, but the Giants, when they’ve had success, play good defense, apply pressure on the quarterback and create some turnovers. And Eli Manning has to take care of the football.”
