Michael Vick walked gingerly off the field after the final offensive play. After the game, Vick was walking on his own and said the injury is not an issue.

"I'm good," Vick said. "I just got both of my ankles rolled up on. It went away quickly, and I was going to come back in the game."

Vick had his worst game of the season in Thursday's 26-16 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs. He finished 13-of-30 for 201 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions. He rushed for 95 yards, and fumbled once. 

It seemed Andy Reid, who knows Vick's strengths and weaknesses, had a scheme that flummoxed the quarterback. Vick said that wasn't the case.

"I don't think their scheme was that complicated," Vick said. "I don't think they tried to do anything outside of the box. They didn't blitz, and they just sat back and played the way they always play and the way we saw them play other teams on field. That was their scheme, and they did it well."

But it's clear the Eagles offense isn't running the way it did at the beginning of the season. Whether that was the Chiefs or issues with the offense remains to be seen. It will be a long 10 days before they play the Broncos.

"We'll watch the film and figure out what needs to be corrected, and what needs to be done," Vick said. "Coach Kelly is a smart coach and he'll figure something out. We have to start faster, we have to score more points, and we can't leave any stone unturned."
