Nick Foles started under center for the second straight game in place of the injured Michael Vick and struggled mightily.

He completed 11 of 29 pass attempts for a mere 80 yards, threw zero touchdowns and was sacked three times before succumbing to an injury as well.

The Eagles fell to the Cowboys, 17-3 in the process.

Somewhere in the world, Marcus Vick took this as an opportunity to defend big brother Michael on Twitter when no one asked him to again.

Then came this, and I think you'll understand pretty fast why we blurred out a word...

Apparently, a member of the Vick family told Marcus to put a sock in it after those tweets. He then turned his attention to the action going on around the NFL.

He even had something nice to say about the Redskins, who pulled to within a 1/2 game of the Eagles for second place in the NFC East after their 45-41 win over the Bears Sunday.
