Vick earned the offensive honor for connecting on 54-of-89 throws for 750 yards and six touchdowns with no interceptions. His 110.2 passer rating is the best in the NFC. The signal-caller took over for an injured Kevin Kolb midway through the season-opening loss to Green Bay, then led the Eagles to a win over Detroit the following week while Kolb sat out with a concussion.
After being named the starter in somewhat controversial fashion, Vick passed for 291 yards and three scores and rushed for another in a 28-3 victory at Jacksonville in Week 3. It was his first career Player of the Month Award.
