BRONCOS PREPARE FOR VICK AND THE EAGLES SUNDAY
PHILADELPHIA (AP) – The last time the Philadelphia Eagles faced Peyton Manning, Michael Vick was the better quarterback. Vick and the Eagles (1-2) are 11-point underdogs against Manning and the high-powered Broncos (3-0) on Sunday. Don’t expect Vick or his teammates to be intimidated. In Week 9 of the 2010 season, Vick outplayed Manning in Philadelphia’s 26-24 victory over the Indianapolis Colts. Vick, returning after missing a month following a rib injury, threw for 218 yards and one touchdown, and ran for 74 yards and a score. Manning threw for 287 yards, one TD and two interceptions that day.
COLLEGE FOOTBALL / BUFFS TRAVEL TO OREGON STATE
Corvallis, OR—Neither Colorado coach Mike MacIntyre nor Oregon State coach Mike Riley are sure what they’ll see on Saturday from the Buffaloes. Colorado won its first two games under new head coach MacIntyre. But then deadly flooding around Boulder earlier this month forced the cancellation of a home game against Fresno State. The players chipped in with the recovery efforts before a bye week off. As a result, Colorado will have had a 21-day layoff when the Buffaloes take the field against the Beavers on Saturday at Reser Stadium.MacIntyre has done his best to keep his players focused. The mystery for Riley is what to expect. Because the Buffaloes have only played two games, there’s not a lot of film available to see how Colorado is implementing MacIntyre’s system.
