The New York Giants have very slim playoff hopes entering the NFL's final week and they'll need to get a win at home against the Eagles in Week 17 to even have a chance at the postseason. However, the defense will now need to prepare for Michael Vick, not Nick Foles, under center for Philadelphia.

Not sure if this is good or bad news for Big Blue.

Vick has become very turnover prone and the team was reportedly looking to replace him prior to be sidelined with a concussion.

Foles will miss the game after suffering a broken hand in the team's Week 16 game against the Redskins, according to, making Vick the 'likely' starter.

The Eagles have continued to struggle with Foles at quarterback, but the team didn't look much better this season with Vick. Of course, Vick - who hasn't played since suffering a head injury on November 11th against Dallas - does change the dynamic of the game as a versatile QB who is always a threat to take off and run for first downs and more.
