Michael Vick set to start against Giants on Sunday: Report

The New York Giants got their first win against the Minnesota Vikings and Josh Freeman Monday night. But if they're going to get their second win in Philadelphia on Sunday, they'll need to handle one of the most dangerous dual-threat quarterbacks in the NFL.

According to a report on Philly.com, Michael Vick, who has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury, is expected to start. Vick was first injured late in the first half of the Eagles' Week 5 win over the Giants at MetLife Stadium when he was run out of bounds. He was replaced by Nick Foles, who came off the bench to throw two TD passes against the Giants to seal the game.

Foles started the last two games, but before leaving Sunday's loss to the Cowboys with a concussion, he had struggled mightily in that game, completing just 11-of-29 passes.

Vick has often been a confounding matchup for the Giants, and he's the kind of quarterback who has given them trouble all season — a scrambler who brings an added dimension to the field. 

Vick ran through the Giants defense for 79 rushing yards in less than a half before exiting in Week 5.
