“THE NFL TODAY’s” JAMES BROWN VISITS WITH PHILADELPHIA EAGLES QUARTERBACK MICHAEL VICK FOR
WEEK 2 OF “THE NFL TODAY” ON SUNDAY, SEPT. 16
THE NFL ON CBS, broadcasting its 53rd year of the NFL, kicks off its 2012 NFL season on Sunday, Sept. 16 (1:00-7:00 PM, ET) beginning with THE NFL TODAY (12:00 NOON-1:00 PM, ET).
THE NFL TODAY’s host James Brown previews Week 2’s Baltimore Ravens-Philadelphia Eagles game when he sits down with Eagles quarterback Michael Vick.
Last season, Philadelphia finished a disappointing 8-8. This year, Vick suffered an injury-filled preseason and made headlines saying his team was good enough to become an NFL “dynasty.” That “dynasty” almost became a Week 1 disaster as Vick threw four interceptions against the Cleveland Browns before leading his team on a 91-yard scoring drive to win the game with just over a minute to play.
JB sits down with the former first overall draft pick as Philadelphia prepares for a tough Week 2 matchup to discuss how far Vick thinks his Eagles can soar; his special relationship with Head Coach Andy Reid, whom he considers a “father figure;” and if the injuries he has suffered are finally taking their toll. Deb Gelman is the producer.
Brown hosts THE NFL TODAY along with analysts Dan Marino, Boomer Esiason, Shannon Sharpe and Bill Cowher, NFL TODAY Insider Jason La Canfora, as well as Lesley Visser reporting.
Eric Mann is senior producer and Bob Matina is director of THE NFL TODAY.
Sean McManus is Chairman, CBS Sports and serves as the Executive Producer for THE NFL ON CBS. Harold Bryant is Executive Producer and Vice President, Production, CBS Sports.
