Vick's favorite target this year has been DeSean Jackson who has 19 catches, 359 yards, and two touchdowns. His 359 yards are good for second in the NFL behind Atlanta's Julio Jones who has 373 receiving yards. Jackson's 149 yards after the catch is second in the league to Jones' 157 yards. He is tied for the league lead with Pittsburgh's Antonio Brown with seven receptions of 20 yards or more on the year. He will likely line up with former Eagles cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on Sunday in Denver.
One of the things that has helped Vick and Jackson this year is the commitment to the running game and he isn't the only one to benefit.
Eagles' fifth year running back LeSean McCoy has rushed the ball 62 times for 395 yards and two touchdowns through the team's first three games of the season. At that pace, McCoy would rush for 2,106 yards over the course of the 16-game season - which would break the NFL record of 2,105 rushing yards set by Eric Dickerson in 1984. Dickerson only managed 289 yards through his first three games in 1984.
McCoy's 395 rushing yards are the most in franchise history through the first three games of the season beating out Wilbert Montgomery's 346 in 1981. The 395 yards through through Week 3 ties McCoy with NFL Hall of Famer Curtis Martin for 14th-most in NFL history.
The Broncos offense gets a lot of hype but their defense is tough too. They tout the best defense against the run in the league allowing an average of 43 yards on the ground per game. They have played against the likes of Ray Rice, Darren McFadden, and Terrelle Pryor just to name a few - not exactly a group of slouches.
In the defensive backfield, the Broncos can hold their own and will likely look to make life miserable for Michael Vick on Sunday. Denver has intercepted or broken up 20 passes this year which is tied for the NFL lead. Pro-Bowl defensive back Champ Bailey is listed as questionable for Sunday's game with a foot injury and if he plays, that'd be a huge boost for the Broncos defense.
Peyton Manning leads the NFL in every major statistical category including completions, completion percentage, yards, yards per attempt, touchdowns, and quarterback rating. He has completed 73.0% of his passes despite his receivers leading the league in dropped passes.
Wide receiver Wes Welker gets a lot of attention as he should. He is tied with teammate TE Julius Thomas and two others for second in the NFL with four touchdown receptions. Welker has fit right into Denver's offense and is incredibly dangerous but he isn't the most dangerous of Peyton Manning's weapons.
Wide receiver Demaryius Thomas is a matchup nightmare. Thomas stands at 6'3" and 229 lbs. with blazing speed and good hands. He has 20 catches this year for 307 yards and two touchdowns. His 307 receiving yards are the sixth-most through the first three weeks this season and his 1,434 receiving yards last year were fourth in the entire NFL. He will be a problem for the Eagles secondary.
Manning, 37, is playing some of the best of the best football he has ever played in his career. He is 89-for-122 (73.0%) for 1,143 yards, 12 touchdowns, and no interceptions. Manning leads the NFL in every major statistical category including completions, completion percentage, yards, yards per attempt, touchdowns, and quarterback rating. He is going up against a patchwork Eagles secondary that is likely to include a heavy dose of rookie Earl Wolff.
Wolff, 23, could be in line for his first NFL start Sunday against the Broncos as Patrick Chung is dealing with a shoulder injury. The Eagles rookie has played well when called upon as he has 10 solo tackles in the last two games but will have a tall task ahead of him. Wolff will have to try and slowdown Manning, a surefire Hall of Famer, along with his wide receiving weapons of Demaryius Thomas, Wes Welker, and Eric Decker - not to mention tight end Julius Thomas. Wolff is going to have his hands full in the Mile High city.
