EAST RUTHERFORD - Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick may have played his last game with the team Sunday.

Vick, who started in place of injured rookie Nick Foles against the New York Giants, threw one interception and one touchdown pass before being pulled in the fourth quarter of a 42-7 loss.

Afterward, Vick didn't seem too anxious to return.

"I don't know," he said. "I just have to take time to think about everything that happened this season and reflect on it. Right now, I just need to get some rest."

Vick is scheduled to make $15.5 million next season as part of the six-year, $100 million deal he signed before the 2011 season. The Eagles can cut him within the next few weeks and not owe him any compensation. If he is still on the roster on Feb. 6, 2013, the date of the upcoming Super Bowl, he would receive a $3 million buyout.

Vick indicated Sunday that he might be willing to restructure his contract for a lower salary, but he also made it clear again that he has no interest in being a backup.

If the Eagles are committed to Foles, Vick would want to play elsewhere.

"I wish all the guys the best in that locker room and we'll see what happens," Vick said.

Vick missed the last six games after suffering a concussion against Dallas on Nov. 11. He was slated to sit out the rest of the season but was pressed into action again when Foles suffered a broken right hand Dec. 23 against Washington.

Vick threw an interception, his 10th of the season, on his first attempt against the Giants but rebounded to throw a 7-yard TD pass to Jeremy Maclin. He completed 19-of-35 passes for 197 yards.

For the season, Vick had 15 turnovers and threw 12 TD passes. The entire team underachieved, finishing 4-12 and in last place in the NFC.

"I can't even say we had ups and downs," Vick said. "It was dismal."

Defensive struggles

The Eagles' defense had another rough outing Sunday.

Giants quarterback Eli Manning tied the single-game record for most touchdown passes thrown by an Eagles opponent with five. Ahmad Bradshaw rushed for 107 yards and a touchdown on just 16 carries. Fellow running back David Wilson added 75 yards on 15 attempts.

Eagles cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha had the worst game of his two seasons with the team. He gave up at least one of the TD passes and was penalized twice for pass interference before being benched in the fourth quarter.

Defensive end Phillip Hunt had the Eagles' only sack. They finished the season with 30 after tying for the league lead with 50 last season.

"This was the worst year of my life," said defensive end Trent Cole, who had just three sacks. "To have a game like that and to have a season like that was rough. It was not fun. But it's over and it's time to throw this season in the trash and move forward."

Lineup changes

Defensive tackle Derek Landri and weakside linebacker Akeem Jordan were in the starting lineup in place of rookies Fletcher Cox and Mychal Kendricks, respectively. Cox and Kendricks missed the game after suffering concussions last week against Washington.

Inside the numbers

The Giants' 21 points were the most allowed by the Eagles in a first quarter since Buffalo had 24 on Dec. 2, 1990. ... The Giants' 35 first-half points were the most scored against the Eagles in one half since Seattle had 35 on Dec. 5, 2005. ... Maclin finished with a team-high seven TD receptions this season.

Bumps and bruises

Linebacker Casey Matthews suffered a concussion in the second quarter and was out for the rest of the game.

Wide receiver Jason Avant was taken to the locker room for X-rays on his foot and knee after the Eagles' first offensive series, but he returned to action.
