PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Cody Parkey took a leg up on Alex Henery in the Philadelphia Eagles' kicking competition.
Parkey made field goals of 54, 53 and 25 yards to help the Eagles beat the New York Jets 37-7 in the preseason finale Thursday night.
The Eagles (2-2) and Jets (2-2) rested most of their starters and several backups. Michael Vick made a one-play cameo in his first game back in Philadelphia. The four-time Pro Bowl quarterback will start the season as Geno Smith's backup.
Former Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez watched along with starter Nick Foles from the Eagles' sideline.
Parkey's performance increased the rookie kicker's chances of beating out Henery for a roster spot. Henery, a fourth-round draft pick in 2011, was 1 for 3 in the preseason after missing a costly field goal in a 26-24 playoff loss to New Orleans.
Matt Barkley started for Philadelphia and threw for 253 yards and one touchdown and also ran in for a score.
The defending NFC East champion Eagles host Jacksonville in their season opener on Sept. 7. The Jets are home against Oakland.
Parkey, who led the NCAA in touchbacks as a senior at Auburn last year, was 2 for 2 in field-goal tries for Indianapolis before the Eagles acquired him in a trade last Wednesday.
He nailed a 54-yarder right down the middle in the second quarter and hit from 25 right before the half ended. His 53-yarder came in the third quarter. Parkey also had a few deep kickoffs.
Henery made two extra-points and had a pair of touchbacks, but didn't try any field goals.
Vick handed off to Daryl Richardson on the Jets' first play from scrimmage. He was then replaced by Simms. Vick was cheered when he ran onto the field and got more applause when he left. He tipped his visor to the half-empty crowd at the Linc.
Vick resurrected his career in Philadelphia after missing two seasons while serving a prison sentence. He led the Eagles to the NFC East title in 2010, started for the NFC in the Pro Bowl and won the AP Comeback Player of the Year Award. Vick beat out Foles for the starting job in camp last year. But Foles took over after Vick was injured in Week 5 and led the Eagles to the division crown.
Barkley threw a 43-yard TD pass to Arrelious Benn in the first quarter. He ran in from the 7 in the fourth. Barkley was 21 for 33 before giving way to G.J. Kinne, who tossed a 21-yard TD pass to Trey Burton. Wide receiver Damaris Johnson took a shotgun handoff and ran for a 46-yard TD in the fourth.
New York's only score came on Tajh Boyd's 42-yard TD pass to Clyde Gates.
