ATLANTA (AP) Michael Vick's return to Atlanta has been a big success.

Vick has his first touchdown run and first scoring pass since his return to the NFL.

Vick scored on a 5-yard run in the third quarter of Sunday's game against the Atlanta Falcons, his former team.

Vick had two carries for 7 yards in the first half for Philadelphia.

Vick, making his first appearance of the second half, replaced starter Donovan McNabb for the third-and-1 play from the Atlanta 5. Vick took the shotgun snap and went straight ahead before diving into the end zone.

Vick, booed in the first half, earned cheers for his first touchdown since Oct. 15, 2006 with Atlanta.

Vick added a 5-yard touchdown pass to tight end Brent Celek in the fourth quarter after fans in the Georgia Dome chanted "We want Vick! We want Vick!" The TD pass gave the Eagles a 34-0 lead.
