The Jets took a 21-17 lead when Brunell returned for a series and hit Holmes in stride in the opening minute of the fourth quarter.
Holmes, the 2009 Super Bowl MVP with Pittsburgh, played because he has to sit out the first four games after being suspended for violating the league's substance abuse policy.
Kellen Clemens started the second half for the Jets and drove them into the end zone on his first series. Danny Woodhead's 14-yard TD run got the Jets within 17-14. Clemens came out for a series after it appeared he injured his arm.
Rookie Mike Kafka replaced Vick in the second quarter, and was intercepted by Emanuel Cook on his second attempt. Cook returned it to the Eagles 15, and Brunell tossed a 2-yard TD pass to Jeff Cumberland to cut it to 10-7.
J.J. Arrington returned the opening kickoff 40 yards. Vick then connected with Riley Cooper for 27 yards on the first play, and ran for 11 more on the next two. But the drive stalled at the Jets 11 and David Akers kicked a 29-yard field goal.
Vick's final pass was dropped by Cooper at the Jets 29, forcing the Eagles to punt.
