  I am having a basic question in networking?

I read that TCP connection will have a virtual cicuit
(ie)only the first packet will contain destination ip and the
remaining packets will follow the path(pushing of packets)
My question is how the second & the other packets will follow the
(My guess is FCS(frame check sequence) and how the second packet will
follow the path and asking the follow up of first & other packets???)
Help me
Thks in adv
