The good news: The Eagles outgained the Saints on offense, 447-371. The bad news? Where do I start? The offense was 0-5 in the Red Zone, with two field goals, and an interception for a touchdown. Michael Vick threw an interception, fumbled once (which was recovered by Eagles) and was sacked seven times for a minus 48 yards. The Saints had the worst defense in the NFL, yet ramped it up for the hapless Eagles, sometimes outnumbering Vick on the line of scrimmage and coming through untouched. Philly.com is right: The players have given up on Reid. The only player to show enough speed to score (skirt the red zone) was DeSean Jackson, who went 77 yards for a touchdown. He had a nice move at about the 30 yard line to shake a defender. LeSean McCoy was good, too, rushing 19 times for 119 yards. But could never break free totally for a touchdown.

2 quarterbacks, 2 increasingly desperate teams

Michael Vick and Drew Brees came into the NFL the same year. Now, they're in the same predicament. Both are the quarterbacks of increasingly desperate teams, the season teetering on the edge of collapse. Brees has essentially become a one-man show for the New Orleans Saints (2-5), who are plagued by a historically leaky defense and anemic running game. For Vick, the stakes...

Saints 28, Eagles 13

NEW ORLEANS -- So much for players-only meetings. Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick used the occasion of his team's three-game October nosedive to bring his teammates behind closed doors last week in an attempt to hash out their woes. After a 28-13 loss to the New Orleans Saints on Monday night -- the Eagles' fourth consecutive defeat and fifth in six games...

Saints Nation: Defensive and Special Teams Player Grades vs. Eagles

If you had told me before the game that the Saints would sack Michael Vick 7 times and hold the Eagles to 7 points, I would have laughed in your face. If you told me they'd yield 447 yards, I'd absolutely believe you. If you told me both would happen, I'd probably seek to have you institutionalized. But that's exactly what happened oddly enough. Make no mistake, the...

Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints are having fun again. They hope it's a sign of things to come in the second half of the season.
