Monday Night Football 1. Michael Vick Steals The Show (300+ Yards Passing & 4 Total TD’s)Having not turned the ball over for only the second time in a game in the 2012 season, Michael Vick showed some signs of promise in Week 8 vs Atlanta.Vick threw for 191 yards and a TD, modest but certainly not pathetic. He gave the Eagles a chance to win, but the Eagles’ porous defense allowed Atlanta to score on their first six possessions.The Dirty Birds were able to pull away and the Eagles trailed the entire game. After all the controversy surrounding Vick’s job this week coming out of Philly, look for the spotlight to be brighter than ever, and Vick will respond in kind. 2. Drew Brees Throws More Interceptions Than Michael Vick (Strange But True..)Although the Eagles' defense looked anemic and inept against the Falcons, Philadelphia does still have a few play-makers on the defensive side of the ball. Nnamdi Asomugha and Kurt Coleman hope to secure the secondary and put the Eagles back on track.Philly has seven INT’s on the season, but look for this number to go up against the Saints. Brees may only throw one or two, but Vick’s night is going to be impressive enough that even Brees throwing one INT will suffice.3. The Eagles Win (Eagles Win and Salvage Their Season)The Louisiana Superdome is one of the toughest places to play as a visiting team in the NFL (especially on Monday Night Football) and the New Orleans Saints have won their previous seven contests on Monday Night Football dating back to 2008.This game has all the makings of an offensive air-raid shootout with both defenses being pathetic lately. The Saints are the worst in the NFL by a mile, and the Eagles just got embarrassed again at home by the Atlanta Falcons, so something has to give in this matchup. Look for the Eagles to come out inspired and playing for their season.  Michael Vick and DeSean Jackson connect on several big plays as the Eagles begin their playoff run with a memorable rout in the Big Easy as Philly prevails.EAGLES 38 - SAINTS 21 This week is likely make or break for the Eagles, a loss on MNF and/or a poor performance from Vick could all but end his era under center in Philly. Vick responds well in times of adversity, this will be yet another example of his ability to do so.One way or the other, fans will know after this game if Vick is still the quarterback in the City of Brotherly Love.
