Drew Brees threw two touchdown passes, extending his NFL record streak to 51 games, and Patrick Robinson returned an interception 99 yards for a score to lead the New Orleans Saints to a much-needed win, 28-13 over Michael Vick and the reeling Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night.
The Saints (3-5) bounced back from a dismal 34-14 loss at Denver, also got a 22-yard touchdown run from Chris Ivory.
Philadelphia (3-5) lost its fourth straight, which is sure to keep the heat on Vick and embattled coach Andy Reid. Vick threw a 77-yard touchdown pass to DeSean Jackson in the third quarter, but that was about the only highlight for the visiting team.

Now, they're in the same predicament.

The ongoing saga of Michael Vick and what his future holds in Philadelphia got more complicated this week when Marcus Vick decided to spend the extent of Monday Night Football tweeting a defense of his brother and saying he wanted to be traded. Marcus Vick’s entertaining rant, which put the blame on just about everybody but his older brother, led to Michael Vick later apologizing...
Man stop your wining, Michael.
So the media is the cause of the Eagles’ maladies are the media’s fault?

Vick was sacked 7 times against Saints
The Philadelphia Eagles had everything to prove Monday night. Not only to the fans, the city and the owner, but to themselves. After playing poorly last week in a blowout against the Atlanta Falcons, the Eagles held a players-only meeting in hopes of righting a quickly sinking ship. But instead, there will be no need for a rescue effort, as...

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...
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...
