Philadelphia Eagles fell along with their hard-hit quarterback Michael Vick in Arizona in week 3 against a dominant Arizona Cardinals determined to bring the East coast birds down. Amid a rash of turnovers and a weak offense, the Eagles struggled to put points on the board until the third quarter when they kicked a 36-yard field goal.
Following narrow one-point wins in Week 1 and 2, Vick complained of a headache and a stomach ache. This week, Vick likely ached all over after the resounding 27-6 loss to Arizona where he was dropped by the defense five times.
As the Birds prepare to face their historic rival, the New York Giants (2-1), this weekend, the team needs a substantial dose of change to cure its shaky-play style and build a robust team fit for the next 13 matches. Here are five areas the Eagles must resolve to emerge from Week 4 in winning shape.
