Howard Smith-US PRESSWIRE
This it for Michael Vick. It's his final audition for his job as starting quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles.
When it comes to produce-or-get-benched games, however, Vick couldn't ask for an easier task than shredding a Saints defense that is historically bad through the midway point in 2012. The New Orleans defense is last in yards allowed (474.7/game), 31st in passing yards (304.6/game), last in rushing yards (170.1/game) and 30th in points (30.9/game)
For the Saints to be competitive defensively in this game, it has to start up front.
Protection for Vick has been a major part of the Eagles struggles this season, but getting to the quarterback hasn't exactly been easy for New Orleans. The Saints have to take advantage along the defensive line to keep Vick and a bevy of playmakers in check. Another uninspiring effort will likely mean Vick is still starting for Philly come Week 10.
