True, the game is at Lincoln Financial Field, but Michael Vick's heart hasn't exactly been at home this season.
Excluding the game in which he went down with an injury against Washington, Vick has played five home games versus six on the road. In those five home games, he has thrown for 500 fewer yards, nearly two fewer yards per attempt and an astounding 11 fewer touchdowns than the six road games.
Most telling perhaps is the discrepancy in Vick’s passer rating, which is more than 20 points higher on the road than at home (109.7 to 89.4).
That said, Vick had one of his best games of the season when thrust into action against Green Bay in the season opener. Albeit a 27-20 loss, Vick excelled in the absence of Kevin Kolb, who was knocked out of the game, throwing for 175 yards and running for 103 more to set the tone for the Eagles offense going forward.
[Note: Thanks to reader Kyle, who informed me of an error. I had originally wrote that Vick had thrown for 175 yards the entire game against Green Bay, implying that he had endured one of his worst games of the season.]
