Monday Night Football Betting – Eagles vs Saints
2012-11-16

Two teams that were embarrassed last week meet in the Superdome for a Monday Night showdown, as the Philadelphia Eagles visit the New Orleans Saints, in a must win game for both franchises.

The Eagles played one of their more pathetic games against the Falcons last week. Most people think Mike Vick is the problem. “I think there’s a lot of things that I can do better,” he said. “I’m trying to do everything that I can to put the ball in the end zone to give my guys every opportunity”.

“I just don’t think he’s as comfortable as he usually is,” receiver DeSean Jackson told the team’s official website. “A lot of pressure is getting in his face. A lot of defenses are showing different looks and things like that. With the quarterback that has the skill that he’s able to make big plays with his legs and his arms at the same time, I think a lot of teams are just trying to shoot at him, and just come any way possible and just give him less time”.

Opponents have sacked Vick 20 times in the last 7 games; meaning he has no time to see the plays develop down the field.

For the Saints, the idea is to improve on defense as they have looked as one of the worst units in league history.

“On defense it starts with me,” first-year defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo said. “Somehow, some way, I have to get better with my job. I hope everyone else does the same thing. When you add it all up, everybody gets better and the whole defense gets better”.

New Orleans is 1-5 ATS in its last 6 games when playing at home against Philadelphia.
