KEEP AN EYE ON:
Whether or not he's a "coach killer," Atlanta quarterback Michael Vick remains one of the NFL's most unique and dangerous offensive weapons. Until Week 3 of this season, when the Saints beat Atlanta 23-3, New Orleans had never beaten the Falcons with Vick behind center. Atlanta is 5-1 against the Saints when Vick is starting.
Vick has struggled during the Falcons' three-game losing streak, completing fewer than 50 percent of his passes (44 of 93) with three touchdowns, four interceptions and two lost fumbles. But he has run the ball 83 times for 704 yards, a league-leading 8.5 yards per carry. He is on pace to become the first NFL quarterback to run for 1,000 yards in a season. Full Story - Picayune
