LOS ANGELES (LALATE) – Michael Vick interceptions and turnovers resulted in an Eagles loss at home, to the 1-3 Lions. Michael Vick gave the Lions only their second win of the season on Sunday after delivered two more interceptions. And while Vick’s numbers werenâ€™t as bad as recently troubled quarterback like Mark Sanchez, Vick has still not improved this season, while other quaterbacks have.
Michael Vick went twenty-eight of forty-six on Sunday, passing three hundred eleven yards. His numbers were about as low as Matthew Stafford. But Vick, in delivering two touchdown passes, gave up two interceptions. The Lions had only one turnover Sunday, an interception. But the Vick and the Eagles delivered three turnovers with one lost fumble and two thrown interceptions.
Vick’s running game was good, however. He moved the ball fifty-eight yards on nine carries. But the Eagles had no other rusher with more numbers Sunday. The Lions, in contrast, had Leshoure, Bell and Burleson with a combined one hundred twenty rushing yards Sunday.
Vick’s touchdown passes included a two yard pass to LeSean McCoy in the second quarter. Then in the fourth, he gave a seventy yard touchdown pass to Jeremy Maclin.
And while last Monday’s quarterback discussion was Mark Sanchez, Sanchez brushed off the heat on Sunday with a 9-35 win against the Colts. Sanchez, who has either been dreadful or superb week to week this season, came out on top Sunday. He delivered two touchdown passes, no interceptions, and delivered eleven for eighteen.
But perhaps the reason why the Jets were so good Sunday was not because of Sanchez’s passing. He only passed the ball eighteen times, a total of eighty-two yards Sunday. Rather he relied on Shonn Greene’s rushing. Greene had one hundred sixty-one yards rushing on thirty-two carries along with Joe McKnight’s seventy-one yards.
