Philadelphia Eagles vs. New Orleans Saints Pick, Prediction, and Odds
Monday Night Football in week 9 of the NFL season is between two teams who have really just failed to live up to big expectations this season. While the New Orleans Saints had many question marks coming into the year with all of the suspensions on their team, the Eagles on the other hand were expected to be at the top of the NFC East this season. The Saints were still expected to push towards a playoff spot and potentially the divisional title in the NFC South. None of this has gone to plan though, as the Saints are 2-5 right now and far behind the 7-0 Atlanta Falcons, while the Eagles are 3-4 and are in a log jam of the NFC East. This game is a Monday kickoff at 8:40pm EST.
The Eagles were throwing around the idea of benching quarterback Michael Vick after he's struggled consistently throughout this season with turnovers. After much debate about potentially putting in Nick Foles, the team decided to stick with Vick. This is a move that I think is the right one, but it's also one that really may not end up mattering much in the long run. The Eagles are going to have to focus on getting the ball to LeSean McCoy if they want to have any chance in this game, as the Saints defense is not very strong, and McCoy is the Eagles' best player.

The Saints are going to air it out, just like they always do, and I'm expecting Brees to put up some big numbers in front of his home crowd on Monday Night Football and prime time television. New Orleans defense may be struggling majorly, but if they can get to Vick it could result in some turnovers which would end up helping out Drew Brees very much when all is said and done. The Saints passing game is one of the best, and if they can even get a little bit of help from the running game they'll be in for a big night on Monday offensively.

I'd love to say that the potential of changing Michael Vick to the back-up would spark this team and Vick, but I don't see it happening. Vick has really struggled to turn it over, and the offense that the Eagles are running hasn't been clicking lately. Andy Reid better have one heck of a game plan to be able to keep up with the Saints offense, or to be able to slow it down. Expect Brees to put up big numbers and to lead the Saints to a win of around 7-10 points when all is said and done, which will be more than enough for a cover here of the -3 spread for the home team.
