Vick needs to play to the level that he did against the Packers – Despite his occasional inaccurate throw, he had a 66.7% completion percentage, which is great. He sparked the offense vs. the Packers with his running ability and rocket passes and finished the game with a QB rating of 101.9. The Lions are not known for their defense and Vick should be able to put up some points.
Don’t let Shawn Hill get into a rhythm– Like the Eagles, the Lions will have to start their backup QB because of injury. Vick is much better than Shaun Hill though. Hill finished the Lions first game with a 38.9 QB rating. As long as we keep pressure on him and limit the easy pass, the Lions will have little offense.
Prevent the big run out of Jahvid Best – The Bears completely shut down Best in the running game only allowing him 20 yards on 14 carries for a 1.4 yard average. His longest run was for 8 yards. Best is a play-maker, and if we can limit him like the Bears did, the Eagles will win.
