Eagles quarterback Michael Vick faces tough task against the Lions defense

Michael Vick expects a challenge from Ndamukong Suh and company as Suh's Lions travel to Philadelphia to face the Eagles this Sunday.

Vick told reporters that he believes the Lions are better than their 1-3 record and last place standing in the NFC North.

"Despite what their record shows, that’s a good football team," Vick said. "If you look all across the board they have good football players over there and it’s going to be a good game. It’s going to be a physical game and they’re going to come to play and we just have to make sure we take care of things on our end."

The Lions defense has caused a league-low three turnovers in four games while Vick has coughed the ball up 11 times himself (6 interceptions, 5 fumbles). Three different Lions have fumble recoveries while the team is yet to record an interception. In other words, something's gotta give.

Vick hasn't forgotten a hotly-contested 35-32 road win against the Lions in 2010. He recalled:

"A tough football game on the road against a team that was up and on the rise, very hungry and trying to make a statement around the league," Vick said. "They’ve gotten better over the course of the past two years and they’re going to continue to get better."

Vick expects a similar challenge this Sunday.
