Eagles Vs. Patriots: Michael Vick Looking Forward To Playing New England's Defense

The Philadelphia Eagles will get a strong test against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots on Monday night at Gillette Stadium.

Michael Vick is looking forward to the challenge, according to CSNPhilly.com.

"I’m very excited about playing against New England," Vick said. "I’m looking forward to getting out there and playing three quarters, getting into a rhythm, seeing their defense, reacting, and just playing the game and having fun playing the game of football. I’m very excited about that and I can’t wait."

After the starters struggled against the Pittsburgh Steelers in an eventual 24-23 win, Philadelphia still has much to prove in this preseason. None of that is lost on Vick, who wants to see improvements against the defending AFC champs.

"Honestly, we want to go out there and score points," Vick said. "We want to be as precise as we can be with getting in and out of the huddle, the tempo, and just get a feel for where we’re at most importantly.

"I think it’s a good test playing against a good defense. They played in the Super Bowl last year, so we’ll have an opportunity to see where we stand. This is a great game to go out and gauge our performance and see where we’re at."

Vick won't have to wait much longer to find out.
