Eagles vs. Saints 2012: Game preview, kickoff time, TV schedule and more

Andy Reid's club needs a win in the worst way down in the Big Easy.

The Philadelphia Eagles will be making an appearance against the New Orleans Saints in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on Monday night.

Philadelphia has been struggling mightily in recent times, dropping three consecutive games after starting 3-1. The latest defeat was the most disheartening in some ways, considering it was after a bye week with new defensive coordinator Todd Bowles.

Before getting waxed last Sunday by the Atlanta Falcons, head coach Andy Reid had never lost a game following the team's bye week.

Of course, the other main topic of conversation is the play of Michael Vick. The mobile quarterback has exhibited a proneness to turnovers once again this year, leaving fans and pundits alike to wonder when Reid will bench him in favor of rookie Nick Foles.

The Saints come into the game 2-5 with one of the worst defenses known to man. New Orleans is in its second game under interim coach Joe Vitt, who's taking over for the suspended Sean Payton. Drew Brees is certainly the main weapon on a team that doesn't have much else beyond its passing game.
