Michael Vick endured another gridiron beating in the Philadelphia Eagles' Week 3 match-up against Arizona in the desert. The Cardinals' defense battered him with what seemed like a couple dozen hits and recorded five sacks. The most painful of those may have come just before halftime, when the Eagles were just a yard away from the end zone.
With six seconds remaining in the first half and Philadelphia desperately in need of a touchdown, Cardinals safety Kerry Rhodes blitzed and got to Vick without any interference from the Eagles' offensive line. As Vick dropped back to pass and looked to his right, he was completely unaware that Rhodes coming from his left side. Rhodes delivered a crushing hit to Vick that dislodged the ball.
James Sanders, the other Cardinals' safety, was there to recover the fumble and returned it 93 yards for the touchdown, putting Arizona up 24-0 going into halftime. It was one of two fumbles Vick coughed up to Arizona.
Vick wasn't able to muster any points in the second half either as Arizona went on to win 27-6. He finished 17 of 37, 217 passing yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions.
Maybe if he ended up with four turnovers again, the Eagles would have won.
