Vick made his share of plays on Sunday, completing 28 of 46 passes for 311 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran for 59 yards. That's the type of performance that would ordinarily draw praise, and much of Vick's afternoon was indeed praiseworthy.
But the two interceptions continued a season-long theme of turning the ball over, and he's responsible for 13 of the Eagles' 17 turnovers this season. He did not lose a fumble on Sunday, although he fumbled once.
"I'm just going to continue to try to work on ball security as much as I can," Vick said. "Limit the interceptions. Limit the fumbles."
Vick's best play was a 70-yard touchdown strike to Jeremy Maclin in the fourth quarter when the Lions came with a heavy blitz. Vick read the blitz, found the hot receiver and delivered a perfect pass.
Responsibility for issues on the Eagles offense are not limited to Vick and also should focus on the players in front of him. Vick was sacked three times and hit 11 times on Sunday, part of a season-long hazard of playing behind the Eagles' offensive line.
Vick did not want to blame his blockers on Sunday and defended center Dallas Reynolds, who snapped a ball too soon on a fumble the Lions recovered. But Vick was often getting up after shots that would sideline some quarterbacks and scrambling on plays that would finish with sacks for almost every other quarterback.
With each loss, scrutiny will mount about Vick's job security. He is 10-10 in his last 20 regular-season games and has committed at least one turnover in five of six games this season. His best solution is to win.
