Skip to comments.Four INTs, Fred Jackson's 196 yards help Bills extend Eagles' nightmare (awww, poor Vick)

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Turns out the Buffalo Bills didn't need to actually contain quarterback Michael Vick and the Philadelphia Eagles.
All they had to do was watch and wait for this so-called "Dream Team" to start unraveling all on its own.
Graziano Juqua Parker shouldn't have jumped. Michael Vick's interceptions hurt. But Dan Graziano says it's all Andy Reid's fault in Philly.
At first, the Bills were just a surprise winner. They've since morphed into a serious contender, writes James Walker.
Running back Fred Jackson combined for 196 yards from scrimmage and a touchdown, and linebacker Nick Barnett had two of Buffalo's four interceptions to secure a 31-24 victory Sunday over a slow-starting, underachieving, far-from-elite opponent.
"All week, we talked about getting after Vick," Barnett said. "Containing Vick is a hard job for anybody. We were trying to make him uneasy, make him think too fast."
Barnett returned an interception 31 yards for a touchdown in the second quarter. And he then sealed the victory by picking off Vick a fourth and final time with 1:49 left.

Heh heh heh... One of the young punks in my fantasy league offered me Aaron Rogers in a trade after last week. He wanted Mike Sick from my roster. Cha-ching!! Done deal, and good riddance!
Meanwhile, Tebow should finally get the starting job in Denver.
How long before Andy Reid is fired?
Maybe Andy needs to bring back the pickle juice.
Those who say Tebow can’t play are going to be proven wrong. He may not have the best skills to throw the ball, but there is something inside him that cannot be measured and which makes him a winner.
At the end of that game, I was rooting for Broncos, as if I were rooting for the Gators.
I was at the Packers game last week and there were tons of people calling for Tebow. He deserves a shot. He can’t be any worse than Orton.
Of course, Rodgers & Co. would have put the hurt on Tebow, just like they did on Orton.
The difference is, Tebow can hurt them right back.
At the end of the game, the whole stadium was chanting “TEBOW!!! TEBOW!!!”
Tebow is simply not a regular, throwing quarterback, but did you see when he ran the ball? Even KNOWING he was going to run, he was very difficult to stop. He might be the only QB in the league who needs to run in order to setup his (not so great) passes. Not exactly a wildcat QB either, he is something else. But I think he can be very effective, if he is used properly. Honestly I think he should be in every other offensive down at least, even as a fullback.
Vick is the rare example of a person who’s getting run over both by karma and by dog(ma).
A lot of teams got burned in college thinking that “Tebow Can’t Throw.”
The NFL is about to find out the same thing.
If proper mechanics and a strong arm were a guarantee of NFL success, Ryan Leaf would be in the NFL Hall of Fame.
Tebow did what he could and he made it damn exciting. Just feel bad for Orton because the Tebow shadow is too big not to ignore.
Orton sucks, besides, he’s a big-time lib.
Tebow looks good because no one has game planned for him. When they do, his shortcomings will be glaring. Bank it. He is not NFL material. Sorry.
