Part of what gets me through work every Monday during the fall is coming home and tuning into the Monday night football game. Within the first quarter of tonight's game, Philly looks like a serious Super Bowl contender while I am highly disappointed with tonight's game.

Michael Vick looks amazing. He is tossing the ball with perfection and running effectively. When he is on the mark, Maclin and Jackson become that much more valuable. Throw in McCoy and they probably have the four fastest weapons in the league.

As this game continues to play out, the Redskins have quickly come to life. It is very difficult to come back down 35-0, but if anyone can lead their team to do it, its the new 75 million dollar man. McNabb is an artist when it comes to bringing his team back from a large defeat.

The defense, and all defenses in the league for that matter, will need to rise to the occasion every time Vick comes to town. Learning how to stop him is almost impossible, but learning how to contain him is.

This game is very important when it comes to who will win the three team race that is currently taking place in the NFC East. Neither team has played the Giants yet, and this is their last match up against each other.

With all of that said, it will be interesting to see how the second half will play out and how close, if at all, the 'Skins can come to getting back in this game. It all starts and begins with No. 5.
