Which Direction Will the Eagles Attack the Chiefs?

I know that most of you don't get to watch the Philadelphia Eagles play and I know I haven't seen them play a full regular season game since, geez, when they played the Chiefs on Monday Night back in 2005? Is that right?

Anyway, you may have heard that this Michael Vick guys is playing this weekend for the Eagles. Which means that all of the coverage of this game will NOT be about the game but about Michael Vick.

We're talking about which direction the Eagles like to run and pass in and then matching that up with our Chiefs. Naturally, game plans from week to week change and this data is only two weeks. But we'd still like to deliver as much Eagles info as possible, so on Sunday, you can say things before the game like:

You: "Hey guys, did you know that the Eagles have the sixth most rushing attempts up the middle, but are only ranked 27th in yards gained up the middle? Fascinating, isn't it?"

Your non-AP reading buddy: "That's amazing. Where did you learn that stat, guy?"

You: "Arrowhead Pride of course. It's only the #1 Chiefs site on the net."

Yeah, that could be you. If you read this post. More, after the jump.
