In handwriting parlance, the New Orleans Saints are an ascender, the Philadelphia Eagles a descender. With a 28-13 victory Monday night, the Saints, who started the season 0-4, have now won three of their last four games. The Eagles, who also are 3-5 overall, by contrast have pretty much crash landed with four straight losses, leading to growing speculation about whether coach Andy Reid will keep his job or Michael Vick will remain the starting quarterback.  To test your knowledge of Week 9 NFL developments, take this 14-question quiz.
