It's a day off for us Eagles fans. Just a leisurely day of football without an Eagles game.
I know there's lots of panache that goes with primetime NFL games... but honestly I'd always prefer to play on Sunday afternoon. To me, that's football time.
Anyway... there are some games of importance to the Eagles today. The Giants go on the road to St Louis to face the recently thrashed Rams... Can STL put up any fight?
The Redskins could be in real desperation mode as it's likely 2 NFC East teams will emerge from this weekend 2-0. The Skins host a good looking New Orleans team in what could be described as an early season "must win" for them.
Minnesota was many people's sexy pick to possibly win the NFC... but they're in danger of starting 0-2 with a visit from the Colts looming.
Chicago at Carolina should be an interesting game. The Eagles play Chicago in two weeks so it should be interesting to see if they're as good as they looked against the Colts. Of course, the Eagles hold the Panther's 1st round pick next year... and coming off a big upset on the road against the Chargers, the Panthers are looking to start the year 2-0.
After Dallas, the Eagles will host the Steelers who looked dominating in week one. Sunday night football sees them travel to Cleveland to face what could be a desperate Browns team.
