NFL Week 7: What To Watch For

The Eagles have the week off, which means we as fans are free from angst and get to just enjoy a pressure free weekend of football. Of course that doesn't mean we won't have rooting interests. Here's what to watch for in week 7.

Donovan McNabb is only ex Eagles QB without a starting job, also he's the only ex Eagles QB that won't get killed today. Kevin Kolb and A.J. Feeley will both get starts today against the Steelers and Cowboys respectively. Kolb, who has struggled anyway in a subpar Cardinals offense gets the one of best defenses in the NFL. AJ Feeley makes his first start in forever and will lead probably the worst team in football into Dallas, which is a gimme game for the Cowboys.

The only other NFC East team in action is the 3-2 Redskins who are underdogs on the road to the 1-5 Panthers. John Beck will make his first start after the Eagles ended the Rex Grossman era last week.

The games shown locally will be Chargers at Jets (who cares?), Atlanta at Detroit (this was actually switched to WAS at CAR but changed back unfortunately) and finally Green Bay at Minnesota (which will probably be awful).
