Looks like Bell supplanted Dunlap
Even with King Dunlap healthy, Demetress Bell appears to have overtaken him for the starting left tackle spot.

Eagles' rookie second-round defensive end Vinny Curry is staying patient and positive despite being inactive for all four games.

Moten hopes to bring nasty attitude to Eagles' special teams
"If you ain't a starter, you've got to be good somewhere," Moten said. "They don't just give out checks around here. I learned it last year with the Colts. Not being a big-name linebacker anymore, it's a job. "I kind of live by [that motto] right now. It can't be my man [to make a big play] on kickoffs. I need to go be a ballhawk and get the ball."

Peters returning for playoffs? There's a chance
There's a chance -- albeit a very small one -- that Jason Peters could return to the Eagles this season.

Eagles will be going after Big Ben
Big Ben came into this season, his ninth in the NFL, having been sacked 314 times. He has been sacked nine times this season, in three games. You know how people here grumble about Michael Vick holding onto the ball too long? That's Roethlisberger's signature. Over the years, he has taken a beating, but he has made it work; the Steelers have won two Super Bowls during his tenure, and they went 12-4 each of the past two seasons, with Roethlisberger sacked 72 times, total.
