|Why To Watch|
It just keeps getting worse for the Eagles. Besides the lingering Terrell Owens suspension, the Cowboys literally added injury to insult when Donovan McNabb aggravated injuries to his abdomen and groin while attempting to tackle Roy Williams on his game-winning interception return Monday night. So instead of Week 11 featuring McNabb-to-Owens, it looks instead as if it will be Mike McMahon, making only his seventh career start and first as an Eagle, to Greg Lewis. Don't look now, but the Eagles could fall to 0-4 in the NFC East.
As bad as New York feels about its loss to the Vikings, the depleted Eagles offer a golden opportunity for Eli Manning & Co. to bounce back. Manning will look to put the worst game of his season behind him, but you can be sure defensive coordinator Jim Johnson will keep the Eagles blitzing in front of him. The question is, will they get there?
After the Cowboys struck for two long pass plays against Eagles' blitzes, you can be sure a point of emphasis for Philadelphia this week in practice will be better timing and execution on their blitzes. Meanwhile, expect the Giants to concentrate on buttoning-up their special teams unit, especially if the Eagles again decide to use RB Brian Westbrook as a punt returner.
