INDIANAPOLIS - It is important to note, at this juncture, that the Eagles very much are a work in progress. They have a quarterback with less than a full season's worth of starts. They are inexperienced on the defensive line. They rebuilt their receiving corps. They addressed the porous defensive secondary, but they could not upgrade it overwhelmingly. They lost three of their top six offensive linemen to injury or suspension, and the offensive line was their best unit.

INDIANAPOLIS - Cody Parkey walked onto the field three seconds and a 36-yard field goal away from a 30-27 win over the Indianapolis Colts, the team's second straight come-from-behind victory to begin the season. Coach Chip Kelly relied on his rookie kicker to seal another double-digit comeback Monday night. Parkey made the field goal for the win, although the Eagles' celebration was halted when the officials awarded the Colts a timeout that they said Indianapolis called right before Parkey's kick.

It's difficult to imagine Cody Parkey as an Eagle if it weren't for the relationship between Howie Roseman and Ryan Grigson. Former Eagles colleagues and frequent trade partners, the two general managers on Aug. 20 had just placed rookies on waivers who would have filled holes on each other's teams. The Eagles needed a kicker, and the Colts had just cut Parkey. The Colts needed a running back, and the Eagles had just released David Fluellen. Realizing the mutual interest, Roseman and Grigson worked out a straight-up deal before Parkey and Fluellen officially went on waivers.

Wide receiver Josh Huff (shoulder) and offensive lineman Matt Tobin (ankle) were declared out for Monday's game against the Indianapolis Colts. Neither played last week or practiced this week. Running back Chris Polk (hamstring), wide receiver Brad Smith (groin), and cornerback Jaylen Watkins (hamstring) are all probable. Polk missed the preseason and season opener, but he could make his debut. The Colts will miss inside linebacker Jerrell Freeman, who is out with a hamstring injury.

IT'S SAFE TO SAY the Colts, who selected Andrew Luck No. 1 overall, would not want to redo the 2012 NFL draft. They have a quarterback to build their franchise around. But betcha the Redskins wouldn't mind a do-over, exchanging oft-injured Robert Griffin III, the No. 2 pick. The Redskins also took Kirk Cousins with the 102nd pick. Their franchise is at a crossroads. Miami might be OK with Ryan Tannehill (No. 8). Cleveland, which took Brandon Weeden at No. 22, definitely wishes it still had the receipt.

ANDREW LUCK phoned Zach Ertz last week and the former Stanford teammates wished each other luck in their season openers. They also discussed meeting up before Monday night's game at Lucas Oil Stadium, where for the first time in each of their burgeoning professional careers they will play as opponents. Luck, the Colts' third-year quarterback, and Ertz, the Eagles' second-year tight end, are rising stars at their respective positions. Their talent was apparent early in each of their careers at Stanford, where they connected nine times for touchdowns in two seasons on the field together, in 2010 and 2011.

Wondering whether to start Drew Brees and A.J. Green, or to bench Geno Smith and Jason Avant? If you're looking for help with your starting-lineup conundrums, read on. Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 1 of the 2014 season.   Watch 'em roll Jay Cutler, QB, Bears vs. Bills. With an explosive array of weapons at his disposal, and a porous secondary in his sights, Cutler should get his season off to a rousing start. Frank Gore, RB, 49ers at Cowboys.

IN THE PAST, some have accused Roger Goodell of dropping the ball when it comes to issuing suspensions. Yesterday, he dropped the hammer. On an owner, no less. The NFL commissioner suspended Colts owner Jim Irsay for six regular-season games and gave him a maximum fine of $500,000 for violating the league's personal conduct policy. That's a bit more than the four-game suspension players such as Eagles right tackle Lane Johnson get for a first-time violation of the league's substance-abuse policy.

The Eagles acquired kicker Cody Parkey from the Colts on Wednesday for running back David Fluellen. Parkey was waived Tuesday night and Fluellen was waived Wednesday morning, although they were exchanged instead before waivers processed at 4 p.m. Parkey, a 22-year-old rookie from Auburn, is 2 for 2 on field goals this preseason with a longest of 45 yards. His strength appears to be kickoffs, and he led college football with 69 touchbacks last season. Parkey was 15 of 21 on field goals as a senior, including 5 of 6 from 40 to 49 yards and 1 of 4 from beyond 50 yards.

Given the fortuitous circumstances of their 45-44 comeback win over the Kansas City Chiefs, you have to figure that the Indianapolis Colts are big believers in luck (hey, they have a horseshoe on their helmets). So it make sense that they would add an extra lucky charm to help their postseason run - and maybe put a jinx on their next opponent, the New England Patriots. On Monday, the Colts signed former Super Bowl MVP Deion Branch, just days before playing the wide receiver's ex-team in the divisional round.
