How They Match Up Eagles offense vs. Cowboys defense Quarterback Donovan McNabb was sacked and fumbled on the opening play of the first meeting between the teams, and that was a sign of things to come for the Eagles in what ended up as a 38-17 Dallas rout, the Cowboys' most lopsided win in Philadelphia since the 1998 season. After running 19 plays for 113 yards and a touchdown during the next two series, the Eagles' offense ran 27 plays for 92 yards and a field goal on their next five series and fell behind, 35-10, after three quarters.

Today at 1 p.m. Lincoln Financial Field TV: Fox29 Radio:WYSP-FM (94.1) Line: Eagles by 5 1/2 How They Match Up Lions defense vs. Eagles offense As poorly as the Eagles' offense has played so far, Donovan McNabb and Co. still provide the toughest test the Lions will have faced this season. With defensive end Kalimba Edwards hobbled by an ankle injury, McNabb should get ample time to throw. This could be the first time all season the Eagles have some consistent success throwing downfield to wide receivers Kevin Curtis and Reggie Brown.

REDSKINS TE CHRIS COOLEY THE DEFENDERS Depending on the defense they employ, the four Eagles most responsible for controlling Cooley will be linebackers Chris Gocong and Stewart Bradley and safeties Quintin Mikell and Brian Dawkins. ANALYSIS Earlier in the season, tight ends were having so much success against the Eagles that defensive coordinator Jim Johnson joked they were sending limousines to pick them up.

Tucked away in this seemingly innocent story about Donovan McNabb was a very compelling bit of draft news that has yet to become mainstream information. The Eagles may have their eye on an offensive lineman way up the draft board. Jason Smith (6-foot-5, 300 pounds) out of Baylor is considered one of the top offensive linemen in the draft, and there is a strong possibility he'll be selected in the top 10. But apparently that's not stopping the Eagles from taking a look at the converted tight end. A solid pass blocker with experience at both left and right tackle, at least one analyst believes the Eagles could try to use their two [first-round picks]

Ashley Fox had a chat session with newsday.com yesterday. To read the entire transcript, go to http://www.philly.com/eagles Here are some key excerpts: BIGBLUEXLII: Are the Eagles healthy?
