JASON PETERS started at left tackle Sunday and seemed to play reasonably well. I'll take "Things that seemed really important around 1 p.m. Sunday that were forgotten by sundown" for $600, Alex. The mystery of Peters' back didn't get much clearer, but even though he sat out the final minutes of the Eagles' blowout loss to Tampa Bay, Peters said he felt fine after the game. Presumably he is a go for Thursday at Detroit. Really, the Eagles could have played Bernadette Peters at left tackle Sunday.

WE WERE WRONG about this team at the start of this season. We were wrong about this team midway through, too. The Eagles are not a mediocre team. A mediocre team is still likely to win the NFC East. They are bad. Unofficially, officially, any measurement you choose to use. Of their four victories, not one has come against a team with a current winning record. Their six losses have come via a smorgasbord of meltdowns. Penalties one week. You can't turn the ball over (fill in the blank)

If there was a play this season that epitomized the notion that some Eagles were giving less than 100 percent for Chip Kelly, it actually didn't come in Sunday's utterly pathetic, 45-17 drubbing at the hands of the Buccaneers, although there were plenty of candidates. It came last week against the Dolphins, a week after the Eagles had beaten the Cowboys and seemingly had momentum for salvaging their season. It came after they had taken a 16-3 lead and as they were driving for what appeared to be another touchdown.

There's a player on the Eagles with a concussion who has not been cleared to play, and his expected absence on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have a major effect on the offense. The player is Ryan Mathews. Although Sam Bradford's concussion captured much of the attention this week, Mathews is also out with a concussion. The Eagles' productive No. 2 running back has not even made an appearance on the sideline during practice, and it does not appear that he will play on Sunday.

Jason Peters returned to the sideline Wednesday, one day after the Eagles' left tackle practiced with the team. Peters has a back injury that affected his quadriceps and caused him to miss the last two games. Coach Chip Kelly said he did not know whether to classify Peters' absence as a "setback. " "That's a good question," Kelly said before practice. "I just know he can't go today. " Peters was not available for comment again on Wednesday. Thursday will be a big indicator of whether he can play Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

THE EAGLES need to run the ball effectively Sunday against Tampa Bay, to take a little pressure off backup quarterback Mark Sanchez, who presumably will make his first start of the season, with Sam Bradford still navigating the NFL's concussion protocol process. There are at least three reasons why this might be a problem, however. 1 Ryan Mathews, the Eagles' most effective back (75 carries, 427 yards, 5.7 yards per carry) is out with a concussion suffered Sunday against Miami.

After missing the last two games because of a back injury, Jason Peters could return to the Eagles' lineup this weekend. Peters practiced with the team on Tuesday. Peters was not available for comment, but Lane Johnson said Peters did more in Tuesday's practice than last week. Johnson is expecting to play right tackle on Sunday against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He has played left tackle in Peters' absence. "My understanding is sooner than later," offensive coordinator Pat Shurmur said of Peters' return.

It was only a matter of time before Sam Bradford was going to get hurt. Whether it was his proneness for injury or having to play behind an offensive line that Chip Kelly neglected this offseason, the concussion and shoulder injuries the Eagles quarterback suffered on Sunday were a fait accompli . Bradford left with a 16-13 lead, and the Eagles lost to the Dolphins, 20-19. Would they have won had he finished the game rather than Mark Sanchez? It's impossible to say, of course.

Running back Ryan Mathews left the Eagles' 20-19 loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday with a concussion. Mathews' last play was a rush for no gain in the third quarter. He finished with eight carries for 18 yards and a touchdown. He also had two catches for 22 yards. Mathews and quarterback Sam Bradford were the two players injured in the loss. Wide receiver Jordan Matthews needed attention from the trainers in the fourth quarter, but he only had the wind knocked out of him. Peters sits out again Left tackle Jason Peters missed his second consecutive game with a back injury that is affecting his quadriceps.

When the Eagles have the ball This matchup appears ideal for the Eagles' rushing offense. The Dolphins allow 142.1 rushing yards per game, second most in the NFL. They surrendered 266 rushing yards last week to Buffalo, including two 100-yard rushers. The Eagles could go for that feat with DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews, who have combined to give the Eagles a potent backfield in recent weeks. The Eagles have averaged 173.3 rushing yards over the last four games. With left tackle Jason Peters questionable entering the game, the Eagles lineup on the offensive line is still undetermined.
