PHILADELPHIA -- The Eagles, as heavy favorites, are doing exactly what they should against the struggling Cleveland Browns on "Monday Night Football."

Philadelphia quarterback Donovan McNabb connected for a 14-yard touchdown pass to Kevin Curtis to complete an eight-play, 64-yard drive to take an early 7-0 lead.

With playoff hopes on the line, the Eagles do not want to let the Browns hang around for a potential upset. It will be interesting to see if Philadelphia puts Cleveland away early.
