Philadelphia 38, St. Louis 3: Since the Redskins and Giants played on Thursday, we're only left with this game. Can't say that I watched the entire game, but I saw enough to be pretty impressed with quarterback Donovan McNabb and his receiving corps.

Playing without starters Reggie Brown and Kevin Curtis, the Eagles torched the hapless Rams through the air. DeSean Jackson, who is being hailed as the savior of the team's passing game against McNabb's wishes, was brilliant in his first game with several tough catches and 106 yards. Greg Lewis and Hank Baskett also had 100-yard efforts and the Eagles rolled.

Are the Rams an awful team? You bet they are. But the Eagles still did what they had to do. Now, we can prepare for a delicious NFC East matchup between the Cowboys and Eagles. As we got closer to the season, more and more people picked the Eagles to win the division. This game won't decide the season, but it could be a great indicator of things to happen. Plus, it's Philly's last trip to Texas Stadium.

I don't know about you guys, but I'm ready to witness a competitive game.
