Video: Rams, Eagles and the big play

By Mike Sando

ESPN's Sal Paolantonio says the Philadelphia Eagles spent the week readying "explosive" plays for their Week 1 game against the St. Louis Rams in the Edward Jones Dome.

As noted Friday: The Rams allowed only five pass plays of 40-plus yards last season, one off the NFL low and 13 fewer than Houston's league-worst mark. The 2010 Eagles completed 15 pass plays covering at least 40 yards, most in the league. Something figures to give here.
