The 'Dream Team' Eagles travel away to face Sam Bradford and the St. Louis Rams in Week 1.
In one of the more intriguing matchups of NFL Week 1, the self-anointed 'Dream Team' takes on a team who could easily make the playoffs with a sub-.500 record, as the Philadelphia Eagles travel to take on the St. Louis Rams. Michael Vick will look to start off his MVP campaign with a bang, while fans are interested to see what year two has in store for rising star quarterback Sam Bradford.
A couple of Vick's primary weapons have injury problems, with both Steve Smith and Jeremy Macklin showing up on this week's injury report. Steve Smith is currently listed as questionable with a knee injury, while Jeremy Macklin is listed as probable after recently recovering from a scary illness. Those two and Desean Jackson, who held out of camp until August 8, form a corps of receivers that is deadly in theory, but currently full of question marks.
