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.
