The Philadelphia Eagles are 1-0 and the Indianapolis Colts are 0-1, but that's hardly surprising considering their Week 1 opponents. Both teams entered the season coming off promising campaigns in 2013, with the Colts making it to the divisional round of the playoffs. Expectations are higher this season, and both teams will get better looks at where they rank in the NFL after a Monday Night Football tilt at Lucas Oil Stadium.
After falling behind 17-0 to the Jacksonville Jaguars, the Eagles soared back with 34 unanswered points to earn a strong victory in their home opener. Nick Foles shook off a shaky start to accumulate 322 yards passing, two touchdowns and an interception, as the Philadelphia offense tallied 420 total yards of offense. Foles was picked off once in that game after throwing just two picks in 10 starts last year.
The Colts didn't fare as well against the defending AFC champions, as the Denver Broncos rolled to a 31-24 victory that wasn't quite as close as the score indicated. The Colts were down 21 points with fewer than eight minutes remaining but began a comeback bid and scored a pair of fourth-quarter touchdowns; however, it was too little, too late. Andrew Luck threw for 370 yards and two touchdowns in the game, but also tossed two interceptions.

NFL Week 2
Nuts and Bolts
The Colts will have to hold LeSean McCoy, but that might be easier said than done given the health of their front seven. Inside linebacker Jerrell Freeman has already been ruled out and defensive linemen Arthur Jones and Josh Chapman are each listed as questionable.
With a relatively clean injury report, the concern for the Eagles will be the play of Foles, as he struggled in Week 1 against the Jacksonville defense. One year removed from a Pro Bowl season in which he threw 27 touchdowns and just two interceptions, Foles looked rattled for the majority of Week 1 and wasn't particularly great even during the explosive second half for the Eagles.
