The Philadelphia Eagles haven't been the team we expected (I'm no longer using the 'D' word when talking about the Eagles, and you're welcome). They are 3-5 at the midway point of the season, and their margin for error to make it into the playoffs is slim. But have the Eagles been dreamy from a fantasy perspective? (Crap, I slipped up already. Dream Team. Dream Team. Dream Team. Now it's finally out of my system.) Michael Vick was right there with Aaron Rodgers in preseason rankings in most fantasy football publications, and ESPN's Matthew Berry said Vick should have been considered with the first overall pick.

Each week, Baltimore Sun reporters Aaron Wilson and Matt Vensel will look back at the previous game of the Ravens and their next opponent. The Ravens will play the Eagles at 1 p.m. on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field. Eagles 17, Browns 16 Strategy: Offensively, the Eagles moved the pocket with quarterback Michael Vick on rollouts and bootlegs off play-action, but Vick displayed poor accuracy and worse decision-making. They had a lot of success running LeSean McCoy to the outside.

Eagles look dreamy Dan Pompei Chicago Tribune If they passed out a Lombardi Trophy to the team that added the most talent since veteran player movement began, it would go to the Eagles. They added the best cornerback on the market in Nnamdi Asomugha, arguably the second best cornerback to change teams in Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, arguably the best defensive end on the market in Jason Babin, arguably the best pass-rushing defensive tackle in Cullen Jenkins, and a QB in Vince Young who has been to the Pro Bowl and has a 30-17 record as a starter.

The Philadelphia Eagles own a 1-4 record, which might come as a surprise given the team's offseason spending spree on free agents and their "Dream Team" billing. But when Washington Redskins players look at the squad, they don't see a team that's already on the ropes. They see the team that came into FedEx Field in Week 10 of the 2010 season — just as the Redskins came off their bye — and embarrassed them with a 59-28 drubbing on national television. "When we think of the Eagles, we think of that game," linebacker Brian Orakpo said.

Philadelphia 38, NY Giants 31 East Rutherford, NJ (Sports Network) - The Philadelphia Eagles have found several ways to deal the New York Giants heartbreaking defeats over the years, and they added another one to the list on Sunday. There was "The Fumble" in 1978, and there was Brian Westbrook's punt return in 2003. On Sunday, with these teams tied for the NFC East lead, it was the electric DeSean Jackson, whose 65-yard punt return on the game's final play lifted Philadelphia to a 38-31 victory over New York in one of the most memorable games in the NFL this season.

Devin Thomas, Michigan State: In breakout junior year, Thomas ranked in top 20 nationally in receptions, receiving yards, all-purpose yards and kickoff return yards. Malcolm Kelly, Oklahoma: Injuries have limited his production and have made some pro scouts skeptical. James Hardy, Indiana: After coming to Bloomington to play both basketball (he's 6-6) and football, Hardy blossomed in making a school-record 16 touchdown catches last season. DeSean Jackson, California: Jackson had 28 TD catches in 36 career games and could be the fastest of the elite receivers in this year's draft.

Even with today's news that Randy Moss plans to come out of retirement, the bumper crop of free-agent wide receivers appears to be thinning out as we learn more about how teams plan to use their franchise tags. The Philadelphia Inquirer is reporting that the Philadelphia Eagles plan to use their franchise tag on DeSean Jackson, one of the NFL's top deep threats, who made 58 catches for 961 yards and four touchdowns in 2011. There is also media speculation that the Kansas City Chiefs may use the franchise tag on Dwayne Bowe and the New Orleans Saints could do the same with Marques Colston if they can avoid using it on Drew Brees.

Eagles DT Brodrick Bunkley vs. Ravens OG Ben Grubbs Bunkley and fellow defensive tackle Mike Patterson have been the keys to Philadelphia's run defense. Bunkley is a load to move in the middle. He plays with power and has agility. He can collapse the pocket. Grubbs has had a solid season. He started out well but has leveled off the past two weeks. The Ravens will need a strong effort from him against Bunkley and for the rest of the season. Edge: Bunkley: Eagles RB Brian Westbrook vs. Ravens linebackers Westbrook is an amazing weapon, but his status is questionable because of an injury.

Matchup: Philadelphia (9-6-1) at Minnesota (10-6), 4:30 p.m. TV: Chs. 45, 5 Line: Eagles by 3 Playoff momentum: The Eagles made one of their patented last-season rushes by winning four of five - after losing, 36-7, to the Ravens in Baltimore - to earn their wild-card spot. The Vikings won five of their past six (the loss was at home to the Falcons) after starting 1-3. Difference-makers: The Eagles are a better team when they give the ball to running back Brian Westbrook (right). Diminutive DeSean Jackson provides big-play potential for Donovan McNabb in the passing game.
