Making sense of the Eagles' inactives

Sunday, December 19, 2010, 11:53 AM
Both Asante Samuel and DeSean Jackson will dress for the Eagles today. That's the good news. Right tackle, Winston Justice, is out. That's the bad news. Taking Justice's place at right tackle will be King Dunlap. Look for the Eagles to give Dunlap plenty of help on that side in the form of Owen... Read more

In Week 7 against the Titans, the Eagles entered the fourth quarter with a 16-10 lead.

At just about this time last year, Donovan McNabb was coming off one of his better games of the 2009 season.
