San Diego @ Philadelphia

Two teams that haven't played since 2001.

Pittsburgh and Cincy play all the time.

Dallas at Seattle is the game I most want to see followed closely by San Deigo at Philly.

Selling points for Dallas at Seattle:

Two teams with a 4-2 record and sole first place ownership square off in what could be a playoff preview. Last years game was classic, when Dallas rallied to beat Seattle with two late tds on MNF. These teams are sporting two of the best offenses in the league. Bledsoe has been stellar and Alexander is scoring touchdowns like its nobody's business! Something has gotta give, I think this one is gonna be a nailbiter and come down to the final drive as almost all of Dallas games have been.

Side Note: Chicago at Baltimore will be a great game if you like watching defensive slugfests.

The Last Time:
It was 2001, but the story wasn't that much different than it is in 2005. Donovan McNabb starred on offense and Brian Dawkins headlined the defense when the Eagles beat the Chargers, 24-14, on Dec. 9, 2001. McNabb threw for 221 yards and a pair of touchdowns, while Dawkins returned a fumble 49 yards for a touchdown. The Eagles advanced to 8-4, giving them good footing for an eventual NFC East Championship.

Lol... You said the teams themselves haven't played since 2001. Not that they haven't played against eachother since 2001. Pete was just being a wise@$$.

Definitely a tie between the SD/PHI game and CIN/PIT. CIN and SD have to prove they're legit and PHI needs to prove they can win with a hurt McNabb. PIT needs to show that they can be a contender in their division.

Tough call...I'd probably give the edge to CIN/PIT since it may decide who wins the AFC North.
Doesn't it suck to get beat at Fantasy Football...by a girl?

I think they proved that already. He got hurt in the 1st game. After that game, here are his stats:

Game 2: 23/29 for 342 yards and 5 TDs
Game 3: 30/52 for 365 yards and 2 TDs, 1 INT
Game 4: 33/48 for 369 yards and 3 TDs, 1 INT
Game 5: 13/26 for 131 yards

Even including Game 5, he averaged over 300 yards passing, 2.5 TDs, and 0.5 INTs and the team was 3-1. Include Game 1, McNabb has averaged 292 yards.

What else does he have to prove? Play on a broken ankle? Oh yeah, he did that a few years ago and won the game. Threw for 4 TDs too. Stay classy!
