Philadelphia Eagles (5-2)
Grade: B

What they’ve done well: Sometimes the best thing that can happen to a team is to get hit in the face. Instead of pounding the pitiful Raiders in Week 6, the Eagles sat there and took a 13-9 beating. Apparently that game got their attention because they took apart the Redskins 27-17, then put on a masterpiece in dominating the Giants 40-17. The Eagles have speed to burn at receiver with DeSean Jackson (who averages more than 20 yards a catch) and at the running back slot with LeSean McCoy. On the defensive side, the Eagles are giving up 19.0 points per game (8th in the league) and have yet to play their best football.

Needs improvement: Donovan McNabb has decent numbers (9 TD passes, 1 interception), but has been inconsistent. He must stay healthy and continue to hit Jackson and Jeremy Maclin for big plays. The Eagles need to strive for consistency. They are averaging 344.4 yards per game, ranking 15th in the league. With McCoy and Brian Westbrook running the ball, they have the ability to take pressure off of McNabb and become a truly balanced team.
