St. Louis at Philadelphia, Week One


1 p.m.
Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was sacked 44 times last season, third most in the NFL second most in his career behind a 45-sack season in 2000, his first year as a full-time starter.
Rams quarterback Marc Bulger 37 times last season, fourth most in the NFL, and he only played in 12 games.
Despite throwing for 3,324 yards, 19 touchdowns and only 7 interceptions last season, his first healthy year since the Super Bowl year of 2004, McNabb seemed tentative at times, and he blamed himself and his recovery from offseason ACL surgery for many of the sacks.
Bulger hopes a revamped offensive line -- left guard Jacob Bell came over from Tennesee, center Nick Leckey played in only three games last season and left tackle Orlando Pace missed all but the opener with a shoulder injury -- can keep him on his feet a bit more.
