    With this game on the road and against a Philadelphia defense that likes to blitz, San Diego will lean heavily on the services of RB LaDainian Tomlinson. Showing a strong commitment to the running game will help take some pressure off QB Drew Brees and help the Chargers sustain longer drives that wear the Eagles' defense down. However, Brees will have to throw downfield at times and the ability of his offensive line to give him time to find the open man on these plays will play a big role in the outcome of this game.

    A sports hernia isn't an injury that heals up over a bye week, but the rest should help Eagles QB Donovan McNabb who has been playing through injuries all year. That's good news for Philadelphia fans because McNabb and WR Terrell Owens are capable of torching a San Diego secondary that is dealing with some injuries of their own. That being said the Eagles need to get RB Brian Westbrook more carries or McNabb won't have much time to scan the field when he drops back to pass.</blockquote>
