PHILADELPHIA - Greetings from Lincoln Financial Field, where the Eagles (3-7) will try to snap a seven-game losing streak against the equally inept Carolina Panthers (2-8).

As expected the Eagles will be missing some key offensive players. Quarterback Michael Vick and running back LeSean McCoy are both missing the game with concussions. Wide receiver Jason Avant is also out with a strained hamstring.

Rookie quarterback Nick Foles will make his second straight start for the Eagles. Rookie Bryce Brown will share the ball-carrying duties with Dion Lewis tonight. Rookie Damaris Johnson and Riley Cooper will take Avant's reps.

On defense, rookie Vinny Curry, the team's second-round draft pick, is active for the first time this season and should get some playing time.

If you're going to watch the game, have fun. Otherwise, enjoy the season finale of "Dancing with the Stars." I'm picking Shawn Johnson to win it all.
