From The Rundown

Texans at Eagles - The Philadelphia Eagles don't have much time to recover from their first loss in a game Michael Vick started and finished (Loss to Bears 31-26). But take notice Houston fans, Mr. Vick has won 9 of his last 11 starts vs. AFC opponents. The Eagles have won 5 straight home games played in the regular season on December 1 or later. Matt Schaub can become the 2nd Texans QB to reach 13,000 yards and Arian Foster can set the single-season Texans rushing record as well.

"They don't care about the safety of the game. If the league was so concerned about the safety, why are you adding two more games on? You talk about you don't want players to drink and all you see is beer commercials. You don't want us to gamble, but then there are [NFL-endorsed lottery scratch-off games]."

-Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver Hines Ward lashed out Wednesday at the NFL for what he calls its hypocritical stance on player safety, arguing the league recently toughened its stance only because it wants to expand to an 18-game season.
