The Philadelphia Eagles narrowly escaped Week 1 with a 17-16 victory on the road against the Cleveland Browns.
Michael Vick didn't have his best game, throwing four interceptions. However, he and his team found a way to get the job done, something Bleeding Green Nation pointed out is different than last year:
Time will tell if what we saw today from the Eagles will continue through out the season, and if it does, the Eagles are in trouble. They might not win 8 games like they did last year if Micheal Vick plays this bad and continues to show he might never change. But just like it would be important to not get too high if they would have beaten the Browns 40-7, it's important to not over react when they only beat them 17-16.
Because despite all of the penalties and turnovers, the Eagles showed that this year is different by winning the game.
While the game was far from ideal, Philadelphia can certainly build off of the contest in making preparations for another AFC North team, the Baltimore Ravens.
