Philadelphia Eagles -- No one thought their defense was a juggernaut, but they looked solid for most of the game against Washington in Week 1. The Eagles gave up 33 points to the Chargers, and it could have been more if not for two fumble recoveries deep in their own territory. On Sunday, the defense looked suspiciously like it did at the end of last season in South Philadelphia.
