Featured Game Week 5 - Philadelphia Eagles At SF 49ers

     The Eagles have been bitten by the injury bug. Now that Kevin Kolb has recovered from his concussion he is back at starter because of Michael Vick's rib injury. LeSean McCoy is questionable with a broken rib while Assante Samuel is out with a concussion. The 49ers are desperate for a win having started 0-4.Giants appear to be a team in disarray while the Bears look like a team that has found itself. This is looking like a must win for the Giants while it isn't anywhere near that important to the Bears.
