The Eagles certainly had a lot of questions heading into the season, which is kind of ironic for the self-proclaimed "Dream Team."
How will the offensive line hold up? How will the young linebackers play in their first game? Will the secondary gel as a unit?
Some of these questions were answered very early on in the game.
Here are five things to take away from Sunday's win.
One glance at the stat sheet today and you'd think Michael Vick got off to a slow start. Yes, he scored two TDs but a completion percentage of 44 percent? That is not what the Eagles hoped to see.
Granted, Vick made up for his lack of accuracy in more ways than one Sunday. On the ground, Vick ran for over 100 yards and picked up first down after first down for the Eagles. And when it mattered, Vick made the throw that he had to.
It was second and goal for the Birds, with the Rams only trailing by seven at the time. Vick ran a bootleg to the left and slipped in an almost impossible ball to Desean Jackson for the score.
Throws like that one and his dynamic style of play are what warranted a $100 million contract.
Danny Watkins would have looked like a chicken with his head cut off if he had started the game today.
The Rams brought pressure on almost every play and schemed their defense very well. Watkins, who has had trouble picking up on blitzes, probably would've gotten Vick taken down a few times.
Bringing in a veteran like Kyle Devan was a huge risk for Big Red but it paid off in Week 1. After being with the team for only a week, Devan fit in well enough to protect Vick and provide him with enough time to unleash the football.
OK, I admit, this was a given even before this game Sunday.
However, the Eagles need to seriously consider locking up Desean Jackson sooner or later. Yes the Eagles may be dealing closely to their cap number but I'm sure they could work something out.
If you let the contract talks slip through the season, you're begging for trouble. You do not want to see Jackson hit the open market next summer.
The Eagles defense was a big concern heading into the season. After a big run by Steven Jackson to start the game, it became an even bigger concern.
However, the defense did settle down in the following quarters. After the Rams first play of the game, the Eagles defense only surrendered six points.
Also, if it weren't for those three penalties on the third down, the defense's stats would have been even better.
The front seven put on a show Sunday. Granted, the linebackers were iffy against the run, but their pass defense was second to none.
The Eagles put up five sacks against Sam Bradford, including two by Jason Babin. Darryl Tapp had a nice game by recording a sack himself and by forcing a fumble that led to a TD by Juqua Parker.
If the Eagles play this type of tenacious, get after the quarterback, type of defense, opposing quarterbacks could be in for a long nightmare.
Will anyone be able to stop a rotation that the Eagles have in place along the D-line?
