It will be our first chance to see Browns rookie quarterback Brandon Weeden in meaningful action. The same is true for running back Trent Richardson, who will start Sunday, according to NFL.com and NFL Network reporter Albert Breer.
The game also should feature one of the best one-on-one outside matchups of the day. Browns cornerback Joe Haden, still waiting to learn how the appeal for a suspension will play out, says he will mirror Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson in coverage all day.
We think Haden already is a top-five cornerback. Jackson is trying to bounce back from a down season in Philadelphia. Haden will be extra fired up because he gets to face his childhood idol, Michael Vick.
"I had the jersey, the shoes, everything," Haden told the Akron Beacon-Journal. "I was a legit fan. ... I didn't want to be like a groupie, but I kind of told him a little bit."
It makes us feel old that Michael Vick is playing against kids who grew up idolizing him.
