Quick Take: Eagles (5-4-1) at Ravens (6-4)

Last meeting
Playing on Halloween in 2004, Philadelphia's Terrell Owens led all receivers with eight receptions for 101 yards and a touchdown in a 15-10 home win over the Ravens.

Before the 2004 meeting, the Ravens and Eagles had squared off just one other time -- a 10-10 tie in 1997.

Last week
Baltimore struggled on the road, losing to the Giants, 30-10. ... Philadelphia's matchup with Cincinnati ended in a 13-13 draw, the NFL's first tie since 2002.

Keep your eye on ...
Baltimore's run defense: Something had to give when the Giants' top-ranked running game met the Ravens' top-ranked run defense. Unfortunately for Baltimore, which entered last Sunday's game holding opponents to an average of 65.4 rushing yards, the Giants totaled 207 yards on the ground. Expect a better showing against an Eagles team that has averaged just 82 rushing yards over its last three games.

Philadelphia's defensive ends: Of the eight sacks by Philadelphia's defense last week, five came from ends Trent Cole, Darren Howard and Chris Clemons. The Eagles raised their season total to 36, moving into a tie with the Steelers for the league lead in that category. The Ravens have allowed 18 sacks all season.

McGahee's health: Last week, Willis McGahee was again limited by an injury; QB Joe Flacco was the Ravens' leading rusher with 57 yards. If McGahee is not at full strength this week, as has been the case for much of the season, look for Ray Rice and Le'Ron McClain to pick up the slack.
