Well, this was a pretty rough week all-around for Eagles fans, but us here at the Level at least can take solace in something of a bounceback week in our Inaugural Fantasy League. Team Enrico rode a monstrous fantasy performance from Titans RB Chris Johnson to a league-high 113 points and easy Week Two victory, and my Edmonton Enigmas barely held off a disturbingly surging performance from Dolphins/Findum Pluckum and Flee back Ronnie Brown last night to secure a squeaker win and get myself on the board as well. Kulp's wasn't quite so lucky, unfortunately, as for the second straight week, his Andy Reid's Drug Emporium scored 90+ points, but didn't come out with the W. We're glad that the blog at large is on the board, at least.
Congrats to Team Vicktory and The Marmots for being the only two 2-0 teams, and kudos as well to Hayyy, Girl! and the South Park Towelies for evening their records at 1-1. Full stats for the League and the Eagles' individual performances (of which DeSean Jackson's 17 points were a team high) after the jump:

About NBC internships
The Eagles lost middle linebacker Jordan Hicks on the second play of Monday night's game against the Redskins.
Hicks suffered an ankle injury and was almost carried off the field without being able to place any weight on his right leg. After getting checked out on the sideline, he was carted into the Eagles' locker room.
After the Eagles originally said Hicks was questionable to return, they ruled him out a little while later.
Hicks was in some clear pain coming off the field. As he waited for the cart, he was consoled by injured safety Chris Maragos, who was lost for the season in Carolina.
Coming into Monday's game, Hicks was listed as questionable with a calf injury. He said he hurt his calf after overcompensating for his injured ankle. On Saturday, when asked if he was 100 percent, Hicks said "who is?"
Hicks played in all 16 games last season but has struggled with injuries dating back to his years in college. He played eight games as a rookie in 2015 before tearing his pec.
Mychal Kendricks (hamstring) was inactive on Monday, so the Eagles are down to Nigel Bradham, Najee Goode and Joe Walker in their base defense.
