Yes, Michael Vick will likely take the field at the Linc for the first time this season as the Eagles starting quarterback, but the real show will come at halftime when the Eagles drum line do the damn thing.
Philly.com's description was tough to beat:
And Sunday, for the first time ever, the Eagles Drumline takes the field, playing rump to rump with those Eagles cheerleaders, accompanying the eye candy with the ear candy of 17 fervent diehards living the dream on snares, basses and cymbals.
To me, the drum line sound is distinctively NCAA football, but it's one of the best aspects of the atmosphere of Saturdays in the fall, so perhaps it will translate well to the NFL gridiron. And, cheerleaders. So hey.

About NBC internships
Reporters at Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum pointed out the tremendous showing of Philadelphia Eagles fans on Sunday afternoon, with most saying their representation among Rams fans being guestimated at about 50-50.
So when Brandon Graham scored on a 16-yard fumble return for a touchdown as time expired, the Eagles defense attempted to do a Lambeau Leap-style celebration because there were so many Eagles fans in the front row.
Naturally, the few Rams fans nearby were understandably not down with it. NBC Sports Philadelphia's camera's captured footage of one Rams fan attempting to push Eagles defensive end Chris Long down.
Long is then seen having heated words with said fan. You may remember Long from earlier in the game when he forced Jared Goff to fumble in a game-changing play. I'd say Long likely won this battle of words.
The Eagles beat the Rams by a final of 43-35. You can watch the encounter below.
