Turn the ball over five times and survive against a rookie quarterback in Cleveland, and a team might be asked to apologize.

Turn it over four times, smother Joe Flacco and win a one-point game against the Baltimore Ravens, defending AFC finalists, and that same team ought to be asked to bow.

That's where the Eagles were by Sunday night, at 2-0, with a 24-23 victory over the Ravens added to a one-point victory over the Browns.

They were at a point where they could be believed, for they were resilient, deep, aggressive and the better team.

“Everybody said we couldn't do it and that we couldn't play with these type of teams,” Jackson said. “Now, what do you say?”

It's not certain exactly who said the Eagles couldn't compete with anyone in the NFL. But the triumph over Baltimore was proof that they can.

Check out my column in the Daily Times Monday, along with a spotlight story on Michael Vick and the complete Eagles coverage from Bob Grotz and Rob Parent. And as always, it will be all there --- videos, too --- on
