Herremans, not Peters at OLT (that's a good thing)

Jason Peters made the trip but was scratched due to a sprained ankle, enabling the Eagles to start  Todd Herremans at left tackle. This is a positive move. Peters lately has been a liability whose moodiness is exceeded only by his penchant for underachievement.
The mild surprise of the resulting line shuffle is Stacy Andrews starting at right guard instead of Max Jean-Gillies, as Nick Cole moved to Herremans' slot at left guard. Andrews easily has had the worst season of any Eagles lineman on either side of the ball. That said you will see Jean-Gillies on this unseasonably cold 65-degree yet sunny day.
Linebacker Akeem iJordan (knee) and safety Quintin Demps (hamstring) are the only other other inactives of note. Expect Jeremy Maclin to field kickoffs.
Running back Brian Westbrook returned to the lineup for the first time in three games after sustaining a concussion.
Wide receiver Kevin Curtis (knee) sat out his seventh straight game.
