Donovan McNabb and Donte’ Stallworth are on their way to erasing the ugly scar Terrell Owens left on the Philadelphia Eagles.

McNabb threw for 314 yards and three touchdowns, including one to Stallworth, to lead the Eagles to a 24-10 win over the Houston Texans on Sunday.

The game was Stallworth’s debut with the Eagles after a trade from the Saints, and McNabb’s regular-season return after missing the final seven games of last season after surgery to repair a sports hernia. It was also a promising start to Philadelphia’s first post-T.O. season.

No. 1 pick Mario Williams had three tackles but failed to make much of an impact while being shifted up and down the line in his and coach Gary Kubiak’s first game as Texans.

The Eagles sputtered in the first quarter, with a punt ending their first possession and an interception by McNabb stopping the second.

They got things going in the second quarter when Stallworth flew past a seemingly unaware C.C. Brown and caught a 42-yard touchdown pass to tie it at 7. It was the first of several times the Eagles would exploit Houston’s inexperienced secondary.

Stallworth struck again just before halftime when McNabb found him for a 37-yard reception to the 5. Reggie Brown scored on the next play to give the Eagles a 14-10 halftime lead.

Stallworth had four receptions for 124 yards by halftime and finished with six for 141 yards for his 10th career 100-yard game.

So because everyone else in their division plays about the same schedule it makes it a tough schedule?? That makes no sense!! Why didn't the Eagles open against the Jags and the Cowboy's open against the Texans??

Eight rushing attempts at halftime. Same old tissue paper Andy Reid, rather trick you than hit you.
