The St. Louis Rams open another season at the Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis today. Today's opponent? The Philadelphia Eagles, a team that, you may have heard, got some attention for a few moves they made during the truncated free agency period. 

Of course, Rams GM Billy Devaney didn't exactly stand on the wall with his hands in his pocket. Bringing in players like Quintin Mikell, a former Eagle, andHarvey Dahl and Mike Sims-Walker, Spagnuolo realized some improvement to his roster as well. 

And now, finally, both teams get to put that to the test. 

As per usual with game days, I kind of ran out of things to say about it. Football looked like a pure fantasy at one point this year, when the lockout threatened to torpedo the whole thing. Thankfully, the idea of billions and billions in lost revenue scared everyone straight. Let's start making that money today!

I'm going to be covering the NFL beat with SBNation.com during the games today, so follow me on Twitter and check out that site for the rest of the NFL action. 

Of course, we're here too, and you can get at us on Twitter as well today @TurfShowTimes
