Tackle Lane Johnson and the rest of the Philadelphia Eagles' line know they must step up their game after a disappointing season-opening loss at the Atlanta Falcons.

A running game that netted only 63 yards despite the offseason acquisitions of running backs DeMarco Murray and Ryan Mathews was a glaring weakness in Week 1, prompting Lane to concede the Eagles need "to get this offense clicking."

One way for Murray, Mathews and Co. to get their wheels going Sunday versus the Dallas Cowboys could be what Johnson termed a "new fad going on in the locker room" - riding a PhunkeeDuck.
