News: Carroll set up an interception in Saturday's 40-17 win over the Ravens.
Impact: In a selfless play, Carroll tipped a ball in the end zone to Eagles safety Walter Thurmond, who intercepted the ball and returned it 31 yards. Carroll has looked sturdy enough in coverage through two games this preseason to keep his lead on the team's second starting corner spot. His tip play Saturday was a smart, reactionary play that likely earned him points with defensive backs coach Cory Undlin.

News: Carroll and Eric Rowe are competing for a starting cornerback job, according to CSN Philadelphia's Geoff Mosher.
Impact: Carroll has 27 career starts through five seasons, but Rowe is a second-round rookie with an ideal blend of size and speed. The Eagles obviously hope Rowe will prove worthy of the starting job, but the rookie's versatility (he also can play safety) might work in Carroll's favor if it's a close call. Rowe is the more promising IDP prospect, as Carroll has never topped 43 tackles in a season.
