Donovan McNabb will play at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday as the enemy for the first time in his career. Still, he said Tuesday that he expects a mostly warm reception from Philadelphia Eagles fans.

McNabb, traded to the Washington Redskins by the Eagles in the offseason, is preparing to play his former team for the first time.
