Each week, Daily News football writer Paul Domowitch will tell you the things he will be keeping his eyes on during that week's game. Here's how things panned out yesterday:
1. Yo, Adrian: The Eagles knew they couldn't completely shut down Adrian Peterson, but they also knew they had to limit his number of long runs. Peterson managed to score two touchdowns, one on his longest run of the game, a 40-yarder in the second quarter. But overall, the Eagles held him to 83 yards on 20 carries with most of the runs going for fewer than 5 yards.
2. More charity: In their playoff-clinching win over the Cowboys, the Eagles forced five turnovers. Yesterday, Asante Samuel returned an interception 44 yards for a score to give the Eagles a 16-7 lead in the second quarter, and Juqua Parker recovered a fourth-quarter fumble that led to a David Akers field goal and increased the Eagles' lead to 26-14.
