OKLAHOMA STATE'S fifth-year senior, who turned 28 on Oct. 14, was older than 14 of the NFL quarterbacks who started in Week 1. Shades of Chris Weinke, who became the oldest player to win the Heisman Trophy as a 28-year-old for Florida State in 2000 after pursuing a baseball career. The year before, he helped the Seminoles win a national title. Now, Weeden is trying to do both in the same season. The Cowboys, 10-0 for the first time, are coming off a 66-6 win at Texas Tech. It's the sixth time they've scored at least 52. They haven't been held under 30. Last year, in his first full season as a starter since 2001, Weeden became OSU's first all-league QB since the 1930s.

BRANDON WEEDEN is an impressive-looking rookie quarterback, but if he stays upright long enough to beat the Eagles, I'll be surprised. I like the Birds' pass rush here, even if the Eagles offense coughs and sputters because Michael Vick looks a bit rusty. The Birds have the Ravens next week, then the Cards, Giants and Steelers. Lose this one and your chances of starting out better than 2-2 are shaky. For the Eagles, a loss here is a much bigger deal than a win would be. Prediction Eagles 27-17.

THE BROWNS can't catch a break. On Sunday against the Lions, quarterback Brandon Weeden tossed a boneheaded, highlight-reel interception that will likely rank among the most embarrassing plays in team history. Then yesterday, the Browns discovered that wide receiver Charles Johnson, who they signed off the Packers practice squad on Saturday, has a torn ACL and needs surgery. Apparently, the Browns didn't know about the injury until they gave Johnson a physical. Now, he'll be placed on the reserve/non-football injury list.

Keep in mind that nobody had Cam Newtown on the old radar screen when last season started. Anyway . . . * Andrew Luck, Sr. QB, Stanford (5-1): You were expecting maybe Terrelle Pryor? * Trent Richardson, Jr. RB, Alabama (7-1): Some think he could be better than the Tide's 2009 winner. * LaMichael James, Jr. RB, Oregon (10-1): Was a finalist last year for team that moves the ball. * Kellen Moore, Sr. QB, Boise State (12-1): Ditto. * Landry Jones, Jr. QB, Oklahoma (15-1)

Eagles defensive end Jason Babin was fined $15,750 for roughing Browns quarterback Brandon Weeden in last Sunday's 17-16 win. The NFL determined that Babin "unnecessarily" drove Weeden into the ground, according to a league spokesman. Per the collective-bargaining agreement, fines increased 5 percent this season, so a $15,000 fine last year is $15,750 this season. This is not the first time Babin's been levied a fine from the league. After a $15,000 fine for roughing the passer last October, Babin was outspoken about his frustration with the league's system.

OK, SO NICK Foles starting on Sunday isn't official yet, but if he's not out there, Michael Vick won't be the only one having his head examined this week. Anybody who watched Vick take hit after hit behind an offensive line that looked like five wheels of Swiss cheese knew it was only a matter of time before Foles started. Since 1970, the Eagles have drafted 17 quarterbacks. Four, if you include Foles, have started a game as rookies. Donovan McNabb, Randall Cunningham and John Reaves are the others.

The Yankees and Arizona Diamondbacks talked again yesterday about a trade that would send Randy "Big Unit" Johnson to New York for Javier Vazquez. Yankees president Randy Levine spoke with incoming Arizona chief executive officer Jeff Moorad. They discussed both prospects and money, but no progress was made. A proposed three-team, 10-player trade came apart last week when Los Angeles reversed course and withdrew. The Yankees were livid over the Dodgers' decision to scuttle the deal, insisting that Los Angeles had said it was going ahead with the trade, which would have sent Vazquez from New York to the Dodgers and outfielder Shawn Green from Los Angeles to the Diamondbacks.

FORMER GEORGE Washington High star Sharrif Floyd must sit out another game with the Florida Gators and arrange to repay about $2,700 to charity before he is eligible to compete. The NCAA's student-athlete reinstatement staff handed down its decision yesterday. Floyd, a sophomore defensive tackle, sat out Florida's season opener last week and will do the same tomorrow night against UAB. The university declared Floyd ineligible for violating the NCAA's preferential treatment rules.

Trace the NFL career of Thaddeus Lewis, the man who may be one snap away from becoming the Eagles' starting quarterback, and it appears as if he set out to spend a little time with every franchise in the league, working his way from the bottom up. The St. Louis Rams signed him as a free agent in 2010, then released him. The Cleveland Browns claimed him off waivers in September 2012, waived him a month later, signed him to their practice squad two...

Byron Maxwell has reviewed Sunday's loss to Dallas, paying particular attention to the late touchdown pass that put the game out of reach, and has decided he wasn't tired after all. "I like to think if they're out there rolling, then I'm out there rolling," Maxwell said after practice Tuesday. "Playing 82 snaps just means I am in great shape. " After the game, without the benefit of the chance to think it over, the cornerback sounded as if he thought otherwise. Maxwell was alone in coverage on Terrance Williams when backup quarterback Brandon Weeden hit him on a simple slant route that went 42 yards and expanded the Dallas lead to 17 points with less than five minutes to play.

The NFL is still deciding what to do about Pittsburgh Steelers coach Mike Tomlin, who appeared to impede Baltimore kick returner Jacoby Jones during the Ravens' 22-20 win over the Steelers on Thursday night. Tomlin said he was watching the play unfold on the Jumbotron and lost his "placement" on the field, causing Jones to veer to his right just before being tackled by Pittsburgh's Cortez Allen after a 73-yard return. But now there's some film-at-11 from Pittsburgh's KDKA-TV, released Monday, apparently showing Tomlin sidling over, taking a big step, and putting a foot on the field as Jones broke into the open, not moving until the return man is nearly on top of the coach.

THE EAGLES boxed up Nick Foles' grass-stained white road jersey, his cleats and the game ball they'd saved yesterday and shipped them all to Canton, Ohio, at the request of the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Equipment manager Greg Delimitros said he'd kept just one ball for Foles, but the quarterback had no problem parting with it, or any of the other artifacts from Foles' seven-touchdown-pass afternoon Sunday in Oakland. Delimitros said Foles isn't superstitious or even very picky about his equipment.

THE EXCITEMENT of the Eagles offense has fans rolling off their bar stools. But one fantasy expert warns that there is a long season ahead. "While [ Michael Vick ] seems to be quite comfortable in this offense, especially with increased read-option elements, he will always be an injury risk," Scott Engel, of RotoExperts.com, said before last night's game. Engel had Vick at No. 14 in his preseason rankings and has moved him up four spots after the Eagles' first two games. "Plus," Engel said before last night's game, "Vick has never had a good fantasy season from start to finish in his career, so I do remain somewhat skeptical and not reactionary.

The Kansas City Chiefs hired former Vikings coach Brad Childress, reuniting him with Andy Reid. Childress, who spent last season as the offensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns, will be the Chiefs' spread game analyst and work on special projects. He spent five years as the Minnesota head coach (2006-10), a stint that included two division titles (2008-09). The team was 12-4 in 2009. Childress previously spent seven seasons, from 1999 to 2005, with the Eagles, where he worked with Reid.

CLEVELAND - Robert Griffin III watched as the Redskins' other rookie quarterback again won. Rookie Kirk Cousins threw for 329 yards and two touchdowns filling in on Sunday for an injured Griffin to lead Washington to its fifth straight win, a 38-21 pasting of the Cleveland Browns. Cousins connected with Leonard Hankerson for both touchdowns in his first career start as the Redskins, who'll meet the Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday, barely missed a beat without the talented and multi-dimensional RGIII, who sat out with a sprained knee.

Six seasons ago, Josh Fields was a 24-year-old rookie third baseman who mashed 23 home runs in 100 games and was seen as a future cornerstone of the Chicago White Sox. You know, the kind of guy the Phillies currently dream of to fill a gaping hole. He has played in 106 major-league games since 2007, been labeled as a first-round bust, and is now the property of the Phillies as he attempts to revive a career that has taken him from Arkansas to Japan to Albuquerque. Fields is the Phillies' first minor-league free agent signing, as reported by Baseball America.

ARLINGTON, Texas - For every play but one, Tony Romo protected the ball through a career-high seven sacks and led a rally to put Dallas in position to win. That one play almost cost the Cowboys dearly Sunday. Dan Bailey kicked a 38-yard field goal in overtime as Dallas overcame a critical fumble by Romo that sparked a wild ending in the Cowboys' 23-20 victory against Cleveland. It was the 12th straight road loss for the Browns. Bailey's winning kick with 6 minutes, 7 seconds remaining came after both teams punted once in the first overtime game ever played at Cowboys Stadium.
