Giants at Redskins 8:30 p.m., ESPN. Line: Giants by 3. The skinny: Daniel Snyder likes his team in the spotlight, but his largely unsuccessful 13 years as Redskins owner have been a Monday night wipeout. Washington has lost 10 straight home Monday night games, nine of them with Snyder as owner. Now, at last, the Redskins have a leader suited for the big show. If anyone can end what tight end Chris Cooley jokingly referred to as "the Monday night curse," it's rookie quarterback Robert Griffin III. The stakes could hardly be bigger for this season's Redskins (5-6)

Brent Celek, Eagles: Will make a run at the Keith Jackson's Eagles' record for catches in a season by a tight end. Jackson had 81 in 1988. Celek had 76 last year. Dallas Clark, Colts: Coming off one of the greatest seasons ever for a tight end (100 catches, 1,106 yards, 10 touchdowns). As long as Reggie Wayne and the fellas are keeping defenses occupied on the outside, Clark will run free down the middle. Chris Cooley, Redskins: If you jump on Cooley just because Donovan McNabb is his quarterback, then you haven't done your homework.

The Eagles will face a depleted Washington running attack Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field. Clinton Portis is expected to again be out with a concussion, coach Jim Zorn said. He has missed the last two games and has not been able to practice since he was injured in a helmet-to-helmet hit against Atlanta. Backup Ladell Betts will have an MRI today on a torn MCL suffered against Dallas yesterday and his season could be in jeopardy. Betts had four carries for 5 yards before being injured on the second series.

Out with the new, in with the old. With the passing offense sputtering in two losses to open the season, Minnesota coach Brad Childress decided the Vikings can no longer afford to let 25-year-old quarterback Tarvaris Jackson learn on the job. Yesterday, Childress turned to 15-year veteran Gus Frerotte to run the offense for the rest of the season. "I'm just not seeing right now the aggressiveness from Tarvaris that I saw throughout the offseason, training camp, the two preseason games that he played in," Childress said.

BREAKING down the Eagles' 20-13 win over the Redskins on Sunday:   Spotlight on Herremans Seven-year veteran Todd Herremans made just the sixth start of his career at left tackle because of injuries to Jason Peters and King Dunlap. As with his earlier move from left guard to right tackle, he made a seamless transition.   Run defense The Eagles didn't abandon the wide nine, but they used it less, particularly on first down, when they lined up in a tighter, more traditional, four-man front, and also moved their linebackers closer to the line of scrimmage.

Each week in the Eagles Playbook, 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 those things panned out yesterday: 1. The Redskins' blitz: Coming into yesterday, the Redskins had just six sacks in four games. They weren't able to sack or get much pressure on Donovan McNabb yesterday. Even so, the Eagles quarterback still had an bad game, completing just 58.6 percent of his passes, a season low. 2. Tale of the takeaway: The Eagles came into the game having forced nine turnovers, but got none against the Redskins.

Joe Gibbs has won three Super Bowls. Andy Reid is one of the best coaches in Eagles history. Neither, though, will send tape of the last minute of the first half of last night's game - a m?lange of strange time-outs, penalties and mental mistakes - to Canton. "I was surprised with everything that went on," Redskins tight end Chris Cooley said. "There was a lot of confusion. " The odd sequence began with the Eagles ahead, 6-3, late in the second quarter. The Redskins had put a solid drive together, moving from their 27. Quarterback Jason Campbell scrambled for 20 yards and completed four passes, the last a 17-yarder to wide receiver Antwaan Randle El that gave Washington a first and goal at the Eagles' 1 with 22 seconds left in the half.

Kevin Kolb got a second chance Sunday but showed he still has work to do if he is going to take over as the Eagles' full-time starter. His play was improved from his Week 1 flop, but Kolb struggled to come up with anything more than short throws against a Redskins team determined to prevent big plays. Michael Vick, in his one quarter of action, had also been forced to take small gains. But while Vick's speed and arm strength provide a sense that the Eagles might explode at any moment, the team only nibbled away with Kolb.

LANDOVER, Md. - It's not over yet, not this early. The Eagles breathed life back into their season Sunday with a 20-13 win over the Redskins, improving to 2-4 and avoiding the kind of start that would have almost certainly doomed their playoff chances. The team still has significant work to do to meet the expectations for this season, but their second victory bought some breathing room for coach Andy Reid and sent the Eagles into their bye week within two games of first place in the NFC East.

LANDOVER, Md. - A few weeks ago, Rex Grossman was predicting. Yesterday, he was deflecting. Grossman said before the season started that he would lead the Redskins to the NFC East title, and, after a 3-1 start, he seemed prescient. Yesterday, he seemed premature. Grossman matched his career high with four interceptions. He did it in three quarters. He was benched in the fourth quarter, replaced by training-camp favorite John Beck. Grossman does not know when he will throw another pass in a game.

ASHBURN, Va. - The Eagles may be getting roasted by the local and national media for their 1-4 start, but you won't hear any of that in the Washington Redskins locker room. The 3-1 Redskins see the Eagles as a team that hasn't put it together but remains dangerous. They also said that their 59-28 pummeling by the Birds at FedEx field last year on Monday Night Football won't add any incentive. The Redskins are just looking to win another game. "They have athletes who do good things, and it will be a big challenge," tight end Chris Cooley said.

Defensive end Darryl Tapp made an early impact again. With the Redskins on the Eagles' 10 in the second quarter, Donovan McNabb looked as if he had room to run. But Tapp grabbed him from behind to stop him, and the Redskins settled for a field goal. It's fair to say LeSean McCoy has taken a significant step forward this season. The second-year player was the Eagles' best offensive player in the first half and almost single-handedly kept them in the game. "Shady" took a screen pass 31 yards that, dare we say, was Brian Westbrookian.

HE GOT THE game ball and delivered a little dig at his old team for trading him. But really, Donovan McNabb's much-ballyhooed return to Lincoln Financial Field turned out to be less about that public referendum, and more about the one that recurred again and again during his 11 seasons in Midnight Green. Was it Donovan? Was it Andy? Whether it was about clock management, play calls or execution, the answers and fault lines seemed to vary each time there was an unexpected loss. Now, separated from each other, we are finally reaching some clarity.

You hold a team to 17 points it's supposed to be a recipe for victory. You hold a quarterback to eight completions you're usually going to walk away a winner. Usually, but not yesterday. The Eagles defense played three pretty good quarters of football and one not so good one against the Redskins. That one not so good one was enough to help dig their grave in an ugly, 17-12 loss. After giving up just seven first-quarter points in their first three games, the Eagles gave up touchdowns to the Redskins on each of their first two possessions.
