EIGHTEEN PLAYS, the most the Eagles have put together on a scoring drive since the 2001 season opener. Eight minutes and 51 seconds, the most elapsed time in an Eagles scoring drive since a 10:26 drive back on Sept. 18, 2005. A whopping six third-down conversions, including the touchdown play. The most amazing thing about the drive that beat the Giants Sunday night was the cast of characters. Vince Young? Clay Harbor? Ronnie Brown? Riley Cooper? Jason Avant? Yes, there was a huge DeSean Jackson play in there, and a strong sprinkling of LeSean McCoy, but the foot soldiers really pushed the march.

As the legend of Nick Foles grows - the Eagles QB apparently drew the game-winning play up in the dirt for coach Andy Reid - it's important to note that, while Foles played splendidly and was sharp under pressure, his fourth start was not without its flaws. That being said, Foles once again showed improvement over the previous week and in Sunday's 23-21 thrilling win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers he took his biggest step yet. What impressed most was how he moved in and out of the pocket when protection broke down and threw the ball on the run. Some of Foles' best passes actually came when he had to escape the pass rush and improvise on the run. Two throws stood out: The 39-yard heave to wide receiver Jason Avant in the second quarter and the 11-yard touchdown pass to tight end Clay Harbor that started the Eagles' comeback.

Brent Celek knows his fantasy-league stock has dropped. He does not care. Asked to block more last year - and also so far this season - the Eagles tight end has seen his pass-catching statistics suffer as a result. That hasn't won Celek additional fans among fantasy-league owners. But among his coaches, the 26-year-old has earned increasing respect for his devotion to one of the less popular jobs on offense. "The film doesn't lie," Celek said. "You've got a certain job to do on every single play, and if you do that well, you're playing well overall.

The Eagles have some tough decisions to make come Friday, perhaps as difficult as they have ever had when faced with trimming their roster to 53 players. But every year they seem to find a way to keep their most talented players with few casualties. This year should be no different, although they may have to release a couple of budding youngsters and proven veterans that other teams could snatch up. The Eagles will comb the waiver wire as well following the 9 p.m. deadline, when final rosters must be sent to the league office.

SOMETIMES THERE is shock and sadness, when boxes and bags come out for packing up lockers. Not so much yesterday at NovaCare. This was not the day after a playoff loss, as packing-up time has been the past 3 years, and nine times during Andy Reid's 13-year reign. The 2011 season was mortally wounded back in September and October, several Eagles acknowledged. The Eagles were just about dead when they were 1-4, and all but officially dead when they were 4-8, and of course, they were finally eliminated from the playoff race on Christmas Eve. No, they didn't enjoy watching Sunday night as the New York Giants claimed the NFC East title, the same Giants team they handled at MetLife Stadium, 17-10, back on Nov. 20, the Eagles playing then without Michael Vick.

Several young Eagles again stepped into prominent or increased roles in Tuesday night's game. Rookie middle linebacker Jamar Chaney , in his second career start, was active against the run early and had an athletic pass breakup against tight end Visanthe Shiancoe late in the first quarter. Clay Harbor , inactive from Week 2 to Week 9, had his first career touchdown and fifth career catch in the first quarter, bringing in a 3-yard pass from Michael Vick . Rookie safety Kurt Coleman got the second start of his career, filling in for Nate Allen , who was out with a knee injury.

It's not going to make for a good argument if the Eagles and DeSean Jackson ever hold contract extension talks, but the wide receiver could point to Brent Celek's resurgence this season for proof of his worth. Jackson's loss has been Celek's gain. The tight end had a career day as the Eagles held on to dear playoff life and trounced the New York Jets, 45-19, on Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field. Jackson not so much. The pre-game storyline on Jackson was that he needed to put on a show against the Jets' All-World cornerback Darrelle Revis with his future in Philadelphia in great doubt.

Even stone-faced Andy Reid couldn't mask the obvious. The Eagles' coach wouldn't come out and say that he was resting most of his starters in Sunday's regular-season finale. But with a number of significant regulars injured; with the team coming off a short week; and, most important, with the first round of the playoffs looming, Reid will use an otherwise-meaningless game against the Cowboys to give his reserves some extra playing time. "Your roster's not big enough where you can" sit every starter, Reid said Friday behind a devilish grin.

If he is healthy, Michael Vick will start at quarterback Sunday against the New England Patriots, Eagles coach Andy Reid said Monday. Vick's two broken ribs kept him out of Sunday night's game, so the if is significant. But after Vince Young's performance in the Eagles' 17-10 victory over the New York Giants in which he led the Eagles on an 18-play, game-winning drive in the fourth quarter, Reid may not feel as compelled to hurry Vick back. Young, though, was erratic in the first 28 minutes.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. - Brent Celek suffered a mild sprain in his right knee during practice Thursday, the Eagles said. The tight end caught a pass during the early portion of the first full-squad practice of training camp, but left soon after. Celek was later seen walking out of the locker room at Lehigh University wearing a wrap around his knee. "I'll be good," Celek said. "Promise. " Celek entered camp completely healthy, according to the team. This offseason, he underwent hip surgery and had a sports hernia repaired.
