PHOENIX - It seems like ages ago, but Danny Amendola once was with the Eagles. It was for a cup of coffee, and he never played in a game in Eagles green, but the Patriots wide receiver said his nine-month stay in Philadelphia was beneficial. "I came into Dallas, went to Philly, and I was behind some great receivers that are still playing at a high level," Amendola said. "I learned a lot from them, and I knew that if my opportunity were to arise I was going to be ready. " The Eagles signed Amendola in January 2009 after he spent the entire 2008 season on the Cowboys practice squad.

IT'S THE obvious answer, but Chip Kelly put it perfectly. The Patriots - despite losing Dion Lewis, Julian Edelman, Danny Amendola and now Rob Gronkowski - continue to hum along. They scored 24 points last weekend on the road in the snow against a solid Denver defense without a receiver or a running back reaching 100 yards. How do they manage such efficiency, despite losing all those weapons? "Did they lose Brady?" Kelly asked jokingly. They did not, which is the primary reason New England averages 31.5 points per game.

WE'RE CALLING a violation - actually two - on Danny Amendola. On Sunday, the Rams receiver caught a touchdown pass early in the fourth quarter against the Vikings. He then spiked the ball so hard it bounced off the turf and smashed an elderly stadium employee - reportedly an usher - in the face. Broke the poor guy's glasses and all. It's a YouTube moment. Amendola, who didn't see the guy get hurt, went on to celebrate. No violation there. But we're calling him out for spiking the ball in the first place.

Shawn Andrews is off to Los Angeles, and Danny Amendola is headed to St. Louis. Andrews broke the news of his departure on his Twitter account yesterday, announcing that it was "time to head to LA", where he is expected to be examined by specialist Robert Watkins this week. Watkins is the doctor who operated on the tackle's back in October. An Eagles spokesman said he did not know when Andrews would see Watkins. Andrews' agent, Rich Moran, did not want to say when the appointment would take place.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 16 of the 2012 season.   Watch 'em roll Tony Romo, QB, Cowboys vs. Saints. Don't be scared off by the Saints' shutout of the Bucs last week. That was an aberration. Romo has been putting up solid, if not stellar, numbers during the Cowboys' late-season roll. Vick Ballard, RB, Colts at Chiefs. Though he has scored only two touchdowns all season, Ballard has firmly established himself as the workhorse of the Indy backfield.

WE'VE SEEN opposing quarterbacks frolic all over the Eagles' defense so often lately that it looks as if they are in 7-on-7 drills. What did Dez Bryant have in common with Wawa on Sunday? They were open all night. Quarterbacks have posted a ridiculous 142.4 passer rating and have thrown 16 touchdowns and zero picks. But what about the opposing running backs? Are the Eagles just what slumping Buccaneers back Doug Martin needs? Or is Martin, who seems to be hitting the rookie wall, a welcome challenge for the Birds?

The Denver Broncos capped a huge day for the franchise by confirming late Wednesday night that they had signed former Eagles cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, a free agent, to a one-year, $5 million deal. The move came a few hours after the Broncos grabbed wide receiver Wes Welker away from the New England Patriots. Rodgers-Cromartie spent the last two seasons with the Eagles, but struggled. A Pro Bowler in 2009, he has 16 interceptions in 77 career games. After spending six years with Tom Brady in New England, Pro Bowl receiver Welker agreed to a two-year, $12 million deal to team up with Peyton Manning in Denver.

Eric Rowe is playing just his second season as a cornerback. The Eagles rookie spent his first three collegiate seasons at Utah as a shutdown free safety. Rowe said he is constantly learning at his new position. And his tests have been stiff. Rowe matched up last week against Detroit receiver Calvin Johnson, one of the league's most imposing targets. And on Sunday, he'll be staring down New England quarterback Tom Brady, who Rowe said is the best quarterback he has ever seen at reading defenses.

THE ATLANTA Falcons replaced Michael Turner with another proven, productive running back. Steven Jackson, the top running back in free agency, agreed to a 3-year, $12 million deal with the Falcons on Thursday. Also getting new deals were backup quarterback Matt Cassel in Minnesota and cornerback Keenan Lewis in New Orleans. The New York Giants signed defensive backs Ryan Mundy and Aaron Ross. And the Houston Texans were rolling out the red carpet to make their pitch to safety Ed Reed.

Any Eagles splash in free agency will likely be a position with a specific need, such as the offensive line, defensive line, and secondary. The Eagles will be less inclined to invest in a position of relative strength unless there's tangible value. Every receiver from last season is under contract in 2013, although new coach Chip Kelly can always use talented skill players to boost his offense. It's unlikely the Eagles will be aggressive for top receivers such as Mike Wallace and Wes Welker, but they could find a fit for a younger, emerging player.

Some numbers that mattered in the Eagles' stunning 35-28 upset of the Patriots: 128.4 Sam Bradford's third-down passer rating against the Patriots. Third down has been a black hole for Bradford and the Eagles this season. The Eagles quarterback was ranked 29th in the league in third-down passing (57.6 rating) and the Eagles were 27th in third-down efficiency (34.4 percent) going into the New England game. Bradford had completed just 48.9 percent of his third-down passes, had averaged a league-worst 4.01 yards per attempt and had converted just 26.1 percent of his third-down passes into first downs.

There is usually no good time for an NFL defense to find itself matched up against Tom Brady and the New England Patriots. Now in his 16th season, the 38-year-old Brady is still near the peak of his game as he climbs up the list of the greatest quarterbacks in league history. Pick a category. He's at or close to the top of them all now. Yards, wins, completions, touchdowns, interception percentage. He has his bad days like all quarterbacks, but even those are usually better than everyone else's good days.

MALCOLM JENKINS said something last week that offered an interesting prism through which to view the Eagles' frenetic offseason. "Look at New England," the safety said. "It's always about the team first. They obviously have one of the best quarterbacks on their team, but when you look at their roster, they move people in and out, plug people in and out, because they have a way that they do things. The Patriot Way. That's how they win. I think that's what Chip is trying to do here.

Danny Amendola, Patriots: A fun side bet would be who gets more targets, Amendola with the Patriots or Wes Welker with the Broncos. It would have to be a weekly wager, since Amendola missed 15 games in 2011 and five last year. Dez Bryant, Cowboys: Bryant has improved his numbers in each of his first three seasons and had 10 touchdowns in a seven-game stretch in the second half of last season. It's scary that he's only 24. Michael Crabtree, 49ers: Out until late in the season, recovering from surgery for a torn Achilles' tendon suffered in May. Anquan Boldin is the Niners wideout to have, but don't expect much more than WR3 production.

No Shakira. No Black Eyed Peas. No Kanye West. In addition to having Tom Brady and the New England Patriots lining up on the other side of the ball, Eagles practice was a little different from usual on Tuesday. The loud, up-tempo music that regularly blares overhead during training camp at the NovaCare Complex was missing. "No music was weird," linebacker DeMeco Ryans said. "It was like, 'Why is it so quiet out here?' "   Kelly barks A testy Chip Kelly became a bit more vocal on the practice field than he typically has been at training camp.
