In a drastic departure, the Eagles defense had to answer questions about picking up the offense after yet another downer at Lincoln Financial Field. While it wasn't enough to stop their inexplicable home skid, or from preventing Dallas from taking over first place in the NFC East, the Eagles defense held its own during Sunday's 17-3 loss to the visiting Cowboys. The Eagles (3-4) have now lost a franchise-record nine consecutive home games, but this one was more the fault of the offense, whose lone score was set up by the defense.

THREE LITTLE WORDS for all you Eagles fans who went ballistic when a photo of Domonic Brown wearing a white Dez Bryant Cowboys jersey appeared on his Twitter feed yesterday: Get over it. Reaction to the pic - which included a guy who looks like Phillies pitcher Mike Adams (to Brown's left) - was swift and, for the most part, hate-filled. "I'm starting a #TradeBrown page you got to go!" wrote one tweeter. Another wrote that Brown had committed an "unforgivable sin. " Still another wrote: "Leave.

THE EXODUS took place in two waves, each of them following a fourth-quarter interception by a rookie fourth-round draft pick thrust into the first NFL game of his career. The fans filed out of their plastic rows into the concrete aisles, many en route to that magical repository of revisionism where people go to forget everything they said over the previous week about the new starting quarterback and the potential of his offense. Turns out, the Eagles can look just as bad with Nick Foles as with Mike Vick.

ATTEMPTING TO solve the problem of the Eagles in the red zone is like attempting to solve the problem of the kind of weather that rolled through the Delaware Valley yesterday. Our happiness is mitigated by the laws of physics, and there is no exception provided to an offense that has long lacked the power personnel to thrive in tight spaces. That the Eagles will enter Sunday's matchup with the Cowboys with one of the poorest performing red-zone offenses in the NFL isn't so much a fixable problem as it is an inevitability of their roster.

The Eagles have starting cornerbacks Cary Williams and Bradley Fletcher switch sides during practice. They do this in case defensive coordinator Bill Davis wants to have one of them follow an opposing wide receiver around the field during a game. That has not been Davis' preferred style this season. He has kept the starting cornerbacks on designated sides - Williams on the right, Fletcher on the left - and that's expected to continue when the Eagles face the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.

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.

BRUCE FELDMAN tapped out a troubling tweet yesterday. "Spoke w longtime NFL personnel man who said in wake of Aaron Hernandez teams may use police experts to check prospects tattoos," wrote the CBS Sports columnist/commentator. Hernandez is the former Patriots tight end who is charged with murder. He has tattoos everywhere, including his arms, hands, chest, stomach and back. Authorities evaluated the tats to see if any were gang-related and came away empty. Yet, if Feldman's tweet is to be believed, the league is still considering hiring someone to snoop out gang-ink on its players.

HERE WE go again. Three years, ago Dolphins general manager Jeff Ireland was skewered when, in a predraft interview, he asked Dez Bryant if Bryant's mother was a prostitute. On Monday, Mike Florio of NBC Sports and ProFootballTalk told radio host Dan Patrick that some teams at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis wanted to know if Notre Dame linebacker Mante Te'o was gay. On Tuesday, former Colorado tight end Nick Kasa told ESPN radio that some of the questions he was asked at the combine were a bit personal.

IT WAS A RECORD that stood for 11 years. That's how long Nick Nolte's mug shot had been atop the worst-of-all-time list. But alas, the wild-haired photo of the scowling actor - taken after his arrest for DUI in 2002 - has been topped. By Raiders starting defensive lineman Desmond Bryant. On Sunday morning, a shirtless Bryant was arrested after showing up uninvited at a neighbor's house in Miami and causing a commotion. According to the police report, he was drunk, which isn't hard to believe judging by the post-arrest photo that accompanies this column.

ARLINGTON, Texas - After weeks of searching, the Eagles finally found an opponent that cared as little about a football game as them. The host Cowboys, in the thick of a pathetic NFC playoff race, did not allow the import of the night's contest to influence their generally listless effort. They won, 38-33; but, really, there were few reasons to be impressed. Neither did the Pokes pander to the national television audience; but then, that is a tradition in Big D. They hadn't won on Sunday Night Football in their last eight tries.
