Five numbers that mattered in the Eagles' 23-20 win over Buffalo: 15 LeSean McCoy's rushing yards on his final 11 carries Sunday. McCoy rushed for 59 yards on his first nine carries, including a 24-yard run midway through the second quarter on the Bills' second scoring drive. After that, he didn't have another run longer than four yards until a 7-yard run on the first play of the Bills' final possession. McCoy finished with 74 yards on 20 carries. His 3.7 yards-per-carry average equaled his lowest since Week 3 against Miami when he averaged 1.4. 14 One of the names NFL Films had been considering for the Eagles' 2015 highlight film was "Third and a Mile" because of the inordinate number of third-and-long situations they've been in. But not Sunday.

Tonight at 8:30, Lincoln Financial Field TV: 6ABC, ESPN Radio: WYSP-FM (94.1) Line: Eagles by 7 How They Match Up Redskins defense vs. Eagles offense The Eagles' offense was mostly unproductive in the opener against the Packers, compiling just 283 yards and 13 points. The Eagles went three-and-out on five of 11 possessions and produced 16 or fewer net yards on seven of the 11. The job doesn't figure to get any easier against the Redskins, who held Miami to 273 total yards in a 16-13 season-opening win. The Redskins' defense has a lot of speed, particularly at the linebacker position with the trio of Marcus Washington, London Fletcher and Rocky McIntosh.

Let's see now. Going into today's late afternoon soiree with the Giants, the Eagles have lost five straight games. The Giants have lost the last five games they have played at Veterans Stadium. The Eagles have not rushed for a touchdown since they played the Jets on Oct. 3. No Giants quarterback has passed for a touchdown since New York last played the Eagles on Oct. 17. The Giants (6-3) already have won as many games as they did over the entire season last year. The Eagles (4-5)

As wretched as the Eagles played last week against the Arizona Cardinals - especially on offense - they're still 2-1 heading into Sunday night's NFC East showdown with the 2-1 New York Giants. It has been an ugly 2-1, but a victory over their chief NFC East rivals would nearly wipe away the residue of a sloppy start and position the Eagles atop the standings at the quarter pole. A loss to the defending Super Bowl champs would not be a backbreaker, but coming off the drubbing in Arizona and with the Pittsburgh Steelers lying in wait next week, it would justify a 7 or 8 on the panic meter.

MAYBE YOU CAN debate whether it meant that much, in the long run, but you can't debate that this was Chip Kelly's win. The Eagles coach said his team could not let Dallas affect its preparation for Chicago, that it needed to bounce back hard from last week's embarrassing loss in Minnesota, whether the 8:30 p.m. kickoff carried with it a chance to wrap up the NFC East or not. The Eagles went an impressive 2-for-2 in their most dominating victory of...

THE EAGLES WILL retire Brian Dawkins' No. 20 jersey at a ceremony on Sunday night when they play the rival New York Giants at Lincoln Financial Field. The safety played 16 years in the NFL, the first 13 years with the Eagles. He was a second-round pick of the Eagles in the 1996 draft. He played college ball at Clemson. He was not re-signed by the Eagles after the 2008 season. On Feb. 28, 2009, Dawkins signed a 5-year, $17 million contract with the Denver Broncos. Former Eagles president Joe Banner said the handling of Dawkins was one of his biggest regrets.
