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)

Today at 1 p.m. Giants Stadium, East Rutherford, N.J. TV: Fox29 Radio: WYSP-FM (94.1) Line: Eagles by 3 1/2 How They Match Up Eagles defense vs. Jets offense The Eagles' strength on defense this season has been shutting down opposing running games, which is the Jets' biggest weakness on offense. The Eagles are allowing just 3.4 yards per carry, the third-best mark in the NFL. The Jets, with free-agent import Thomas Jones as their feature back, are averaging just 3 yards per carry, which is tied with Kansas City for the worst average in the league.

PERFECT SNAPS. Perfect holds. No excuses. That was the tune Cody Parkey was singing in the Eagles' locker room after the team's 36-10 preseason victory over the visiting Indianapolis Colts yesterday. Parkey was asked whether the NFL's 13-yard extension of the line of scrimmage on extra-point opportunities was to blame for his missed attempt following a 9-yard touchdown run by Kenjon Barner in the first quarter. The second-year placekicker wasn't having it. "Doesn't affect me at all," he said of the rule change.

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...
