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)

The Eagles' defense has prepared for the Redskins' running game by looking back. The unit's early-season struggles against the run hit bottom against Washington in Week 4, when the Birds allowed 169 rushing yards and 4.8 yards per carry - both season highs - and couldn't stop the Redskins late in the game as they chewed up the clock. The Eagles have reviewed that game tape, with defensive coordinator Sean McDermott pointing out group and individual mistakes, several players said.

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.

Editor's note: This story originally appeared in the Daily News on July 12, 2005. IT WILL BE remembered as one of the great lies in Philadelphia sports history, uttered by a man whose only concern at the time was appeasing his creditors and getting back to the blackjack table so he could lose what was left of his fortune. In 1984, a forgettable 6-9-1 Eagles season was interrupted by the unsettling news that financially strapped club owner Leonard Tose was considering selling a chunk of his team to Phoenix-based real-estate developer James Monaghan and - gulp - moving it to the Valley of the Sun. The Eagles in . . . Phoenix?
