FIVE NUMBERS of significance following the Eagles' 24-17 win over the Jets: 3.1 Yards allowed per carry by the Eagles' defense. It's the best in the league through three weeks. Even without inside linebackers Kiko Alonso and Mychal Kendricks and defensive end Cedric Thornton, the defense held the Jets' running backs to 34 yards on 12 carries. They've given up a league-best 11 rushing first downs in three games. They've allowed only 11 runs of 7 yards or more (in 84 attempts).

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)

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...
