FIFA, SOCCER'S world governing body, would like to take some time out from all of its alleged backdoor dealings and scandals to make the following decree: Islamic headscarves are a violation of the outfit's dress code and are now banned from all competitions. However, the kicker here is not FIFA's decision, but its timing. Just prior to kickoff in a women's Olympic qualifier between Iran and Jordan last Friday, officials decided that the Iranian players' little white headscarves were illegal and disqualified the team.

DESPITE HOW they've looked the past few weeks, the Redskins are not the Cleveland Browns. They are capable of derailing the Eagles' late playoff push, which would really make for a sour Christmas week around here. Washington will need some help from the Birds to do that, though. As dangerous as Clinton Portis and a solid secondary can be, back on Oct. 5, I thought the 'Skins were the better team along both lines of scrimmage. I'll be surprised if that remains the case on Sunday. Some Birds fans seem to be worried about the weather, which looks cold and maybe rainy.

$1.2 billion. That's the price Mayor Street put on the new baseball and football playpens last week. He hasn't said how the city will pay for its share. Naming rights could fetch a big chunk of change. The Washington Redskins are getting $205 million over 27 years just for calling their crib FedEx Field. Alas, reports say the Phillies and Eagles probably will keep those rights. So how about selling the naming rights to other landmarks? Taco Bell paved the way with a 1996 April Fool's ad saying it had renamed the Liberty Bell.

LANDOVER, Md. - Robert Griffin III threw for one touchdown and had a fumble turn into another score Monday night as the Washington Redskins earned a 17-16 win over the New York Giants at FedEx Field. Washington pulled within one game of the NFC East lead. The Redskins improved to 6-6 with their third straight victory, tied with the Dallas Cowboys and on the heels of the Giants, who have lost three of four to fall to 7-5. Griffin completed 13 of 21 passes for 163 yards and ran five times for 72 yards, breaking Cam Newton's NFL record for yards rushing by a rookie quarterback.

Home may be where the heart is, but for the Indiana University football team it's also where the money is. Indiana will abandon its Bloomington, Ind., stadium on Saturday to play a home game against Penn State in Landover, Md., a locale roughly 350 miles closer to the Nittany Lions' campus than its own. Why? Well, there are roughly three million reasons. That's how many dollars Indiana was guaranteed to switch the Big Ten matchup to FedEx Field. That's a pretty significant sum for the Hoosiers' program, which generates the second-lowest football revenue in the Big Ten and historically has had trouble filling 52,000-seat Memorial Stadium.

LANDOVER, Md. - Eagles safety Kurt Coleman made a good first impression in his second chance this season in the starting lineup. Coleman intercepted three passes as the Eagles broke a four-game losing streak Sunday with a 20-13 victory over the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field. Coleman became the 10th player in team history with three interceptions in a game and the first since Joe Scarpati on Oct. 23, 1966 in a game at the New York Giants. Coleman started the first three games this season, but was benched during the third, a 29-16 loss to the New York Giants due to shoddy tackling.

LANDOVER, Md. - Cody Parkey didn't flinch, refused to offer any excuses, and took his share of blame for the Eagles' 27-24 loss to the Washington Redskins Saturday at FedEx Field. The Eagles rookie entered the game having connected on 29 of 31 field-goal attempts this year, then inexplicably missed his first two tries, from 34 and 46 yards. They both went wide right. And now so have the Eagles' playoff chances. The Eagles (9-6) have to beat the New York Giants next week and hope the Dallas Cowboys lose their last two games against Indianapolis and these same Redskins.

Washington Redskins linebacker LaVar Arrington, a former Penn State star, was fined $5,000 by the NFL yesterday - raising his season total to $35,000 - for pushing Cardinals wideout David Boston. Boston also was fined $5,000 by the league. He taunted Arrington by tossing him the ball after a tackle in the Redskins' 20-10 victory Sunday. Both players were called for personal fouls on the play. Arrington has been fined four times by the league in 2001. The Redskins face the Eagles tomorrow at FedEx Field, in Landover, Md. Meanwhile, Redskins cornerback Darrell Green is thinking about playing another season.

WHAT GOES around sometimes does indeed come around. It was 2 years ago last week the Eagles went to FedEx Field and embarrassed the Washington Redskins, 59-28. "Two franchises passed each other in the night, rapidly if not necessarily permanently, because there is no such thing as permanently, not in the NFL, not in 2010," Daily News columnist Rich Hofmann wrote. Washington was flailing, with former Eagles QB Donovan McNabb at the helm. Michael Vick was on his way to the Pro Bowl, Vick writing one of the most amazing comeback stories in the history of sport.

Sometimes, the bettors get it right. Oddsmakers made the Washington Redskins two-point favorites over Minnesota to start the week just as the Vikings replaced former head coach Brad Childress with Leslie Frazier. However, bettors - apparently assuming that the coaching change would revive the foundering Vikings - threw money at Minnesota with both hands, forcing a hefty four-point swing by kickoff. Suddenly two-point favorites, the Vikings rewarded the betting public's faith by holding off the Redskins, 17-13, at FedEx Field on Sunday.

LANDOVER, Md. - Bradley Fletcher had little to say Saturday night, and Cary Williams did not speak at all. Not that it mattered much. The performance of the two men spoke volumes, and the reverberating theme was this: The meaningful portion of the Eagles' season is probably over, and the team's need to get better in the secondary has never been more apparent. Even defensive coordinator Bill Davis, an ardent defender of Fletcher's ability to be a cover corner, decided he had seen enough in the fourth quarter of the Eagles' 27-24 loss to wretched Washington at FedEx Field.

Much has been made about culture and scheme ever since Eagles coach Chip Kelly was caught on camera during the Sunday night game against the New York Giants last month telling a practice squad player that the former always trumps the latter. The next clip in the NFL.com montage that put microphones on Kelly and quarterback Nick Foles did not get nearly as much attention, but it was equally as fascinating. "Hey," Foles tells his offensive teammates, "let's make sure we play at our tempo right now. Let's go as fast as we can. " Going fast is part of the Eagles' offensive scheme, but it is also part of their culture.

NONE OF US knew what to expect in last season's Eagles opener, the dawn of the Chip Kelly era, on a Monday night at FedEx Field. Washington went in favored by 3 1/2 points, down from six initially, not because of some dramatic uptick in respect for the Birds, but because there was uncertainty over whether Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III would be ready to play, having sat out the preseason as he recovered from ACL surgery. After all, the Redskins were 10-6, defending NFC East champs, the Eagles were coming off a 4-12 season.

NICK FOLES still hasn't won a regular-season game at Lincoln Financial Field. Of course, under Chip Kelly, Foles has started only one regular-season game at the Linc, and we all know how that went, even if the "why" remains a mystery. But it's an odd thing, to have a second-year quarterback, now ensconced as the top gun, about to make his 11th career start, and the home fans have never seen him walk off a winner. "It just hasn't worked out that way," Foles said yesterday, as the 5-5 Eagles prepared for Sunday's visit from the 3-6 Washington Redskins, who might represent the Birds' best remaining opportunity to end a 10-game home losing streak that dates to Sept.

LANDOVER, Md. - After watching a full game of Chip Kelly football, even if it includes just one supercharged half, fans may need to recover and relax with something a bit more slow and soothing - like jai alai, for instance. The Eagles opened the ADHD era with a 33-27 win over the Redskins that required a good bit of holding on at the end. In fact, the Eagles had the good fortune to get two chances to catch the onside kick that could have turned the game around entirely. They got the bounce the second time and put away a game that should have been put away after a mind-boggling first half.

LANDOVER, Md. - Chip Kelly introduced himself to the NFL last night, sort of like Cortez introduced himself to the Aztecs. You might recall, Kelly referenced Cortez back when he was hired, after being asked if he would scurry back to college, should his attempt to transplant his flashy offensive scheme end in failure. Kelly said he had burned his boats, like the Spanish explorer who didn't want his fellow conquistadors thinking they could go back home. This morning, a return to college anytime soon seems unlikely for the man who burned down FedEx Field last night, shocking the "Monday Night Football" audience and the host Washington Redskins in a 33-27 Eagles victory that shouldn't have been that close.

Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III was knocked out of Sunday's game vs. the Ravens, sending the fans at FedEx Field - and some would say the entire NFL - into a worried sweat. As it turned out, the exciting rookie only suffered a sprained right knee. An MRI showed that "everything is clear" in terms of significant ligament damage, said team spokesman Tony Wyllie. Wyllie said Griffin did not have a major knee injury and ruled out a season-ending torn anterior cruciate ligament.
