WITH HURRICANE Joaquin changing course, the Eagles and Washington Redskins don't have to. Weather forecasters reported Friday that Joaquin was headed farther out to sea and away from the East Coast, which means the Eagles will play the Redskins at FedEx Field in Landover, Md., Sunday at 1 p.m. as scheduled. The NFL had been monitoring the situation in the event the severe weather would have forced a postponement or relocation, but Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan lifted a state of emergency in eight counties, including Prince George's County, where FedEx Field is located.

LANDOVER, Md. - Caleb Sturgis' first game as the Eagles' kicker didn't go as he envisioned. Now the question is whether he will have a second game with the team. Sturgis replaced Cody Parkey, who went on injured reserve with a groin injury last week. Coincidentally, for the second straight year an Eagles placekicker exited FedEx Field on a major downer. Sturgis missed his lone field-goal attempt and an extra-point kick Sunday in a 23-20 loss to the Washington Redskins at FedEx Field.

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.

THE NFL is "monitoring the forecast" and staying in touch with the teams ahead of Sunday's Eagles at Redskins game, scheduled for 1 p.m. at FedEx Field in Landover, Md., a league spokesman said. Hurricane Joaquin could bring torrential rain and 30-plus-mph winds to the Mid-Atlantic region by then. The most logical alternative would be to move the game to Monday night (but not, Eagles fans hope, Tuesday, recalling the snow-postponed game of 2010 in which the underdog Vikings defeated the Eagles and seemed to crush that team's spirit)

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.

The NFL is monitoring Hurricane Joaquin's projected path and investigating scheduling contingencies in case the Eagles-Redskins game on Sunday needs to be moved from FedEx Field in Landover, Md. The league said Thursday in a statement that "there is no change in the schedule for the game at this point. " It's scheduled for Sunday at 1 p.m. One option being discussed is moving the game to Detroit, according to the NFL Network. Detroit has been used in the past when games could not be played in a team's home venue.

Cody Parkey and Caleb Sturgis did nothing Thursday. This is an exaggeration, of course, but just a slight one. They're competing for the Eagles' placekicking job, but at the team's final day of mandatory minicamp, their activities seemed more like vacation than they did competition. The Eagles' offense and defense practiced red-zone formations and strategy on one field at the NovaCare Complex. There, Sam Bradford, Chase Daniel and Carson Wentz were completing passes and sending defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz into an expletive-laden lather, and that action occupied everyone's attention.

FIFTEEN PLAYS, 90 yards; 5 minutes, 39 seconds. Those were the particulars of the Washington drive Sunday that took the Eagles from flawed-but-viable, in position to limp away from FedEx Field at 2-2, to 1-3, plunging them into a world of massive scorn, disappointment, censure and obloquy. Big-time obloquy, for sure. Eagles defensive coordinator Bill Davis has watched the tape. He knows how easily Washington quarterback Kirk Cousins sliced through Davis' battered troops, facing third down only twice, once at third-and-1, once at third-and-6, converting both.

LANDOVER, Md. - Sam Bradford seemed committed to burying himself beneath his locker Sunday, so low did his head hang, so lost and lonely did he look in the quiet of that visiting locker room at FedEx Field. He sat there for a long time before pushing himself to his feet and trudging off to take a shower, the Eagles' 23-20 loss to the Redskins still sending him to a place somewhere between frustration and bewilderment. The game hates Bradford right now. Whatever he does right isn't enough, and whatever he does wrong is too much.

The storm that changed the Eagles' playoff course a year ago built for two miserable weeks, before finally settling over FedEx Field in mid-December for a dousing that blew their chances out to sea for good. Nearly 10 months later, they return to the scene on a day in which the downpour will be more literal than figurative, but they return to face a game that could well decide who they are this time around, too. Yes, the Washington Redskins stunk then, and, yes, they stink now. Even so, the question remains whether the Eagles are good enough to beat them when they need to. There is every chance that, regardless of the outcome, Sunday's game will be marked with an asterisk because of the conditions.

HURRICANE JOAQUIN isn't going to be hovering over FedEx Field in Landover, Md., by Sunday afternoon - it probably won't even be up to North Carolina by then - but it could be producing enough wind and rain, for a region already soaked by previous storm systems this week, that flooding will be a concern. The NFL said yesterday evening it continues to monitor the situation and stay in touch with both teams. The NFL Network said moving the game to Detroit's domed Ford Field has been considered, but somebody would have to make a call on that pretty soon, one would think.
