Herschel Walker probably will find the opponents and stadium more familiar than his teammates when he makes his first Monday night appearance for the Minnesota Vikings. Walker will play his third game for the Vikings when they meet the New York Giants tonight at Giants Stadium (Channel 6, 9 o'clock). He faced New York seven times as a member of the Dallas Cowboys, and he played home games at Giants Stadium for three seasons while playing for the New Jersey Generals of the United States Football League.

I'VE BEEN to your city many times, and really enjoyed it. My son, an avid Giants fan, was there for his first time last weekend, really looking forward to the game. Sunday morning, he proudly dressed in his Giants shirt. In the hotel lobby, he had people in his face, so he went back to his room before the game and changed his jersey for fear of what it would be like at the stadium. At the stadium, whenever he cheered for the Giants, he was showered with beer and screamed at. He told me one brave Giant fan actually wore his jersey in, and had to have a security guard with him for the entire game.

Made it almost to halftime without a mean word. Then, with 6 minutes, 50 seconds left in the second quarter, I saw him on the ramp between the mezzanine and lower level. "Eagles [expletive], you [expletive]," he shouted as he ran by. I wore a Donovan McNabb jersey to Giants Stadium yesterday, but it was not as bad as I thought it would be. And, truth be told, it was considerably better than when I wore a Dallas jersey to the Linc in October for Terrell Owens' highly anticipated return to Philadelphia in a Dallas uniform.

The New York Giants ended the season with another stinker, getting blown out, 44-7, by the Minnesota Vikings yesterday. The Giants were outscored, 85-16, in the last two games, including a 41-9 loss to Carolina last week in the team's final game at Giants Stadium, to finish 8-8 after starting the season 5-0. "Playing like that 2 weeks in a row is disrespectful to the logo that's on our helmet," center Shaun O'Hara said. "The Giants franchise, organization and fans deserve better than they received the last 2 weeks from the players.

The Eagles open the 1994 schedule where their dreams for the 1993 season were shattered - at Giants Stadium. On Sept. 4, the Eagles will play the New York Giants at the Meadowlands, where quarterback Randall Cunningham broke his leg on Oct. 3 against the Jets, and his team never recovered. How does Cunningham feel going back to the field that claimed his 1993 season? "I have faith all the time, and maybe I won't jump that one time too many before I get hit," Cunningham said.

The Washington Redskins, the offensive juggernaut of the NFL. Not the Minnesota Vikings with their high-revved, pitch-and-catch machine. Not the Denver Broncos with a running game so fierce that passing becomes easy. The Washington Redskins. It is a thought that momentarily defies logic, but two weeks into the season, it's becoming easier to believe. If you're having trouble, ask the New York Giants. The Giants for years have taken pride in their defense, but after the Redskins dismembered them, 50-21, yesterday before 73,170 at Giants Stadium, they were embarrassed about it. Until yesterday, no team had come into Giants Stadium and scored 50 points on the Giants.

"I think we've got Jay Schroeder's number down pretty well right now," Giants linebacker Lawrence Taylor said, without challenge. Schroeder, the Washington quarterback, wasn't very good at all in the Redskins' 17-0 loss to the Giants yesterday in the NFC championship game. But that is becoming a tradition when Schroeder plays the Giants. He is a great young quarterback. He is going to the Pro Bowl this year as an alternate. He is cool. He is poised. He bounced back from a late-season slump to help lift the Redskins into the title game.

Fran Endres, a 41-year-old Eagles fan from Doylestown, looked around the huge Giants Stadium parking lot and marveled at how well the tailgating masses of beer-swigging Eagles and Giants fans were getting along. "My buddy's a Giants fan and he told me not to wear my Eagles jacket up here," Endres said. "But this is really a civil crowd. I don't see any violence. I think I'm going to get my Eagles jacket. " Seconds after Endres spoke those words, a crowd of Eagles fans just a few yards away erupted in a barbaric chant.

When the Eagles fell yet again to the Giants on Oct. 29, Jeremiah Trotter had a feeling the teams would hook up in the playoffs. And the Eagles linebacker looked forward to it, despite the fact the team has not beaten the Giants during his three years with the club. The Giants whipped the Eagles twice this season, and have a string of eight consecutive victories over them, all under coach coach Jim Fassel. But Trotter has no intention of dwelling on the history between the teams.

The Eagles will likely play their final game at Giants Stadium tomorrow. The 33-year-old home to the Giants and Jets will cease to exist sometime next year, making way for the new billion-dollar stadium being built next door at the Meadowlands. While the Eagles have had some great moments in North Jersey - the Herm Edwards and Brian Westbrook miracles to name two - coach Andy Reid said there is one aspect of the stadium he won't lament when the wrecking ball commences. "I'm not going to be sad to see - hopefully, they move the seat - the guy that when I come out of the tunnel talks to me about how many salad bars I need to visit," Reid said.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - There was panic and disharmony on one side, unsavory history on the other, big plays, big mistakes, even a big brawl as the first half ended. Cowboys-Giants. What else? "This is a heated rivalry," Giants defensive end Mathias Kiwanuka said yesterday after New York revived its season with a 31-24 victory over Dallas. "We see each other too often. It's almost like we're in the same city. And sometimes it boils over. " Beating the Cowboys for the second time this season, New York improved to 7-5 and added drama to its matchup with the Eagles next Sunday night at Giants Stadium.

They gathered before sunrise, dozens of die-hard, bleary-eyed Eagles fans ready for a trip up the New Jersey Turnpike to make their mark in Giants country. It was not yet 6 a.m. when the first "E-A-G-L-E-S" cheer of the morning pierced the quiet of a Northeast Philadelphia strip-mall parking lot. By the time a seven-vehicle caravan left the lot, the mood was buoyant. Of the 150 or so Eagles tailgating friends heading for Giants Stadium, only about 20 actually had tickets to go inside to see yesterday's Eagles 23-11 divisional playoff triumph.

It was really, really cold last week in Minnesota, the wind chill at minus-16 just before the Eagles and Vikings kicked off Sunday afternoon. Since the game was played inside the Metrodome, though, that circumstance was just a footnote, instead of the trigger to some sort of historic struggle against the elements, like the 1967 "Ice Bowl" between the Cowboys and Packers. This week, when the Eagles visit the Giants in a divisional round playoff game, nobody on the field is going to be wondering what the weather outside Giants Stadium is like.

Now that he's been through the experience of playing a "home" game on the road, and came away a loser, New Orleans Saints coach Jim Haslett is furious about it all. Back at the team's temporary home in San Antonio, Haslett said yesterday the Saints were at a competitive disadvantage in their 27-10 loss to the New York Giants at Giants Stadium on Monday night - even if they were wearing their home jerseys and saw their nickname painted in one...

New Jersey's incoming governor wants to see a new Giants Stadium as part of a renewal of the state's Meadowlands Sports Complex. "The place needs a new look, a fresh look, and hopefully I can provide that," Senate President Richard Codey, who is to take over next week when Gov. James E. McGreevey resigns, told the Star-Ledger of Newark. The New York Giants have been considering renovating or replacing their stadium, which at 28 is among the oldest in the NFL. The team said it would bear most of the cost.
