Two out of three ain't bad. Actually, for Central Bucks East, it was much better than that. With a half-second left in the second overtime, sophomore Tommy Strasburger was fouled on a three-point attempt and made his second and third free throws to give the visiting Patriots a dramatic 50-49 victory over stunned Central Bucks South before a lively crowd Friday night in Warrington. The deciding free throw rattled around the rim before finding the twine. "I was just trying to follow the routine I use in practice," Strasburger said.

The Kansas City Chiefs hired former Vikings coach Brad Childress, reuniting him with Andy Reid. Childress, who spent last season as the offensive coordinator for the Cleveland Browns, will be the Chiefs' spread game analyst and work on special projects. He spent five years as the Minnesota head coach (2006-10), a stint that included two division titles (2008-09). The team was 12-4 in 2009. Childress previously spent seven seasons, from 1999 to 2005, with the Eagles, where he worked with Reid.

Bears at 49ers 8:30 p.m., ESPN Line: 49ers by 6. The skinny: When Chicago quarterback Jay Cutler got hurt last November, the Bears' promising season fell apart with no capable backup behind him. The Bears went from 7-3 to losing five of their final six, finishing 8-8. Chicago acquired an insurance policy during the offseason, and now the Bears (7-2) will see whether that move pays off. Jason Campbell is set to make his first NFL start in more than a year in place of Cutler (concussion)

Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon and safety Brandon Meriweather appear set to play Sunday against the Eagles. Coach Mike Shanahan said after practice on Friday that both will play, barring any setbacks over the weekend. Their returns will give the Redskins a badly needed big-play receiver and an even more badly needed starting-caliber safety. Garcon tore a ligament in the second toe of his right foot in the season opener and has been struggling with the pain ever since. He returned to play in two more games before missing the last four.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. - The Buffalo Bills will take the win any way they can get it. After a wild back-and-forth fourth quarter, Ryan Fitzpatrick found David Nelson wide open on fourth down for a 6-yard touchdown pass with 14 seconds left to secure a 38-35 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. "I don't know what happened, but I think they misaligned to be honest," Fitzpatrick said, in noting how wide open Nelson was over the middle. "I was lucky enough to see it. " Chalk it up to luck, pluck and resilience, because the Bills are showing they're improved.

ASHBURN, Va. - In front of Donovan McNabb's locker, near three pairs of cleats and four empty plastic food containers, sat two boxes, one on top of the other, with stickers warning this in big, bold letters: That is anything but the way Mike Shanahan has handled the franchise quarterback he hand-picked to run the Redskins' offense in his first season in Washington. Over the last 11 days, Shanahan hasn't been gentle. He's been blunt, outspoken, and all over the map with his reasons for benching McNabb in the final two minutes of a game against Detroit on Oct. 31. Shanahan's answers have been so far-reaching that John Feinstein, a best-selling author who writes for the Washington Post, said on the radio this week in Washington that Shanahan used racial coding to defend benching McNabb, and he called that a firable offense.

The Washington Redskins were of two minds yesterday morning as they returned from Easter weekend to resume their offseason conditioning workouts. The players were pumped that their NFC East-rival Eagles had given them an unexpected gift in six-time Pro Bowl quarterback Donovan McNabb, but there was also sadness for incumbent quarterback Jason Campbell, a beloved and respected teammate who likely will depart Washington soon. "I was very shocked when I heard about the trade," said Lorenzo Alexander, who has moved from defensive line to outside linebacker in new coordinator Jim Haslett's 3-4 scheme.

Asante Samuel views tackling the same way a Victoria's Secret model views changing the oil in her car. Can't do it and isn't all that interested in learning how. "Everybody saw my tape before they signed me," the Eagles cornerback said several weeks ago when first asked how a guy who is so good at picking off passes can be so bad at wrapping up ballcarriers. "They knew what I was capable of. " The fact that Samuel can't tackle hardly is a revelation. The Eagles knew it last year and still handed the two-time Pro Bowler a 6-year, $57 million contract.

Jason Campbell got dressed and took a seat inside his locker. He reached for one of his shoes but didn't put it on. The Washington quarterback stared blankly for a few moments. A Redskins public relations official asked him if he was OK. Campbell didn't reply. On his final play of the Redskins' 27-24 loss to the Eagles, Campbell could not convert a fourth-and-1 play - and was slammed to the ground by Juqua Parker. That caused Campbell to black out, he said. And when he awoke, he said his left arm was numb.

Each week, Daily News football writer Paul Domowitch will tell you the things he will be keeping his eyes on during that week's game. Here is how things panned out yesterday: 1. The pressure on Campbell. The Redskins' offensive line has been ravaged by injuries and hasn't been able to protect quarterback Jason Campbell very well. Coming into yesterday's game, the Redskins were 30th in the league in sacks per pass play. The Eagles sacked Campbell six times in the first meeting last month.
