The Eagles had four players named to the all-pro second team by the Associated Press: Linebacker Connor Barwin, defensive lineman Fletcher Cox, tackle Jason Peters, and returner Darren Sproles. Barwin led the NFC with 141/2 sacks and fell two votes shy of first-team all-pro linebacker Elvis Dumervil of the Baltimore Ravens. Dumervil finished the season with 83 tackles, 141/2 sacks, 21 hurries, and two forced fumbles. Cox did not make the Pro Bowl, which surprised Eagles coach Chip Kelly.

REMEMBER Chris Baker? Jason Peters just barely does. The Eagles' left tackle was asked yesterday about his Sept. 21 ejection from this season's previous Eagles-Redskins game, avenging Baker's blindside block that leveled quarterback Nick Foles. "Hadn't even thought about it," Peters said yesterday, as the Birds prepared for Saturday's NFC East rematch in Landover, Md. "We're going down there to win . . . Point blank. Whatever we've got to do to win, that's what we're going down to do. " Peters said that since Baker is a nose tackle, they probably won't encounter one another that much.

IT DIDN'T get much notice, given that it happened in the course of a soul-crushing defeat, but the Eagles went three-for-three in the red zone last Sunday night against Dallas. The Birds have struggled with the short field all season, especially in the running game, but handing the ball to Chris Polk produced touchdowns of 1 and 5 yards. Darren Sproles also added a 1-yard run. LeSean McCoy? Just before the Sproles TD, McCoy got the ball on a run to the left from the Dallas 4, and he seemed about to score, but safety Barry Church did an excellent job of stopping him just short.

It is never the one thing, not in football, not in any sport, and certainly not in life. Chip Kelly stepped to a podium inside AT&T Stadium after the Eagles had beaten the Cowboys, 33-10, on Thursday, and the first thing he said was that the Eagles' offensive line had just played its finest game of the season - and it probably had. The Eagles rushed for 256 yards, averaging 5.7 per attempt, and Mark Sanchez was sacked just once, and it would be...

ARLINGTON, Texas - It's only gaudy if you can't pull it off. LeSean McCoy rolled out of the locker room and headed toward coach Chip Kelly, who actually took a step backward and began to chuckle. Kelly reached forward, rubbed the lapel of McCoy's white leather jacket and said, "What's this?" "This," said McCoy, "is my Thanksgiving outfit. " He dressed as a guy nicknamed "Shady" should dress, a walking PETA nightmare: Timberland boots, a dark-brown designer leather duffel bag, a light-brown ostrich skin backpack and - the topper - something like Michael Jackson's jacket from "Beat It," only not red. It was as white as Shady's smile, with gold snaps and zippers.

LeSean McCoy wanted to know whether he was cocky. The running back was walking to the podium after the Eagles' 43-24 win over the Titans when he stopped a reporter and asked, "Do you think I'm too cocky? Of all the players you have known, would you put me in the top 10?" You bet. McCoy was in a playful mood. He had just rushed for 130 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries, and even a sarcastic remark a few moments later at the start of his news conference elicited a laugh from the tailback.

OF ALL the units of a football team, the offensive line might be the one most influenced by consistently having the same players in place. A year ago, the Eagles' offensive line benefited from having all five starters together for the entire season. Obviously, that has not been the case this season, as a preseason suspension to Lane Johnson and a slew of injuries to his fellow linemates have prevented the starting offensive linemen from taking a single regular-season snap together as a unit.

HOUSTON - LeSean McCoy notched his second 100-yard rushing performance in three games yesterday and yawned. Yawned as in no big deal, folks. Just another day at the office of the defending NFL rushing champion. "It's weird," he said after rushing for 117 yards on 23 carries in the Eagles' 31-21 win over the Houston Texans. "Every time I get 100 yards, [people act like] it's a big deal. But I'm used to just doing it. " It was the 21st 100-yard game of McCoy's career. Had seven of them last year on the way to his rushing crown.

Most valuable player OFFENSE: Jason Peters The all-pro left tackle has been so good that it's easy to take him for granted. With other key pieces missing on the offensive line, Peters has been a security blanket on Nick Foles' blind side. He kept elite pass rushers Robert Quinn and Jason Pierre-Paul from sacking Foles during the last two games. Peters has not allowed a sack since the season opener. DEFENSE: Malcolm Jenkins Although he might not be a star, Jenkins is a significant upgrade at safety and has been valuable to the secondary.

The Eagles offensive line, like the rest of the team, set the tone early in Sunday's 27-0 win over the New York Giants. The line opened big holes for the running game and, for the most part, kept the pressure off quarterback Nick Foles. And considering the way their counterparts on the Giants offensive line were overmatched, it made the Eagles blockers look like a group of all-pros. While Giants quarterback Eli Manning was on the run all evening, Foles had plenty of time. New York quarterbacks were sacked eight times, including six of Manning, while Foles was sacked just once for 3 yards.
