RESILIENCE somehow defeated hypothermia and malaise and, ultimately, resulted in a happy delirium. Brent Celek slid in the snow 10 yards shy of a sure touchdown then giddily ran back to the huddle, the game in the bag. Lane Johnson flopped on his back, looking like a snow angel in the end zone. Over 3 1/2 hours of whiteout insanity, the Eagles turned a nightmare before Christmas into their own wintry fairy land. "Most fun game I've ever been involved with," Jason Kelce said.

MICHAEL VICK twice compiled passer ratings of 100 for three games in a row. He began the 2010 season at 101.9, 108.0 and 119.2. In doing so he stole the starting job from Kevin Kolb. He finished the lost 2011 season at 107.0, 107.9 and 104.1, a meaningless run but one that supplied hope for the next season; a meritless hope, as it turned out. The Eagles were 5-1 in those six games. The common denominator: Vick played behind healthy, cohesive starting offensive lines. Nick Foles now has compiled passer ratings of at least 100 for four games in a row: 158.3, 149.3, 104.3 and 112. In doing so, he stole the starting job from Vick.

The Eagles offensive line includes the three-man "Elderly Council," a "secretary" who is the line's leader, and the "little brother" who is the unit's most promising player. These characters account for perhaps the biggest difference between the 2012 Eagles, who braced for a head coach's dismissal last December, and this year's team, which is in playoff contention entering Sunday's game against the Arizona Cardinals. Left tackle Jason Peters, left guard Evan Mathis, and right guard Todd Herremans form the Elderly Council.

BRANDON BOYKIN made the play of the game, intercepting Robert Griffin III with 32 seconds left, but the play that set up the play of the game was made by Eagles punter Donnie Jones. With 3 minutes and 37 seconds remaining in yesterday's 24-16 Eagles victory over the visiting Washington Redskins, Jones went back to punt from the Birds' 26, just after a first-down ruling on a Nick Foles third-down run was reversed by replay. (Have there ever been more calls made on replay than there were in this game?

CHIP KELLY said yesterday that his kick-return setup is a "fluctuating situation," as the team tries to determine how quickly new return man and wide receiver Brad Smith can fit into the Eagles' schemes. "We're going to get a chance today to see Brad, how he fits in as a returner," Kelly said. "We also can use Bryce [Brown] back there, [in addition to Brandon Boykin]. It's a fluctuating situation. " Kelly also kept open the possibility of going back to Damaris Johnson, if Johnson is active.

THE ONLY Eagle to manage a touchdown at Lincoln Financial Field since September seems very likely to be in the lineup Sunday against the Redskins. But it might be a mistake to pin your hopes for an end to the 10-game home losing streak on the scoring prowess of Najee Goode, who clambered into the Linc end zone with a blocked punt against the Giants Oct. 27. After entering last Sunday's game in Green Bay when Mychal Kendricks went down, the second-year reserve linebacker saw a sure pick-six interception go through his hands.

Earl Wolff's knee injury will keep him out for several weeks, general manager Howie Roseman said on his weekly radio show on WIP-FM (94.1). Linebacker Mychal Kendricks (knee) and tackle Jason Peters (quadriceps) also left Sunday's 27-13 win over the Green Bay Packers, but neither injury is as serious as Wolff's. The status of Kendricks and Peters for Sunday's game against Washington is up in the air. The good news for the Eagles is that Kendricks did not suffer a torn anterior cruciate ligament, which would have ended his season.

IT MAY NOT have been another record-tying performance on Sunday by Nick Foles, but once again the second-year quarterback stepped up for the Eagles. With Michael Vick inactive because of a hamstring injury, Foles tossed three more touchdown passes in a 27-13 victory at Green Bay, making it 10 TDs in two consecutive road wins. Foles has thrown 16 touchdowns without a turnover this season. Still declining to commit to Foles or Vick for Sunday's home game against Washington, coach Chip Kelly said Foles would practice with the first team today while Vick remains limited.

GREEN BAY - Some of the younger Eagles were awestruck by Lambeau Field, where the south end zone scoreboard displays the dates of the Green Bay Packers' 13 NFL titles. Allen Barbre was not. Barbre played three seasons for the Pack, after they drafted him out of Missouri Southern State in 2007. His seven career starts all came for Green Bay in 2009. Barbre, 29, the Eagles' top offensive-line reserve, ended up playing most of yesterday's 27-13 Eagles victory over the Packers after left tackle Jason Peters, the fulcrum of the o-line, left with a quadriceps injury.

One day after the trade of starting nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga, Eagles coach Chip Kelly mentioned Bennie Logan, Clifton Geathers, and Damion Square as players who will fill the void. Although Sopoaga started in the base defense, he played only 39 percent of the snaps. Logan, a third-round pick, has taken 28 percent of the defensive snaps this season. Geathers has taken 19 percent and Square 4 percent. "We felt like we had a couple younger guys that we really need to continue to get in there, and when they've played, they continue to really produce," Kelly said Wednesday.
