When the Eagles have the ball When the Eagles and Redskins met in Week 4, Sam Bradford threw for 270 yards and three touchdowns - and Bradford is playing better now than he was then. That should be an encouraging sign for the Eagles, who will have the opportunity to move the ball against Washington. The Redskins allow 240.2 passing yards per game, but the 7.7 yards per attempt is one of the worst averages in the league. Opposing quarterbacks have thrown for 26 touchdowns and only nine interceptions against Washington, plus 11 passes of 40-plus yards.

DeMarco Murray does not have an explanation for why his role has shrunk, and the underused, high-priced running back remained diplomatic Tuesday when discussing his demotion. "At the end of the day, you've got a position to make the playoffs, and that's what a lot of people's focus is on," Murray said. "I can't worry about how many plays I'm getting and things of that nature. I can only control what I can control, and whenever I get in, I just have to make the best of it. I can't worry about it. I'm blessed.

AS EXPECTED, defensive lineman Fletcher Cox was named to the Pro Bowl on Tuesday, the first such honor in Cox's four-year Eagles career. Darren Sproles made it for the second year in a row as a returner, and left tackle Jason Peters was tabbed for the eighth time, his sixth as an Eagle. A source with knowledge of the situation said safety Malcolm Jenkins, center Jason Kelce and special teams ace Chris Maragos will be alternates. "It feels great. It feels really great," Cox said in quotes released by the team.

By the time the fourth quarter began on Sunday night against the Cardinals, quarterback Sam Bradford had been knocked down a half-dozen times, once hard enough on his tender left shoulder that he had to leave the game for a play until the throbbing subsided. The score was already 30-10 and it would be hard to blame Bradford if he had enjoyed about as much of the evening as he could stand. So when Jason Peters couldn't contain his assignment on the left side of the line and Bradford stepped up only to see an untouched blitzing linebacker about to lay him out again, what happened next has to be placed in context.

Chip Kelly The coach's fourth-down decision wasn't a bad one. He knew the Eagles needed to get points against the Cardinals. But the play was questionable. He chose Ryan Mathews over Darren Sproles and DeMarco Murray - running backs who had more success in short yardage this season - and ran him wide. Bill Davis The defensive coordinator made a questionable late substitution on the goal line in the first quarter. Davis sent in his nickel personnel and the Cardinals predictably ran the ball against the smaller defense.

Cris Collinsworth watched Sam Bradford step forward in the pocket with a crowd of defenders around him Sunday in the Eagles-Bills game. He threw a 53-yard touchdown pass to Nelson Agholor. "Wow," Collinsworth uttered to himself. Collinsworth, the Emmy award-winning analyst for NBC's Sunday Night Football, will be part of the broadcast team for the Eagles-Cardinals game on Sunday. He studied the Eagles this week and his first takeaway was the performance of Bradford. "I thought how he played last week was a big step," Collinsworth said Thursday in a telephone interview.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Jeffery Lurie was sweating, his tufty white hair a-muss, but the spring in his bobbing gait had a youthful zest to it. Asked to stop and speak, he politely declined. He had said enough for one day. Lurie had just "broken it down" after the Eagles' 35-28 upset of the team he once loved; the team he tried to buy. After a win, and after Chip Kelly addresses the club, the team allows that day's hero to go to the middle of the team huddle and send the Eagles off with inspiration; break it down, as it were.

Ryan Mathews will miss a second straight game and the status of Jason Peters and Cedric Thornton is still unclear as the Eagles travel to New England for Sunday's game against the Patriots. Mathews was ruled out on Friday after not practicing this week. He suffered a concussion on Nov. 15 against Miami. The Eagles rushed for just 68 yards without Mathews on Thanksgiving against Detroit. Peters, who is dealing with back and ankle injuries, was a full participant at practice each day this week.
