INDIANAPOLIS - You may have been one of the nearly one million on YouTube to watch Jason Pierre-Paul do 13 backflips in a row when he was at South Florida. If you did, you probably had the same reaction as the New York Giants, who were looking to upgrade the defensive end position two years ago. "We saw 6-foot-4, 288 pounds that could stand up and do a backflip, and we went, 'Wow,' " Giants defensive coordinator Perry Fewell recalled this week. But that kind of wow doesn't always translate into an NFL wow , and it is one of the reasons Pierre-Paul slipped past 14 teams - including the Eagles - in the first round of the 2010 draft.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - Marcus Smith had 14 1/2 sacks last year at Louisville, which was the second in the country. Got most of them the same way most successful college edge-rushers get their sacks: by using his speed to beat the offensive tackle with an outside rush. It hasn't taken the Eagles' first-round pick long, though, to realize his 4.6 speed won't be enough to regularly get him to the quarterback in the NFL. "I've come to realize that speed, in the NFL, doesn't work as good as it did in college," Smith said yesterday after spending 2 hours in the pouring rain jousting with the Patriots' offensive linemen.

THE NUMBERS don't compute, and Brandon Graham knows it. The Eagles linebacker was the 13th player taken in the 2010 draft. Yet, in four NFL seasons, he has made only 12 starts, has played only 1,403 snaps, has registered a grand total of 11 1/2 sacks. The 14th player taken in that draft, Seahawks safety Earl Thomas, has been to three Pro Bowls and twice been selected a first-team All-Pro. The 15th player taken, Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, has been to two Pro Bowls and put up 16 1/2 sacks in his second season.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Jason Pierre-Paul blocked a 47-yard field-goal attempt by rookie Dan Bailey to let the New York Giants survive, 37-34, against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night. Dallas had appeared to tie the game with a successful 47-yarder as time expired, but New York had called a timeout. The move worked, preserving a lead Eli Manning had created in the final minute, ending New York's four-game losing streak. The Giants scored two touchdowns in the final 3 minutes, 14 seconds in a showdown for first place in the NFC East.

WITH THE EAGLES off this week, Sunday's Cowboys at Giants inter-division game will likely draw a lot of Birds' fans. According to Giants defensive end Jason Pierre-Paul, it'll be a blood bath. "We're going to put it on them, man," Pierre-Paul said. "I'm pretty sure the offense is going to get going. The defense is going to get going even more. And the special teams will contribute to it. It's going to be a fight. It's going to be a dogfight. There's going to be a lot of blood spilled out there.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Eli Manning threw three touchdown passes, including a 76-yarder to rising star receiver Victor Cruz, and the New York Giants won an all-or-nothing game to claim the final spot in the NFL playoffs, beating the Dallas Cowboys, 31-14, on Sunday night. The regular season went down to the last game, and it was coach Tom Coughlin's Giants (9-7) who won the NFC East and returned to the postseason for the first time since 2008. The result means the Eagles (8-8)

Cleveland's Peyton Hillis , who rushed for nearly 1,200 yards last season, endeared himself to Cleveland fans with his bulldozing style and earned the cover of Madden NFL 12. But the cover curse is powerful. On Friday, he re-aggravated a hamstring injury that's been bothering him for most of the season, and he'll likely sit out yet another game. Chris Ogbonnaya will take his place Sunday against the Texans. Hillis has been staggering all season. He caused a stir when he decided to sit out a Sept.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Eli Manning was steaming. A simple screen pass was tipped, bounced off the shoulder of a linebacker and was intercepted, setting up a touchdown that could've buried the New York Giants, and the season. Only, he wouldn't allow it. Manning channeled his anger into energy, leading the Giants to two touchdowns in the final minutes to give New York a 37-34 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night. "Sometimes I wish I was in that huddle so I could hear what's being said," Giants coach Tom Coughlin said.

When the Eagles run Yes, the Eagles will run the ball - more than they did against the Cardinals. But don't expect a significant increase with the Giants secondary ailing. LeSean McCoy carried 24 and 23 times in two games against New York last season, and he should get somewhere in that neighborhood Sunday. The big question, though, is how productive he'll be running behind a line that is in tatters. Center Dallas Reynolds and left tackle Demetress Bell had many breakdowns last Sunday, but their better moments were as run blockers.

As long as they pick a guy with better luck than Jerome McDougle, the Eagles should land a decent player Thursday night if they hold on to the 15th pick. Looking back at that spot, not every guy has been a gem, but most have at least been serviceable. Here are some of the recent No. 15s: 2011, Mike Pouncey, C, Dolphins: Started all 16 games for Miami and was arguably their best lineman. Grade: A. 2010, Jason Pierre-Paul, DE, Giants: The guy Eagles fans always think of whenever Brandon Graham's name comes up. Not good.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Eagles are not about to have a quarterback controversy. A controversy implies deeply held feelings and big stakes, none of which are present here. Instead, it will be a quarterback conversation. Michael Vick? Nick Foles? You can discuss this among yourselves, but Chip Kelly has already decided - and properly so - that the job will be Vick's again on Sunday at Tampa Bay if his sore hamstring allows it. The two players do the job differently, and have different strengths, and you can make an argument for either if you are so inclined.

Defending Sprint Cup champion Brad Keselowski and the No. 2 Penske Racing team are now perilously close to falling out of the Chase after being docked six points by NASCAR Tuesday. The No. 2 car will drop from eighth to 10th in the points standings after its front end did not pass inspection following Sunday's FedEx 400 at Dover. The front of his Ford was too low, giving NASCAR cause to fine crew chief Paul Wolfe $25,000 and leave Keselowski just eight points ahead of 11th-place Jeff Gordon for the final Chase spot.

AS I DO every year, I sought out an NFL player personnel executive and asked him for his thoughts on the Eagles' draft. He was largely complimentary of the first Howie Roseman-Chip Kelly collaboration. His opinions of their eight selections: Round 1 Lane Johnson, OT, Oklahoma: "It's hard to find fault with this pick. We had him as the third guy on our board. He's a really good athlete. He's only played the position for a couple of years, but you wouldn't know it by the way he plays or by his knowledge.

NEW YORK - Lane Johnson remembered a Saturday night in East Texas, when he was a backup quarterback in August 2008 preparing for his first game at Kilgore College. Kilgore's opponent was Fort Scott Community College, whose defense featured a little-known end named Jason Pierre-Paul who entered the game with a backflip. Johnson could hardly have imagined he would be playing against Pierre-Paul in the NFL five years later. And even if that scenario was a distant possibility, Johnson would be a quarterback being rushed by Pierre-Paul, certainly not a tackle tasked with blocking him. But this is all part of Johnson's wild ascent.

This is it. Sunday's game against the New York Giants is the last of the season, the last of Andy Reid's 14-year run as Eagles coach (definitely), and the last for Michael Vick in midnight green (almost definitely). Not many predicted that Reid and Vick would go out this way - one loss from a 4-12 finish. Vick, of course, did not play for one of those wins and five of those losses. A concussion and then the decision to go with rookie Nick Foles sidelined the quarterback for six weeks.

HE WAS A "BUST. " That's what Brandon Graham called himself this past spring and summer. I've been doing this gig since 1981, in four towns before working this one, and never had I heard an athlete in any sport describe himself this way. Not Shawn Bradley, not Bobby Hoying, not Jerry Stackhouse, not Ilya Bryzgalov. Belief in yourself, regardless of mounting evidence, is important to the survival of any elite athlete, and critical to any professional one. That belief sometimes requires a controlled form of insanity, like the hitter who believes his 1-for-50 slump is simply a matter of the ball not finding holes.
