Mark Sanchez has played in 70 regular-season and postseason games, but never one at Lambeau Field. The Eagles quarterback said Wednesday that the Green Bay Packers' famed stadium is a "bucket list" place to play. The problem for Sanchez and the Eagles leading up to Sunday's game in Green Bay is that it has not been a fun place for opponents to visit this season. The Packers have averaged 41.5 points per game in their four home games, nearly 20 points better than their average on the road.

Almost two weeks after they put away the pads, the St. Louis Rams picked up their third win of a dismal season. They prevailed in a high-stakes competition with the Miami Dolphins and landed Jeff Fisher for their vacant head coaching job. The team said Friday it was finalizing a deal to hire the veteran coach who sat out the 2011 season after 17 years in Tennessee. His long stint there included a Super Bowl matchup against the Rams in 2000 in which Tennessee fell 1 yard shy of forcing overtime in a 23-16 loss.

THE EAGLES will honor a great player from their past at each home game this season, allowing the player to serve as honorary captain. For Sunday's home opener against the Giants, the inaugural honor goes to linebacker Seth Joyner, a three-time Pro Bowler (twice with the Eagles, in 1991 and 1993). The captain will be involved in both pregame and halftime activities, with highlights from his playing days on the giant screens. Joyner will raise the Eagles flag during the pregame ceremony (approximately, 12:45)

GREEN BAY, Wis. - For Eli Manning and the New York Giants, Lambeau Field has become a familiar launching pad. After beating the Green Bay Packers at home for the second time in four years, they only hope this trip ends the same way - at the Super Bowl. Manning threw for three touchdowns and the Giants shocked the Packers, 37-20, in an NFC divisional playoff game on Sunday. Manning threw for 330 yards, sending the Giants to San Francisco for the NFC championship game next Sunday night.

THE GREEN BAY Packers have raised $67 million the last 6 weeks by selling shares of stock for $250 apiece. When the Packers decided to upgrade Lambeau Field - a $143 million effort to add 6,700 additional seats, high-definition video screens and a new entrance by next year - they resolved not to ask for a single taxpayer dime. Instead, they reverted back to the same strategy that has helped keep the Packers afloat several times in team history - a stock sale. The latest offering wrapped up Wednesday.

More than 24 hours before the start of last night's Eagles-Packers game, a fairly large crowd - at least by local standards - gathered at Lambeau Field to watch the Goodyear Blimp practice its maneuvers. In other cities, this might be construed as poorly planned leisure time, but in Green Bay it was just another act of devotion. Once the game finally began, hours after the first charcoal grill had been torched in the parking lot, Packers fans watched another ship apparently full of hot air that seems to be drifting aimlessly.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - Nick Foles will continue deferring to Chip Kelly when the subject of the Eagles' quarterback competition arises, because that's the second-year quarterback's nature. His most convincing testimony comes before Kelly's eyes. Foles didn't throw seven touchdowns in the Eagles' 27-13 win over the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on Sunday, but Foles did enough to bring the Eagles back to .500 and continued offering evidence that he should be the team's quarterback.

FIRST TIM TEBOW lost on Saturday night, then the New York Giants won on Sunday night. In Philadelphia, there really is no God. The worst winner of the NFC East in memory, the Giants are nonetheless ticketed for the NFC Championship Game Sunday at San Francisco after a 37-20 upset of the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field. That nobody saw it coming goes without saying. The hardest part is figuring out what it means. With that, on to the questions. By the transitive property of sports - which, even though it doesn't work like the transitive property of mathematics, doesn't prevent it from being invoked with alacrity - doesn't this mean that the Eagles could just as easily have found themselves in the NFC Championship Game if they had managed one more win along the way?

After getting no bites from the NFL following his televised workout Tuesday, Terrell Owens might consider the Arena Football League. The Chicago Rush became the first team to offer T.O. a contract: a "standard player agreement," which comes with a salary of $400 per week. "We feel that this is an ideal time to approach the future NFL Hall of Famer," Rush GM and president Gene Nudo said in a statement. "It would be a fantastic honor to add Terrell to our current roster for the 2012 season.

For a moment, assume the worst for Sam Bradford. Picture him at Lambeau Field on Aug. 29, dropping back to pass against the Packers during the Eagles' third preseason game. The third exhibition game is a team's most important preseason game. It's the dress rehearsal for the regular season. It's Bradford's best chance, maybe his only chance before the final score starts to matter, to answer the questions about whether, after tearing his left anterior cruciate ligament twice in a 10-month span, he can make Chip Kelly's offense purr like a Ferrari 458 over 16 games.

Despising the Dallas Cowboys never really goes out of vogue around here. The needle on the hate-o-meter just fluctuates based on how well or poorly the team that Jerry Jones bought is playing. With the Cowboys having already dethroned the Eagles as NFC East champions and set to play in an NFC divisional playoff game in Green Bay on Sunday, this is obviously a time in which the needle is tilting to the far right. Speaking of the right, Gov. Christie, a lifelong lover of the Cowboys despite being a lifelong resident of the less-vegetative northern end of the Garden State, has added a unique twist to the Dallas disdain.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - Reading too much into one 60-minute act of football is always a perilous exercise in the 21st-century NFL. Today's team of destiny could be tomorrow's downgraded discard, and yesterday's rejects always have a shot at redemption the following week. Now that we have that disclaimer out of the way, let's say this about what transpired in the wind and cold at Lambeau Field late Sunday afternoon: The Eagles looked so feeble and inferior against quarterback Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers that it is difficult to imagine them coming back here in January and winning a far more meaningful game.

THERE'S A CHANCE that if you've seen the Green Bay Packers play more than once this season, you've seen them play really well and also really, really poorly. The Packers looked amazing in last Sunday night's 55-14 dismemberment of a bitter rival, the Chicago Bears. But remember that Thursday night game at Seattle, the league's season opener, that ended with the Packers losing, 36-16? Every NFL pundit rushed to his Twitter account to proclaim that the Seahawks were going to repeat as the Super Bowl champs.

CHIP KELLY said facing Aaron Rodgers on Sunday is "going to be a lot of fun. " Fun is kayaking down the Colorado River or skiing Snowbird. Fun is a European river cruise or front-row seats at a Springsteen concert or salmon-fishing in Alaska or driving a Ferrari. Going up against arguably the game's best quarterback on his own turf would seem to be about as much fun as getting a colonoscopy. But if you're a confident 7-2 football team that is eager to see how far it has come and how far it may still have to go, well, then I guess I can see how you might view Sunday's game against the red-hot Rodgers and the Packers at Lambeau Field as fun. The Eagles are coming off perhaps their best defensive performance of the season.

THE ROUT WAS ON and the mind wandered, just as it had the night before in front of the television. Sunday night, it was the Packers. Monday night, it was the Eagles. And now the splendid collision is upon us. Eagles vs. Packers. And with that, beginning next Sunday afternoon at Lambeau Field, the truth will begin to be told. This night was the setup, just as the Packers' bludgeoning of the Bears had been. This night was the time when the Eagles' cornerbacks finally got their interceptions, when their defense was best described with an adjective one degree beyond voracious, and when Mark Sanchez ran the offense proficiently in his first start in a couple of years.

EAGLES defensive coordinator Bill Davis said yesterday he envisions at least "a limited role" for first-round rookie linebacker Marcus Smith in Sunday's opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars. "We're game-planning for certain situations," Davis said. "What they come at us with will dictate what we come back at them with, what personnel groupings we're in, how we use our players, and what the matchups are. " The Eagles labeled Smith a project from the moment they selected him after moving back from 22nd to 26th in the first round of the May draft.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - The tundra wasn't frozen - it doesn't actually freeze anymore since they put heating coils beneath the sod - but it wasn't a toasty day in old Lambeau Field, either. The deep-fried cheese curds were the only warm thing in the building when the Eagles and Packers kicked off on Sunday. This isn't an easy place to play, even against a team missing its starting quarterback and, after one offensive series, missing its backup quarterback, too. That didn't hurt the visitors, but the wind still blew cold and steady off the bay, the 78,000 fans still howled along with it, and the Eagles were aware they hadn't beaten a team with a winning record yet this season.
