One week after starting at safety, Earl Wolff was inactive for the Eagles' win over the Carolina Panthers. Safety Chris Prosinski, who signed last week, played in Wolff's place. Wolff was not on the injury report entering the game, so he was believed to be a healthy scratch. Coach Chip Kelly has offered only lukewarm endorsements this season when asked about Wolff, who could not beat Nate Allen for a starting job during the summer. With Allen injured last week, Wolff struggled in a win over the Houston Texans.

The Eagles modeled their 3-4 defense on the great Steelers units from the 1990s and 2000s, and while they aren't quite in that category, the unit has finally started getting pass-rush pressure like an odd-man front should. The 3-4 is designed to feature the linebackers, and the Eagles have been excellent all season, but especially so in the first half against the Panthers. Connor Barwin notched three sacks (he added a half-sack in the third quarter). Trent Cole picked up his fifth sack before the break.

It was not the expected response from a coach whose team had just been eliminated from the state tournament. But Jim Zeldenrust could be forgiven for not knowing the protocol. His Plumstead Christian boys' soccer team had never been eliminated from the tournament before. "I feel like we can finally celebrate," Zeldenrust said Tuesday night after the Panthers' dream season ended with a 1-0 loss to Moravian Academy in a PIAA Class A semifinal at Souderton. "Every game, we've just been, 'Next game, next game.' We can finally sit back and appreciate it. " The Panthers, who reached the state tournament for the first time, stood toe-to-toe with a much larger Moravian squad, but Jeff Brown slipped one in with 33 minutes, 58 seconds remaining in regulation, and the Panthers (19-3)

THE PICK After watching some of yesterday's NFL action, I'm starting to think that maybe Cam Newton throws five touchdown passes to Jason Avant tonight, runs for another 200 yards and the Panthers roll to victory. But I guess ridiculous results elsewhere (Really, Steelers? You were my best bet this week. Thanks a bunch.) won't really have anything to do with what happens on the field tonight, and I just don't see the Panthers winning without a ton of Mark Sanchez turnovers. Carolina came into the weekend with the league's 26th-ranked run defense.

Defenseman Michael Del Zotto was an unwanted free agent most of the summer, and he finally signed a one-year deal with the Flyers when Kimmo Timonen was sidelined with career-threatening blood clots. It's beginning to look like the best $1.3 million the Flyers have spent in a long time. After a shaky start to the season, Del Zotto has steadied himself, and he continued his strong all-around play Thursday night, helping the Flyers dominate Florida, 4-1, at the Wells Fargo Center.

SUNRISE, Fla. - After sitting out four games, No. 1 goalie Steve Mason was sharp in his return Saturday night. The Flyers weren't. Roberto Luongo made 36 saves and led Florida to a 2-1 win over the Flyers at the BB&T Center. Vinny Lecavalier, who missed the previous seven games with an ankle injury, scored with 7.4 seconds left, denying Luongo his 68th career shutout. "You try to find positives in kind of a negative situation," said Mason, now 0-4-1. "I was happy, for the most part, with the way my game went, but when the other goalie at the other end pretty much plays a perfect game, it's tough to come out on the winning side.

TAMPA, Fla. - When Shayne Gostisbehere took his seat aboard the Flyers' chartered flight bound for Florida yesterday afternoon, marking the launch of his first NHL road trip, it was just another milestone on a journey that began in Montreal in the 1940s. His grandfather, Denis Brodeur, grew up in Montreal but migrated to the land of opportunity in Florida at age 11 in 1955. Brodeur's love for the Canadiens, ingrained in all Montrealers, never left him. In 1955, the NHL was beyond an afterthought in South Florida.

DONOVAN MCNABB has company. Like the former Eagles quarterback, Panthers wide receiver Kelvin Benjamin admitted on Sunday that he didn't know a game could end in a tie. That explains the quizzical look he had when players started walking onto the field to shake hands with the scoreboard reading, Panthers 37, Bengals 37. "I was like, what? I was confused," Benjamin told the Charlotte Observer. "They had to explain what was going on. In a way, it still kind of felt like a loss.

Collingswood field hockey goalie Becca Hall panicked as she ran to take her place on the field. She couldn't find her lucky jersey. "I told her change was good," Panthers captain Rachel Galante said. For Collingswood, change was great. The Panthers broke the undefeated streak of visiting West Deptford by pulling out a late 1-0 win in an intense Colonial Liberty matchup Wednesday afternoon at Knights Field. "It's awesome because last year we were in the same position as them, being undefeated," said Galante, a senior midfielder.

Collingswood football coach Jack McConnell might have lost track of the punts and penalties and peculiar plays that marked his team's game against Paulsboro. But he knew one statistic for sure. "We always talk about gut checks, and there were 1,000 of them," McConnell said after Collingswood's 16-14 victory over Paulsboro in a Colonial Conference interdivision tug-of-war Saturday. It was that kind of a game. It was a rugged, ragged struggle in which the turning point was a shotgun snap that sailed over the Paulsboro quarterback and out of the end zone for a safety that gave Collingswood a 2-0 lead in the third quarter.
