TAMING WITTEN: Jason Witten had pretty much been able to do whatever he wanted against the Eagles. Until last night. Witten only caught two passes for 14 yards in the first half and finished the game with four catches for 28 yards and no touchdowns. WILL THE REAL RUN DEFENSE PLEASE STAND UP: Against the Rams last week, Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray gained 253 yards, including a 91-yard touchdown. Last night, he had 74 yards in the first half. And, although he had a couple of carries in the second half, he finished with those same 74 yards.

Joe Flacco's return home for the first time in a regular season NFL game turned into an afternoon of frustration for the Baltimore Ravens quarterback. The fifth-year NFL veteran out of Audubon High in Camden County completed just 22 of 42 passes for 232 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Sunday's 24-23 loss to the Eagles in their home opener at Lincoln Financial Field. A week ago, he earned a 128.4 passer rating after throwing for 299 yards and two touchdowns in a 44-13 win over Cincinnati.

LANDOVER, Md. - Mike Shanahan could take it no longer. He had stuck with quarterback Rex Grossman through some uneven performances during the Washington Redskins' first four games, but after three quarters of futility Sunday against the Eagles, the coach finally relented to the FedEx Field crowd's chants of: "We want Beck. " John Beck took over at quarterback for the Skins in the beginning of the fourth quarter, with Washington trailing by 20-6, and he sparked an offense that had been lethargic.

THEY REMEMBER the year they watched the phenomenon unfold. Bradley Fletcher was a junior at Iowa. He intercepted two passes that season and began to pop on scouts' radar, a big step in his college career that helped him go in the third round 2 years later. Brandon Boykin was a senior at Fayette County in Fayetteville, Ga., a high school star preparing to head to UGA. That was 2007. From different sections of the country, they, with the rest of the football world, turned their eyes to New England and witnessed history.

Aubree Brown's head is always on a swivel, as she looks for where the ball should go next. Brown, Archbishop Wood's senior captain, exudes a pivotal confidence for the Vikings (26-4), who will face Blackhawk in the PIAA Class AAA state final Saturday at 6 p.m. at the Giant Center in Hershey. Strong with the ball in her hands, the 6-foot guard/forward is a terrific passer. She almost always finds the open teammate. Brown does so with such frequency that she makes difficult passes look routine.

VILLANOVA'S John Robertson didn't play in spring practice, after undergoing labrum surgery in early January on his left (non-throwing) shoulder. Turns out it could have been the best thing that ever happened to him. All he was allowed to do was throw in seven-on-seven drills. There was no running, for someone who'd gained 1,021 yards on the ground as a redshirt freshman and 1,405 last season, when it seemed as if all of his receivers went down with injuries and he pretty much became the offense.

Marcus Smith was a 6-foot-3, 210-pound high school quarterback when he attended Florida's football camp. He intrigued Gators defensive coordinator Charlie Strong - but not because of his arm. "I knew he wasn't a quarterback," said Strong, the current Texas coach who coached Smith at Louisville, "but I knew he was something. " That something was a Louisville pass rusher, and eventually an Eagles first-round pick. This is the second straight year that the Eagles drafted a converted quarterback: 2013 first-round pick Lane Johnson also started his college career as a quarterback before finishing as an offensive tackle.

LARRY FOLES, Nick Foles' dad, has ventured to two of the five games his son has started this season for the Eagles. Larry left his home in Austin, Texas, to watch Nick play in Tampa and in Oakland. Astute readers will note that Nick led the Birds to victory and won NFC Offensive Player of the Week awards both times. So, Eagles fans might want to start a campaign to get Larry to Lincoln Financial Field this Sunday, when the home team is going to face quite a challenge in the stout defense of the 7-4 Arizona Cardinals.

IT HAS BEEN just three games, but Peyton Manning is on his way to one of the all-time seasons. He's probably not going to continue his pace of 64 touchdown passes, but he who doubts No. 18 does so at his own peril. Plus, he's playing the Eagles on Sunday. Manning has won three of four starts against the Eagles with eight touchdowns, three interceptions and 1,031 yards. Not too bad, really. Nine times in history have NFL quarterbacks thrown for 40 touchdown passes. Four of those players did so in seasons they also faced the Eagles.

This is a post by Paul Domowitch on the Daily News' Eagletarian blog. SURVEYING THE wreckage of yet another Eagles loss while wondering whether Rich Kotite is going to send a box of cigars to the newest member of the Seven Straight Losses Club:   Todd vs. Juan The before-and-after numbers get more gruesome every week. In the five games since Andy Reid saw fit to relieve defensive coordinator Juan Castillo of his command and replace him with Todd Bowles, the Eagles' pass defense has gone to hell in a very big way. The Panthers' Cam Newton became the latest quarterback to put up a 120-plus passer rating against Bowles' discombobulated defense, completing 18 of 28 passes for 306 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.

This may be hard to believe, but the best thing that could happen to Michael Vick and the Eagles offense Sunday just might be for the Falcons to blitz the hell out of them. Vick has had his problems this season, particularly with turnovers. He already has eight interceptions and five lost fumbles in six games. He's ranked a dismal 27th in the NFL in passing, 25th in completion percentage and 24th in touchdown percentage. The Eagles are 22nd in the league in sacks allowed per pass play, and Vick has been regularly accused of contributing to his offensive line's protection problems by hanging on to the ball too long.
