Former basketball star Melissa Rotz will receive her doctor of Pharmacy degree and deliver the valedictory speech at the University of the Sciences graduation ceremony on Wednesday night at the Mann Center. Rotz, a graduate of Central Dauphin High School, was the women's basketball player of the year on the 2011 Inquirer all-academic team, chosen from the Philadelphia region's Division II and III schools. A four-year starter on the women's basketball team, Rotz has the distinction of graduating from University of the Sciences with the most individual academic honors ever won by a student-athlete at the institution, earning a dozen such awards over her career while performing as the team's starting point guard, the university said.

TEMPE, Ariz. - Four times this season the Arizona Cardinals had found a way to lose a close game at the end. A play here, a play there, and the outcomes would have been different. Then came Sunday's game against St. Louis, where those failures, in the words of coach Ken Whisenhunt, "pale in comparison" to what the Cardinals had to pull off to escape with a 19-13 overtime victory. Special teams were truly special at the end. First, Calais Campbell blocked what would have been the game-winning field goal at the end of regulation.

UPCOMING: Eagles: Giants, San Francisco, at Buffalo. After two road games, the Eagles come home for what should be a highly charged affair against the rival Giants. Dallas: Washington, Detroit, Bye: Cowboys split opening games and now return home for two. NY Giants: at Eagles, at Arizona, Seattle: LeSean McCoy? Steve Smith? Matt Dodge? Are there enough story lines here? Washington: at Dallas, at St. Louis, Bye. Redskins are 2-0 and riding high. Chants of "We Want Dallas" closed yesterday's win over Arizona.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Patrick Peterson sure delivered a dramatic end to his team's six-game losing streak. The rookie cornerback returned a punt 99 yards for a touchdown in overtime to give the Arizona Cardinals a stunning, 19-13 victory over the St. Louis Rams on Sunday. Peterson fielded the ball at the 1. He evaded and bounced off tacklers over the next 30 yards or so, then outran everyone, striding the last few yards in celebration of his third punt-return TD of the season as Arizona (2-6)

THUMBS UP Browns: Cleveland needed a difference-making wide receiver, and Julio Jones was sitting there for them. But it's hard to fault the Browns for trading away the selection for the six-pick king's ransom the Falcons gave them. They received Atlanta's first- (No. 27), second- (59) and fourth-round (124) picks in this draft, as well as first- and fourth-round picks next year. Then they traded back up from 27 to 21 and still got a good player in defensive tackle Phil Taylor.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Cam Newton began his NFL career on the same field where he ended his collegiate one and was spectacular. His 422 yards passing yesterday are a record for any rookie in his NFL opener. Yet he didn't leave as the winning quarterback. That honor belonged to former Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb, who was 18-for-27 for 309 yards, including touchdown passes of 48 and 70 yards, in his first game for Arizona. As fate would have it, a rookie on the other team made the game-winning play.

NEW ORLEANS - Morris Claiborne went to Louisiana State to play wide receiver. Tyrann Mathieu just wanted a chance to play. Together they form one of the best cornerback tandems in college football. Claiborne has flourished into a Thorpe Award winner and likely top-10 NFL draft pick after moving to the other side of the ball, while the pint-size Mathieu has emerged as one of the game's most dynamic playmakers, winning the Bednarik Award and earning an invitation to the Heisman ceremony.

Stevie Johnson acted out one of the most novel cabarets seen in an NFL end zone in years on Sunday, but he wound up looking like the goat when he helped cost the Buffalo Bills a game against the New York Jets. The wide receiver caught a touchdown pass from Ryan Fitzpatrick late in the first half. Johnson jumped up - and mocked being shot in the thigh, clearly making fun of the Jets' Plaxico Burress , who served 20 months in prison for shooting himself in the leg in a nightclub in 2008 while he was with the Giants.

Jeremy Maclin does not do the diva act we have seen from a long list of No. 1 NFL wide receivers over the years. Maclin, in fact, does not even care if you consider him a No. 1 receiver, which a lot of people did not before this season. Perspective probably best explains Maclin's modest blue-collar approach to life and his brutal profession. He has had to deal with a large dose of difficult reality during his 26 years and that has helped form the man's leathery interior and exterior.

GLENDALE, Ariz. - Jeremy Maclin had the kind of day that should have been good enough. It was a day that was part flash, part courage, all professional. Maclin should have been able to revel in the moment as he described his two touchdown catches. He should have enjoyed a laugh about the sideline collision with a table full of Gatorade jugs that left him showered in electrolytes. Instead, like the rest of the Eagles, he was left with the hushed tones of a losing locker room and a string of might-have-beens.

THE TIGHT ENDS hadn't been a huge part of the Eagles' passing attack in the first 11 games. Brent Celek, Zach Ertz and James Casey had been collectively targeted just 73 times and had 40 receptions for 595 yards and four touchdowns. But they had a pretty good idea that was going to change yesterday against the Arizona Cardinals. "We thought we would be used more this game because of the way they play their defense," Ertz said. "They put a lot of safeties and linebackers on us [in]

The football had left Nick Foles' hand and ended up in Patrick Peterson's grasp, and all of Lincoln Financial Field went silent for a heartbeat - about 69,000 people choking on their collective disbelief. This was late in the fourth quarter of a game the Eagles seemed reluctant to finish off Sunday. They had led the Arizona Cardinals by 17 points, but they led by just three when Foles committed the one mistake he hadn't committed in this enchanted season of his. He finally had thrown an interception, and it was going to cost the Eagles a victory, and in that moment, everyone here knew it. Except it didn't.

DeSean Jackson went two seasons without reaching 1,000 yards, devaluing any argument that Jackson was among the NFL's top receivers. Rejuvenated in his first season under coach Chip Kelly, Jackson needs just 15 yards Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals for his first 1,000-yard season since 2010, and the third in his career. "I think this year some things were able to fall in place for me that I had some big games here and there throughout the season and helped my team win," Jackson said.

TRIPLE A-GAP pressure is pretty much what it sounds like, the space between the guards busier than the Ben Franklin tolls at morning rush hour. Everybody uses it here and there, or at least has it in the playbook. The Arizona Cardinals of former Eagles defensive coordinator Todd Bowles, who visit Lincoln Financial Field Sunday, use it more than most. In fact, the Cards are the blitzingest defense in the NFL, bringing extra pass rushers on 48.9 percent of their defensive snaps this season.
