Tonight at 8:15 Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, Mass. TV: NBC10 Radio: WYSP-FM (94.1) Line: Patriots by 24 How They Match Up Eagles defense vs. Patriots offense It is scary to even think about, but the Eagles should not feel too bad, because Tom Brady and his new toys at wide receiver have made every opponent - except Indianapolis - look like overmatched amateurs. The only hope for any team facing the Patriots is to apply pressure on Brady and force him into throwing some picks.

Strath Haven fired off 22 points at the start of its Wednesday night matchup against Penn Wood, but it wasn't enough to stave off the host Patriots.

For Germantown Academy this season, the mistakes of youth have been a problem. Fortunately for the Patriots, most of those mistake have been in games that Germantown Academy has won. In The Hill School Tournament in Pottstown over the weekend, one of those youths came through for coach Dave Hoch. Brian Costello, a junior guard, scored only 2 points in the Patriots' 48-45 win over Choate School yesterday afternoon in the fifth-place game, but Hoch credited him with turning the tide.

Germantown Academy had the game plan for stopping Penn Charter's twin towers, but just didn't have the horses to pull it off. The Quakers' duo of 6-foot, 9-inch, 215-pound senior Steve Goodrich and 6-7, 230 junior Shawn Peterson teamed up for 38 points as the Quakers dropped the host Patriots, 72-67, in each team's Inter-Ac opener on Friday. With the victory, the Quakers improved to 13-1 overall, and 1-0 in the league, while the Patriots dropped to 8-5 and 0-1. "I knew we couldn't handle both of those big guys," GA coach Jim Fenerty said.

Bruce Stankavage continues to play in pain, but the senior guard at Central Bucks East also continues to be a significant force in the Patriots' offense. Despite playing with a possible stress fracture in his right foot, Stankavage scored 29 points Saturday. Nonetheless, the Patriots lost to Chester, 77-60, in the championship game of the Chester Kiwanis Tournament. Stankavage also starred for the Pats in their 69-61 opening-round victory over Strath Haven on Friday. In that game, Stankavage, who is 6-foot, 2-inch and a Division I college prospect, scored a game-high 34 points, 15 in the second quarter, as the Pats (2-5)

Penn Wood has made a habit of winning Del-Val League championships, but even head coach Mike Guille had doubts about contending in 1989 after the Patriots lost their first five games. "I didn't think we had a chance," Guille said after the Patriots beat Chichester, 13-8, Saturday afternoon. "Our fourth and fifth losses were close. Our kids could have gone south, but they didn't. It's a credit to them that we've come back. " The Patriots have reeled off four straight wins after losing, 17-16, to Episcopal Academy in their fourth game of the year and 13-6 to The Haverford School in their fifth.

Fresh off its fine showing in Trenton's rugged Eastern States Invitational Tournament over the holidays, Germantown Academy got the new year off to a rollicking start Friday afternoon with a heart-stopping 62-61 victory over the previously undefeated Hun School of Princeton. With the Patriots trailing, 61-60, and the clock showing 3 seconds to play in Germantown's storied and raucous gym, Pats center Mark Nori gathered in a rebound off the offensive glass and was fouled in the act of shooting.

MALCOLM JENKINS said something last week that offered an interesting prism through which to view the Eagles' frenetic offseason. "Look at New England," the safety said. "It's always about the team first. They obviously have one of the best quarterbacks on their team, but when you look at their roster, they move people in and out, plug people in and out, because they have a way that they do things. The Patriot Way. That's how they win. I think that's what Chip is trying to do here.

PATRIOTS COACH Bill Belichick doesn't play favorites. No exceptions. According to a report, he banished cornerback Malcolm Butler from the field the last two weeks for showing up late for the team's first OTA. Butler, you'll remember, was the hero of the Patriots' 28-24 Super Bowl win over the Seahawks last season. The Seahawks had driven 79 yards on seven plays to the Patriots' 1-yard line. With 26 seconds left, Butler intercepted a pass by Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson to seal the victory.

Gov. Christie hasn't negotiated with other countries or shaped foreign policy. But he does claim one resumé detail to distinguish himself on national security ahead of a likely 2016 presidential run: the Patriot Act. Even as Congress scales back the law, Christie has been arguing forcefully for the tools given to law enforcement and intelligence agencies after 9/11 as crucial to prosecuting terrorists. Yet the importance of the Patriot Act in Christie's tenure as a prosecutor is less clear than he asserts.

Nearly 14 years after the 9/11 attacks, this country's mood may have finally shifted from the pervasive fear that birthed the Patriot Act, which blithely ignored privacy laws to root out terrorist plots. That mood swing is reflected in Congress' expected approval of a Patriot Act replacement, the Freedom Act, which would stop the government's bulk collection of private telephone information. Instead, the National Security Agency and FBI would have to request that data from telecommunication companies that must retain such records.

Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul said Monday that he would do "everything possible" to block renewal of the antiterrorism Patriot Act over the government's bulk collection of phone records. Speaking in front of Independence Hall, the Republican presidential candidate conceded that changing the policy or blocking reauthorization was unlikely. "I can delay it. I can force them to debate it so the public at large can know what they're doing," Paul said. "They have the votes inside the Beltway, but we have the votes outside the Beltway.

PHOENIX - New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, whose only two head coaching hires coached in the Super Bowl this year, is an admirer of Eagles coach Chip Kelly. "If I were an Eagle fan, I would be excited," Kraft said Monday at the annual NFL meeting. "He did an outstanding job in college. I know my head coach [Bill Belichick] has great respect for him. He's trying to put his stamp on what's going on there. This is a tough league, so there will be some challenges. But he's an exciting guy to be around.

PATRIOTS OWNER Robert Kraft had preferred seating at Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's speech to Congress at the U.S. House chamber yesterday. Kraft sat in the second row, directly behind Netanyahu's wife, Sara, and to the left of author and Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel. No word on whether Netanyahu tried to pull a "Putin" and steal Kraft's most recent Super Bowl ring. During a 2005 trip to Russia, Kraft showed Putin his hefty jeweled ring from Super Bowl XXXIX, when the Patriots beat the Eagles.

Kendall Grasela remembers shooting in the Germantown Academy gym the summer before her freshman year when one of the seniors from the storied girls' basketball program came up to her and said, "You know they are going to hate you because you are wearing a Patriot uniform. " Grasela, now a junior point guard, did not believe it. She thought herself to be a nice person. But when she stepped onto the court for the first time, she realized the sentiment was true. The Patriots have long been the envy of the Inter-Ac, capturing 25 titles from 1984 to 2012 and sending star players to elite colleges.

Germantown Academy's Tim Guers had a fairly quiet first half in Friday night's Inter-Ac League title showdown against Episcopal Academy, making only two of his nine field-goal attempts. The senior guard turned things around in incredible fashion in the final 16 minutes, netting 27 of his 33 points while sparking the visiting Patriots to a 74-50 blowout win and their third consecutive outright league crown. "You can be a good player and play at GA," longtime Patriots coach Jim Fenerty said.
