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.

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.

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.

The Philly Pops plucked the reliably resonant strings of patriotism Sunday night. How could it have been otherwise? Using Independence Hall as a heady backdrop, with an estimated 15,000 listeners stretched across the mall, the Pops were back for their annual sound track to Independence Day festivities. Conductor Michael Krajewski presided over a program of Americana very much like the ones of years past. Yet if something was different this time, that something was us. The political realm has become unrecognizable since our last musical gathering at this birthplace of a great idea for a nation, and it was hard to escape the thought that what kind of America you listened for had at least something to do with the America you see us becoming.

Red, white, and blue hues are always right for the Independence Day soiree. The trendlet This summer, with the Democratic National Convention coming to America's birthplace and all, you may get a little more use out of those patriotic duds, whether it's awash with stars and stripes or elephants and donkeys. Where does it come from? The Flag Act of 1777 declared Old Glory would be a banner of red and white alternating stripes and a field of blue with white stars.

The Roots won't play the free July Fourth concert on the Benjamin Franklin Parkway this year, but the lineup will be decidedly rooted in Philadelphia. The performers may lack the star power of prior years, but most have city ties and aim to create a more patriotic, family-friendly atmosphere, organizers said Friday. Leslie Odom Jr., a star of the Broadway musical  Hamilton  and a native of East Oak Lane, will emcee the featured concert on July 4. Bucks County native Christina Perri will perform, as will Yazz the Greatest, a star of the TV show  Empire ; the Philly Pops; and the rhythm-and-blues band Brotherly Love.

Ryan Brown isn't quite old enough to buy lottery tickets just yet, but the Central Bucks East junior hopes his lucky streak will rub off on somebody. On Tuesday, Brown led all scorers with four goals in the Patriots' 10-8 victory against visiting Hatboro-Horsham in the first round of the District 1 lacrosse playoffs. Brown, who netted a backhanded goal in traffic and had another carom in off his shoulder, was a major contributor in the Patriots' come-from-behind triumph. "Sometimes you just get lucky like that," said Brown, 17, who also received the game ball.

Nicole Tracy put it simply for Madi Michvech as the Central Bucks East softball teammates had a conference with coach Karl Knapp during a timeout on Tuesday afternoon. Michvech was at the plate for the third time during the contest, and walked to the batter's box with the score tied and two outs. "If you hit the ball," Tracy said to Michvech. "I'm scoring. " Michvech did as she was told - she sent one flying into the gap in right center - and Tracy scored from second base, just like she said she would.

ISSUE | U.S. CURRENCY Honor a patriot In addition to abolitionist Harriet Tubman, first lady Eleanor Roosevelt, and civil rights leader the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., there's a long-forgotten American hero whose likeness should be displayed on U.S. currency: Crispus Attucks ("Powerful first lady," Thursday). Attucks, 47, was the first casualty of the Revolutionary War, a participant of his own free will in protest and dissent at the Boston Massacre. Described in documents as African and American Indian, he grew up in Framingham, Mass., was a runaway slave, and sailed as a harpooner on a whaling ship.

"Sarah Schubert, super-fast. " It was that simple for freshman third baseman Erin Bevec when she described how she knew her Great Valley softball teammate was going to make it home to score the winning run. It was the top of the seventh and the Patriots were tied, 3-3, with Downingtown East. There were two outs. Schubert stood on second, having beaten out a grounder for an infield single and then stealing a base. Bevec was at the plate, already 2 for 3 on the afternoon. With two outs, Schubert was running anyway.
