EAGLES (+1) over Bills "Uncle!!!" . . . Remember when you were arm wrestling back in the day and cried that to admit defeat? Kinda like tapping out in a UFC mixed martial arts match. Not ashamed to admit that Kelly 's Heroes have given me agita all season long, and predicting the outcome of their games is about as easy as finding a ticket for Bruce Springsteen 's upcoming tour. They come off two of the ugliest games in NFL history (losing by a combined total of 90-31)

Some numbers that mattered in the Eagles' stunning 35-28 upset of the Patriots: 128.4 Sam Bradford's third-down passer rating against the Patriots. Third down has been a black hole for Bradford and the Eagles this season. The Eagles quarterback was ranked 29th in the league in third-down passing (57.6 rating) and the Eagles were 27th in third-down efficiency (34.4 percent) going into the New England game. Bradford had completed just 48.9 percent of his third-down passes, had averaged a league-worst 4.01 yards per attempt and had converted just 26.1 percent of his third-down passes into first downs.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The scoreboard decides genius and makes its final judgment over years and decades, not days and weeks. It always looks a lot smarter to win than to lose. Time has already made a call on New England coach Bill Belichick, who has built a football edifice that, even if it fell right now, would still be ranked among the most enduring in NFL history. Chip Kelly? Well, the jury is sequestered and has asked for reams of additional evidence. Get back to us on that one. But if a football analyst from any era took a hard look at the Sunday game between the Patriots and the Eagles, it would be really difficult to determine which guy is the genius and which is considered several answers short of a good SAT score.

FOXBOROUGH, Mass. - The interview with Bill Davis was pushed into a corner, outside the main section of the visitors' locker room at Gillette Stadium, to get Davis away from the joyous, blaring music. This had not been much of a problem for the Eagles' defensive coordinator in recent weeks. During the three-game losing streak that ended with Sunday's shock-the-world, 35-28 Eagles victory over the defending Super Bowl champion New England Patriots, the only music that accompanied Davis' interviews ran through the minds of his questioners.

When the Eagles have the ball: The Eagles are expected to get Sam Bradford back at quarterback after he missed the last two games because of a concussion and a separated shoulder. The coaches liked how Bradford played before the injury, and the offense needs him to pick up where he left off to help invigorate a unit that has scored fewer than 20 points in each of the last three games. Bradford will have all of his receivers and tight ends available since Zach Ertz was cleared to return after missing the Lions game with a concussion.

The New England Patriots have lost only six home games in the last six seasons, so there aren't many quarterbacks in the NFL who know what it's like to leave Gillette Stadium with a victory. Eagles quarterback Mark Sanchez is one of them. Sanchez lost four regular-season games with the New York Jets in Foxborough, Mass., but he was the winning quarterback against the Patriots in the second round of the playoffs on Jan. 16, 2011. Sanchez is expected to be the Eagles' No. 2 quarterback Sunday when the Patriots host the Eagles.

PATRIOTS (-9.5) over Eagles Really loved the Daily News back-page headline "DICTATORCHIP. " Whoever came up with it needs a raise, and I'll donate my winnings when New England crushes our hometown heroes, or, should we say, hometown zeros. The only reason we're not going totally crazy is that the line looks suspiciously low. In my top-secret power ratings, the Patriots are 12.5 points better than the Birds. Add the traditional three points for home field, and the line should be 15.5.

Sam Bradford has five games remaining to salvage the Eagles season - and maybe even his time in Philadelphia - and it's likely to begin on Sunday against the New England Patriots. After missing the last two games because of a concussion and a separated shoulder in his nonthrowing arm, Bradford sounded optimistic Wednesday that he will return to the starting lineup this weekend. "I hope so," Bradford said. "I think, barring any setbacks, I expect to. But at the end of the day, that's going to be up to the coaching and training staff, if they feel that I'm ready to go out there and play at a high level.

MALCOLM Jenkins' first-ever appearance in an NFL regular-season game was short and not so sweet. The 14th overall selection in the 2009 draft, he played only one snap in the New Orleans Saints' season opener against the Detroit Lions. It came early in the third quarter of what would end up being a 45-27 Saints rout. The guy on the other side of the line from him for that one play was none other than Calvin Johnson. "One-on-one, no help," Jenkins recalled. "Sixty-seven yards later, he stepped out on the 2-yard line.

Fittingly, since Central Bucks East had edged Quakertown by only a point eight days earlier, the rematch Saturday afternoon was likewise up for grabs until the end. This time, Quakertown, keyed by a defense that intercepted three passes in the final 7 minutes, escaped with a taut Round 2 victory. The 12th-seeded Panthers nipped the fifth-seeded and host Patriots, 7-6, in a District 1 Class AAAA first-round playoff at cold and windy First Lt. Colby Umbrell Field. "It's huge, especially after what happened the first time," Quakertown senior quarterback Tom Garlick said.
