Recent history: The Redskins defeated the Eagles, 31-6, on Nov. 18 in Landover, Md. The Redskins lead the series, 80-70-5. QUARTERBACK Eagles: In his first start against the Redskins 5 weeks ago, Nick Foles struggled against the blitz, completing just 8 of 18 passes and throwing two interceptions when they sent five or more rushers. Since then, he has done a good job of moving and sliding in the pocket and has thrown just one pick. Redskins: Robert Griffin III is nursing a knee injury that kept him out of last week's game.

The Redskins and Vikings have one of the higher-scoring rivalries in the NFL these days. In their last three regular-season meetings, the two teams have scored a total of 181 points. The average final score was 34-26, Redskins. So what happened yesterday? What caused 17-10, Redskins? "We've had some high-scoring games against them in the past," Minnesota quarterback Wade Wilson said. "But when you get to the championship game, the defenses always rise to the occasion.

THE EAGLES aren't getting any love from ESPN. First, senior NFL writer John Clayton ranked the Birds' Michael Vick at No. 25 among the league's 32 starting quarterbacks, behind the likes of the Bucs' Josh Freeman (23) and the Bengals' Andy Dalton (19). For Vick, it was quite a drop from last season when Clayton had him at No. 9. As if that wasn't bad enough, ESPN - in conjunction with Pro Football Focus - recently predicted the score of all 267 regular-season games this season.

Neshaminy's Anthony Paino was named the outstanding wrestler and Pennsbury's Chuck Connor remained unbeaten in winning the 112-pound crown in last night's championship round of the PIAA District 1 North tournament at Quakertown. Paino, who had been battling problems with his left shoulder for the better part of three seasons, shook off another painful episode to get a technical fall over Upper Merion's Larry Mazzerle in 4 minutes, 22 seconds for the 103- pound title.

What distractions? Most teams would panic if they had to deal with what Downingtown West went through in the last couple of days. Standout forward Chris Harmon suffered an ankle injury during Friday's practice. The senior was unable to play in yesterday's much-anticipated boys' soccer game at Neshaminy. If losing Harmon weren't bad enough, the Whippets almost didn't make it to the game. The team bus driver got lost twice en route to Langhorne, and what should have been a 55-minute drive took them an hour and 35 minutes.

Neshaminy field hockey coach Lisa Pennington knew there was no way her team was going to lose yesterday's big Suburban One League National Conference game with Pennsbury. Even when it went into overtime, Pennington had faith. Although the Redskins' record in overtime games is not good this season - three losses and a tie - they had a couple of things going for them - playing at home for the first time this year, and junior Marlaine Schneider. Schneider backhanded a standing ball into the goal cage 1 minute, 25 seconds into the overtime period as Neshaminy defeated Pennsbury, 1-0. "Chelsea [Rota]

The Washington Redskins left open the door for waived quarterback Mark Rypien to return at a $2 million salary cut. But Rypien slammed the door shut late last night. The Redskins, in turn, today are expected to sign free-agent quarterback John Friesz, from the San Diego Chargers. "Let the Redskins go with Friesz," said Rypien's agent, Ken Staninger. "I think that's what they wanted to do all along. I talked to Mark tonight, and we wish the Redskins the best of luck. " Rypien, who was scheduled to make $3 million in 1994, requested, and was given, his release Wednesday after general manager Charley Casserly asked him to play for $1 million with no incentives.

Two things Neshaminy likes to do best are throw the football and roll out and throw the football. Saturday, at William Tennent, Neshaminy encountered something hazardous to aerial attacks - a brisk, swirling wind that made passing treacherous. Just ask Redskins quarterback David Welsh. He threw four interceptions during a 20-8 loss to the Panthers. "Sure, there was wind, but we didn't throw well," said Redskins coach John Chaump. "We made some poor choices on receivers.

Senior tailback Rob Latronica rushed for 178 yards and senior quarterback James Franklin threw for 178 as Neshaminy shut out host Truman, 28-0, Saturday in Suburban One National play. "We haven't changed our plan from the beginning of the year," said Redskins' coach John Chaump. "We like that balance between the run and pass. " Latronica, a strong 5-foot-6, 160-pounder, needed 184 yards in the game to reach the 1,000-yard mark for the season. That goal looked easily within his reach after he picked up 136 yards on 13 carries in the first half.

Growing up in Washington, we worshiped the football team, partly because baseball's Senators had gone and moved to Texas, of all places, but mostly because D.C. is more of a football sort of place. The sport, like politics, is nasty, expensive, and quick to adopt rules that defy logic. We warbled "Hail to the Redskins," donned burgundy-and-gold shirts (unflattering to all), the whole business, even though my father was a civil rights attorney who defended Native Americans in the 1972 takeover of the Bureau of Indian Affairs building to demand improved treaties and living standards.

A decision has been reached. Will it be challenged? Time will tell. After months of contentious debate, the Neshaminy school board overwhelmingly approved a policy Thursday that would limit, but not eliminate, the ability of students to edit out the word Redskin, Neshaminy High School's mascot, from the high school newspaper. The policy, as approved by the board, will allow students to remove Redskin - a word they have deemed derogatory - from news articles, but not editorials or opinion columns.

The student editors overseeing Neshaminy High School's newspaper have routine summer plans. Gillian McGoldrick will work at Rita's Water Ice. Reed Hennessy wants to volunteer at the National Constitution Center. Jackson Haines is looking for a job to fill idle hours. "Teenager stuff," Haines, 17, said with a smile last week. Unlike the last eight months. Since October, the editors of the Playwickian have been battling with administrators about whether they can ban the word Redskin , the school mascot, from the paper.

WELL, IT COULD have been worse. There is no three-game death march this year like there was last season when NFL schedule-maker Howard Katz saw fit to send the Eagles on the road for 3 successive weeks in late September and early October. And they won't have to wait 12 weeks for their bye like they did last year. That will come in Week 7, just as the autumn leaves are at full blush, and just after they've won four of their first six games, according to my imperfect calculations. But then it gets tricky.

There was no introductory news conference for DeSean Jackson in Washington. At 12:55 p.m. Wednesday, about 12 hours after they agreed to a three-year contract, the Redskins posted a photo of Jackson on Twitter in team garb as he officially signed his deal. The Redskins have taken a similarly muted approach after acquiring other free agents this offseason. But getting one of the NFL's most dynamic playmakers, a castoff from a division rival, would seem to warrant a trumpet call.

A LOT of times in free agency, it is considered a grand slam if you can improve your team while simultaneously hurting one of your top rivals. With the unceremonious release of Pro Bowl receiver DeSean Jackson last Friday, the Eagles had to suspect that one of their chief challengers in the NFC East would take the opportunity to swing for the fences against them. That's exactly what Washington did yesterday when it inked the mercurial Jackson, and that's a reference to both his blinding speed and unpredictable personality, to a 3-year contract worth $24 million, with $16 million guaranteed.

DESEAN JACKSON called getting released by the Eagles "a challenging situation to be in," in a radio interview yesterday, and he added, "easily, it can make or break somebody. But I feel I'm very tough, and I'm at that point in my career where it's not going to do nothing but bring out the better in me. " Jackson didn't discuss what he thought led to the team's extraordinary action, either while talking to Washington's ESPN 980 or earlier, in a media conference call in which only Washington-area reporters were allowed to ask questions.

Less than five days after the Eagles released DeSean Jackson, the Pro Bowl wide receiver signed a three-year contact with the Redskins, according to an NFL source. "It's going down!! Burgundy and Gold," Jackson posted on Twitter. Jackson's three-year contract for $24 million comes with $16 million fully guaranteed, a source confirmed. It is a good deal under tough circumstances. The agreement was reached late Tuesday night after a day of negotiations and days of speculation about where Jackson would land after the Eagles cut their top receiver.

DeSean Jackson took his act down I-95 to Washington, where the former Eagles wide receiver met with the Redskins on Monday. Jackson flew from his hometown of Los Angeles to Dulles International Airport, where he was met by camera crews from both Washington and Philadelphia. He was scheduled to have dinner with Redskins coaches, including new coach Jay Gruden, during the evening and meet with team officials and undergo a physical Tuesday. Jackson, 27, has been linked to several teams since the Eagles released him on Friday with little explanation, but the Redskins are the only team to schedule a visit.
