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.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell was a little busy last week as he prepared to explain to an appeals judge his finger-in-the-wind decision process regarding the suspension and re-suspension of Baltimore running back Ray Rice. Even so, Goodell must have noticed that one of the league's owners, Washington's Daniel Snyder, was suing five Native Americans for the crime of being upset about the "Redskins" team nickname. If he wins the suit, maybe Snyder can take their land and force them to live in a fenced-in section of the FedEx Field parking lot. Not much of a view, but, hey, no income tax. The five activists, perhaps to their own surprise, won a ruling earlier this year from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office that canceled six of the team's trademarks that used the word "Redskins," with the ruling board stating it did so because the word was "disparaging to Native Americans.

IF THE NFL needs more research on concussions it should talk with former Eagles quarterback Kevin Kolb, who was diagnosed with four during his 6-year career. In a first-person account for Monday Morning Quarterback, Kolb - who retired last year after four seasons with the Birds and two with the Cardinals - wrote that he suffers daily from his brain injuries. "The ringing is like someone shooting a shotgun right next to my ear, every second of every day," he wrote. "It doesn't go away.

THE NFL FINED Eagles left tackle Jason Peters $10,000 for "unnecessarily striking an opponent in the head area after the play was over" in the game against the Redskins, the league confirmed yesterday. Washington's Chris Baker, whom Peters went after in the wake of the defensive lineman's blindside hit on Nick Foles, was fined $8,268 for grabbing an opponent's facemask. Baker was not fined for his questionable hit on Foles, a hotly debated topic in Philadelphia all week. Troy Vincent, the NFL's executive vice president of football operations, told the Washington Post on Tuesday that the hit was legal.

The NFL's determination that Washington defensive lineman Chris Baker's hit on Nick Foles was legal left the Eagles confused on Wednesday. "I'm still under the impression you can't blindside a player, whether it's a quarterback or not a quarterback going back toward your own sideline," coach Chip Kelly said. "So I'll touch base with the league officials before we play again. That's news to me that that's a legal hit. " Former Eagles defensive back Troy Vincent, the NFL's vice president of football operations, explained on his Twitter account that a quarterback cannot be blocked at the head/neck area after change of possession, and that the contact on Sunday was not with the head or neck.

REDSKINS cornerback DeAngelo Hall knew who to call Sunday night, just hours after he had suffered a season-ending Achilles' injury against the Eagles: Lakers star Kobe Bryant. "He was probably the most notable guy that I remember having an Achilles' injury and coming back," said Hall, who suffered a torn left Achilles' in the third quarter. "He said the same thing our trainers have. Just be patient with it. It's going to feel like you can push. It's going to feel like you can do some things.

THE EAGLES are 3-0 after rallying from yet another double-digit deficit. Around the league, Chip Kelly is being hailed as the league's newest genius. But don't hold your breath waiting for Cary Williams to call him that. The Eagles are 3-0 despite giving up 511 yards and 27 first downs to the Redskins yesterday. They are 3-0 despite the fact that Washington controlled the football for all but 7 minutes of the first half, scored on every one of its first-half possessions and converted seven of nine third-down opportunities before halftime.

Nick Foles sprawled on the turf with ribs aching after a hit he never saw coming. Jason Peters picked a fight with the instigator, and defending his quarterback turned into a multiplayer melee on the Washington Redskins sideline that resulted in two ejections. The game was tied in the fourth quarter, and the commotion became widespread. No one knew who would have the ball, or who would play quarterback for the Eagles, or whether the star left tackle would stay in the game. During a Sunday afternoon that already featured the drama of DeSean Jackson's return to Philadelphia, the intensity of the Eagles' 37-34 win over Washington was unlike any other game that some Eagles had ever experienced.

ASHBURN, Va. - For better or worse, Kirk Cousins is the Washington Redskins quarterback for the near future. Whether that is better or worse for the Eagles Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field depends on who you ask. It became the hottest debate among Washington football fans last week when Robert Griffin III exited in the first quarter of a game against Jacksonville on Sunday with a dislocated left ankle. Cousins made an auspicious entrance by throwing his first pass for a 20-yard touchdown.

Neshaminy won both meetings last year, by 31-14 in the regular season and 35-14 in the district semifinals. Senior tailback Juawine Sowell has made a big splash for Abington this season.
