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. The Redskins, getting other individual titles from Mike Brown (125 pounds)

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.

REDSKINS (+1) over Packers You know how much we love Mr. Discount Double Check ( Aaron Rodgers ), but this game is gonna be all about Mr. You Like That ( Kirk Cousins ). Washington will be giving away thousands of "You Like That" rally towels, and if any of you are gonna be at the game, save me one. We also have made fun of the NFC "Least" all year long, but this team from D.C. is doing some really superb stuff . . . especially Cousins. Since Week 7, he leads the league in completion percentage (72.4)

Hope vanished in Philadelphia on Saturday night when DeMarco Murray fumbled a pitch from Sam Bradford and watched the Washington Redskins return the turnover for a touchdown. It was a cruel and fitting way for the Eagles to accept playoff elimination. Two key pieces of Chip Kelly's offseason overhaul took part in a play that permanently swung momentum in a 38-24 loss to the Washington Redskins at Lincoln Financial Field. The loss ended any chance the Eagles had to make the postseason.

As a rookie in St. Louis in 2010, Sam Bradford entered the final two weeks of the season with near identical circumstances to those he now encounters with the Eagles. The Rams were 6-8 and needed to win their final two games to clinch a division title. Bradford led them to to a Week 16 win over San Francisco – Dec. 26, no less – to set up a winner-take-all Week 17 game against Seattle. The Rams lost that season finale. Bradford played one of the worst games of his career. He never played in a late-season, elimination-type game again.

When the Eagles have the ball When the Eagles and Redskins met in Week 4, Sam Bradford threw for 270 yards and three touchdowns - and Bradford is playing better now than he was then. That should be an encouraging sign for the Eagles, who will have the opportunity to move the ball against Washington. The Redskins allow 240.2 passing yards per game, but the 7.7 yards per attempt is one of the worst averages in the league. Opposing quarterbacks have thrown for 26 touchdowns and only nine interceptions against Washington, plus 11 passes of 40-plus yards.

The list of indignities and insults suffered by the Philadelphia Eagles this season, and by extension their faithful supporters, is not a brief one. Chip Kelly's strategy for taking the league by storm as both coach and general manager became a tornado that reversed its course and leveled a 10-6 team that appeared to be on the verge of achieving something greater. Free-agent signings were busts. Trades were unproductive. Injuries piled up. Peevish personnel decisions aimed at players who bucked the system failed miserably.

Eagles defensive lineman Bennie Logan was not at practice on Wednesday because of a calf injury, and his availability for Saturday's game against the Washington Redskins appears in doubt. Coach Chip Kelly disputed a report that the team is considering shutting Logan down for the season. He said Logan is "day-to-day. " If Logan is out, Beau Allen is expected to start at nose tackle. Defensive end Cedric Thornton could also play that spot. "I think Beau's done a really nice job," Kelly said.

ERIC ROWE said he felt "normal" Wednesday, the best news Eagles fans have gotten as their team faces a do-or-die game Saturday against NFC East rival Washington. Rowe, the rookie corner who has shown steady progress since previous starter Nolan Carroll went down with a broken fibula on Thanksgiving, was cleared by an independent neurologist Wednesday morning, then returned to NovaCare, where he was a full practice participant. The other starting corner, Byron Maxwell, did not practice Wednesday and is a longshot to play after suffering an SC joint sprain, where his collarbone attaches to his sternum, in last Sunday night's loss to Arizona.

The Eagles' postseason hopes last December were dashed when DeSean Jackson raced past defenders for 126 yards on a Week 16 Saturday night. The Washington Redskins wide receiver plagued the Eagles with a propensity for big plays that he often displayed in Philadelphia – and that the Eagles have had difficulty replacing since his unceremonious March 2014 ouster. One year later, the Eagles host the Washington Redskins under similar circumstances. If the Eagles lose to Washington, they'll be eliminated from postseason contention on a Saturday night in Week 16. How the Eagles defend Jackson will again play a big part in the result.

THE EAGLES' defense is trending so terribly, that league-leading snap count seems to have taken a huge toll on a group that was pretty decent the first half of the season. Now the Birds are going to play without Bennie Logan and probably without Byron Maxwell, against a potent team looking to clinch the NFC East. Washington winning the division would be perfect because when the season started, that was the one team I was confident had no shot. The Redskins still haven't beaten a team with a winning record.
