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.

IF EAGLES fans had been polled on New Year's Eve 2012, the day Andy Reid was fired in the wake of a dismal 4-12 season, and asked how they felt about a combined 19 or 20 victories over the two seasons that followed, it's safe to say that win total would've been pretty well received. Chip Kelly finished third in the Sportsperson of the Year voting at this time a year ago, when the Eagles were on the verge of a six-win turnaround and an NFC East title in the coach's first NFL season.

Nick Foles was 14-4 under Chip Kelly and 1-5 under Andy Reid as the Eagles' starting quarterback, but the numbers that may be most important when evaluating him this offseason are 10 and 34. Foles has missed 10 out of a possible 34 starts to injury in his first three NFL seasons. That number could have been higher. Foles fractured a bone in his right hand in the second-to-last game of his rookie year, but he would have missed more time if the season hadn't ended - three weeks total, according to Reid at the time.

When you've been given a starting secondary with below-average talent, when the last two drafts have produced only one regular out of nine selections, when the offense forces you to be on the field longer than any other defense in the NFL, you should be graded on a curve. But Bill Davis should not get a pass for the Eagles' December meltdown, particularly over the last two games when Bradley Fletcher was torched and it seemed the defensive coordinator was the only one to not realize that a change needed to be made.

The Eagles gained nearly 500 yards of total offense yet lost to a 3-11 team. Here are the biggest mistakes that added up to a loss: 13 penalties for 102 yards , including six that resulted in Redskins first downs. Cody Parkey missed two field goals in the third quarter. Mark Sanchez fumbled on the game's first possession, leading to a Redskins field goal. Sanchez was intercepted with 1 minute, 36 seconds left in the fourth quarter, leading to Washington's game-winning field goal with five seconds remaining.

THE EAGLES HAVE seen both sides of the spectrum regarding Robert Griffin III. Two seasons ago, during the quarterback's dynamite rookie season, his Redskins beat the Eagles twice, RGIII in the process tossing six touchdowns to one interception and, in the teams' first meeting, scrambling for 84 yards. Last year the Eagles returned the favor by sweeping Washington. The 2011 Heisman Trophy winner threw four touchdowns to three interceptions but completed only 56 percent of his passes over the two meetings.

LANDOVER, Md. - The Eagles need a starting quarterback. It won't be Mark Sanchez. That realization came long before the Eagles' playoff-dashing loss to the Redskins on Saturday. But it was hammered home when Sanchez, given the opportunity to lead his team on a game-winning drive, threw another interception. It was his 13th turnover in a little more than 71/2 games. That's about par for his course. Sanchez had 98 turnovers in 62 games in his previous life as a New York Jets quarterback.

When the Eagles run   The Eagles' rushing offense has gone through a two-week spell averaging 3.1 yards per carry. One of their worst rushing games of the season came in the first meeting against Washington, when the Eagles rushed for only 54 yards. The offensive line was in shambles that afternoon and is improved now. But the Eagles must play better than they have in recent weeks, and they also must play with a lead and accumulate more plays. The Eagles have averaged 21.5 carries during the last two games after averaging 38 carries in the previous three.  LeSean McCoy averaged 4 yards per carry Sunday and has rushed for only four touchdowns this season.

Trent Cole underwent surgery on his fractured left hand and will miss the game Saturday against the Washington Redskins, coach Chip Kelly said Wednesday. Cole had a plate inserted into his hand. His status for the Dec. 28 regular-season finale against the New York Giants remains undetermined. Brandon Graham will start in Cole's place at outside linebacker. Graham, a former first-round pick, has been a reserve for Cole and Connor Barwin throughout the season. Graham has 34 tackles and has matched a career high with 51/2 sacks this season while playing 39 percent of the defensive snaps.

REMEMBER Chris Baker? Jason Peters just barely does. The Eagles' left tackle was asked yesterday about his Sept. 21 ejection from this season's previous Eagles-Redskins game, avenging Baker's blindside block that leveled quarterback Nick Foles. "Hadn't even thought about it," Peters said yesterday, as the Birds prepared for Saturday's NFC East rematch in Landover, Md. "We're going down there to win . . . Point blank. Whatever we've got to do to win, that's what we're going down to do. " Peters said that since Baker is a nose tackle, they probably won't encounter one another that much.
