HOW DO YOU play with a lead in the second half, then run down the clock, when you built that lead by playing at the most furious pace the NFL has ever seen? This is something the Eagles will have to figure out. It helped make a 33-7 laugher of an opener into a 33-27 game, in which the Redskins were rooting around for an onside-kick recovery that would have given them a chance to steal the win, with 1 minute, 14 seconds left Monday night. "Part of what we do, and our success, is that we get into a rhythm," coach Chip Kelly said.

LANDOVER, Md. - After watching a full game of Chip Kelly football, even if it includes just one supercharged half, fans may need to recover and relax with something a bit more slow and soothing - like jai alai, for instance. The Eagles opened the ADHD era with a 33-27 win over the Redskins that required a good bit of holding on at the end. In fact, the Eagles had the good fortune to get two chances to catch the onside kick that could have turned the game around entirely. They got the bounce the second time and put away a game that should have been put away after a mind-boggling first half.

Here are some observations and ruminations about Monday night's Eagles-Redskins game: LANDOVER, Md. - Robert Griffin III was obviously rusty in his first game since injuring his knee in January. The Redskins star quarterback never got into a rhythm early Monday night against the Eagles but seemed to find his game in the late going. Griffin was also not much of a threat to run and entered halftime with just two carries for 2 yards. Credit goes to the Eagles defense, which presented Griffin with different looks and put pressure on the quarterback.

LANDOVER, Md. - One game does not eradicate skepticism, but there will be far less doubt about how Chip Kelly will translate to the NFL after the Eagles' convincing 33-27 victory over the Washington Redskins in the season opener Monday night at FedEx Field. The victory was more than a simple adjustment to the record, which is now 1-0. It was an endorsement of Kelly's philosophy of frenetic football, in which the play clock is an optional accessory and an optimum performance appears closer to what occurs in a video game than a real NFL contest.

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.

A LOT OF EAGLES fans are already preparing for Monday's game against the Redskins. An American Indian tribe is preparing too, but in a much different way. The Oneida Indian Nation said yesterday that it will run spots on Washington-area radio stations before the game, imploring the Redskins to change their nickname. The tribe said it finds the name offensive. The ad begins with a reference to the racial slur used by Eagles wide receiver Riley Cooper toward a security guard at a concert this summer.

SO, IT'S OFFICIAL. St. Robert Griffin III will walk across the waters of the Potomac Monday night and start against the Eagles 8 months after surgery to repair a torn ACL in his right knee. And while the Philadelphia media will pepper Eagles players and coaches this week with nonstop questions about the challenges of defending St. Robert, a much bigger dilemma for the boys in midnight green could be trying to stop the guy who shares the backfield with RG3. Alfred Morris came out of sixth-round nowhere last year to rush for more yards than any NFL back not named Adrian Peterson.

It's 50/50. Sometimes, Neshaminy forward Megan Schafer gets the better of her goalkeeper, McKenna Mullin, in soccer practice. On other days, it's Mullin who shines. Together, the seniors are just two reasons the Redskins are excitedly optimistic about this season. "I really feel like they make each other better," said coach Rachel Clemens, who has been at the Redskins' helm since Schafer and Mullin were freshmen. "McKenna isn't going to give up many easy shots. She challenges Meg to have better shot location, to strike it harder than she is used to. "I think it has been a beneficial thing for both of them.

The opposing wills of a headstrong coach and an equally headstrong franchise player faced off again Monday, with Washington Redskins coach Mike Shanahan rebuffing Robert Griffin III's latest lobbying effort to play in the preseason. Shanahan also said he has no private deal with Griffin about playing in Week 1 of the regular season, as implied by the quarterback. As far as Griffin's statements about neither liking nor fully understanding Shanahan's practice plan for the QB, the coach reiterated that it's not his job to do everything to Griffin's liking.

RICHMOND, Va. - "Is 38 the new 28?" London Fletcher tweeted in May on the occasion of his 38th birthday. For most professional athletes, the answer to that question is a definitive no. Thirty-eight is young for an accountant or plumber or hedge-fund manager. But it's ancient for a professional jock. By the time they reach 38, their skills have eroded, their bodies have betrayed them and their careers are either over or on life-support. But Fletcher isn't most athletes.
