The latest episode of the Washington Redskins drama could be called "Let's Make a Deal. " When last we checked on ongoing soap opera in the nation's capital, coach Mike Shanahan had shut down gold-plated superstar quarterback Robert Griffin III (a.k.a. RG3) for the season and replaced him with tin-plated no-nickname signal-caller Kirk Cousins. On Friday, Shanahan revealed his master plan to a D.C. radio station: He's going to use the three games left in the season to showcase Cousins, turn him into trade gold, and transform the 2012 fourth-round pick into a 2014 first-rounder.

EAGLES PUNTER Donnie Jones was named NFC Special Teams Player of the Week for his game against the Redskins. He set a team record with a 50.7 net yard average on six punts. Four of Jones' punts were downed inside the 20. His final punt came with 3 minutes, 37 seconds left and the Eagles ahead, 24-16. He booted a 70-yarder that rolled out of bounds at the Redskins' 4-yard line. It was the longest punt by an Eagle since Randall Cunningham had an 80-yarder at Dallas in October 1994.

AFTER A WEEKEND in which Eagles cornerback Bradley Fletcher and linebacker Mychal Kendricks were inactive against the Redskins, both players returned to the practice field yesterday at the NovaCare Complex. Fletcher, who missed two games with a pectoral injury, expects to play Dec. 1, when the Eagles return from their bye week against the Arizona Cardinals. Kendricks, who suffered a knee injury against Green Bay on Nov. 10, told reporters he also will play against the Cardinals.

BILL DAVIS is an accentuate-the-positives guy, and right now, the biggest positive about his defense is the fact that since that 52-point, 35-first down, 472-yard debacle in Denver in late September, it has held seven straight opponents to 21 or fewer points. Yes, the Eagles still are giving up a lot of yards, including 427 to the Redskins in yesterday's 24-16 win. Yes, they're near the bottom of the league in sacks per pass play. And yes, it got a little hairy there in the fourth quarter when the Redskins scored two touchdowns and very nearly sent the game into overtime before Robert Griffin III made like the Bad Brett Favre and threw a careless, up-for-grabs pass into the end zone that Brandon Boykin intercepted.

THERE IS never an absence of drama with LeSean McCoy. Whether it is stealing a Redskins fan's banner before the game or breaking Redskins defenders' ankles during the game, excitement seems to follow the fifth-year running back. He added another accolade to his list yesterday afternoon as he became the first player in the NFL to surpass the 1,000-yard rushing mark. But McCoy didn't care about holding the title as the league's most proficient rusher. He says he did not know that he had eclipsed the millennium mark until after it happened.

Robert Griffin III fell backward; threw sideways to avoid the up-reaching arms of Fletcher Cox as he did; and, not surprisingly, a ball he intended to throw away didn't quite make it the necessary 35 yards. Quite a shock. "It's something I shouldn't do, but we'll get better from it," Griffin said after the game, after Brandon Boykin had gathered in the fluttering floater to seal the Eagles' 24-16 win. "It's a somber moment right now for us with the Redskins. " If the Redskins are going to learn from the mistakes they have made this season, the payoff will have to be somewhere down the road, because the 2013 portion of their competitive lives is over.

ASHBURN, Va. - The planets aligned just right for the Washington Redskins on that March day in 2012. In need of a franchise quarterback, they had engaged the St. Louis Rams in trade talks for the second overall pick in that year's draft. The Rams, with Sam Bradford, did not think they needed a quarterback upgrade and happily agreed to a deal that gave them Washington's sixth overall selection, plus two extra first-round picks and a second-round pick. A little more than a month later, the Redskins smiled broadly when they selected Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III. Those smiles grew bigger still when the kid with the fast feet, sculpted body, strong arm, and the coolest of nicknames - RG3 - led Washington to its first NFC East title since 1999.

There's one thing the Neshaminy girls' soccer team hasn't had to get too familiar with this season: trailing. With a high offensive output all year - they have scored 103 goals - the Redskins have found themselves chasing an opponent to try to find the equalizer only twice. The first came in an early Suburban One National game against rival Pennsbury. More recently, Neshaminy fell behind in a grueling District 1 Class AAA quarterfinal against Spring-Ford. The second instance is noteworthy, because the Redskins (24-0)

Two months ago, Najee Goode had just been released on Disappointment Monday. It's typically the day when players that had just survived final cuts on the Saturday following the final preseason game get released when teams scoop up discards from the waiver wire. Goode had made the Buccaneers' 53-man roster a year after he spent his rookie season mostly on the sidelines. But he and another player were cut when Tampa signed a defensive tackle, and as happenstance would have it, former Eagles wide receiver Russell Shepherd.

The ball was on the ground, the game was on the line, and members of the Neshaminy coaching staff were yelling, "Fight! Fight!" It was late in the first half of the District 1 Class AAAA quarterfinal game between the host Redskins and Spring-Ford on Friday night. After a Neshaminy touchdown tied the score with 2 minutes, 45 seconds left in the second quarter, Spring-Ford fumbled the ensuing kickoff, resulting in a crucial scrum for possession in front of the Neshaminy sideline. Neshaminy senior defensive back Devon Brown came up with the ball on a play that the Redskins said was a turning point in their 56-27 win. Neshaminy's opportunistic defense forced six turnovers and scored two touchdowns, while Redskins senior running back D'Andre Pollard rushed for 181 yards and four touchdowns.
