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.

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.

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)

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.

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.

I've been pretty good about not wringing my hands endlessly over the picks lately, and I'm 7-3, straight up and against the spread, with the Eagles this year. But this is a tough one. The Eagles haven't won three games in a row under Chip Kelly. I have to keep reminding myself that we are in Year 1 of a rebuilding process here, that as fun as it has been to watch Nick Foles grow and see the defense come together, the overall talent level isn't that good. The Eagles are not going to finish 11-5 and blaze a trail to the Super Bowl.

THE EAGLES' offense has experienced a bit of a metamorphosis in the last couple of weeks. For much of the year, Chip Kelly has primarily used "11" personnel - formations featuring one running back, one tight end and three wide receivers. They haven't always lined up in the same place. But in the first eight games, 441 of their 542 offensive plays (81.4 percent) have featured "11" personnel. The last 2 weeks, though, Kelly has used more "12" personnel - one back, two tight ends and two wideouts - than he has all season.

The Eagles might need to count on reserves to play key roles in Sunday's game against the Washington Redskins with their injury report more crowded than usual this week. Tackle Jason Peters, linebacker Mychal Kendricks, and safety Earl Wolff left last Sunday's 27-13 win over the Green Bay Packers. All three missed Tuesday's practice. Wolff will almost certainly miss the Washington game with a knee injury, and whether Kendricks and Peters will be on the field at the Linc on Sunday is still unknown.

One by one, the members of the Neshaminy girls' soccer team - its seniors in particular - have been crossing things off their to-do list. First, it was beat Downingtown West. Check. Then, go a second straight season undefeated in Suburban One National play. Next, it was win a District 1 Class AAA title. The last item loomed large on the list: make it to Hershey for the state championship game. After a dominating 3-0 win over Central Bucks East on Tuesday night at William Tennent, the Redskins can cross that off, as well.
