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.

Before the Neshaminy girls' soccer season even began, senior goalkeeper McKenna Mullin had one particular goal she had set for herself. She didn't want to surrender more than two goals in any game during the season. It seemed a bit lofty at the time, she acknowledges, but on Saturday night, in the District 1 Class AAA final at Souderton, Mullin extended her streak of reaching her goal to 21 games, as the Redskins defeated Downingtown East, 2-1. "I thought it was going to be an unattainable goal, but with the solid defense we have - we are just unbelievable back there - it has made it easier for me to keep it out of the net," Mullin said.

IF YOU WATCHED their 31-16 win over the Redskins last week, then you know Tony Romo and the Cowboys' big-and-tall-shop receivers aren't the only people the Eagles need to keep out of the end zone on Sunday. They also need to neutralize the Cowboys' dangerous return man, Dwayne Harris. Eagles fans who haven't managed to purge last season's 4-12 disaster from their memories no doubt remember Harris, who had a 78-yard punt return for a touchdown in the Cowboys' 38-23 Week 10 win at the Linc.
