CINCINNATI - We're guessing Donovan McNabb might not be the one to get the heat from the fans this time. Early in warmups for yesterday's game, according to Eagles Web site czar Dave Spadaro and radio analyst Mike Quick, Bengals receiver Ocho Cinco, nee Chad Johnson, jumped into the Eagles' pass receiving line. He caught a slant from Donovan McNabb and then raised his face and arms to the heavens, presumably rejoicing in the opportunity to catch a pass thrown by his friend and offseason confidante, as Cinco told reporters in a midweek conference call.

Tony Gonzalez, who has more catches than any tight end in NFL history, announced Tuesday he is returning to the Falcons for the 2013 season. Gonzalez, the Falcons' leading receiver last season, said during the season he was 95 percent sure he would retire after the 2012 season. His productive season made it difficult to stick with the retirement plan. While Gonzalez is staying, Titans left guard Steve Hutchinson has decided to retire after 12 NFL seasons, the last cut short by a knee injury that limited him to 12 games.

All those turnovers. With their five giveaways in yesterday's loss, the Eagles already have 15 turnovers in their first five games, 14 of which have come in their four-game losing skid. Eagles have a league-worst minus-10 turnover ratio. HOW HOT IS ANDY'S SEAT?: After the money the Eagles shelled out in free agency and all of the talk about being all in, owner Jeff Lurie felt very, very good about his team's Super Bowl chances this season. Now the Dream Team is 1-4 and in a death spiral.

TORONTO - John Beck was sacked nine times, and the Washington Redskins were held to 178 total yards in a 23-0 loss to the Bills in Toronto on Sunday. Mike Shanahan, the third-winningest active coach in the league, was blanked for the first time in his 24 seasons as an NFL coach or offensive coordinator, according to STATS L.L.C. "It's a tough one to take," Shanahan said. "It's pretty humbling to take that. " The loss was the third straight for the sliding Redskins (3-4)

Sheldon Brown expects a fine, and if he gets it for his aggressive hit on Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, he will appeal. "I play the game," Brown said last night after the Eagles tied the Cincinnati Bengals, 13-13. "I don't play the game to be dirty. I don't play the game to hurt people. I just play through the whistle, and the league will probably see it that way. " With the game tied with 79 seconds left in overtime and the Eagles having just punted the ball back to the Bengals, Brown ran a corner blitz, and barreled down unblocked on Fitzpatrick.

ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. - The Buffalo Bills will take the win any way they can get it. After a wild back-and-forth fourth quarter, Ryan Fitzpatrick found David Nelson wide open on fourth down for a 6-yard touchdown pass with 14 seconds left to secure a 38-35 victory over the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. "I don't know what happened, but I think they misaligned to be honest," Fitzpatrick said, in noting how wide open Nelson was over the middle. "I was lucky enough to see it. " Chalk it up to luck, pluck and resilience, because the Bills are showing they're improved.

Week 16 was most notable for its upsets, from the screeching halt of Carolina's drive for perfection to the Patriots' bungled handling of the overtime coin toss. Somehow, the Ravens mustered their divisional-rival powers to ground Pittsburgh's passing attack while the Rams knocked the surging Seahawks offense off-stride for the first time since Week 10. And while the Cardinals' ninth consecutive victory wasn't a surprise, the way they humiliated the Packers' offense sure was. Each of these unexpected outcomes yielded disappointing fantasy results for many of the players who had propelled their owners to the championship round.

Former Titans starter and Eagles backup Vince Young can add another line to his travelogue resume: former Bills quarterback. This time, he didn't even make it out of the preseason. After Buffalo acquired Tarvaris Jackson from the Seattle Seahawks to back up starter Ryan Fitzpatrick, the team released Young, the onetime Texas Longhorns standout and 2006 NFL offensive rookie of the year, on Monday. Young didn't seem surprised. He tweeted earlier in the day: "Respect Bills fans.

FLORHAM PARK, N.J. - New York Jets cornerback Antonio Cromartie faced the Eagles last season when he was with Arizona. But when he watched the game tape of this season's Eagles team, he noticed a slower offense. "With Nick Foles and those guys, it seemed like the tempo was a lot quicker," Cromartie said. "To me, I think it slowed down a little more with Sam Bradford because he's still trying to grasp the offense. Nick Foles understood the offense so it was able to move at a faster pace.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - The Eagles' season did not come here to die, after all. "Gritty" was the word Chip Kelly used to describe his team's 24-17 victory over the host New York Jets. There is one rhyming word that might also apply, particularly to the second-half efforts of Kelly's offense, but let's be kind for a few more hours, what with the pope having barely left town and all. Also, the Eagles' defense doesn't deserve the derision. Missing its two touted young inside linebackers, Mychal Kendricks (hamstring)

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 17 of the 2015 season. Watch 'em roll Ryan Fitzpatrick, QB, Jets at Bills. The Jets have a playoff berth at stake, while the Bills have only Rex Ryan's ego on the line. That's never kept opposing teams from trouncing him, though; so look for Fitzpatrick to keep feeding the ball to his consistently productive receivers. Tim Hightower, RB, Saints at Falcons. Hightower has been a late-season gem for the Saints and his fantasy owners, and he's coming off his best game since . . . well . . . ever.

SO MANY mediocre quarterbacks will be starting this week, Roger Goodell ought to change the name of his league to the MFL. Injuries and ineffectiveness have spread throughout the league like a plague of Drew Rosenhauses. Throw in the fact that Ben Roethlisberger, Eli Manning and Drew Brees are on bye, and many fantasy players - especially those in two-quarterback leagues - are in a real bind. Let's take a look at the 28 guys expected to start this week. QB1s The obvious top starters: 1. Tom Brady (vs. Buffalo)

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 6 of the 2015 season. Watch 'em roll Sam Bradford, QB, Eagles vs. Giants. Bradford seems to be getting into a rhythm with Philly's up-tempo offense, passing for 603 yards and 5 TDs over the last two weeks. Next up: The NFL's most generous secondary. Arian Foster, RB, Texans at Jaguars. He's gotten past his groin injury and reclaimed the workhorse role in Houston's backfield. Meanwhile, Alfred Blue is dealing with a turf toe. Antonio Andrews, RB, Titans vs. Dolphins.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - While his play suggested otherwise, Eagles rookie inside linebacker Jordan Hicks admitted to a serious case of butterflies before making his first NFL start. The nervousness didn't last long, as Hicks had a team-high 10 tackles, along with a fumble recovery and an interception, during Sunday's 24-17 win over the New York Jets at MetLife Stadium. "I was definitely nervous before the game," Hicks said. "All of that goes away as soon as the first snap happens and it is time to go. " Hicks' performance was a continuation of his play last week when he had seven tackles in a reserve role during the Eagles' 20-10 loss to the Dallas Cowboys.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Two weeks ago, it looked like the one and only member of the Eagles' 2015 draft class with any shot to make an impact this season was going to be their first-round pick, wide receiver Nelson Agholor. Cornerback Eric Rowe, their second-round pick, struggled in the preseason and opened the season buried deep on the depth chart. His only action in Weeks 1 and 2 came on special teams. That didn't figure to change. Same with their third-round pick, inside linebacker Jordan Hicks, whose chances of getting many defensive snaps behind Mychal Kendricks, Kiko Alonso and DeMeco Ryans seemed somewhere between slim and none.

IN WEEK 1, the Eagles were torched by Julio Jones in a loss to Atlanta. Last week, they escaped having to face injured Dez Bryant, but still lost to Dallas. On Sunday, they get Brandon Marshall. The only thing more disappointing than an 0-3 Eagles start would be if Pope Francis woke up today and decided he wasn't coming to Philadelphia after all. Think of it. All of those cars towed for nothing. Eagles cornerback Nolan Carroll played two seasons in Miami with Marshall, who leads the Jets with 13 catches and 19 targets through two games.

AFC East New England Patriots Last season: 12-4 (won the Super Bowl) Coach: Bill Belichick (175-65 in 16th season at New England; 211-109 overall in 20 seasons). Cornering the market: While "Deflategate" and QB Tom Brady have drawn most of the attention, replacing corners Darrelle Revis and Brandon Browner will be a major challenge. Super Bowl hero Malcom Butler is now one of the main corners. Outlook: The Patriots have won 10 or more games in 12 consecutive years and despite all the offseason turmoil, they should keep that streak intact, while winning a seventh straight AFC East title.
