Santana Moss was a tender 8 years old when he learned his first and most profound lesson of football. Moss, playing the sport for the first time, was prepared to catch a pass from his uncle when he was slammed across the face by somebody's forearm, a blow that resulted in the loss of a tooth. "Ever since then," said the explosive wide receiver out of the University of Miami, "I try not to let anybody get their hands on me. " What's noteworthy is how often, in major collegiate competition, Moss succeeded in his quest to be untouched.

THE MISTAKE is traced to Brian Dawkins' escape; surely, Dawkins' play at safety was sorely missed after the Eagles failed to re-sign him after the 2008 season. What often is forgotten is that the mistake was compounded after the 2010 season, when the Eagles let Quintin Mikell leave, too. They were confident that they had at least two options from the 2010 draft: second-rounder Nate Allen, whom they expected to recover from a late-season knee injury; and seventh-round revelation Kurt Coleman, who, as a backup, appeared to be a sterling find.

Each week, Daily News football writer Paul Domowitch will tell you the things he will be keeping his eyes on during that week's game: 1. The pressure on Campbell. The Redskins' offensive line has been ravaged by injuries and hasn't been able to protect quarterback Jason Campbell very well. They are 30th in the league in sacks per pass play. The Eagles sacked Campbell six times in the first meeting last month. They need a repeat performance to make life a little easier for their depleted back seven.

The Washington Redskins proved that the two-game winning streak they brought into their game against Dallas was not just a byproduct of playing bad teams. After their 26-24 victory over the Cowboys at Texas Stadium yesterday, they can be considered as legitimate contenders, and that means the NFC East - already the best division in the NFL - is now a four-way race. Jason Campbell threw two touchdown passes and Clinton Portis ran for 121 yards as the Redskins (3-1) knocked the Cowboys (3-1)

It's easy to focus on talkative rookie coach Jim Zorn, whose West Coast offense surprisingly comes with a heavy dose of smashmouth. Or on Clinton Portis, who had a 175-yard game and is running better than ever. Or on Santana Moss, whose three spin moves essentially produced two touchdowns. Or on the fact that two straight games have hinged on long field-goal attempts in the final seconds. But how about some props for the Washington Redskins' defense? With several big plays, the Redskins shut down the visiting Cleveland Browns yesterday, 14-11, throttling a team that looked unstoppable against the world champion Giants only a week earlier.

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.

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.

RUSHING OFFENSE: LeSean McCoy returned to the lineup after missing four games with a concussion, but the highlight of the Eagles' day on the ground was Dion Lewis' 17-yard fourth-quarter touchdown run. McCoy was a much bigger factor as a receiver, catching nine passes for 77 yards, than he was as a runner (45 yards on 13 carries)

Back in the 1990s, when many of today's fantasy diehards wore diapers and stats were tallied with a calculator, the key to successful drafting was simple: Land Barry Sanders or Emmitt Smith, and a postseason berth was yours. Then, for several years, the Marshall Plan was in effect. Hand Marshall Faulk the ball, and it was all downhill from there. Later, Priest Holmes, LaDainian Tomlinson, Shaun Alexander and Adrian Peterson took their turns wearing the crown jewels of the fantasy realm.

TAMPA, Fla. - With the game on the line Sunday, Robert Griffin III moved the Washington Redskins right down the field and to the second victory of his young career - a 24-22 win over the Buccaneers that snapped a two-game losing streak. The win came when Billy Cundiff redeemed himself for a horrible day kicking, making a 41-yard field goal with three seconds remaining. Cundiff missed three earlier attempts, including a 31-yarder that wound have put the Redskins (2-2) up by two scores early in the fourth quarter.

Grossman threw a 20-yard scoring pass to Santana Moss, Darrel Young scored on a 6-yard run after one of the Redskins' three interceptions of Eli Manning, and Graham Gano kicked three field goals as Washington (5-9)
