EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. - There is Philadelphia cold, and there is Minnesota cold. What's the difference? Permit Sharrif Floyd, the George Washington High graduate and a rookie defensive tackle for the Minnesota Vikings, to explain: "Philadelphia-type weather, Baltimore weather, you get snow but it's still going to be 40 degrees," Floyd said earlier this week at the Vikings training complex in suburban Minneapolis. "Here? There can be no snow on the ground but it's still negative-13 [degrees]

Joe Webb doesn't rank up there with Tampa Bay's Joe Jurevicius in Eagles infamy, but the name brings back painful memories for the Birds. Now a Vikings wide receiver, the former backup has been getting a lot of press this week for his role in a 2010 Eagles loss as the Birds prepare for Sunday's game in Minnesota. Three years ago, the Eagles were 10-4, fresh off an emotional comeback victory over the New York Giants, and two wins from securing a free pass into the second round of the playoffs, along with home-field advantage.

HERSHEY, Pa. - Archbishop Wood coach Steve Devlin acknowledged that his halftime talk, with the Vikings struggling mightily to gain rushing yardage, was "a little louder than usual. " Whatever Devlin said, the players - in particular, the offensive line - responded. Wood netted 184 yards rushing and three touchdowns after the break and downed Bishop McDevitt of Harrisburg, 22-10, Friday night at Hersheypark Stadium to win the PIAA Class AAA state football championship. Junior tailback Jarrett McClenton benefited from the up-front turnaround.

JOE WEBB hasn't thrown a pass in a regular-season NFL game since 2011, Eagles fans might be relieved to know. The Minnesota Vikings, who host the Birds on Sunday, employ Webb strictly as a wide receiver these days, and not all that frequently - he has five catches for 33 yards this season. Three years ago, Webb and the Vikings taught the Eagles a painful lesson about taking things for granted, about keeping a sharp emotional edge. You probably remember the setup: The Eagles and Vikings were supposed to play Sunday night, Dec. 26 at Lincoln Financial Field.

Eagles quarterback Nick Foles is on the cover of Sports Illustrated this week. Foles is the 19th Eagles player to appear on the magazine's cover. The last one was Nnamdi Asomugha in 2011. "Great honor and a testament to the team and what we've been doing," Foles said Wednesday in the locker room. Foles said his mother would keep the magazine for her grandchildren, although Foles is not one to get impressed by the attention. "I don't worry about Nick from any aspect like that," coach Chip Kelly said. "He's a team guy and understands what our focus is - on the Vikings - and I know Nick's focus is on the Vikings.

And just like that, the Great Josh Freeman Sweepstakes are over, it seems. ESPN reported late Sunday night that the exiled QB has found sanctuary with . . . the Minnesota Vikings. Freeman was taken 17th overall by Tampa Bay in the 2009 draft and is the franchise's leader in career TD passes, but lately things had gone sour between the two. He was released by the Buccaneers on Thursday after the team first tried to trade the demoted starter but were unable to find a taker (and since they say they contacted every other NFL team, that would include the Eagles)

It has been a terrific start to the football season for Perkiomen Valley, with its two victories gained by a combined 70 points. Spring-Ford struggled out of the gate, falling to District 11's Whitehall by 16 points and then rebounding with a romp over Southern. In what is a key early Pioneer Athletic Conference matchup, the Vikings (2-0 overall, 1-0 league) and Rams (1-1, 0-0) will meet at 7 p.m. Friday in Royersford. It must be noted that three Spring-Ford seniors - speedy tailback Jarred Jones, wide receiver Gary Hopkins, and linebacker Jake Leahy - did not suit up for the 37-21 loss to Whitehall.

TOMS RIVER, N.J. - Eastern High's baseball team captured the first state title in school history on Sunday, but after the Vikings celebrated, they performed their usual postgame routine with light sprints in the outfield.
