Each week, Daily Newsfootball writer Paul Domowitch will tell you the things he will be keeping his eyes on during that week's game. Here is how things panned out yesterday: 1. San Diego's redwoods: The Chargers have far and away the biggest wide-receiving corps in the league. Overall, the Chargers caught 20 passes for 231 yards and two touchdowns, but their biggest men, Vincent Jackson and Malcolm Floyd - both 6-5 - combined to catch just four passes with no TDs. 2. Protecting McNabb: The Eagles gave up two sacks.

  Line: Jets by 21/2. The skinny: The Ravens are a hot choice to go far this year. They have bulked up their offense by bringing in receivers Anquan Boldin and T.J. Houshmandzadeh, joining versatile running back Ray Rice, dependable wideout Derrick Mason, and healthy-at-last tight end Todd Heap. Their defense always is formidable. Some observers would say the Jets are doing everything the right way, adding stars such as LaDainian Tomlinson, Jason Taylor, Santonio Holmes, and Antonio Cromartie to their lineup.

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. San Diego's redwoods: The Chargers have far and away the biggest wide-receiving corps in the league. Their top three wideouts all are at least 6-2 and 220. Two - Vincent Jackson and Malcolm Floyd - are 6-5. The Eagles' undersized secondary doesn't match up well against them. Philip Rivers is going to be throwing a lot of balls up for grabs for them to make plays on. 2. Protecting McNabb: The Eagles already have given up 21 sacks, which is one more than they allowed all of last season.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Plaxico Burress had the breakout game the New York Jets have been waiting for. The veteran wide receiver caught three touchdown passes, including the go-ahead score that was set up by another interception by Darrelle Revis, and the Jets stormed back in the second half to defeat the San Diego Chargers, 27-21, on Sunday. Leading by 21-17, the Chargers appeared to be driving for a possible game-sealing score when Philip Rivers threw to Vincent Jackson and the ball tipped off the receiver's hands and right to Revis, who returned the interception 64 yards to the Chargers 19. After a few runs by Shonn Greene and a defensive holding penalty - the Chargers' 11th penalty in the game - Mark Sanchez found Burress on a slant for a 3-yard touchdown to give the Jets (4-3)

Here is a partial transcript from Thursday's fantasy football chat with columnist John Gonzalez on Philly.com: Comment from Frank: What should I do with Vincent Jackson? Is he going to play this year? Should I hold on to him? Gonzo: Who knows? The Chargers are trying to figure out the same thing. I love Vincent Jackson. He has big-time talent. But he's not going to do you any good if he doesn't get on the field. If you can unload him at a reasonable price, I'd make the move.

Offseason player movement is the name of the game in today's NFL. Each year, more than 20 offensive-skill position players of note swap jerseys via trade or free agency. What's rare is the free agent who improves his fantasy stock in the year after leaving his previous team. In 2011, only Darren Sproles, Willis McGahee, and Reggie Bush measurably improved their fortunes after changing teams. Matt Hasselbeck and Sidney Rice inched up their respective rankings, but neither approached previous fantasy highs.

It looks like an NFC East title and two convincing wins over the Eagles are enough to keep coach Wade Phillips in Dallas. ESPN, citing a "high-ranking team source," reported that owner Jerry Jones has decided that Phillips will return next season despite a 34-3 loss to Minnesota Sunday in the second round of the NFC playoffs. The Cowboys have an option on Phillips for next season. Meanwhile, Cowboys players said Jones and Phillips stood before them yesterday and gave them some encouraging words to take into the offseason.

The Pittsburgh Steelers made official what has seemed evident for weeks: coach Bill Cowher is no longer negotiating an extension to a contract that runs through 2007. The team announced yesterday that it has ceased talks with Cowher on signing an extension so he can focus on coaching the returning Super Bowl champions. The team, which has had just two coaches in 38 seasons, has long had a policy of not negotiating contracts during a season, but wants to renew talks with Cowher once the season ends.

San Diego's Marcus McNeill ended a long holdout on Saturday when he signed his one-year contract tender. However, he must sit out the next three games because he and wide receiver Vincent Jackson were placed on the roster exempt list by general manager A.J. Smith on Aug. 20. Neither McNeill nor his agent responded to requests for comment. With his pay severely slashed, there's a possibility McNeill decided to come in believing that a long-term deal could be worked out. When McNeill hadn't signed his $3,168,000 tender as a restricted free agent by June 15, the Chargers were entitled to reduce the tender to 110 percent of his 2009 salary, or $630,000.

Keenan Allen, Chargers: Allen's 71 catches were the seventh-most ever by a rookie wide receiver. He slipped to the third round coming out of Cal because of a knee injury. He's not sneaking up on anyone anymore. Antonio Brown, Steelers: Second in the league in catches (110) and yards (1,499). Look for him to improve on eight touchdowns and crack the top-five receivers heading into 2015. Dez Bryant, Cowboys: Since he had 12 TDs in 2012 and 13 in 2013, he's going to get 14 in 2014, right?

NEARLY A MONTH after their controversial decision to release DeSean Jackson, the Eagles finally got around to addressing why they got rid of the three-time Pro Bowl wide receiver. Head coach Chip Kelly, general manager Howie Roseman and owner Jeff Lurie all took turns kind of, sort of, answering the why'd-you-dump-DeSean question yesterday at the team's 18th annual playground build at Prince Hall Elementary School in North Philadelphia. In a major upset, Lurie, who is a very nice man but usually is about as quotable as my sneakers, actually shed the most light on the reason for Jackson's departure.

Pity the drama queen The NFL told the Pittsburgh Steelers' James Harrison and other players this week that they had to stop launching themselves into the air and hitting players in the head with their helmets, just to make sure no one gets killed on the field. Harrison's response was to act like a 14-year-old drama queen by threatening to go home for good, as if his absence would grind pro football to a halt and make the league change its mind. The seventh-year player was so distraught over a $75,000 fine levied against him and the league's crackdown that he said he was considering retirement and was excused from practice on Wednesday.

San Diego Chargers holdout wide receiver Vincent Jackson can play in Week 5 if he is traded by next Wednesday, the NFL and the players' union decided Thursday. The agreement helps clear the way for the Pro Bowler to be traded, provided the Chargers can agree to terms with another team. The agreement essentially rolls what could have been a six-game suspension into four games. Jackson is serving a three-game NFL suspension for violating the league's substance abuse policy. He pleaded guilty in February to his second DUI since 2006.
