AN ARBITRATOR upheld the NFL's salary cap reductions on the Dallas Cowboys and Washington Redskins for this season and next. Stephen Burbank ruled Tuesday in favor of the league and dismissed the grievances by both teams. The Redskins lost $36 million over 2 years. The Cowboys lost $10 million for overloading contracts during the uncapped 2010 season despite league warnings about such maneuvering. The Cowboys and Redskins, who filed their grievances against the league and players' association, said in a joint statement they would "abide by the arbitrator's decision to dismiss.

Denis Mercier sees himself as a modern Don Quixote. "But instead of tilting at windmills," said Mercier, a communications and popular-culture professor at Rowan College of New Jersey, "the target is Jack Kent Cooke!" Mercier, 51, whose colorful office walls display the fruits of his quest for examples of ethnic stereotyping in the media, now finds himself lined up against Cooke and his Washington Redskins football team. After seven prominent American Indians began a campaign to cancel the trademark term Redskins last September, Mercier was recruited to bolster their case by compiling examples of American Indian stereotyping in the media.

The top team in the rankings for the fifth straight year is the Washington Redskins, valued at $1.1 billion. The magazine says that is the first American sports team to clear the billion-dollar mark.

The Eagles released cornerback Brandon Hughes on Saturday, one day after Hughes was officially declared out for Monday's game against the Washington Redskins with a fractured hand. Hughes, in his fourth season with the Eagles, is a vested veteran, so his salary of $630,000 for the season would be guaranteed if he were on the roster for Week 1. It is possible that the team will re-sign Hughes after Monday, when he can rejoin the team and the team would have financial flexibility with him if they want to make a transaction later in the season.

Ralph Cindrich, agent for quarterback Steve Bono, of San Francisco, said yesterday that the Washington Redskins have talked to the 49ers about working out a trade for his client. Bono, the Norristown native who has been stuck with backup duty during his five-year career in San Francisco, has one year remaining on a contract that calls for $1.55 million in 1994. The Redskins are likely to draft either Trent Dilfer or Heath Shuler, both quarterbacks, with their first pick in the draft next month.

The NFL is so unpredictable and yet we still try to predict it, especially at this time of year when the countdown to training camp is so close. It is an impossible exercise in a high-speed collision sport. Just ask the Dallas Cowboys. They might have been good enough to win a second straight division title with Tony Romo last season, but they could barely win a game without him. Romo, after being limited to two complete games by a left collarbone that was fractured twice, is back and the Cowboys are again a popular pick to win the NFC East, the division that is unquestionably the most difficult to predict.

You knew when Buddy Ryan walked off the concrete-like carpet at Veterans Stadium on that chilly January day in 1991 that you were never going to see anyone in charge of the Eagles quite like him again. The only difference of opinion was whether that was a good thing or a bad one. The debates were waged in barrooms and locker rooms. They dominated the newspaper coverage and radio air waves. They continue even today after Ryan died in Kentucky on Tuesday morning at the age of 85. Buddy Ball, the goring brand of defense that brazenly targeted opposing quarterbacks, was the quintessential roller-coaster ride in Philadelphia sports history.

In Chip Kelly's first NFL game, the Eagles scored 33 points and displayed a system and personnel that helped make them an offensive juggernaut. They scored into the 30s seven more times that season. They also reached 30 nine times in 2014, albeit with the help of non-offensive touchdowns. In 15 games this year, it's happened only three times. The regression of the offense has been on display all year, and it was evident in the Eagles' 38-24 loss to the Washington Redskins on Saturday.

It wasn't the cornerbacks' fault. There was plenty with which to take issue, looking at the Eagles' defensive effort in Saturday night's 38-24, playoff-hope-crushing loss to the Washington Redskins, but the main thing many observers worried about going into the game didn't happen. As was feared, Byron Maxwell, the Eagles' $63 million corner, couldn't play with a sprain in his SC joint, where the collarbone connects to the sternum. E.J. Biggers took Maxwell's place in the base defense, with Biggers moving inside in nickel and dime packages and Jaylen Watkins coming in on the outside.

What moment reddened your face first? Which one set you screaming loudest and longest? What did the Eagles do Saturday night to deliver unto you the greatest amount of torment? Was it the sight of Zach Ertz breaking open after a broken coverage by the Washington Redskins' secondary, nothing but a vast strip of green between him and a go-ahead touchdown, and the football sailing beyond his outstretched left hand because of a Sam Bradford overthrow? Was it Riley Cooper's failure to hold on to a deep and perfect Bradford pass early in the third quarter, and Cooper's subsequent tantrum on the sideline?

Just as he was winning back the fans, DeMarco Murray's season of frustration was summed up in one botched pitch. One series after igniting the crowd by scoring his first touchdown since Nov. 8, Murray saw the ball and eventually the NFC East slip through his hands during Saturday's 38-24 loss to the Washington Redskins at Lincoln Financial Field. That clinched the NFC East for the Redskins (8-7), while the Eagles (6-9) will have plenty of time to answer the many offseason questions.

Hope vanished in Philadelphia on Saturday night when DeMarco Murray fumbled a pitch from Sam Bradford and watched the Washington Redskins return the turnover for a touchdown. It was a cruel and fitting way for the Eagles to accept playoff elimination. Two key pieces of Chip Kelly's offseason overhaul took part in a play that permanently swung momentum in a 38-24 loss to the Washington Redskins at Lincoln Financial Field. The loss ended any chance the Eagles had to make the postseason.

The list of indignities and insults suffered by the Philadelphia Eagles this season, and by extension their faithful supporters, is not a brief one. Chip Kelly's strategy for taking the league by storm as both coach and general manager became a tornado that reversed its course and leveled a 10-6 team that appeared to be on the verge of achieving something greater. Free-agent signings were busts. Trades were unproductive. Injuries piled up. Peevish personnel decisions aimed at players who bucked the system failed miserably.

Bennie Logan joined the starting lineup in Week 9 of the 2013 season and has not missed a game since. That streak stretches 38 regular-season games. During the last 30 games, Beau Allen has been Logan's backup. Allen is likely to get his first start in Logan's place on Saturday when the Eagles host the Washington Redskins. Logan has a calf injury that kept him out of practice this week, and there have not yet been indications that he will return in time for Saturday. That means Allen, a 2014 seventh-round pick, would join Fletcher Cox and Cedric Thornton in the starting lineup.

The Eagles' postseason hopes last December were dashed when DeSean Jackson raced past defenders for 126 yards on a Week 16 Saturday night. The Washington Redskins wide receiver plagued the Eagles with a propensity for big plays that he often displayed in Philadelphia – and that the Eagles have had difficulty replacing since his unceremonious March 2014 ouster. One year later, the Eagles host the Washington Redskins under similar circumstances. If the Eagles lose to Washington, they'll be eliminated from postseason contention on a Saturday night in Week 16. How the Eagles defend Jackson will again play a big part in the result.
