THROWING A PASS EVERY SIX OUT OF 10 PLAYS

Itpears that the Eagles will finish the season with approximately a 40-60 run-pass ratio, based on what it appears they've done with the ball the past few weeks. One other thing that looks certain is the fact that Brian Westbrook will set a career mark for touches, despite missing a game. He has 287 touches, including returns. That's approaching his high of 322, set last season. In addition, he has lugged 67.7 percent of the carries (216 of 319) and 27.2 percent of the receptions (69 of 254).

5 MORE NUMBERS

3 INTs by Seattle's Lofa Tatupu tied him for the most ever against the Eagles in the regular season with seven others. They include Dave Waymer, Saints; Herb Adderley, Cowboys; Jim Bradshaw, Steelers; Dick Lynch, Giants; Johnny Sample, Steelers; Ray Ramsey, Cardinals; and Wade Cuffy, Giants.

3 Times in 12 games that Brian Westbrook didn't go over 100 rushing yards when he had at least 20 carries. All three of those games have come this season. He went 20-for-85 at Green Bay, 21-for-46 at Minnesota and 21-for-93 yesterday.

7 INTs thrown by A.J. Feeley in his two starts this season. In his 126 starts for the Eagles, including playoffs, McNabb has thrown three picks in a game just four times.

16 Yards per kickoff return allowed by the Eagles.

135 Rushing yards by the Seahawks yesterday were the third most given up by the Birds this season. The Jets ran for 158 and so did the Redskins in the teams' second meeting. Oddly, the Eagles won those two games.

NOT MUCH LUCK THE SECOND TIME AROUND

No doubt the Birds will enter as underdogs this weekend when the Giants come to town, and not only because they're 5-7 and the Giants are 8-4. Four times during the Andy Reid era they have lost the first meeting to New York. They're 1-3 in those rematches.
