Terrance West, the running back who set Football Championship Subdivision records while leading Towson to the school's first title game appearance, confirmed Tuesday morning that he will skip his senior year and enter the NFL draft. “I'm ready for the challenge,” West said. “I'll adapt to anything that's thrown at me. I'm just prepared. I had a good thing with Towson. They prepared me very well, and it should be fun.” West, a Baltimore native and Northwestern graduate, said he made up his mind after meeting with Tigers coach Rob Ambrose on Sunday -- one day after Towson lost, 35-7, to three-time reigning national champion North Dakota State at Toyota Stadium in Frisco, Texas.

Along the way to compiling a 14-0 record, extending a winning streak to 23 consecutive game and earning the No. 1 seed in the NCAA Football Championship Subdivision tournament, North Dakota State has tangled with, and quieted, a number of talented running backs. But Bison coach Craig Bohl conceded that Towson junior Terrance West - he of the FCS single-season record of 2,410 rushing yards and 41 total touchdowns - is unlike any tailback his defense has faced. “He's at the top of the list, and his numbers bear that out,” Bohl said Friday afternoon during a conference call.

The Vikings won five of their past six (the loss was at home to the Falcons) after starting 1-3. Difference-makers: The Eagles are a better team when they give the ball to running back Brian Westbrook (right). Diminutive DeSean Jackson provides big-play potential for Donovan McNabb in the passing game.

PHILADELPHIA - You have to ask yourself: Doesn't this qualify as consumer fraud? Even with their self-imposed limitations, even with their prudent safety-first approach, even with their determination to get no one of importance hurt, was this really the best product the Eagles could offer? Frankly, they should be ashamed and embarrassed. Their loyalists, a hardy and staggeringly faithful lot, ought to ask for a refund. In the first game of the new year, the Eagles played like the Eagles of old. Remember 3-13?

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Brian Westbrook entered the NFL as a small player from a small program. Three years later, the Philadelphia Eagles' 5-foot-8 running back out of Division I-AA Villanova is drawing big praise at the Super Bowl. "He's fast, and he's explosive," Patriots linebacker Willie McGinest said. "It's like playing against Marshall Faulk. If you plan on beating Philly, you try to contain him. I don't think you can ever stop a guy like him, because he does so many different things."

Philadelphia 38, NY Giants 31 East Rutherford, NJ (Sports Network) - The Philadelphia Eagles have found several ways to deal the New York Giants heartbreaking defeats over the years, and they added another one to the list on Sunday. There was "The Fumble" in 1978, and there was Brian Westbrook's punt return in 2003. On Sunday, with these teams tied for the NFC East lead, it was the electric DeSean Jackson, whose 65-yard punt return on the game's final play lifted Philadelphia to a 38-31 victory over New York in one of the most memorable games in the NFL this season.

Posters in the locker room, stricter guidelines on the field, investments in research — all of those are good things. But if the NFL wants to be taken seriously on the issue of treating concussions, it has to do more. Namely, no more Philadelphia-type fiascos. A look back to Sunday: In the second quarter against the Packers, two Eagles suffered concussions in rapid-fire succession. First, quarterback Kevin Kolb was sacked from behind and his head was driven into the turf.

Judging from the actions of coach Wade Phillips, WR Terrell Owens and CB Adam Jones, the Cowboys are either unraveling in Week 6 or playing an inside joke. This much seems clear: After losing to the Redskins and nearly the Bengals, they aren't the same team that won their first three games decisively. Phillips was so incensed by a reporter's suggestion that Dallas "stunk" against Cincinnati that he stalked off in mid-news conference. Owens went from complaining one week about his number of chances per game to crying in front of the media over the loss of a family member the next.

Mets, Manuel agree on two-year contract baseball Jerry Manuel and the New York Mets agreed yesterday on a two-year contract that includes a club option for 2011. Manuel took over on an interim basis June 17, when New York was 34-35. After the Mets built a 3 1/2 -game lead in the National League East in September, they lost 10 of their final 17 games and were eliminated from postseason contention on the final day of the season for the second straight year. They finished at 89-73. More Mets:: Authorities in the Dominican Republic have issued an arrest warrant for pitcher Ambiorix Burgos on charges stemming from a hit-and-run accident that killed two women.

PHILADELPHIA -- Whether the quarterback is Mark Brunell or Patrick Ramsey, the inability to put up points continues to torment the Washington Redskins. With Ramsey making his first start of the season, the Redskins mustered just 85 yards of total offense in the second half last night, and Donovan McNabb and the Philadelphia Eagles scored 21 unanswered points in that span to forge a 28-6 rout before 67,720 at Lincoln Financial Field. The loss was Washington's third in its past five games, dropped the team to 3-7 and pushed it closer to another year without a ticket to the playoffs.

NFC East DALLAS COWBOYS 2006 record -- 9-7, second place, lost at Seattle in wild-card round. Report date, site -- Tuesday (rookies and veterans); Alamodome, San Antonio. The buzz -- The Cowboys are being talked about as a trendy pick in the NFC, but that's putting a lot of faith in quarterback Tony Romo -- and even more on coach Wade Phillips. In four previous stops (two as a head coach, two as an interim), Phillips went 48-42. Not bad, but he didn't have wide receiver Terrell Owens around to undermine his authority.
