PHILADELPHIA -- In the specialized world of professional football, there never has been a player like Keith Byars of the Philadelphia Eagles.Byars is an offensive weapon without a clearly defined base of operation. He is a running back and a tight end and a slot back rolled into one. He even throws touchdown passes.Beyond Philadelphia, Byars' abilities have gone almost unnoticed. Officially labeled as a running back, Byars wasn't voted to the National Football Conference Pro Bowl team by his peers.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- By now, he knows how to read the signs.Vaughn Hebron is in his fourth summer of odds-beating. He went through the rookie-making-a-name-for-yourself phase and the prove-you're-not-a-fluke phase and the impress-a-new-coaching-staff phase.This year, he is in the come-back-from-an-injury phase. Hebron entered training camp thinking that his name had been dropped from the coaches' mental list of players with real chances to be on the final roster. As the camp wore on and he read the signs, he became certain.

PHILADELPHIA -- They have labored under a reputation as a bad big-game team, but last night the Philadelphia Eagles ran out from under that cloud and past the Dallas Cowboys for a convincing 31-7 victory at Veterans Stadium.The Eagles won the battle of unbeatens in typical style, too -- with big-play defense and the improvisational ability of quarterback Randall Cunningham.A frenzied crowd of 66,572, along with a national TV audience, watched as the Eagles pushed their record to 4-0 for the first time since 1981.

The Washington Redskins, stung by the loss of four players in the first month of free agency, started a comeback yesterday. They signed safety Danny Copeland and had two other players -- wide receiver Tim McGee and tight end/running back Keith Byars -- in for a visit at Redskin Park.Copeland, 27, got a three-year, $3 million contract. The $1 million average is $150,000 more than the $850,000-a-year contract the team's other starting safety, Brad Edwards, signed the day before the free-agency signing period started March 1.The Redskins wanted to keep Copeland at Edwards' level, but after losing Jumpy Geathers, Gary Clark, Fred Stokes and Martin Mayhew, the Redskins evidently recognized that the skyrocketing salaries for free agents have created a new market.

PHILADELPHIA -- A second straight Philadelphia Eagles season will fizzle out against the Washington Redskins Sunday at Veterans Stadium.There will be no fourth consecutive postseason appearance for the Birds.There will not even be another weekend of scoreboard scrutinizing and wishful wild-card thinking for the Eagles. Self-satisfaction, respect, a 10-6 regular-season repeat and incentive clauses will be the only things for the Eagles to play for against Washington.The New Orleans Saints saw to that with their 27-0 Superdome victory over the Los Angeles Raiders Monday night.

METAIRIE, La. -- Like an old refrain from a tedious song Herschel Walker's name rang repeatedly here yesterday.The New Orleans Saints stirred around their practice facility, doing a post-mortem of Saturday's 20-0 victory over the New York Jets. But their minds were clearly on the Philadelphia Eagles' offense and the black eye it gave their defense nearly four months ago.Defense isn't just a source of pride here on the bayou, it borders on being a religion. And the New Orleans players still are seething that Walker rushed for 114 yards in the opener -- a 15-13 Eagles victory -- between the teams back on Sept.

MIAMI -- And then there were none.The last of the NFL's unbeaten teams saw its quest for perfection collapse at the hands of a quarterback and feet of a kicker no one else wanted when the Indianapolis Colts upset the Miami Dolphins, 27-24, in overtime yesterday.Cary Blanchard kicked the game-winning, 27-yard field goal, as the Colts (3-2) knocked off a 4-0 team for the second consecutive week. Indianapolis also defeated the St. Louis Rams, 21-18, on Oct. 1.This time, quarterback Jim Harbaugh rallied the Colts from a 21-point halftime deficit to steal the spotlight from Dan Marino, who set the NFL's all-time completion record early in the game.
