Eagles   34, Lions 20 Strategy:  Heavy snowfall forced the Lions to alter their game plan Sunday, as the pass-happy offense tried to use its big offensive line to pound the Eagles with the running game. The Lions ran the ball more than they passed it but they still used three-receiver sets and took shots down the field, as they will likely do indoors on Monday night. The Lions, who run a 4-3 base defense, relied on a four-man rush to generate pressure, especially with a pair of dominant interior pass rushers pushing the pocket up the middle.

Washington Redskins cornerback DeAngelo Hall said Sunday that the team's medical staff believes he tore his left Achilles tendon early in the second quarter of the team's 37-34 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles. The 11th-year veteran suffered the injury on a play that occurred away from the ball. He said he believed his foot was stepped on as he ran. Immediately after the play, Hall lay, writhing in pain, near the right side of the field, the opposite side of the field from where Eagles running back Darren Sproles had been tackled.

Former Ravens cornerback Cary Williams didn't leave his disdain for the New England Patriots here in Baltimore when he drove up I-95 and signed with the Philadelphia Eagles. While explaining to the Philadelphia Inquirer why he wasn't thrilled with the Eagles' upcoming joint practices with New England, Williams said Friday that the Patriots are “cheaters.” “I give them all the credit in the world, but one fact remains: they haven't won a Super Bowl since they got caught,” Williams said, in reference to the Patriots “Spygate” scandal in 2007.

He used to do work that rattled one's teeth. Now, Sam Havrilak's job is to care for them. A dentist in Parkville, Havrilak tends patients' chompers with the same hands that once passed, caught and cradled the football for the Colts. Every day finds him tackling a host of problems, from fillings to crowns to extractions to root canals. "I do a bit of everything," he said. His football career was much the same. In five years here, Havrilak played six different positions for the Colts and helped them win a world championship in 1970.

Now that the NFL season is here, I'm putting a twist on my weekly Blogger on Blogger series. Each week, I will enlist a blogger who regularly writes about the Ravens' opponent to help me break down the game. This week, I exchanged emails with Max DeMara, who blogs about the Detroit Lions for Lions101.com . MV: The Lions were expected to run away with the NFC North after the Green Bay Packers lost Aaron Rodgers and the Chicago Bears lost Jay Cutler. But the Lions have lost three of their past four games and remain tied with the Bears at 7-6. The Packers, who could get Rodgers back this week or next, are a half game back at 6-6-1.

John Joseph Idzik, 85, who coached the Baltimore Colts during two stints in the 1970s and 1980s after playing for and later coaching the Maryland Terrapins football team, died on Tuesday. Idzik, of Chadds Ford, Pa., owns the fifth-best punt return average in Terps history (12.38) and also played defensive back and halfback after accepting a football scholarship in 1947. Also a third baseman for the Terps' baseball team, he attended Maryland despite receiving a contract offer after high school from the St. Louis Cardinals baseball club.

Before Bobbie Williams won a Super Bowl with the Ravens and before he was a fixture on the Cincinnati Bengals' offensive line, he was a second-round draft pick of the Philadelphia Eagles. In his four years in Philadelphia, Williams was molded into a reliable guard by an offensive line coach named Juan Castillo. Thirteen years after he was drafted by the Eagles, Williams remains close with Castillo, as is the case with many of Castillo's former pupils. Williams still has a lot of respect for Castillo, who is now the run game coordinator for the Ravens, and credits him for helping him kick-start a long, successful NFL career.

"Think for a moment about the term 'Redskins,'" NBC Sports commentator Bob Costas exhorted viewers in his halftime tirade during Sunday's Cowboys-Redskins game. "Ask yourself what the equivalent would be, if directed [at] African Americans, Hispanics, Asians, or members of any other ethnic group. When considered that way, 'Redskins' can't possibly honor a heritage or a noble character trait, nor can it possibly be considered a neutral term. "It is an insult, a slur, no matter how benign the present-day intent," Mr. Costas continued.
