• The Eagles, led by owner Jeffrey Lurie, know exactly what they’re doing. Parking around Lincoln Financial Field costs $10, and security officials patrol the parking lots to make sure tailgaters don’t block lanes or take two or three spots.

The opposite is the case at FedEx Field, where parking costs $35, organization is a rumor and tailgaters get away with everything and always have an obscene gesture waiting for those who dare ask them to move their grill.

• Around 11 a.m., Redskins receiver Santana Moss was on the field testing his balky hamstring. Moss, Brandon Lloyd, Clinton Portis and assistant coach Bob Saunders formed a square to play catch. The consensus among reporters is Saunders has the best throwing touch of anybody who works at Redskin Park.

• The best show on television was represented at Lincoln Financial. When Eagles cornerback Sheldon Brown intercepted a Mark Brunell pass and returned it 70 yards for a third-quarter touchdown, the Eagles’ big screen played the “24” theme, complete with logo, for Brown’s jersey logo.
