Quick Take: Eagles (5-4) at Bengals (1-8)

Last meeting
In the 2004 season finale, Rudi Johnson scored three touchdowns as the Bengals rolled to a 38-10 victory over the Eagles, who were resting many of their starters in preparation for the postseason.

The Eagles have won two of the last three meetings with the Bengals, but Cincinnati leads the overall series, 7-3.

Last week
The Eagles couldn't overcome Brandon Jacobs's two touchdowns and 126 rushing yards, falling to 0-3 vs. the NFC East with a 36-31 loss to the Giants. ... The Bengals had a bye.

Keep your eye on ...
The Bradley effect: After recording 18 tackles all of last season, LB Stewart Bradley has emerged in his second season. Now a full-time starter, Bradley leads his team with 64 tackles, including 14 on Sunday vs. the Giants.

Westbrook's touches: The Eagles are 1-2 this season when Brian Westbrook touches the ball fewer than 20 times. In last weeks' loss to the Giants, he had just 13 carries and three receptions that netted 59 total yards. Look for the Eagles to get Westbrook more involved against Cincinnati's 25th-ranked run defense.

Johnson coming around: It's been a tough first half for Chad Johnson, between a shoulder injury suffered during the preseason and the loss of Carson Palmer for five of the last six games. But Johnson's numbers over the last four games indicate he may finally be turning the corner. In that time he's caught three touchdowns, while averaging 5.8 catches per game -- numbers consistent with his statistics last year.
