The following are odds and ends from the local sports scene.
REID, EAGLES NOTCH VICTORY
For the first time in a month, Philadelphia Eagles Coach Andy Reid didn't have to address questions following a Philadelphia loss. Reid, a former Glendale Community College football player, saw Philadelphia end its four-game losing streak Sunday with a 20-13 road win against the division-rival Washington Redskins.
The Eagles (2-4) received a big effort from running back LeSean McCoy, who rushed for 126 yards in 28 carries and one touchdown. Philadelphia safety Kurt Coleman finished with three interceptions for the Eagles, who will have their bye week before beginning a three-game homestand Oct. 30 against the Dallas Cowboys.
"In the National Football League, they are all must-wins," Reid said in his postgame news conference. "I can't sit here and say we're going to win this one and not this one. We prepare for every game and do the best we can every game.
"This is a tough place to play. They came in with the right attitude and battled like crazy. Now they have a week to rest and get themselves ready for the Cowboys."
The Eagles are in last place in the National Football Conference's East Division, which they won last season.
WIN, LOSS FOR RAIDERS' JACKSON
The Oakland Raiders, coached by former Glendale Community College quarterback Hue Jackson, won their second straight game Sunday with a 24-17 victory against the visiting Cleveland Browns. However, the win proved costly, as the Raiders lost starting quarterback Jason Campbell for likely the remainder of the season because of a broken collarbone he suffered in the first half after landing hard on his shoulder during a scramble.
On Monday, Campbell said he'll undergo surgery soon and hopes to be back in the lineup in six to eight weeks.
Campbell was replaced by Kyle Boller. The only other quarterback on Oakland's roster is rookie Terrelle Pryor. Reports surfaced that the Raiders, who have won two games in a row, might be interested in acquiring quarterback Kyle Orton from the division-rival Denver Broncos.
With Campbell out, Oakland special teams provided the difference during Oakland's first home game since the death of owner Al Davis on Oct. 8. The Raiders improved to 4-2.
"We'll do whatever it takes to win football games," Jackson told the Associated Press. "Every week there's going to be something there to give us a chance to win a game."
"A year ago, we didn't find a way to win these kinds of games. Two years ago, we didn't find a way to win these kinds of game. The team is now believing in each other and fighting like he always thought it could. And they're winning football games."
ESTRADA'S SEASON COMES TO AN END
The Milwaukee Brewers saw their stellar season came to a close Sunday with a 12-6 home loss to the St. Louis Cardinals in the sixth game of the National League Championship Series. Relief pitcher Marco Estrada, a former Glendale Community College player, made two appearances in the series.
The right-hander pitched three innings, allowing four hits and four runs. He struck out four and walked two and finished with a 12.00 earned-run average.
Estrada, who helped Milwaukee win the National League Central Division championship, went 4-8 with a 4.08 ERA in 43 regular-season appearances. In 124 innings, he struck out 88 and walked 29.
