Another week, another game, and more invested time and energy.
Hopefully, this time, it won't be in vain (sigh).
This Sunday, the hated—no, no, the loathed—rival Dallas Cowboys come to town, sporting the same record as Philadelphia Eagles (3-5), hoping for the same miracle to resurrect their unsatisfactory season.
It goes without saying that, for the second consecutive year, the Eagles have by far been the biggest disappointment in the league. Hell, maybe in all of sports.
As much as Eagles fans would love to press fast-forward on the rest of the season to avoid crying themselves to sleep every Sunday or Monday night, life just doesn't work that way. So get the six pack, order Papa John's, make sure the Kleenex are in reach, sit down and brace yourself.
Fortunately, the Eagles are presented with another winnable game. More importantly, it's the second of six within the division. They haven't won a game since Sept. 30 (it's November 9), and as a result, they're on the verge of absolute collapse. So regardless of a 3-5 record, this is still an important game.
The Cowboys are a very beatable team and exhibit many of the same problems as the Eagles. If Philly wants to avoid all-out chaos in their organization, a bum-rush from fans at Lincoln Financial Field and subsequent riots throughout the city, they should pay close attention to these 10 keys to the game.
