Kickoff time and network: Sunday, Dec. 29 at 1 p.m. ET on Fox
When these teams last met at Cowboys Stadium, the Eagles had what was easily their best offensive showing of 2012, putting up 33 points thanks to big performances from Bryce Brown, Brent Celek and Jason Avant.
But that still came in a losing effort because the Eagles couldn't stop the red-hot Dallas offense. So if that unit keeps gaining momentum and the defense is healthier this time around, Philly could be in trouble.
Of course, it's difficult to look at past matchups with this Eagles team, even when breaking down divisional games. Too much has changed this offseason. We really don't know what to expect.
What we do know is the Eagles had better be ready to step it up in pass protection against DeMarcus Ware, Anthony Spencer and that Dallas defensive front.
The key on D, naturally, will be to stop Dez Bryant, who scored three times in two victories over the Eagles last year. Will Bradley Fletcher and Cary Williams fare better than Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie did?
Prediction: Cowboys 27, Eagles 20
Who knows what kind of shape these teams will be in by the time this matchup is played, but I think Dallas will have something more to play for at this point, and the Cowboys are at home.
