The Eagles were not a relevant team in 2012, but that might not be the same case this year under Chip Kelly.
With just four wins to their name in 2012 campaign, the Eagles didn't have much to hang their hats on last year, but that was not Kelly's team. The new head coach has some decisions to make.
If Michael Vick is the team's starting quarterback, obviously the Cowboys are aware of the threat both his legs and arm present on offense. Even if it's another quarterback, DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin and LeSean McCoy are great weapons to have for anyone under center.
The defense has seen departures like Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, so it will be interesting to see how the Eagles D performs this year.
Kelly is not a defensive mind, but he'll leave that to new defensive coordinator Billy Davis. The former Cleveland Browns linebacker coach is used to working without superstar defenders, so perhaps this will be a fine fit for Philly.
The Eagles are a team that is hard to judge right now, but it's hard for any team to rebound from a 4-12 season under a new regime. Dallas should be able to sweep or at least split the season series with Philadelphia.
