What a character win for the Philadelphia Eagles.
The Eagles never trailed in their 24-22 win over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night and came up with big plays when it mattered the most.
Nickel cornerback Brandon Boykin’s interception with just over a minute to play clinched the NFC East division championship for an Eagles team that enters January as one of the league’s hottest teams. Nick Foles and LeSean McCoy turned in fine performances and a slew of defensive players came up big for Philly.
The Eagles will host the New Orleans Saints in an NFC wild-card game on Saturday, Jan. 4, at 8 p.m. in Philadelphia's first home playoff game in three seasons.
For now, here are a handful of observations from the most heart-stopping win the Eagles have played in years.
