Since Andy Reid took over as Eagles coach in 1999, the Eagles have never lost their first game after a bye week. Well, this season's first game after the bye is a Week 8 Sunday night clash at home against the Dallas Cowboys.
The Cowboys are coming off a victory against the St. Louis Rams in which DeMarco Murray established a single game franchise rushing record.
Although very few seem to be overly impressed the Cowboys beat the winless Rams (who were starting a backup quarterback) in their previous game, Dallas' defense frustrated Tom Brady for much of the day before the Patriots rallied.
As expected, their offense will try to establish the run, so we'll see if the Eagles have solved their problems stopping the run. Expect the game to be tight, and it's quite possible Tony Romo will throw a big interception.
My prediction: Eagles victory.
