It was hard to believe the team that looked so efficient against Dallas was the same team that lost four straight and blew three leads in the fourth quarter.
But there they were, marching up and down the field and not allowing the Dallas offense to breathe. So what does it mean? Are the Eagles legit right now or were the Cowboys simply that bad?
It was probably a little bit of both. Not to worry though, the NFL is filled with teams that will play just as poorly as the Cowboys, allowing the Eagles to go on a run.
The Eagles are going to have a hard time stopping Matt Forte. He is a versatile back who can run the ball effectively and burn any defense with his pass catching out of the backfield.
Fortunately for the Eagles, Jay Cutler is around to screw it all up.
Cutler threw four touchdowns and no picks in last year's meeting, so it might be hard to believe he will not have a good game this year.
But if you pay attention to Cutler, you know he capable of throwing a couple of picks and getting sacked a handful of times in any game. This is one of those games.
Bears 17 , Eagles 28 (4-4)
Like the average guest on the Jerry Springer Show, you take one look at Kevin Kolb and tell yourself, "Glad I'm not in his shoes."
Granted, Kolb makes a lot more money than any collective group of guests that every appeared on the show. But he's still a mess, which is all that matters.
The only person who can't view Kolb's season as a disaster is Vince Young. Why didn't someone bargain for contraction in the latest CBA? Get rid of the Cardinals, please.
Don't look now, but the Eagles might be one game back of the Giants.
Arizona 14, Eagles 34 (5-4)
It never makes sense when people look at the schedule in the beginning of the year and say, "Oh, the Eagles will split with the Giants."
These teams don't split games.
Back in 2000 the Giants beat the Eagles three straight times in one season, giving the Giants nine straight wins over the Eagles.
Philly recently had its six-game win streak snapped this season. Now it's time for the Giants to rip off a bunch of wins in a row.
With a couple tough spots left on the schedule, this game could be the one that comes back to haunt the Eagles at the end of the year.
Giants 30, Eagles 27 (5-5)
The Eagles have a shot in this game thanks to New England's inconsistent defense.
The downside is the Eagles have had their own defensive lapses. Most will think the difference is Tom Brady vs. Michael Vick.
It makes sense to go that route, but why ignore the running game? The Eagles' running game is explosive thanks to LeSean McCoy. It opens up all of the options for the Eagles' offense.
Following a tough loss to the Giants, the Eagles bounce back to win a shootout.
New England 35, Philadelphia 38 (6-5)
On the surface this game seems like a layup.
The Eagles are coming off emotional games against the Giants and Patriots and then have to go across the country on a short week. All of a sudden the game becomes a lot tougher.
The good news right now is the Seahawks are dead and the 49ers have the NFC West locked up. If San Francisco were floundering around in mediocrity, Seattle would have something to play for and the motivation to pull of the upset.
The timing of the game will keep this game closer than anybody wants.
Seattle 14, Philadelphia 20 (7-5)
Miami will be in Andrew Luck mode while the Eagles will only be happy to contribute to the cause.
The short week against the Seahawks comes back to help the Eagles here as they get extra time to rest for a road trip to Miami.
No one would look forward to this game if it were in Philly. But with the chance for fans to travel to South Beach, this date is circled on a lot of calendars.
Miami 10, Philadelphia 23 (8-5)
Right now the Jets have three losses and the Eagles have four.
If both teams can turn things around, this game could determine who goes to the playoffs in their respective conferences. It is rare to see an inter-conference game have such significance.
It's hard to ignore the first six games of the year when looking at this matchup. The Eagles are more than capable of coming up with a bad game at the wrong time. It feels like that will happen here.
Then again, it's also hard to ignore how bad Mark Sanchez is.
Jets 10, Philadelphia 13 (9-5)
A win here would make the Eagles 7-1 over their last eight games.
The thing I don't get is when people say, "They can't possibly win seven of eight games, so they have to lose in this spot."
It doesn't work like that. Certain situations make it difficult to win, but reeling off a bunch of wins in a row doesn't make it difficult to win another game.
The loser of this game will need a lot in the final week of the season to get into the playoffs. With so much one the line it only makes sense to think Tony Romo comes up small.
Dallas 17, Philadelphia 19 (10-5)
Why not? Does anything in the NFL make much sense this year?
Maybe the Eagles will end the season on an 8-1 run before they head into the playoffs. At this point anything seems possible, except for the Redskins winning this game.
Washington 20, Philadelphia 31 (11-5)
