Cowboys vs. Eagles Sunday Night Football: Live Reaction, News and Analysis

Week 8 brings a Sunday Night Football matchup featuring two NFC East rivals as the Dallas Cowboys take on the Philadelphia Eagles (NBC 8:30 Eastern).

The Eagles look to claw their way back into the playoff picture. Philadelphia brings an 0-2 home record into the game, while currently sitting at the bottom of the NFC East with a 2-4 record. Michael Vick looks to build on his solid, if not great Week 6 performance against the Redskins when he threw for 237 yards while rushing for 54 yards during the Eagles' 20-13 win.

The Dallas Cowboys are 3-3 after their Week 7 blowout win over the St. Louis Rams. Tony Romo will try and keep his team on pace with the division leading New York Giants, who improved to 5-2 after their 20-17 win over the Miami Dolphins.

For the second week in a row, Dallas will be starting DeMarco Murray in place of injured Felix Jones. If Jones was healthy for Sunday night's game, it would not have been a given that he'd be on the field for the Cowboys' first series. Murray, a rookie out of Oklahoma, had a monster game against St. Louis in Week 7, rushing for 253 yards with a touchdown.

NBC sports executives should be happy with tonight's matchup after last week's mismatch in New Orleans. The Saints demolished the Indianapolis Colts 62-7. The Colts were slated for last Sunday night's game, but were playing without Peyton Manning, who is likely out for the season. NBC can't begin their flex schedule until later in the season.

Keep it here for live reaction to the game and its leading stories, as Michael Vick and the Eagles host Tony Romo and the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football.
