The Philadelphia Eagles have a number of deadly weapons on both sides of the ball, but the team has managed to find a way to lose games all season long. Even with their 6-8 record, the Eagles are still in contention to win the NFC East. To have a chance, Philadelphia needs to win its next two games.
Currently, the Dallas Cowboys sit atop the NFC East and control their destiny. A win against the Eagles this week and a New York Giants loss would cement a Dallas playoff berth. The Cowboys do play the Giants next week as well, so even if they lose to the Eagles, a win against the Giants would give them the division.
Dallas is ranked sixth in total offense and are firing on all cylinders. Tony Romo lost breakout star running back DeMarco Murray, but he has his receiver corps back intact. Philadelphia, ranked 10th in total defense, will do its best to slow Romo down.
Michael Vick and LeSean McCoy lead the third-ranked total offense in the NFL, so Dallas, ranked 13th in total defense, will have its hands full.
While the Eagles dominated the Cowboys in their first matchup (34-7), this game will be a whole lot closer.
