For all of his accomplishments, Nick Foles is constantly reminded about the first time the Eagles played the Cowboys.
The Philadelphia Eagles have come a long way since the previous time they played Dallas.

It took nanoseconds for the Dallas talk to begin in the Eagles’ locker room soon after their 54-11 thrashing of the Chicago Bears on Sunday night at Lincoln Financial Field.
Forget everything about what happened in the earlier meeting between the Eagles and Cowboys. The Eagles were in the midst of a quarterback revolving door between Nick Foles and Mike Vick and had not quite found their offensive identity. That has changed now. The Eagles offense is firing on all cylinders and should be able to play well against this Dallas defense that really struggles to stop much of anything.
The last time the Eagles won 10 games was in 2010, which also marks the last time they won the NFC East title. The chances that the Eagles break the three-year drought of double-figure victories in a season and a division crown just became better with the news Dallas Cowboys starting quarterback Tony Romo could be out for the season with a back injury.

Outside of his seven-touchdown performance in Oakland earlier this season, this may have been the best game Nick Foles has had all season. Foles completed 21 of 25 passes for 230 yards and a pair of touchdowns, both coming in the first quarter as the Eagles jumped out on top of the Bears from the start.

This could be quite an offensive showdown. Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson vs. Jay Cutler, Matt Forte, Brandon Marshall and Alshon Jeffery.
Philadelphia Police say they will be beefing up the deployment of officers Sunday night, just in case the Eagles clinch the NFC East and fans take to the streets in celebration.
On Sunday the Eagles were thrown a nasty curve ball in the form of a 48-30 loss on the road against the Minnesota Vikings. Will this Eagles team be able to adjust or will the Eagles go down swinging in the final two games of the season? With a division title within sight, with the Eagles owning a one-game lead on the Dallas Cowboys, the Eagles must bounce back to maintain the unfamiliar role of favorite.
