The Eagles won the NFC East Division by escaping Dallas with a 24-22 victory Sunday night.
The Eagles are in Dallas tonight for a “win or go home” NFC East championship matchup against the Cowboys — and fans in South Philadelphia are weighing in on the game.
The Eagles appear to be the popular pick to win this weekend’s crucial game against the Dallas Cowboys.
The Eagles (9-6) need a win or tie over the Cowboys (8-7) to clinch their first division title since 2010 and secure the No. 3 seed. The loser goes home.
Nick Foles and Kyle Orton were backup quarterbacks when the season began. On Sunday night in Dallas, they’ll line up under center as starters with the NFC East Championship at stake.

Nick Foles doesn’t irritate easily. He’s a what-you-see-is-what-you-get kind of a guy, with a searing competitive streak lying just beneath his placid veneer. In other words, on game days, Foles wants to surgically rip your throat out with a smile.
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.
Dallas owner Jerry Jones says the Cowboys aren’t ruling Tony Romo out of a winner-take-all game against the Eagles Sunday.
Monday Night on 94WIP’s Player Lounge show, Eagles running back LeSean McCoy had a special Christmas message for Eagles fans.
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.
