Mark Sanchez and Tony Romo will lead their teams when the Eagles and the Cowboys play on Thanksgiving for the first time in 25 years with the division lead on the line.
The Philadelphia Eagles will look to give all fans tuning in another reason to be thankful. While fans are stuffing themselves with turkey and mashed potatoes, or perhaps another slice of pumpkin pie (or two or three), the Eagles will be taking on the NFC East rival Dallas Cowboys. Up for gabs is first place in the division heading into December, and perhaps a turkey leg up on the competition heading down the home stretch.
Turkey will have a new side dish to make room for this year for football fans in the Philadelphia area. The Philadelphia Eagles will travel to Texas to take on the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving and will hope to celebrate a win the way Reggie White and Seth Joyner did so many years ago.
The Cowboys fall to 6-2 following their loss to the Redskins.
Nick Foles is among the eight quarterbacks featured on Sports Illustrated’s NFL Preview covers.
Michael Barkann and Ike Reese ranked the NFC East teams, position-by-position on their 94WIP MIke & Ike Show.
Pete Prisco of CBSSports.com ranks his most underrated and overrated player for each NFL team, naming Nick Foles the most overrated Eagle.
New Jersey Governor Chris Christie graciously joined the WIP Morning Show on Monday, in-studio, for a lighthearted hour conversation where Christie talked candidly, told stories and even took phone calls.
It’s New Year’s resolution time. Here’s what prominent sports figures are (or should be) saying.
By the time you read this, the Eagles-Dallas game will have been decided. Without Tony Romo, the Dallas Cowboys were expected to lean heavily on running back, De Marco Murray, who had been coming on strong of late. This season, he had surpassed 1,000 yards rushing for the first time in his three-year career.
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.
Despite their dearth of recent success, all eyes will be on the Cowboys. For the karma and the drama, for better or worse, they are America’s team. Mostly for worse. Just watch on Sunday.
Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett announced Friday that Romo underwent back surgery on Friday morning, and is out for the remainder of the season. Kyle Orton will start in place of Romo.
