Monday Night on 94WIP’s Player Lounge show, Eagles running back LeSean McCoy had a special Christmas message for Eagles fans.
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.
The Cowboys 24-23 win sets up a winner-take-all regular season finale against the Philadelphia Eagles next week for the NFC East title.
For many football fans, Week 16 of the season is even bigger than the Super Bowl because it is their personal Super Bowl. It is the week with money on the line. Week 16 is the week fantasy football champions are crowned.
The Cowboys had a collapse of historic proportions on Sunday, as they blew a 26-3 lead to the Packers, losing 37-36 to Green Bay and backup quarterback Matt Flynn.
The Dallas Cowboys defeated the New York Giants 24-21 Sunday to move into a tie with the Eagles for first place in the NFC East.
The vocal, aggregate angst from Cowboys fans is quite understandable. While you would be right to direct your anger at some well-heeled Cowboys, Tony Romo isn’t one of them. In fact, he is the reason you really matter.
What a disappointing offensive show the Birds put on at The Linc on Sunday. As some headlines said, it looked like Foles folded. As a result, Dallas leads the NFC East today with the Eagles second.
The distorted reflection the Eagles projected as an NFC East contender came thundering down in a dusty heap by the handicapped Dallas Cowboys in a woeful offensive performance that spelled a 17-3 Dallas victory.
Both teams are 3-3 and tied for first place in the NFC East entering Sunday’s game at the Linc.
While this may be Chip Kelly’s first rodeo with the Cowboys, there are enough players on the roster who should know what is at stake when the star comes to town. The Eagles look to have the kind of offense that can cause some problems for Dallas, especially if the Cowboys fail to bring any sort of pass rush with the possible absence of DeMarcus Ware.
Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson has been named NFC Offensive Player Of The Week for his performance in the Eagles 36-21 win over the New York Giants.
Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos stayed unbeaten after Tony Romo made one late mistake in a record-setting game.
DeMarco Murray rushed for 175 yards and a touchdown and Tony Romo threw for three scores in a 31-7 victory Sunday.
