The Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys are tied for first place in the NFC East, each with a 3-3 record. The winner of this game will get sole possession of first place in the division and be the only team in the division with a record of above .500.
The Eagles will be without Michael Vick for the game, meaning back up Nick Foles will be under center. That necessarily isn’t a down grade. Foles has been dominant this season completing 67.2% of his passes for 542 yards, 6 touchdowns and no interceptions.
“I feel really comfortable here. I feel comfortable with our personnel, our plays, everything,” Foles said, via ESPN. “It helps when you have a great relationship with the players, the coaches, and when you go into the game you’re all on the same page. … Everybody stuck together, and it was another team win.”
The Dallas Cowboys will be with out leading running back DeMarco Murray and most likely without defensive end DeMarcus Ware. Jerry Jones said the Cowboys will be careful with Ware, they can’t afford to rush him back and risk him further injuring himself. They’re already struggling with depth on the defensive line after losing Anthony Spencer and Tyrone Crawford for the season and releasing Jay Ratliff.
