For the past few days, the Dallas Cowboys have been more than pre-occupied with the fact that they may be without their QB, Tony Romo, for this Sunday night’s upcoming battle with the Philadelphia Eagles for the NFC Championship and a trip to the NFL playoffs.
But, their biggest worry might not be on the offensive side of the ball, rather it’s trying to figure out how to stop an Eagles offense that just put up 54 points on the Chicago Bears this past Sunday night.
While this news may not be as surprising as the news of the loss of Romo was, the Cowboys were dealt a huge blow on Christmas Day with the news that stopping that Philly offense will be its toughest task of the season, as they’ll once again with the best player on the defensive side of the ball.
Adan Schefter is reporting that linebacker Sean Lee will miss his third straight game with a neck injury:

Lee missed two games in November, but returned for the team’s game against the Bears where he suffered the neck injury and left the game.
