Eagles’ Season Ends Just in Time for the Holidays, Cowboys

Dec 24, 2011, 4:37 PM EDT

The Giants defeated the Jets, finally ending the Eagles' playoff hopes.

It’s Dallas. Absent the rivalry, this game is now officially meaningless.

The Eagles are done — for real this time. The Giants are about to defeat the Jets, eliminating Philadelphia from post-season contention. All the Birds have left to play for are pride and bragging rights.

The game doesn’t mean all that much to the Cowboys either. Regardless of tonight’s outcome, they have to beat the Giants in New York next week to clinch the NFC East.

Eagles lead 7-0 in the first quarter, and Stephen McGee is in at quarterback for Dallas after Tony Romo injured his hand.
