Eagles-Cowboys, Week 17, Sunday Night Football, for the NFC East title

Dec 29, 2013, 7:24 PM EDT


Eagles fans have been waiting all week for this. Some of us have been waiting all season. Improbable as it seemed to a few, this matchup in Dallas has been setting up as the decisive battle for the NFC East championship since the schedule was released back in April.

Winners move on to the playoffs. Losers clean out their lockers on Monday.

Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy and DeSean Jackson must be salivating over the opportunity to go at the NFL’s worst defense. The Cowboys are just hoping to survive despite numerous injuries on both sides of the football, none bigger than the season-ending to Tony Romo under center.

On paper, it would appear as though the game favors Philadelphia. Chip Kelly’s squad needs to prove it on the field though.

Can the Birds finish what they started? We’ll find out in 60 minutes.
