Dallas Cowboys

  1. Winning on the road is hard to do in the NFL

    Dec 30, 2013, 6:57 PM EDT


    Admit it. Some of you thought beating the Dallas Cowboys for the NFC East championship was going to be easy. Without Tony Romo? With the worst defense in the NFL? In the month of December, that franchise’s Kryptonite the last bunch of years? The Philadelphia Eagles did eventually take care of business, but it was…

  2. A few NFL writers/analysts eating their words on Chip Kelly and the Eagles

    It’s the job of a writer or analyst — whether in print, on TV or this newfangled interweb thingy — to make bold statements. We’ve done it here at The Level, and we’ve been wrong sometimes, too. But with the Eagles going worst to first after Sunday night’s win over the Dallas Cowboys, we thought…

    It was no cake walk, but the Philadelphia Eagles took care of business in Dallas, defeating the rival Cowboys 24-22 to win the NFC East crown and a spot in the postseason. One year after posting a 4-12 record under Andy Reid, the Birds are 10-6 in Chip Kelly’s first season on the sideline. They…

  4. LeSean McCoy, the best Eagles running back you’ve ever seen

    Dec 29, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Nick Foles, LeSean McCoy

    Remember when everyone assumed Chip Kelly was going to come in and throw the ball all over the field? People who never watched college football assumed that because his Oregon teams scored 724 points per game, they never ran the ball. Well, LeSean McCoy never got that memo. With a second-quarter run Sunday night, McCoy…

  5. 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.…

  6. Tony Romo won’t Romo division away because he’s out for the season

    Dec 23, 2013, 4:44 PM EDT

    Tony Romo

    Didn’t see this one coming. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a back injury, which means the Philadelphia Eagles will be facing Kyle Orton in Week 17 for the NFC East title. Honestly, it’s a shame. While it gives the…

  7. ‘We want Dallas! We want Dallas!’

    Dec 23, 2013, 12:08 AM EDT


    The Chicago Bears had everything to play for with a division title on the line. The Philadelphia Eagles had the bare minimum to gain—improved seeding in the playoffs, if they get in. Guess which team showed up? The Eagles blew the doors off the visiting Bears 54-11 at Lincoln Financial Field in front of a…

  8. Eagles playoff scenarios: Philly can clinch versus Chicago on Sunday

    Dec 17, 2013, 3:57 PM EDT


    We’ve been fielding quite a few questions over the past 24 hours or so about the remaining playoff scenarios for the Philadelphia Eagles over the final two weeks of the season. So as a public service, here’s a quick, handy guide for the remaining possibilities, as there are only a few. First and foremost, the…

  9. Jerry Jones doesn’t hire a GM because he’ll just ruin the Cowboys anyway

    Dec 17, 2013, 2:14 PM EDT


    The Philadelphia Eagles got knocked down a peg on Sunday, but that’s okay, because the Dallas Cowboys in December. Tony Romo shoulders a lot of the blame for their historic collapse—as well he should—but let’s not forget their porous defense, clueless coaching staff, and most of all, the man behind the curtain. It’s a Dallas…

  10. Cowboys lose, Eagles take over first place, obligatory Jerry Jones sad face

    Dec 10, 2013, 12:07 AM EDT


    It’s only fitting that the hottest team in the NFL is also in first place. By virtue of a 45-28 Dallas Cowboys loss on Monday Night Football, the Philadelphia Eagles have taken over sole possession of the lead in the NFC East. In the grand scheme of things, the designation means very little. The Eagles…

  11. Dom Brown wears Cowboys jersey to the Linc, pouts over backlash

    Oct 21, 2013, 2:47 PM EDT


    The fact that Domonic Brown is a Cowboys fan isn’t a big deal. Sure, Phillies fans may find it distasteful, but most rational people understand professional athletes come from all over the place and have their own rooting interests. Keep showing up for work every day, don’t rub it in, and nobody would even notice…

  12. Busted: Nick Foles plays worst game as a pro on big stage versus Dallas

    Oct 20, 2013, 5:36 PM EDT


    Chip Kelly’s analysis of Nick Foles’ performance in a 17-3 home loss to the Dallas Cowboys: “He was off.” You can say that again. And again. And again. Amid calls from fans and writers (such as myself) for Foles to take over the reins as the Eagles’ starting quarterback from Michael Vick, the second-year quarterback…

  13. Jerry Jones: Tony Romo ‘the best in the business in the fourth quarter’

    Oct 19, 2013, 1:20 PM EDT

    There’s been some discussion in Philadelphia this week about Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo not getting enough credit for being one of the premier passers in the NFL. And actually, I agree with that premise. Romo has been putting up some gaudy numbers the last bunch of seasons. The reason he tends to go overlooked…

  14. Hater’s guide to the Dallas Cowboys (and why you should never date a Cowboys fan)

    Oct 17, 2013, 11:54 AM EDT

    Image (1) tempimage_1_20.png for post 485124

    With first place on the line this weekend, I thought it would be a good opportunity to revisit our dear ‘ol divisional rivals from Texas. Now, the Cowboys haven’t really been on our radar these past two years; we’ve focused most of our energy on hating our own team. To truly hate another, as they…

  15. DeMarcus Ware, DeMarco Murray likely out for Dallas vs. Eagles

    Oct 14, 2013, 4:14 PM EDT


    The Eagles are riding a wave of momentum into their battle for NFC East supremacy against Dallas in Week 7. Now they might be catching a couple of breaks, too. The Cowboys did not escape their 31-16 win over Washington on Sunday night unscathed. Injuries reared their ugly head for a pair of key starters…

  16. Dom Brown Will Wear His Dallas Cowboys Jersey with Pride and Subsequently Laugh at Philly Fans Outrage

    Sep 9, 2013, 1:05 PM EDT


    The only time I really questioned a professional athlete wearing an opposing team’s jersey was that one time Terrell Owens wore a Michael Irvin Cowboys jersey while T.O. was still a member of the Philadelphia Eagles. That one seemed a bit weird in the etiquette department. But T.O. and proper etiquette never really seemed to…

  17. Jerry Jones Has ‘Brain of a 40-Year-Old,’ Cowboys Got the ‘Secret Sauce’

    Aug 29, 2013, 12:55 PM EDT


    Word to the elderly: this is not the way to convince people you are still as sharp as you used to be. Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones desperately wants season-ticket holders and fans to believe he hasn’t been running the football operations into the ground for the better part of the last 15 years. You…

  18. Dallas Cowboys Intend to Sign Demetress Bell – Celebrate Good Times C’mon!

    Jul 19, 2013, 2:30 PM EDT


    Cowboys fans better pray neither of the team’s offensive tackles gets injured this season. It’s not like they have a Jason Peters or some other All-Pro type down there. No, the problem is Demetress Bell could be on their bench. An ESPN Dallas report says the club intends to sign Bell after he passes a…
