Sunday Night Football open thread: Eagles vs. Cowboys

New, comments

Join us as we take a look at this week's Sunday Night Football game and open a thread for discussion for this NFC East match up that will determine who goes to the playoffs and who goes home.

Brian Bahr

The NFC East division title is on the line this Sunday Night when Philadelphia Eagles play host to the Dallas Cowboys.

The Cowboys have been in this spot before. The last two years, it's been win-or-go-home as Dallas played a divisional opponent. And each of those last two years, they found a way to lose. This time, however, the Cowboys don't have Tony Romo under center. Instead, they have Kyle Orton, who is filling in after Romo underwent season-ending back surgery.

Philadelphia also has a backup under center, but his name is Nick Foles and besides throwing for 2,600 yards and 25 touchdowns in an 11-game span, he's also helped the Eagles win six of their last seven games and even have a chance to sneak into the playoffs.

The winner of tonight's game gets the No. 3 seed in the NFC and a home playoff game next week. The loser gets to sleep in on Monday.

Enjoy... and let us know how you're enjoying the game below!
