Game Preview – PHI at DAL

The Game of the Year.

Eagles at Cowboys.

This is one time when “at” is a good word. Eagles at Dallas in recent years.

2017 – Win
2016 – Loss
2015 – Win
2014 – Win
2013 – Win
2012 – Loss
2011 – Win
2010 – Win

The only losses came when rookie QBs (Nick Foles and Carson Wentz) started. This doesn’t guarantee an Eagles win, but it should make you feel better.

I wrote my preview for

This game really does simplify things. If the Eagles win, they’ll be in good position to make the postseason. Beyond that, they’ll have won a big game and would have a 3-game winning streak. You might actually be starting to have some real confidence in them.

If the Eagles lose, the season is over. Not technically, but in reality. And the team would have shown that they aren’t going to win any big games so what would have been the point in seeing this team sneak into the playoffs?

This game will tell us everything we need to know about this team.

Is there enough talent in place for this group to overcome all the injuries and issues and make something of this season?

Are there just too many issues (injuries, free agent losses, coaching defections, Super Bowl hangover, etc.) for this flawed team to overcome?

I’m really interested to see how the Eagles play today. Carson Wentz hasn’t had a game quite like this in his young career. It will be interesting to see how he responds. Can he come up big in a critical situation?

There are questions for Dallas as well. They’ve won four games in a row and the media is starting to buy in. There was some discussion on ESPN this morning about the Cowboys as a legit Super Bowl contender. Beating the Saints really got them a lot of credit. Can Dallas handle success?

Too bad. I hate to hear this.

And if you believe that, I’ve got some swamp land in Nebraska that I’d like to sell you.

Only a few hours left until we find out the way this season will go.
