Eagles at Cowboys : Your Thanksgiving Day Preview

The Dallas Cowboys play on Thanksgiving every year, but few of those games have been as important as their 2014 holiday matchup. The Philadelphia Eagles are set to visit AT&T Stadium in a game that could determine the ultimate winner of the NFC East.

Both teams have 8-3 records; however the Eagles have the tiebreaker placing them in first place by virtue of their 2-0 division record so far this season. This matchup will see Cowboys QB Tony Romo placed against Eagles QB Mark Sanchez in the battle for first place.

The Eagles are coming off of a home win over the Tennessee Titans, and the Cowboys are coming home from a road win against the New York Giants. Looking forward to the game tomorrow afternoon, among the injuries mounting for the Dallas Cowboys of note are Quarterback Tony Romo (who is still dealing with the fractures in his back), Wide Receiver Terrance Williams, and also Linebacker Rolando McClain. Romo, Williams, and McClain are all listed as probable on the team’s injury report.

Among the injuries for the Philadelphia Eagles of note are Quarterback Nick Foles (still out because of the broken collarbone), Wide Receiver Jordan Matthews who has become one of Quarterback Mark Sanchez’s favorite targets, Linebacker Emmanuel Acho, and also Kicker Cody Parkey. Nick Foles is still listed as out while Acho is listed as Questionable, and Parkey & Matthews are listed as probable. Though, the injuries to Cody and Jordan could potentially play into the game if they get anymore banged up than what they are currently.

Will the Eagles fly high out if AT&T Stadium back to Philadelphia with a win and another tiebreaker over the Cowboys coming down the stretch? Or will Dallas manage to knock off the high flying Eagles in a Thanksgiving showdown? It will definitely be interesting to see what happens between these two NFC East competitors who play twice in the next three weeks.
