I talked with two Eagles players who said the team looked at the game films against the Cowboys, made necessary corrections and feel they have a solid plan to rebound. The Eagles were much more focused on missed opportunities than the play of Dallas. I asked a player from the Giants and one from the Redskins about the Eagles' chances in Dallas, and both felt that the Eagles will rebound this week. Which team has the biggest demons to overcome? Do the Eagles have the biggest demons to overcome, having been swept by the Cowboys this year? Or, is it the Cowboys, who have lost six consecutive playoff games? The Eagles know that 19 times since the AFL-NFL merger in 1970 a team that was swept during the regular season met that same team again in the playoffs and came away victors seven times. That means history gives the Eagles a 37 percent chance of winning Saturday's playoff game. The Cowboys also remember all too well that they swept the Giants during the 2007 regular season, then lost at home to them in the playoffs. The Cowboys have a lot to be proud of this season, but their head coach did not get the vote of confidence from owner Jerry Jones heading into this game. A playoff win appears necessary for Wade Phillips to keep his job. The six-game losing streak in the playoffs ties the Cowboys with six other teams for the longest such losing streak. - Pat Kirwan
