Interesting stat

Donovan McNabb has started more Monday Night games than any QB in Eagles history and has an 8-5 record in those games. McNabb has a 10-5 record against Dallas.

What to watch for

With 2 TD passes, Donovan McNabb will surpass Ron Jaworski's team record 175 TD passes.

Bottom Line

With the game being so early this, a lot of the sizzle is taken out of this game. Ironically, the second matchup between these two may well be too late in the season to have that much meaning. Hopefully not. There can be no doubt that this is a bigger game for Dallas than it is the Eagles. Maybe not for the fans as any game against Dallas is huge, but for the team it's only week 2. The game is at Dallas and it's incumbent on them to hold serve. For the Eagles, a surprise win away here would probably vault them to the top of most pundit's power ranks.

Prediction

I thought before the season these two teams would split this year. So I say Dallas wins at home 20-13
