"It's great teams and teams that find themselves in the hunt when the time comes," Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb said. "I think everyone that knows about the NFC East and talks about the teams that we have and how competitive we are, it seems like everybody kind of falls off the bandwagon a little bit in the middle of the season, and towards the end they join back on. Rightfully so, because when you talk about Dallas and New York, they are obviously two top teams that people focus on and are willing to do whatever it takes to win."

A win also gives them the tiebreaker over the Eagles for the time being (division record) to go with their tiebreaker over the Cowboys. And if the Eagles want to take a step toward locking up the NFC East, they need to win, which would give them the tiebreaker over the Giants and at least a share of first place in the division with three games to play.
