The battle for NFC East continues in Week 7 when the Cowboys visit the Eagles on Sunday. The Bird Gang has won two-straight games and are 3-3. With a win against Dallas, they will have sole possession of first place in the division. Think about that for a second...first place!
Quarterback Nick Foles will look to mimic his performances of the last two weeks and repeat the results of those past two games. The Cowboys are a little banged up and already have a defense with plenty of holes. Make no mistake, this may be a must-win for the Eagles.
