Here's how the Eagles can earn a first round bye - BGN
From late on Sunday night.

The Hunt for #1 - Iggles Blitz
Even though the Eagles played on Thursday, today was a big day for the Eagles. The team is 9-3 and in the hunt for the top spot in the NFC. The other teams in the mix are the Cardinals and Packers.

Game Review: Eagles Offense Vs. the Cowboys - Birds 24/7
Mark Sanchez - He played a smart, clean game, completing 20 of 29 passes for 217 yards and a touchdown. Sanchez fumbled once, but the Eagles recovered. I didn't see a near-INT on any of his pass attempts.

Misdirecting the Cowboys - ChipWagon
Heading into the Cowboys game on Thursday on a short week, Chip clearly saw something on tape of the Dallas defense. Most likely he saw a very aggressive defense that attacks in the run game. As a result, Chip tortured the Cowboys defense on the first 2 opening drives by running misdirection plays over and over again. Whether it was tempo or style, the Cowboys looked completely dumbfounded.

Fan-Demonium: Eagles Still Far From Perfect -
At one point this season, the Dallas Cowboys were 6-1. Running back DeMarco Murray was in serious consideration for MVP. The defense was making plays and some wondered if Dallas might be the best team in the NFC. That sure must seem like a long, long time ago to Dallas fans. Since then, they've gone 2-3 and the wins were over bad teams (the Jaguars and Giants). The Eagles went to Dallas on Thanksgiving and pounded the ‘Boys into the turf. Murray had his worst game of the season. So did Tony Romo. So did Jason Witten. The Dallas offensive line had its worst game of the season. Dez Bryant arguably had his worst game. The Dallas defense had its worst game of the season.

Cox emerging as a force on Eagles' defensive line - Inquirer
The most impressive play in the Eagles' Thanksgiving win over the Dallas Cowboys might not make any highlight reels. It was a second-down run stuff by defensive lineman Fletcher Cox, and promotional campaigns are not usually built around second-down run stuffs. But DeMarco Murray's 1-yard loss 4 yards away from the end zone helped limit the Dallas Cowboys to a field goal instead of a touchdown in the third quarter of a 33-10 Eagles win, and it exemplified Cox's level of play all afternoon.

An unlikely Chip Kelly disciple: Hinkie - Inquirer
It's there that he has found a kinship with Kelly, who last season coached the Eagles to the NFC East title and this season has them at 9-3 and in first place again ahead of Sunday's matchup against the defending Super Bowl champions - the Seattle Seahawks. As it turns out, Kelly has been an object of Hinkie's fascination for the last five years, dating to Hinkie's days as an executive with the Houston Rockets - an indication of just how far Kelly's influence reaches.

Can Eagles go any faster? Tempo rises to new heights - CSN Philly
There’s speed. There’s high speed. There’s breakneck speed. And then there’s what the Eagles were doing in the first half Thursday in Dallas. The Eagles took tempo to new heights in the first half Thursday, averaging more than three plays per minute on the way to a quick 14-point lead and a blowout win over the Cowboys at AT&T Stadium.

Secondary Technique and Analysis vs Cowboys - EaglesPostGame
Cary Williams play was good most of the game but made some mistakes in the second half. He displayed good coverage early when matched up against Dez Bryant. He also did well in run support when the Eagles defense was in cover 2.
