Wulf's Den: Introducing The "Feeley" -
Jason Kelce helps determine who has the best/worst beards on the Eagles.

The Rematch - Iggles Blitz
The Eagles shouldn’t be overconfident since they are coming off a tough loss to Seattle. The Seahawks totally shut down the offense and something tells me that Chip Kelly will have his guys ready to go nuts on Sunday night. He considers 139 yards and 14 points to be a bad half of football. That’s a disastrous game. Kelly will want to get the ball to start the game and get the offense into the end zone ASAP. He will want to make Seattle a distant memory.

Chip Talks, and We Wonder - Inquirer
So there’s this topic that fascinates me: the interactions among pro coaches, pro athletes, and the media who cover them. Here’s one example: the press conferences that NFL coaches give each week. I often have this conversation with people who aren’t in the sports-media profession - that what they see or hear in these conferences isn’t necessarily the whole truth, that how a coach deals with players and reporters goes beyond those (literally) staged comments, that you never know the full impact of what a coach says or how he says it.

The Matchup: Eagles Vs. Cowboys - Birds 24/7
The Eagles' defensive line answered the call in the first game, limiting DeMarco Murray to 73 yards and 3.7 YPC. Both were season lows. Fletcher Cox, Bennie Logan and Cedric Thornton were dominant against the run. The Eagles' run defense has been consistent all year long and ranks eighth in DVOA. Mychal Kendricks is playing at a high level, and Connor Barwin shows up every week, setting the edge and funneling runs inside.

As McCoy goes, so go the Eagles - Daily News
HERE'S THE difference between DeMarco Murray and LeSean McCoy as far as their value to their teams is concerned: Murray, who leads the NFL in rushing by the length of almost four football fields, can be held to just 50 yards Sunday night by Fletcher Cox & Company and the Cowboys still can win the game.

Ed Rendell attacks Chris Christie's pro-Dallas Cowboys policies - The 700 Level
It’s one thing for an 11-year-old to be a Dallas Cowboys fan. It’s quite another for the governor of New Jersey. Chris Christie has made it no secret that his allegiances lay with Dallas, yet another reason you should never trust a politician. That’s made him a target of sports and political pundits alike, or both in the case of Ed Rendell, former Pennsylvania governor and current panelist on CSN’s Eagles Postgame Live.

Cowboys Cornerback Orlando Scandrick Taught a Nine-Year-Old Children’s Hospital Patient a Lesson by Kicking Onsides Against Him in Madden - Crossing Broad
Some Tweets from Orlando Scandrick’s teammates made the rounds the other day after the Cowboys cornerback went for two and kicked onsides in a game of Madden against a nine-year-old Children’s Hospital patient.

Mosher's scouting report: Eagles-Cowboys - CSN Philly
After the 256 total rushing yards they put on Dallas on Thanksgiving, the Eagles expect the Cowboys to make some adjustments. They’re thinking the Cowboys might borrow a few concepts from Seattle. Problem is, Seattle has Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor, Bobby Wagner and Michael Bennett. The Cowboys have ... Barry Church?

Cowboys vs. Eagles preview: 3 questions that will decide the NFC East - SB Nation
The Cowboys and Eagles meet again this week for a game that will likely decide the division crown. Retired NFL defensive end Stephen White previews the game.
