The Philadelphia Eagles 2015 NFL schedule continues on Sunday afternoon as the team is scheduled to play the Dallas Cowboys in Week 2. It's a huge game between two NFC East rivals. The Eagles (0-1) are pretty much facing a must-win situation this early into the season after losing to the Atlanta Falcons on Monday Night Football. Philadelphia can't really afford to go down 0-2 in the conference and 0-1 in the division.
The good news for the Eagles is they will have home field advantage in this contest. The Eagles will also be facing a Cowboys team that's missing a number of key players. Star wide receiver Dez Bryant, starting guard Ronald Leary, and rookie pass rusher Randy Gregory won't play. Meanwhile, Greg Hardy and Rolando McClain are still suspended. It's really up to Philadelphia to capitalize on these absences.
After really struggling in the first half of the Eagles-Falcons game, Philadelphia seemed up pick up in the second half. For the Eagles' sake, the team better hope they can pick up where they left off. Expectations were high heading into Chip Kelly's third year and he really needs a win here to avoid a disastrous start to the new season.
