The Eagles WR rumor is still churning but Doug Pederson but the kibosh on trading for one

Could it be possible that a current Eagle is on the move at the deadline? Barwin, Kendricks, Agholor?

DeMarco Murray has been outstanding for the Titans this year. Is there a little regret creeping into your brain with an offense that desperately


Cowboys 5-1, 1st place, +52 point differential 2nd best, BEHIND Eagles' +68, which still leads the NFC

Eagles have won last three games in Dallas

Last year lost at home (which we are all trying to forget) 20-10, beat Dallas in OT 33-27

Dallas lost opener to Giants and have won 5 straight vs. Redskins, Bears, 49ers, Bengals and Packers. How impressive have they been?

What we’re looking at

Eagles D-line vs. Cowboys O-line - can Eagles D play effectively against an elite offensive line?

Jim Schwartz dialing up the blitzes, we would like to see that continue this week

Can the Eagles slow down Ezekiel Elliott?

The DLine came alive last week and historically this current group tends to play better against that Dallas OLine.

Who pairs up with Dez?

Cole Beasley vs. Malcolm Jenkins, hopefully there isn’t repeat from last year. Also Malcolm doesn’t have a concussion going into this game, so that’s probably better already

Paging Zach Ertz… Frank Reich just says he needs more snaps to get involved, but he’s already playing 90% of the snaps

Dallas' defense was supposed to be a horror show, but much like 2014 it’s just not on the field as much and they aren’t allowing points.


Who has been better? Is that even a fair question to ask?

Prescott averaging 30.3 pass attempts per game, fewest in NFL

After a hot start, Wentz has struggled:

1st four starts 103.5 rating, 67.4% completion, 7.5 yds/att.

Last 2 starts, 63.5, 54.0%, 6.3 yds/att

Sunday's game will be the first in NFL history featuring two rookie QBs who have at least four wins going into Week 8.
