Philadelphia Eagles Vs Dallas Cowboys 12-29-2013 0 views

The 48-30 loss to the Minnesota Vikings 2 weeks ago may have been the best thing that happened to the Philadelphia Eagles all season long. Last week, the team responded by demolishing the Chicago Bears in impressive style. If it weren't for the Vikings loss away 2 weeks ago, I'd caution this as a trap game considering backup QB Kyle Orton will be taking the snaps tonight for the first time all season long. Orton is still an NFL QB, but you can't simulate game speed as a practice squad QB and Dallas isn't the team whose defense is going to step up and make plays to keep them in the game. In fact, they're defense is absolutely horrible. The home field advantage might be enough to keep this close for a half, but over the course of the game we'll gladly lay the 7. Adding to that is a Philly QB in Foles who takes extremely good care of the ball. Good luck.
As an Eagles fan, the one thing that really scares me about this game is a possible lingering mental effect on Foles from the last Dallas game. He hasn't shown me any signs of mental weakness and I don't have any reason to think that he's the kind of guy that will falter in big games, but you never know what's in the kid's head. That last Dallas game was ugly.
