And so it has come to this. The Eagles close out the 2013 season with a trip to Texas to take on the hated Cowboys. These two teams last met in Week 17 during the 2008 season. That year, the Eagles’ postseason hopes relied on key wins by the Bears and Raiders. When both teams won, the only thing standing between the Eagles and a trip to the playoffs was those pesky Cowboys. The Eagles, of course, took care of business that day, dismantling Dallas by a score of 44-6 at Lincoln Financial Field. The Eagles went on to reach the NFC Championship, taking down the Giants in the process.
Over the past several seasons, the NFC East has been decided on the last day of the season, and this year could be no exception. After being swept by the Cowboys last season, the Eagles will be burning to take down the Cowboys in Big D this time around. For a longer look at the state of the Cowboys, check out the game preview from Week 7.
