With top spot in the NFC East on the line, the Philadelphia Eagles visit the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday as part of the Thanksgiving schedule.
In the first of two meetings across 18 days, the Eagles will look to remain unbeaten in the division and improve to 6-0 on the holiday while simultaneously looking to prevent the Cowboys from securing a third straight win.
They are currently tied for first place in the NFC East at 8-3, and Philadelphia recovered from a blowout loss to the Green Bay Packers with Sunday’s win over the Tennessee Titans to get back to winning ways.
While they have lost three of their last four games on the road, they’ve won three of four at Dallas which includes the NFC East title-winning game in Week 17 last season with Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo sidelined after undergoing back surgery.
However, Romo will be on the field on Thursday and has thrown for seven touchdowns and no interceptions in his last two games.
In addition, league rushing leader DeMarco Murray posted his 10th 100-yard game with 121 on 24 carries in the win over the New York Giants on Sunday, while receiver Dez Bryant is tied for the most touchdown receptions since Week 8 with six.
Combined with the Eagles’ vulnerability through the air, Romo will arguably look to Bryant to make a vital impact, but naturally, Philadelphia have their own weapons which will keep the Cowboys defense pre-occupied.
The teams meet again on December 4 at Lincoln Financial Field, but for now, they will be desperate to draw first blood and take the advantage in the race for top spot in the division.
