The NFC East will see a battle of their basement teams this week in Dallas. Two teams that started the season with much promise now find themselves rethinking their entire organizations. Andy Reid, the coach of the Eagles, and Dallas’ coach have both been involved in the rumor mill to be possibly on the move. This game may just be the one that breaks one of these coaches who may be playing for their jobs at this point. The game will be showcased on primetime Sunday night at 8:20 PM ET
Dallas comes into the game with a 5-6 record. Last week they had hoped to stay in playoff conversations as they hosted the Washington Redskins at home. They ended up losing 38-31, however, which helped the Redskins get to 5-6. The team has been awful at home despite having the biggest stadium to fill with loyal fans of America’s team. It has yet to be a place that people fear to come play in and a Eagles win is certainly not out of the question.
The Eagles have failed to play up to potential this year as well, and are just 3-8 this season. Philadelphia lost 30-22 last Monday night against the Panthers. Unfortunately, the NFL thought the Eagles would be good and gave them primetime games. Now America must watch poor teams play under the lights, which is something no one wants to do week in and week out. Unfortunately, that will be the case this week though.
