Eagles (5-8) vs. Cowboys (12-1) Sunday, December 16, 3:15 PM CT on FOX
Week 15 Preview:
The Dallas Cowboys will play their final home game of the regular season when they take on the Philadelphia Eagles at Texas Stadium on Sunday. With a win, the Cowboys can clinch a 1st-round bye in the playoffs, and coupled with a Green Bay loss can seal home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. The Eagles seek revenge after the Cowboys demolished them 38-17 in the first game their year. An Eagles loss eliminates them from playoff contention.
After a sub-par effort on defense last week against the Lions, the Cowboys look to bounce back agtainst an Eagles offense that has really shown no consistency all year.
Tony Romo’s first full season as a starter has been nothing short of spectacular. He has shown time and time again that he can lead his team down the field in crucial situations of the game. Last week against the Lions, he led the Cowboys down the field to 2 touchdowns to end the half, the second one being the game-winner to Jason Witten.
After catching only 3 passes for 21 yards against Detroit, look for Terrell Owens to become a more active player in this game, especially against his former team.
Wide receiverTerry Glenn is still out, but ran routes in practice this week. He could return next Saturday against the Panthers. Cornerback Terence Newman is questionable with a knee and toe injury, but Wade Phillips seems confident that he will be able to play. Wide receiver Patrick Crayton and right tackle Marc Colombo are both probable with ankle injuries.
