Our Dallas Cowboys are about to take on a monumental challenge this weekend as they travel to the Linc to play the 5-2 high octane Eagles. We are going to need to put an almost perfect performance on the field Sunday night, and I think that is exactly what we will see from our Cowboys. Pride is a great motivator and 44-6 is a great way to hurt a grown man’s pride. Anybody who tells you that they are not thinking about that beating in Philly last year is a liar.
Our offense is clicking and I think this will be the return of Jason Witten for a couple reasons. Miles Austin will probably be covered by one of the league’s best lockdown corners Asante Samuel. So I am thinking Austin’s day may be moderate to the ones he has had so far this season. Samuel, who came from New England and that great success they have there, has faced a lot of great receivers and it will no doubt be a huge test for Miles Austin.
We are Cowboys fans and this team right now probably has surpassed all of our expectations. Especially after that 2-2 start. Make no mistake, this game right here is the most important game so far this season. The NFC East title can be the difference between going to Green Bay or Philadelphia in January rather than hosting them in the big house.
We need every game we can have in the palace because Jerry has created an environment that is probably the most difficult in the entire NFL to play in. We must begin with the division if we want a top two seed in the playoffs. We win this game and we will not have to play Philadelphia again until the last game which will be in Dallas. It is not time to think playoffs, it’s time to think Eagles, then Packers, then Redskins, then Raiders. One game at a time.
We have a huge game here and we will need more than Austin or Romo to win. We will need the belief and confidence we all have when the team is doing great, even if they are not doing great. We still need to believe in the team. So as we ride into Philadelphia tonight and get set to enjoy the game, know that the star shines bright and the Cowboys are the best.
