Breaking Down The Showdown

The last two weeks have both had the “must-win” feeling for the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles won the first of those two in dominating fashion against the Dallas Cowboys on Thanksgiving, but came up short against the defending champion Seattle Seahawks. This time around, it is basically win or go home for the Eagles.

On Sunday night, the Eagles and Cowboys will battle, and once again first place in the NFC East will be on the line. However, this time around the winner will have a clear path to an NFC East crown by controlling their own destiny. A win for the Cowboys puts them a full game ahead of the Eagles in the standings with just two games to go, while a win for the Eagles puts them a full game ahead of the Cowboys, including holding the head to head tiebreaker between the two. This game will not be another blowout like Thanksgiving day. The Eagles will have to play their best game to beat a hungry Dallas team who certainly has revenge on their mind.

In order to beat Dallas there are a few key match ups in the game that the Eagles will have to win, so let’s take a look at those.
