The Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles meet in back to back weeks, this time for all the marbles in an NFL Playoff contest. The question is: Which of these teams is the hottest going into this game?
The Dallas Cowboys seem to have the upper edge. This is a team that has now pitched back to back shutouts, the last one coming against the Eagles themselves. Tony Romo has been hot, leading his team to big wins over the Saints and bringing those December shutdown rumors to an end.
The Eagles meanwhile, won six straight before falling to the Cowboys in the season finale. But how could the Eagles have performed so badly with a bye week and #2 seeding on the line? I can’t answer that question. I can only ask if McNabb and his team will be in better shape this week in the Wild Card game?
