2. Pure and Simple Revenge

There is obviously bad blood between the Cowboys and the Eagles. As divisional rivals, there has been for years. But the last time these two faced off, Dallas embarrassed this Philadelphia team at home 17-3. Foles had his worst game as a professional completing just 11 of 29 passes for 80 yards. His average yards per attempt was a dismal 2.8.  Foles was mercifully knocked out of the game with a concussion at the end of the third quarter. And rookie quarterback Matt Barkley abruptly introduced himself to the NFL by throwing three interceptions. The NFL’s leading rusher, McCoy. was also held to just 55 yards on the ground. Bottom line: The Eagles got embarrassed at home. And now they have a chance for revenge by denying the Cowboys a chance at the postseason…once again.
