The Eagles make Christmas a sad one for those annoying Cowboys fans.

When the NFL released its schedule and we all began jotting down Ws and Ls next to games, this was one of those contests that felt could go either way. Things haven’t changed much.

Both teams have played the majority of their schedule. They’ve met each other and common opponents, and here we are stating the same theory. This one is the textbook definition of a toss-up.

For the past few seasons, we’ve dedicated a ton of time to discuss the possibility of the race for the NFC East’s crown coming down to two teams, Philly and Dallas. The 2022-2023 regular season hasn’t changed that.

The Giants and Washington Commanders have impressed at times. Some pundits have been less impressed than others by what we’ve all witnessed, but both teams have positioned themselves for strong finishes and, possibly, postseason berths.

As we expected a few months ago, the Eagles and Cowboys have distinguished themselves as the top two teams in the division. They meet on Christmas Eve, and that game will most certainly decide postseason seeding. We expect Philadelphia to win a tight one and give Birds fans everywhere the gift they are seeking.
