116th meeting, including postseason. That was the season when Dallas rolled to a 13-3 record, a No. 1 seed, and rested stars like Romo and receiver Terrell Owens in the regular-season finale.

He faced a desperate Lions team and a veteran quarterback, Matthew Stafford, who is looking to finally win a playoff game.

The Cowboys have wrapped up the NFC East divisional title before traveling to Philadelphia to play the final regular season. Time will tell, but the bread and butter to the season has been the reliable play of rookie quarterback Dak Prescott and the MVP-caliber season of rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott, who has 1,631 rushing yards and 15 touchdowns. Carson Wentz now ranks 7th in the league with 564 pass attempts, while Prescott has accumulated more passing yards than the Eagles' rookie despite having thrown 113 fewer passes in 2016 (23rd in NFL).

After Dak Prescott's worst performance of the season in the Cowboys' Week 14 loss to the Giants, some talked emerged about whether he could potentially be benched in favor of Tony Romo if he continued to post passer ratings around 45.4 and throw more interceptions than touchdown passes. "I think we pretty much stay to plan". "Any reps I can get against a good team to get myself better to get some momentum going for the playoffs, I'll take it".

Sanchez, who was a win away from the Super Bowl in his first two seasons as a starter with the Jets, has reportedly also had a big influence on Prescott this season as a "coach on the field" with his journeyman experience. The Eagles were 4-2 and held a 10-point fourth-quarter lead before collapsing, and the Cowboys rallied for a 29-23 overtime victory. Brady was sacked 41 times and intercepted 12 times; Prescott has been intercepted four times and sacked 25 times.

-Eagles RB Darren Sproles vs. Cowboys LB Sean Lee. Lee never comes off the field. A seven-time first-team All-Pro selection at defensive tackle in a career for the Cowboys that lasted from 1961 to 1974, Lilly was a first-ballot Pro Football Hall of Fame selection in 1980.

-Eagles DE Brandon Graham vs. Cowboys RT Doug Free. Records are great, but team accomplishments are what matter most. He has had three surgeries in the past two years and only four starts in that span.

Eagles RB Byron Marshall.

The Eagles' move Tuesday to place running back Ryan Mathews on injured reserve was expected after Eagles coach Doug Pederson said last Friday that Mathews will need neck surgery to fix a herniated disk. He had a pair of double-digit-yard runs in his National Football League debut against Baltimore.

After a crushing 42-21 defeat of the Lions, ESPN analyst Jon Gruden gave future Cowboys opponents a warning, according to Fox Sports: "If you have the Dallas Cowboys on your schedule, good luck".
