With very little having gone right for the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys of late, both teams understand what's at stake Sunday in this crucial NFC East clash.
Philadelphia tries to avoid dropping five straight for the first time under coach Andy Reid when it hosts Dallas, which has lost four of five.
Since winning three of their first four games, the Eagles' season has taken a turn for the worse. Philadelphia (3-5) saw its woes continue Monday in a 28-13 road loss to New Orleans, which sacked Michael Vick seven times thanks to a dismal display from the Eagles' depleted offensive line.
"I've just got to believe in the guys in front of me and do whatever it takes to get the ball out whether I've got to slide or move, break contain," said Vick, who will continue to start under center. "Regardless, I just have to continue to maintain trust in them. That's part of my job as a quarterback and I have to keep believing. Keep believing."...
BEST OF MAXIM
RETURN OF CHUCKY?
The speculation out of Philadelphia is if Andy Reid is relieved of his head coaching duties for the reeling Eagles at season's end, Jon Gruden possibly could be his replacement.
The ongoing saga of Michael Vick and what his future holds in Philadelphia got more complicated this week when Marcus Vick decided to spend the extent of Monday Night Football tweeting a defense of his brother and saying he wanted to be traded. Marcus Vick’s entertaining rant, which put the blame on just about everybody but his older brother, led to Michael Vick later apologizing...

NEW ORLEANS -- So much for players-only meetings. Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Michael Vick used the occasion of his team's three-game October nosedive to bring his teammates behind closed doors last week in an attempt to hash out their woes. After a 28-13 loss to the New Orleans Saints on Monday night -- the Eagles' fourth consecutive defeat and fifth in six games...
If you had told me before the game that the Saints would sack Michael Vick 7 times and hold the Eagles to 7 points, I would have laughed in your face. If you told me they'd yield 447 yards, I'd absolutely believe you. If you told me both would happen, I'd probably seek to have you institutionalized. But that's exactly what happened oddly enough. Make no mistake, the...
In my (biased) mind, I truly think the Eagles vs. Cowboys is the greatest rivalry in the NFL today. Each time the two teams meet, there is always something on the line.Last year, the Cowboys playoff spot counted on a win in Week 16; unfortunately they lost after Tony Romo went down early on with a hand injury.This year, they will play for their playoff lives.Sitting at 3-5, neither...
