Eagles-Cowboys: The pick

Posted: November 30, 2012

THIS IS the first opponent Nick Foles gets a second look at, but as Foles noted this week, it's also the first opponent that gets to see him the second time. The Cowboys gave up Foles' only touchdown pass so far, after he came in for concussed Michael Vick in the second quarter of the previous meeting, Nov. 11.

Foles got decent protection Monday night and he passed for 119 yards. OK, that was partly because Bryce Brown ran for 178, but still. Looks like the Cowboys are getting DeMarco Murray back, in some fashion. They beat the Eagles by 15 at the Linc. This time they're playing in the Jerrydome, with Evan Mathis slated to make his first-ever regular-season appearance at center.

I'm not feeling an end to the losing streak.

Prediction: Cowboys 27, Eagles 15.
