To football fans, Gov. Christie's greatest mistake may be that he's not rooting for the home team. They argue correctly that as a New Jerseyan, he has plenty of choices: the Eagles, the Giants, and the Jets. But the governor has a bigger problem than his conspicuous cheering for the hated Dallas Cowboys while sporting an orange sweater like some kind of jerk-o'-lantern. Christie's widely publicized acceptance of freebies from Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is more unseemly than his cheerleading.

DALLAS - So much for the idea that Oklahoma State didn't care about playing in the Heart of Dallas Bowl. Clint Chelf threw three of his team's five touchdown passes and the Cowboys shook off a tough Big 12 finish by rolling up 524 yards and forcing five Purdue turnovers in a dominating 58-14 victory on Tuesday. Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy didn't hide the disappointment of sliding down the bowl priority list with an overtime loss to Oklahoma when the rival Sooners scored in the final seconds of regulation, followed by another narrow defeat at Baylor to finish the regular season.

IRVING, Texas - While Dallas owner Jerry Jones is playing the fear factor as the Cowboys get to host the Eagles on Saturday, his coach and players are focused just on playing the game. Earlier this week, Jones said on a radio show that he was "scared" of the Eagles, who routed his team, 34-7, nearly 2 months ago at Lincoln Financial Field. "It's probably not my position to explain that," coach Jason Garrett said yesterday, when asked about Jones' remark. "I know that we as coaches and players are focused on getting ready to play our best on Saturday . . . We have great respect for their team.

The Dallas Cowboys have waived veteran cornerback Tyrone Williams, an early season addition who was supposed to fill in for some injured players but instead got hurt himself. Williams was signed in late September and activated for three games in October. He left the third one, against Detroit, with a strained hamstring on the first series and hadn't practiced in the 2 weeks since. The Cowboys said they would move him to injured reserve if he clears waivers. He was dropped Saturday.

The Dallas Cowboys won only once in 1989. But that was then. Yesterday, the Cowboys routed the visiting Phoenix Cardinals, 41-10. That improved their record to 7-7. It was also their fourth consecutive victory, the first time that has happened since 1985, which is also the last time the Cowboys advanced into the playoffs. With Kansas City's loss to Houston, they even own the NFL's longest current winning streak. If the season ended now, Dallas would be in the playoffs as the NFC's third wild-card entry.

FORT WORTH, Texas - Here come the Eagles of Philadelphia on Christmas Eve, which gives us about a three-hour Saturday window to mix in some acceptable hate and venom in the otherwise joyous holiday season. It's kind of like when your in-laws from Arkansas show up this time of year with cheap presents, while also asking for the high-dollar wine to be poured immediately. Venom happens. My friend, the football Einstein, has informed me the Cowboys will not win this must-win game (don't start with me on "they could lose this game and still . . . ")

Eagles vs. Cowboys in November was supposed to at least pit two NFC East rivals vying for playoff spots against each other. But what we have instead is the 3-5 Disappointment Bowl. The teams are mirror images of each other. The Eagles and Cowboys are mistake-prone and among the league leaders in turnovers and penalties. They have offenses that can gobble up yards but can't produce in the red zone. They have two quarterbacks who have given the ball away at an alarming rate -  Michael Vick  has 14 of the Eagles' 19 turnovers and  Tony Romo  has 15 of the Cowboys' 19. And they have head coaches on the hot seat, although  Jason Garrett  seems to have more security with Dallas than  Andy Reid  does with the Eagles.

If the Eagles were counting on their opponent being overconfident in Saturday's playoff rematch, the Cowboys aren't taking the bait. To hear the Cowboys talk this week, Sunday's regular- season win over the Eagles was a squeaker, not a 24-0 domination. "If you go back and look at the plays they missed, if they would have made those plays it would have been a completely different game," linebacker Anthony Spencer said. "We know coming into this game that we're going to have to come in and get on top of them.

TAMPA, Fla. - The Cowboys are giving Felix Jones a chance to be their lead back. He is acting like he knows what to do with the job. For the second consecutive week since replacing the injured DeMarco Murray in the starting lineup, Jones rushed for more than 100 yards Saturday night, and gave the Cowboys a threat in the running game in their 31-15 victory against Tampa Bay. "I thought under the circumstances he had about as...

THE NFL allows the gang mentality of NFL players to demonstrate against police officers, but refused the Dallas Cowboys owner's request to honor police officers killed by radicals. Cowboys owner Jerry is a lot of things, but at least he has guts. He wanted to honor police officers in his community with a patch. The NFL said no. My question is . . . why? The national FOP and local FOP must tell the owners of NFL teams in their city how they feel about the NFL slapping police officers' families in their face.

DENVER - The Phillies boarded their flight west on Wednesday afternoon wearing black cowboy hats. Carlos Ruiz, who lives on a ranch during the offseason in Panama, bought the hats for the players and coaches to wear to Denver for the final road trip before the all-star break. The team's first half has been filled with ups and downs, but at least it was guaranteed to end in style. "Everybody was happy wearing the cowboy hats. It was something different," Ruiz said. "I try to keep everyone relaxed.

TAMPA, Fla. - When the schedule makers drew up this year's list of NFL games, few probably thought that after nine of them that the Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers would be on equal footing. The Eagles were coming off consecutive 10-win seasons with high hopes, while the Bucs went 2-14 and, despite drafting quarterback Jameis Winston from Florida State with the first overall pick, still seemed a distance away from respectability. Yet when the Bucs visit Lincoln Financial Field on Sunday, both teams will have 4-5 marks after Tampa Bay's comeback, 10-6 win over the luckless Dallas Cowboys Sunday at Raymond James Stadium.

GREG HARDY has to go. The Cowboys defensive end, who last year was found guilty at a bench trial of assaulting his former girlfriend, was on the field yesterday acting like the creep he is during a 10-6 loss to the Buccaneers. There are two reasons Hardy is still playing. 1. He appealed the judge's ruling and, before a jury trial could commence, reached a civil settlement with the girlfriend, Nicole Holder, who then decided she would no longer pursue the case. 2. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is an idiot who signed Hardy to a one-year, incentive-laden deal that could be worth over $13 million.

IRVING, Texas - Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Jack Crawford laughed at the question and pleaded guilty when talking about the beginning of his football career in South Jersey at St. Augustine. Speaking a couple of days before a 33-27 loss to the Eagles on Sunday, Crawford was asked if he knew how to put the pads on when he first took up the game as a junior in high school. "No, I didn't know how to put them on at all," he said, laughing. "I didn't know there were so many pads, and I came into the locker room and didn't know how to do it. " He quickly learned the rudiments of the game.

CHIP KELLY delivered a message to his players this week. It came in the form of a video clip from the Eagles' 13-play touchdown drive in the second quarter of their 33-27 win over the Cowboys on Sunday night. Featured on the screen was a shot of Dallas defenders struggling to catch their breath as a ferocious rushing attack backed them toward their goal line. As Lane Johnson talked about that clip, his voice flickered with excitement. "That was the best our tempo has been all season," said Johnson, whose ability to fill the void left by Jason Peters at left tackle was a critical factor in both the drive and the win. "You could see it. " For Kelly, the clip served as a visceral reminder to his players of the benefits of playing fast, hard and clean.

SOME NUMBERS that mattered in the Eagles' 33-27 overtime win over the Cowboys Sunday night: 0 The total number of giveaways by the Eagles. It was the first time this season the Eagles didn't turn the ball over at least once, and it was only the third time quarterback Sam Bradford didn't have an interception. It was only the second turnover-free game by the Eagles in the last two seasons. They had six of them in 2013. 96.9 Sam Bradford's second-half passer rating this season, which is a whopping 34 points higher than his first-half passer rating.

Jordan Matthews and Sam Bradford have been targets of criticism this season, and for good reason. But when you connect the way they did as the clock neared midnight, winning the game on the first drive of overtime, against the Cowboys, in Jerryworld, well, it goes a long way toward redemption. * Jordan Hicks has to be the best thing Eagles general manager Chip Kelly has ever done. Hicks' pick-six in the fourth quarter is the flashiest example so far his year, but he has been an undeniable godsend for this defense in 2015.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Each and every season has its seminal moments and it's usually impossible to tell what they are until it's over. If, for instance, you thought the Eagles' lopsided win in Dallas last season was a defining point, you stood corrected a few weeks later when the Cowboys showed up at Lincoln Financial Field and returned the favor to take control of an NFC East they would eventually win. That's when the questioning of Chip Kelly...

ARLINGTON, Texas - Whether he was catching the ball or drawing a slew of defenders, Dallas receiver Dez Bryant was a huge presence but it wasn't enough as the Eagles beat the Cowboys, 33-27, in overtime at AT&T Stadium. Bryant started quickly, making two catches for 57 yards in the Cowboys' opening 11-play, 93-yard drive that ended with Matt Cassel's 5-yard touchdown pass to Cole Beasley. Last week Bryant returned from a broken foot that sidelined him for five games, including the Cowboys' 20-10 win over the Eagles in Week 2. During last week's 13-12 loss to Seattle, he had two receptions for 12 yards.
