Dallas-based TIER REIT plans to sell Center City's Three Parkway building as part of a strategy to exit Philadelphia and focus on other core markets. The 20-story building at 1601 Cherry St. is listed among the properties in TIER REIT's "disposition pipeline" in a presentation on the company's website. The Texas-based real estate investment trust said it does not know when it will begin to actively market the property, spokeswoman Kelly Sargent said Wednesday. TIER REIT's only other remaining Philadelphia holding is a stake in the Wanamaker building for which it is currently seeking a buyer.

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.

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.

THIRTY-SIX minutes and a few clicks under 55 seconds. That's how much of Sunday night's game at Dallas that Malcolm Jenkins played with a concussion, Jenkins said Thursday. It's a number that should give Eagles coach Chip Kelly, the team internist, Dr. Gary Dorshimer, head athletic trainer Chris Peduzzi and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell cause for despair. As the NFL deals with the well-documented, horrible aftermath of repeated head trauma, the league requires teams to take players who exhibit concussion symptoms out of games.

HAD IT HAPPENED in the season opener, most Eagles fans would have barely shrugged. But Monday, when the team announced that Jordan Hicks would go on season-ending injured reserve after tearing his left pectoral tendon Sunday night, it cast a pall over the Birds' overtime victory in Dallas, and brought into question whether the defense can adequately replace Hicks' heady, difference-making play. Hicks took the field only on special teams that opening night in Atlanta. He'd impressed teammates and coaches in training camp as an especially smart, fast, tough, intuitive rookie inside linebacker, but Hicks was stuck behind three really good players - DeMeco Ryans, Kiko Alonso and Mychal Kendricks - at the team's deepest position.

ARLINGTON, Texas - It seemed pretty obvious that Ryan Mathews was on the ground when the ball came out, after Mathews picked up a first down on fourth-and-1, but ref Ed Hochuli's crew ruled a fumble anyway, with a Dallas recovery, on the first possession of overtime. This turned out to be a good thing for the Eagles. The review – which, of course, ended with a ruling of first-and-10 for the Birds at the Dallas 41 - offered a chunk of time that Chip Kelly used to call a crossing pattern for Jordan Matthews that had worked well earlier, in a similar situation, setting up the Eagles' first touchdown.

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.

"This has been about as poor a performance as I can recall ever seeing in this league. " - Fox analyst Troy Aikman during the Eagles' 20-10 loss to Dallas on Sept. 20 LANE JOHNSON seemed as fired up Tuesday about the Eagles' Week 2 loss to the Cowboys as he was the day it happened, maybe because Johnson had just been forced to watch the film again. "It pisses me off, when you feel like you can dominate the guys up front, then you go out there and don't get it done," said Johnson, the Eagles' right tackle.

DALLAS - "The best and safest thing," wrote the ancient Greek playwright Euripedes, "is to keep a balance in your life. " If only Euripedes had experienced football in Dallas. Had he have lived so long, he would have met the men behind the Balding Eagles Booster Club, who arrive six or more hours before high school football games. He would have met fans like Thad Rudd, who has attended the Texas-Oklahoma college football rivalry game 33 years in a row, including the year his brother got married the same weekend (he skipped the wedding)

BOSTON - One of the Schenn brothers returned to the lineup Wednesday and the other missed the game against the Bruins because of an undisclosed injury. Defenseman Luke Schenn, a healthy scratch the previous three games, replaced Brandon Manning (minus-2 over five games). His brother, Brayden, was sidelined by an apparent shoulder injury and is listed as day-to-day. Brayden Schenn was in a violent second-period collision with Dallas' Antoine Roussel on Tuesday, but he returned to the game and took part Wednesday in the morning skate.
