In a bit of a shocker, Peyton Hillis bested Michael Vick and will grace the cover of the Madden NFL 12 video game. The announcement was made on ESPN2 Wednesday afternoon. The Browns running back, a virtual unknown a year ago, beat out the Eagles quarterback in online voting by a margin of 66 percent to 34 percent and was the last man standing among a 32-player field. A little more than a million votes were registered. To get to the final round, Hillis upset Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers, Kansas City running back Jamaal Charles, Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan, and Baltimore running back Ray Rice.

OK, I'VE LEARNED my lesson. Team meetings, pledges to make this the week the season turns around - none of that means anything with this particular group. As Rich Hofmann pointed out in Thursday's Daily News, the Eagles CAN still get it back together - from a math standpoint, they still hold their fate in their hands, this week against a pretty similar 3-5 train wreck of a team. But Demetress Bell against DeMarcus Ware? Really? After watching the disjointed defensive efforts against Atlanta and New Orleans, I'm convinced something is going on here beyond offensive-line injuries and unfortunate turnovers.

EAGLES quarterback Michael Vick turned 32 on Tuesday and the Dallas Cowboys sent him the following birthday tweet: "Happy Birthday Michael Vick from #CowboysNation we can't wait til November, can you?!?" Accompanying the greeting was a photo of linebacker DeMarcus Ware sacking Vick. It wasn't long before someone at EaglesInsider responded with the tweet: "Did someone burn the game tapes from 2011?" The Eagles, you'll remember, beat the 'Boys twice last season by a combined score of 54-14.

THE DALLAS COWBOYS have reworked the contracts of five starters, including DeMarcus Ware , Jason Witten and Miles Austin , to save salary-cap space. Meanwhile, it also was reported Thursday that the NFL's salary cap for the 2013 season will rise to $123 million from $120.6 million in 2012. Dallas, which was penalized $5 million off its cap in both 2012 and '13, needed to scramble to free up space. By restructuring the deals of star linebacker Ware, tight end Witten, wide receiver Austin, cornerback Brandon Carr and center Ryan Cook , the Cowboys wiped out the $20 million they were projected to be over the cap this year.

The Eagles offensive line is healthy - and just in time. Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters returned to practice Wednesday after missing the last two weeks with a hamstring strain and should be "good to go" Sunday, coach Andy Reid said. Peters could be a key addition as the Eagles face a sack-happy Dallas defense. "They're probably the best defense that we have faced so far," quarterback Michael Vick said. The Cowboys have 17 sacks, tied for eighth most in the NFL. They are led by outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware, whose eight sacks rank second in the league, and bring a varied defensive front that aims to cause havoc among blockers, particularly when they play five defensive backs.

We finally heard from Jerry Jones yesterday, but he wasn't exactly forthcoming on a lot of issues, and he refused to discuss most of the hot-button topics facing the Cowboys. It's strange to have Jerry Jones not ready and willing to talk about all things Cowboys. He's never been shy about it before. I welcome this development because I think the Cowboys actually talk a little too much in the media, instead of handling some stuff in-house. Meanwhile, Wade Phillips has refused to talk to the press at all. The most welcome news that came from Jerry was the fact that they are having initial discussions with DeMarcus Ware's agent about getting him signed to a new contract.

IRVING, Texas - Listening to Dallas Cowboys coach Jason Garrett one would think Sunday's much-anticipated NFC East showdown against the New York Giants is no different than last week's matchup against Arizona or the game before that against Miami. For that matter, Garrett said it is no different than the Oct. 23 game against the St. Louis Rams - never mind that first place is on the line and the winner controls its playoff destiny with three games left in the season. The Cowboys (7-5)

THE CINCINNATI Bengals have signed defensive end Carlos Dunlap to a 5-year contract extension worth $40 million. The Bengals announced the deal yesterday Dunlap's contract would have expired after this season, but it now runs through 2018. His agent, Drew Rosenhaus, says Dunlap gets $20 million over the first 2 years in a deal with incentives. The 6-6, 280-pound Dunlap is a fourth-year pro from Florida. He had 55 tackles and six sacks in 14 games last season. In a 20-13 victory over San Diego, he had two sacks and forced fumbles, and recovered one late in the game to preserve the victory.

AN NFL.COM preview of the 2014 season declared, "the defense is a massive worry in Dallas," and later asserted, "the Cowboys' defense could go from worst to collegiate. " The preview noted that, with yet another defensive coordinator aboard - Rod Marinelli replacing Monte Kiffin, who lasted 1 year after replacing Rob Ryan - "even the players that appear talented, like cornerbacks Morris Claiborne and Brandon Carr, were picked to fit a system that is long gone. " Claiborne ruptured a patellar tendon in September, joining sidelined defensive leader Sean Lee, the linebacker who tore an ACL in the offseason.

THERE IS ONE thing we think we know for sure about the Eagles and their possible pursuit of Marcus Mariota: Chip Kelly said last month he would "never mortgage our future to go all the way up to get somebody like that, because we have too many other holes. " Kelly's scenario assumes his former Oregon quarterback will be chosen at or near the top of the draft, which seems quite likely; both NFL Network analyst Mike Mayock and ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski said recently they would take Mariota over the widely presumed No. 1 overall pick, Florida State quarterback Jameis Winston.

I SHOULD have listened. The Eagles' defensive line was trying to tell us something during the week, when it refused to get all gushy over the Cowboys' much-lauded offensive line, the engine driving the NFL's No. 2 rushing attack. "The running back's having a good year running, but I don't see anything spectacular about them," nose tackle Bennie Logan said as the Dallas game approached. "Same offensive line we faced last year, and they have one new guy . . . They're OK linemen.

Most of us did not see this coming. Most of us, in fact, thought the Dallas Cowboys were headed in reverse, a team primed to fall flat on its face after three straight .500 seasons that concluded with defeats in winner-takes-the-division games against each of its NFC East rivals. Quarterback Tony Romo, 34, was getting too old and coming off back surgery that kept him out of the regular-season finale against the Eagles last season. Jason Garrett was first in line only when he was standing among the NFL's mediocre head coaches.

ATLANTIC CITY - If you want to know why the Eagles didn't sign high-priced, possible future Hall of Fame players such as Darrelle Revis, DeMarcus Ware, and Jairus Byrd, the answer was on the field last season. Chip Kelly has a system, and within the confines of the NFL salary cap, he and general manager Howie Roseman have spent the last two offseasons spearheading an effort to fill structured needs. Do Kelly and Roseman consider Revis, Ware, and Byrd great players? You bet they do. Do they think the three players would reach their full potential within the confines of the Eagles' defensive scheme?

ARLINGTON, Texas - They kept coming for Nick Foles on Sunday night - DeMarcus Ware and Jarius Wynn and George Selvie and Jason Hatcher, all of them collapsing the pocket, diving at Foles' feet, driving the Eagles' offensive line backward into his face. Everything has been so tidy and calm for Foles most of this season whenever he's dropped back. The Eagles had started the same five linemen in front of him and Michael Vick all season, had developed a cohesion that was supposed to seal Foles inside a cocoon and let him pick apart a defense that ranked dead last in the NFL. Dallas had used 20 defensive linemen this season entering Sunday, an absurd number, especially in a scheme that predicates its defensive success on pressuring the quarterback with four down linemen.

RESIST THE temptation to analyze this loss too deeply. Film review of the 17-3 setback to the Dallas Cowboys doesn't need to say anything more than "the Eagles lost because Nick Foles was terrible. " Period. Talk all you want, as Chip Kelly did yesterday, about the entire offense being "out of sync," or the fact that Dallas stuffed the run and brought pass-rush pressure even without DeMarcus Ware. (Swarm with enough people, you're going to stop the run, or at least slow it to a crawl.

A week after Cowboys cornerback Brandon Carr shut down Redskins receiver Pierre Garcon with man-to-man defense, there was the belief by some that he would shadow DeSean Jackson all day Sunday. He did not. But Carr covered the Eagles receiver for much of the game and helped hold Jackson to just three catches for 21 yards. Jackson was targeted eight times, but it should be noted that a number of the missed throws fell on the shoulders of Nick Foles and Matt Barkley. On one play in the third quarter, Foles missed a wide-open Jackson downfield.
