THE EAGLES wanted $15 million up front from Temple before they would allow the football team to play in the stadium. Temple is a school that is just developing its football program in the modern era.

How They Match Up Eagles offense vs. Cowboys defense Quarterback Donovan McNabb was sacked and fumbled on the opening play of the first meeting between the teams, and that was a sign of things to come for the Eagles in what ended up as a 38-17 Dallas rout, the Cowboys' most lopsided win in Philadelphia since the 1998 season. After running 19 plays for 113 yards and a touchdown during the next two series, the Eagles' offense ran 27 plays for 92 yards and a field goal on their next five series and fell behind, 35-10, after three quarters.
