The Dallas Cowboys have a new first-string quarterback, a new second-string quarterback and a new third-string quarterback for Sunday's game against the Eagles. And not one of them is named Troy Aikman. The Cowboys' new starter is Rodney Peete, who had sprained his right thumb in a 31-7 victory Nov. 20 over Washington. He took snaps at yesterday's practice without screaming in agony, so coach Barry Switzer said afterward that Peete would start for the first time this season.

EAGLES running back LeSean McCoy, who suffered an apparently minor knee injury in the season finale against the Giants, will not participate in the Jan. 25 Pro Bowl in Arizona, an NFL source confirmed. Also, wideout Jeremy Maclin and long snapper Jon Dorenbos were added. Maclin, a third alternate, replaces Denver's Demaryius Thomas. Dorenbos was added as a "need" player by coach Jason Garrett. Eagles named earlier were guard Evan Mathis, tackle Jason Peters, linebacker Connor Barwin, center Jason Kelce and returner Darren Sproles.

Jeff Hostetler and Vince Evans threw first-half touchdown passes to lead the Los Angeles Raiders to a 27-19 preseason victory over the Dallas Cowboys. Star running back Emmitt Smith did not play, and wide receiver Michael Irvin did not dress for the Cowboys, who dropped to 1-1. Quarterback Troy Aikman was 3 for 4 for 45 yards and ran 6 yards for a touchdown for Dallas. Hostetler and Evans were each 4 for 8 in the first half, which ended with Los Angeles (2-0) holding a 20-9 lead.

DALLAS - Jason Garrett gave the Dallas Cowboys a day off after his players somehow pulled off a win in Cincinnati while reeling from a one-car accident that killed one teammate and landed another in jail. Many players showed up at team headquarters anyway and there was Josh Brent, the hulking defensive tackle who missed the trip after police say he was driving drunk and caused the wreck that killed practice squad linebacker Jerry Brown, his close friend and roommate. Brent was back with his teammates again Tuesday for a private memorial honoring Brown.

THE COWBOYS are using drones to film their practice sessions from overhead. According to ESPN's Todd Archer, head coach Jason Garrett got the idea from SMU coach Chad Morris. "We pride ourselves on coaching and teaching our players as well as we can and film has been a big part of the game for a long time," Garrett said. "Typically you have an end-zone shot and a sideline shot. We use a lot of hand-held cameras on the ground . . . One of our coaches went down to SMU for their spring practices and saw they were using it. They liked the angle.

How do you turn around a glamour NFL team with grand expectations that finds itself flailing and playing apathetically? If you talk to Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett, the answer is simple. "The most important thing for any football team is just to come to work every day and work hard in your preparation, both in the meeting rooms and on the practice field. And hopefully that preparation carries to the game," Garrett said Wednesday as he spoke to Philadelphia reporters about Sunday's game against the Eagles.

ARLINGTON, Texas - Tony Romo is finally healthy, and now he's got a running game, too. Throw in an opportunistic defense and a kicker who hasn't missed since mid-September, and it's clear the Dallas Cowboys are headed in the right direction. Just ask the Buffalo Bills. Facing the best team he'll see for a month, Romo guided touchdown drives on his first four series, and Terence Newman returned one of his two interceptions for a touchdown, sending the Cowboys cruising past the Bills, 44-7, on Sunday.

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.

SAN FRANCISCO - Tony Romo felt sick to his stomach. It hurt to breathe, let alone bark out the cadence in a hostile road stadium. Playing with the throbbing pain from a fractured rib, Romo rallied America's Team just as he promised he would. In a week when Romo vowed to play his best game, he delivered a gutsy comeback that looked so unlikely when he briefly came out before halftime and then returned to the locker room. Moments after the Cowboys (1-1) announced the quarterback was done for the day, there came No. 9 ready to take charge of the huddle once again.

GREEN BAY, Wis. - While the debate as to what constitutes a catch in the NFL rages on, there were two clear and differing opinions on the controversial call Sunday that took a reception away from Dez Bryant in the Packers' 26-21 divisional playoff win over the Cowboys. The Cowboys thought Bryant had possession even though the ball briefly rattled in the wide receiver's hands after it hit the ground. "It was a catch," Bryant said. "It was a catch. " "It looked to me like he had three feet down," Dallas coach Jason Garrett said.

ARLINGTON, Texas - From the Eagles' standpoint, Lady Luck turned into a runaway bride before the Dallas-Indianapolis game even started Sunday, and it didn't get any better as the Cowboys won, 42-7, eliminating the Eagles from playoff contention. First, Indianapolis announced that wide receiver T.Y. Hilton would miss the game because of a hamstring injury. Then, the Colts had the Cowboys stopped on their first possession, but a taunting penalty by linebacker Jerrell Freeman kept the drive alive, leading to a Dallas touchdown.

ARLINGTON, Texas - The Eagles have faced Dallas quarterback Tony Romo enough to know what to expect - a swashbuckling escape artist who can avoid the rush and throw laser-accurate passes down the field. What they saw instead during yesterday's 33-10 thrashing of the Cowboys at AT&T Stadium wasn't even close. Romo, who has been battling a balky back all season, was wildly inaccurate, sailing throws high past open receivers and firing balls up for grabs at times. And, most shocking, they watched the normally elusive scrambler give himself up for sacks on two occasions.

The Dallas Cowboys have electrifying skill-position players in NFL rushing leader DeMarco Murray and wide receiver Dez Bryant. Dallas also is receiving an inspired season from quarterback Tony Romo, but a major reason the Cowboys are tied for the NFC East lead with the Eagles has been the play of the offensive line. Dallas is second in the NFL in rushing, averaging 150.1 yards per game, and yards per carry (4.9). Romo, who has thrown 22 touchdown passes and just six interceptions, is second in the NFL with a 111.4 passer rating.

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.

UNIVERSITY PARK, Texas - Deion Sanders was at Moody Coliseum on Thursday night, but the Temple Owls were not ready for prime time. With the Hall of Fame cornerback looking on - as were Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, Cowboys coach Jason Garrett, Mavericks center Samuel Dalembert, and Kansas City Chiefs chairman Clark Hunt - the Owls wilted under defensive pressure and lost, 75-52, to Larry Brown's Southern Methodist team. The defeat was the Owls' 10th in their last 11 games, and their second straight lopsided loss.

JON KITNA COULD have stayed home and watched this weekend's Eagles-Cowboys game from the couch in his Tacoma, Wash., home. Instead, it looks as if he will be on the sideline backing up probable starter Kyle Orton on Sunday night. He also could have cashed his NFL paycheck and used it to add a game room to his family's house. Instead, Kitna, who last played in the NFL in 2011, will be donating the $53,000 salary he'll be pocketing this week to Lincoln High School in Tacoma, where he is a math teacher and has served as the head football coach for the last 2 years.

IRVING, Texas - It's Groundhog Day again in North Texas. For the third consecutive season, the Dallas Cowboys head into the regular-season finale facing the same scenario - win and claim the NFC East title; lose and go home with a disappointing 8-8 record. Sunday's matchup with the Eagles will decide the division, a disturbingly familiar situation for the Cowboys, who in 2011 lost to the Giants and last year fell to Washington to miss the playoffs. But all that, the Cowboys insist, is in the past.
