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.

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.

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.

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.

(Teams listed in predicted order of finish) NFC EAST Washington Redskins Last season: 9-7 (Won division; lost to Green Bay in wild-card) Coach: Jay Gruden (13-19 in two seasons) Norman invasion: The Redskins were 25th in pass defense and went out and got Josh Norman from Carolina, the best available cornerback. When you share a division with Dez Bryant, Odell Beckham, and Paul Turner (a little sarcasm), having a shutdown corner is crucial. Outlook: If Sam Bradford was miffed when the Eagles drafted his replacement, imagine how Kirk Cousins feels.

Following the end of his six-year NFL career, Dan Connor joined West Chester University's football staff as a volunteer assistant in the spring of 2014. It took little time for Golden Rams boss Bill Zwaan to get a sense that the former Strath Haven and Penn State star linebacker had what it took to be a solid coach. "I was really impressed with the way he related to our college guys," Zwaan said. "He got the kids on board right away and got them to understand what he wanted them to do. " After two years as West Chester's linebackers and special-teams coach, Connor, who played at Strath Haven from 2000 to 2003, was announced as the new football leader at Archbishop Carroll on Thursday.

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.

IRVING, Texas - He may not be 100 percent yet, but the expected presence of two-time Pro Bowl receiver Dez Bryant should give the Dallas Cowboys' sluggish offense a boost when they host the Eagles Sunday at AT&T Stadium. Bryant suffered a broken foot in the season-opening 27-26 win over the New York Giants. He caught five passes for 48 yards before suffering the injury in the fourth quarter. Even without Bryant, the Cowboys beat the Eagles the next week, 20-10. The Cowboys (2-5) lost Tony Romo with a fractured clavicle that game and haven't won since.

The Dallas Cowboys have not won since Tony Romo suffered a broken collarbone in a Week 2 win over the Eagles, and the Cowboys' star quarterback must remain on the sideline when the Eagles and Cowboys meet again on Sunday in Arlington, Texas. Romo can return to practice this week, but his injured reserve designation keeps him out of the lineup until Nov. 22. The Cowboys have started both Brandon Weeden and Matt Cassel in Romo's place during a five-game losing streak. They will stick with Cassel when the Eagles visit Sunday.

NFC East Dallas Cowboys Last season: 12-4 (lost to Green Bay in a divisional playoff game). Coach: Jason Garrett (41-31, 6th season). Missing Murray? With the NFL's leading rusher DeMarco Murray now on the Eagles, Tony Romo, who had an NFL-leading 113.2 passer rating, may have to throw more, which might cut down on his effectiveness. Outlook: The Cowboys have to prove they can run the ball in Murray's absence and they are still below average defensively. There hasn't been a repeat NFC East champ since the Eagles won four in a row from 2001-2004, so recent history isn't on the Cowboys' side.

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.
