It is no secret that the Dallas Cowboys are a much stronger team today than they were a month ago, when they beat the Eagles at Veterans Stadium. The Cowboys now include Michael Irvin, the playmaking wide receiver; a healthier Emmitt Smith; and an offensive line that has never been in better shape this season. But the Cowboys' defense is the one major, undeniably huge problem standing between the Eagles and an upset victory Sunday at Texas Stadium. Defense carried Dallas through the first five weeks of the season, and today that defense is statistically awesome.

Cowboys owner Jerry Jones filed a $750 million suit against the NFL in federal court in New York yesterday, accusing the league of blocking teams from conducting their own marketing. The suit asked the court, under federal antitrust laws, to dismantle what it called "the unlawful cartel" used by the NFL in marketing its trademarks and logos. In September, the league and NFL Properties sued Jones and the Cowboys for $300 million over his recent private marketing deals with Nike, Pepsi and American Express.

AT & T has become the latest corporate sponsor of Texas Stadium, setting up another potential fight between the NFL and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. Financial terms of the three-year deal were not disclosed. When Jones announced the deal yesterday, he said it was not a slap at the NFL but rather an attempt to show the benefits to other NFL teams of aggressive individual marketing. "We have adhered to every NFL guideline," Jones said. "We are hoping this could serve as an example of how to make things like this work.

THREE MONTHS ago, I would have told you that a 10-point spread in favor of Dallas against the Eagles was ridiculous, that Donovan McNabb would put TDs on the board against this secondary, that Jim Johnson would find a way to confuse Tony Romo, the way he did at Texas Stadium last Christmas. An awful lot has happened in those 3 months. Now, this looks almost like last month's New England game, going in, except the Eagles really don't have the chance to save their season anymore, as they tried to do that night in Foxborough.

The NFL finally gave Cowboys owner Jerry Jones the response he wanted for his deal with Nike: Just do it. The NFL and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones yesterday settled their dueling lawsuits over licensing and marketing deals. The league filed a $300 million lawsuit against Jones in September 1995, claiming he entered into licensing and sponsorship arrangements that violated NFL revenue-sharing policies, including deals with Pepsi, Nike, Dr Pepper, American Express and AT&T.

Jerry Jones smiled when he learned the Eagles will be blaring tapes of crowd noise at their practices this week. For Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, that was a good sign. It meant the Eagles expect the crowd to be a factor in Sunday's NFC semifinal playoff game at Texas Stadium. Home-field advantage, they call it. It didn't always exist at Texas Stadium, at least not to the extent that it did in other NFL cities, such as Denver and Philadelphia. Jones has been trying to pump up the volume at Cowboys home games ever since he bought the franchise in 1989.

IRVING, Texas - Texas Stadium isn't one of the great sporting venues of all time, but it is one of the nation's most famous. The Cowboys went to Super Bowls in four of the first eight years they played here, and the heroics of "Captain Comeback" Roger Staubach forged the America's Team legend in the '70s. For the final game, the stage was set for another great comeback. With 6 minutes, 30 seconds to go, the Baltimore Ravens, making their first Texas Stadium visit right at closing time, held a 19-10 lead.

When learning that their barnstorming tour included a stop in Dallas, members of the Barrage discussed ways to show their disdain of Texas Stadium's primary tenant. The photo op on the midfield star fell through when practically everyone left their Eagles jerseys at home. Instead, Philadelphia settled for avoiding an upset loss to a New York team in Irving last night with an 18-12 Major League Lacrosse victory over the Long Island Lizards. Matt Striebel, Michael Springer and Seth Goldberg each scored four goals as the two-time champion Barrage remained undefeated (2-0)

Are Dallas Cowboys fans beginning to lash back at their wayward team? Fans might be showing their disapproval of Dallas's on- and off-field woes by taking their time buying tickets for Saturday's wild-card game against the Minnesota Vikings. Under 1,000 seats remained when ticket windows closed Tuesday and none was sold yesterday because of the holiday. If any tickets are unsold as of close of business today, the game won't be televised locally - something that hasn't happened in years.

YOU TRY to explain to people what it was like, in the days before the coach only talked into a microphone on a podium and the trainer was forbidden to answer questions about injuries and every interaction with, well, with everybody on the team had a chance to be videotaped by another media outlet or by the team itself. It was a time when newspaper reporters had only one deadline a day, and when news that you broke stayed broken for 24 hours, not until the next tweet. It was a time when Buddy Ryan was the Eagles' head coach, and when a game wasn't memorable if it didn't have a nickname.

SAN ANTONIO, Texas - If history means anything - and usually it does in the NFL - the New York Giants are the obvious NFC East favorites. If size doesn't matter, especially at wide receiver, Philadelphia is your pick. As for the Dallas Cowboys, the year to pick them to win it all was 2008. That's when HBO's cameras monitored every training-camp snap, when Magic Johnson offered the team an inspirational speech, and when a 13-3 season from 2007 had many prognosticators wondering exactly whom Dallas would face in Super Bowl XLIII.

Baltimore scored fourth-quarter touchdowns on two long runs by Willis McGahee and Le'Ron McClain to turn back the Dallas Cowboys, 33-24, last night. McGahee broke loose for a 77-yard score 18 seconds after a Dallas touchdown, and McClain bolted 82 yards to put it out of reach, again just 18 seconds after a Dallas touchdown. The Ravens led by 16-7 after three periods, but matched Dallas point for point in a wild fourth quarter in which each team scored two touchdowns and a field goal.

Brad Johnson's aim was off and the boobirds were roaring at Texas Stadium. Somehow, the Dallas Cowboys pulled out of their midseason slump anyway. Johnson made up for several missed chances at touchdowns by throwing one to newcomer Roy Williams at the end of a drive sustained by four defensive penalties, and the much-maligned Dallas defense made it hold up for a 13-9 victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers yesterday afternoon. "Losing was not an option," Cowboys receiver Terrell Owens said.

The last time the Pittsburgh Steelers encountered a team from the NFC East, they ran into the Eagles' buzzsaw defense, which recorded nine sacks, three turnovers and a safety. The Steelers lost, 15-6. Pittsburgh (5-1) gets another chance at an NFC East team Sunday, hosting the New York Giants (5-1) in the marquee game of the week. The two teams love to run the football, and whichever does it the best will be able to control the game and turn it over to its very capable defense.

IRVING, Texas - They spliced together all the highlight reels, handed out whoopee cushions, greased the pigs, and said goodbye to Monday Night Football at Texas Stadium last night. Sure there was a full moon. It must have been hung on orders from the network executives. In this rivalry, in this stadium, where placekicks have been muffed, fumbles have bounced the wrong way, bodies have been bagged, and unforgettable games have been unfurled by both sides, this one was an apt coda to that discordant 30-year symphony.

The Eagles have seen what they can do in Texas Stadium, and they believe they can do it again tonight. "This is like the Monday night game of the 2008 season," guard Shawn Andrews said Saturday. "I can't wait until after we get that W to go home and watch it again. I'm going to act as if I was not at the game, and I'm going to watch it with my turkey burger and my chips and my water. " That's about as confident as you can be going into a road game against the Dallas Cowboys, a team that is the Las Vegas favorite to represent the NFC in this season's Super Bowl.

It is appropriately ostentatious, the monstrous steel, concrete and glass dream of Jerry Jones' that sits on a huge expanse of dirt between Dallas and Fort Worth. Like the Dallas Cowboys' owner, the new stadium that next year will house America's Team is bold, innovative, unique, controversial and staggeringly expensive. Nearly 20 years after he paid more than anyone thought the Cowboys franchise was worth, Jones is building a $1.1 billion stadium with a mix of public and private funds in Arlington that has two quarter-of-a-mile arches, a retractable roof, 300 club suites, a 60-yard overhead HD video board and a capacity for football that could exceed 80,000.

It's just another game. That's essentially what quarterback Donovan McNabb told us as the Eagles prepared for tomorrow night's Monday Night Football showdown with the Dallas Cowboys at Texas Stadium. "This is just a normal game for us," McNabb said. "You get excited . . . to play on Monday night, but that's about it. " Just another game? Oh, sure, and Sarah Palin is just another governor. That's probably the last thing Eagles fans wanted to hear from the franchise quarterback days before a game against a hated NFC East rival that won 13 games and a division title a year ago. McNabb, however, is absolutely correct.
