On the third of the Eagles' four sacks in a Thanksgiving beating of Dallas, Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo simply fell to the ground before Brandon Graham could take joy in putting him there. Romo, who is one of the most mobile quarterbacks the Eagles will face this season, did not try to scramble or spin. He surrendered. Both teams were playing with only three days between games. Romo has been dealing with a back injury this season and did not have the amount of time between games that he usually takes.

WHEN THE EAGLES lost to the Cowboys back on Oct. 20, there were two key figures. One was Nick Foles. You might have heard about that. Worst of his now-15 career starts, in terms of yards, as he completed 11 of 29 passes for 80, before sitting down with a concussion. Only Foles' first career start, back on Nov. 18, 2012, at the Redskins, was worse in terms of passer rating (40.5 vs. 46.2). The other key player on the field that day was Sean Lee. The Dallas middle linebacker from Penn State was credited with a game-high nine solo tackles and an interception of rookie quarterback Matt Barkley, who took over for Foles.

The scenario is as grim as it gets for Eagles fans. Their favorite team will go into Texas Stadium tomorrow locked in last place in the NFC East. Their least favorite team, the hated Dallas Cowboys, has already locked up the division title for the first time since 1998 and has a legitimate chance to go 15-1, an accomplishment that would be getting far more attention if the New England Patriots weren't trying to become the first 16-0 team in NFL history. For the record, only four teams in history - San Francisco in 1984, Chicago in 1985, Minnesota in 1998, and Pittsburgh in 2004 - have finished 15-1.

Thanksgiving was so two and half weeks ago, especially for the quarterbacks in Sunday's Eagles-Cowboys game.

Tony Romo's three turnovers were momentarily meaningless last night when some of his Dallas teammates started yelling in the shower after the Cowboys quarterback collapsed because of the pain from a rib injury. Athletic trainer Jim Maurer and his staff rushed into the shower as the visitors' locker room at Lincoln Financial Field came to a near standstill. Romo was helped to his feet and taken into the training room. When asked later what happened, Romo said, "Um, you know, I was just a little banged up, I guess.

Tony Romo didn't have to wait until the offseason to get his big payday from the Dallas Cowboys after all. Romo has agreed to a 6-year, $67 million deal that will be announced today, according to a person familiar with the deal who requested anonymity because the contact has not been announced. The contract, which will become effective this week and provides salary cap relief for Dallas, includes $30 million in guaranteed money. "It's a great feeling you have when the organization and the people stand behind you, and you can be the quarterback for a long, long time," Romo said.

IF YOU'RE A Patriots fan who scored tickets for the season opener against the visiting Steelers - a nationally televised Thursday night game on Sept. 10 - you're probably not too happy. Because instead of seeing Tom Brady under center for the defending Super Bowl champions, you'll likely get Jimmy Garoppolo. Yesterday, Brady was suspended the first four games of the season for his role in Deflategate. After the Steelers, the Patriots play the Bills in Buffalo, the Jaguars in Foxboro, Mass., and the Cowboys in Arlington, Texas.

IT MIGHT NOT have been Jack Youngblood on a broken leg in Super Bowl XIV, but it was something like it. Aaron Rodgers passed for 316 yards and three touchdowns and compiled a 125.4 passer rating in the Packers' divisional playoff win Sunday over the Cowboys. Unofficially, that is the best performance in NFL playoff history by a one-legged quarterback. Rodgers played with a torn muscle in his left calf. Tony Romo had a chance to validate his MVP candidacy over Rodgers' on Sunday.

Despising the Dallas Cowboys never really goes out of vogue around here. The needle on the hate-o-meter just fluctuates based on how well or poorly the team that Jerry Jones bought is playing. With the Cowboys having already dethroned the Eagles as NFC East champions and set to play in an NFC divisional playoff game in Green Bay on Sunday, this is obviously a time in which the needle is tilting to the far right. Speaking of the right, Gov. Christie, a lifelong lover of the Cowboys despite being a lifelong resident of the less-vegetative northern end of the Garden State, has added a unique twist to the Dallas disdain.

TOM BRADY isn't worried about the predicted sub-freezing temperatures he will face when the Patriots host the Ravens in Foxborough, Mass., tomorrow. Game-time temperature for the AFC divisional playoff is expected to be 16 degrees. When asked by Comcast New England how he'll prepare for the cold, the Patriots quarterback - wearing a ski mask that covered all but his eyes and nose - replied: "I know exactly what to wear. I know how many layers to wear every degree. I'm a [bleeping]

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.

WHEN THE Cowboys were going good in mid-November, we all said the same thing. Wait until December. They will fall apart as usual. DeMarco Murray can't hold up to that kind of workload. Tony Romo will get hurt and or try to win the game on his own. The owner will say something dumb, there will be a sense of palpable disharmony or mutiny, and we will all gleefully greet each other over the holiday season as usual, secure in the knowledge that, despite our own team's chances, Dallas' were worse.

It took the third Dez Bryant touchdown for Bill Davis to spare Bradley Fletcher further abuse and put Cary Williams exclusively on the Cowboys receiver. By that point, the Eagles were down, 35-27, and there was less than 11 minutes left in Sunday's game. Dallas quarterback Tony Romo threw only three more passes the rest of the way and the damage had already been done in an Eagles loss. Davis said he didn't think of making the move until he felt it was time to make it - after Fletcher was beaten for the last time and his technique wasn't sound.

WHAT SHOULD you take from Chip Kelly's declaration yesterday that Bradley Fletcher will remain a starting cornerback? Seemingly, the Eagles have resigned themselves to not having any better options, 14 games into the season. If they thought there was a move to make, they would have made it weeks ago. They were not surprised by what happened against Dallas. They were just crossing their fingers and hoping it wouldn't happen, through an effective pass rush, a sore-backed Tony Romo, or some combination thereof.

THE EAGLES were down 7-0 after a blink. They were down 21-0 in points and 167-0 in yards after about 3 minutes of the second quarter. Chip Kelly's plan, whatever it had been, was no longer. The plan was on fire. The season was on life support. And Mark Sanchez was on stage. For better or worse, it was his moment. The Eagles did not want to put the game into his hands. You know that, even though they would never admit it. They wanted this to be a LeSean McCoy game, one in which they re-established their dominance on the ground and had the Hippocratic oath tattooed on Sanchez's forehead.
