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.

  2 Cowboys tight end Jason Witten and quarterback Tony Romo failed to connect on just two pass attempts. On 10 tries, the combo completed eight passes for 47 yards.   6 The Eagles got six first downs thanks to Cowboys penalties.   29 Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant averaged 29 yards per catch on three catches for 87 yards.   3:56 The Cowboys had the ball for just 3 minutes, 56 seconds in the fourth quarter. Still, the Eagles managed just six points.

Les Bowen   COWBOYS OFFENSE vs. Eagles defense. That's where I see the root of the problem. How do you get Tony Romo off the field, so your offense has a chance to get into rhythm? If Sunday's Eagles defensive performance were the exception, maybe you'd have faith in Sean McDermott's ability to change the vibe in a 6-day span. But this is the same defense that gave up 512 yards to the Giants Dec. 13, that held opponents under Jim Johnson's old, cherished standard of 17 points or fewer only twice in the final nine games.

(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.

The NFL is so unpredictable and yet we still try to predict it, especially at this time of year when the countdown to training camp is so close. It is an impossible exercise in a high-speed collision sport. Just ask the Dallas Cowboys. They might have been good enough to win a second straight division title with Tony Romo last season, but they could barely win a game without him. Romo, after being limited to two complete games by a left collarbone that was fractured twice, is back and the Cowboys are again a popular pick to win the NFC East, the division that is unquestionably the most difficult to predict.

No lead seemed safe in Week 10 as one fantasy stud after another engaged in a mind-boggling exhibition of highlight-reel plays. Antonio Brown put an exclamation point on the Steelers' victory over the Browns by taking a Ben Roethlisberger pass 56 yards to the end zone. Yet, somewhat amazingly, that barely landed among the Top 10 scoring plays of the weekend. It wasn't even the longest pass play of the day for Big Ben, who also threw a 64-yarder to Martavis Bryant that didn't score.

THE EAGLES' defense is going to have to be dominant this week. I was a little disappointed at how that went at Carolina, thought the Panthers ran too easily and scored too many points against what we keep touting as a pretty formidable D. If Jason Peters can't go, or plays but is less than himself, it could be a really long night for the offense. In fact, as the week went on and it began to look less and less likely Peters would play, I really wavered on my early week decision to take the Eagles to win and to cover.

There's nothing fortunate about an NFL starter being lost to injury for part of the season. Not for the player, and usually not for the team. When inside linebacker Kiko Alonso was injured in the second game of the year against Dallas, an injury that would require arthroscopic surgery on his previously repaired left knee, the Eagles were forced to stick rookie Jordan Hicks into the fray and hope for the best. And that's exactly what they got. Hicks stepped in, played extremely well, and has turned what was a three-man rotation at inside linebacker into what will be a four-man rotation when everyone is healthy, which could be as soon as this Sunday.

JERRY JONES seemed to sense what was about to befall his team, when he spoke following the Dallas Cowboys' 20-10 victory over the host Eagles back on Sept. 20. The Cowboys' owner told reporters he felt "just about as low as a crippled cricket's ass," after learning quarterback Tony Romo had broken his left clavicle on a sack by Eagles rookie inside linebacker Jordan Hicks, with nine minutes, 44 seconds remaining in the third quarter. Dallas has lost all five of its games since that victory, first with Brandon Weeden at QB, then, starting last week against Seattle, with Matt Cassel.

It is an exaggeration to say that Sunday was the best day of the season for the Eagles, but only a slight one. As they sat through their bye week, which was kindly scheduled near the midpoint of the season, the Eagles watched one division rival score 49 points and lose, then watched another surrender just one touchdown and two field goals and also lose. The message should have been loud and clear: If you want to win the 10th NFC East title in franchise history, it is there for the taking.

Week 3 of the NFL season started Thursday night with an NFC East game that was almost as unwatchable as that penalty-filled, mistake-marred mess the Eagles and Cowboys staged four days earlier at Lincoln Financial Field. We did at least learn one thing from the New York Giants' 32-21 win over Washington at the same stadium where the Eagles will attempt to save their season Sunday against the New York Jets: Washington remains the team most likely to finish at the bottom of the NFC East.

JORDAN HICKS, the third-round rookie linebacker from Texas, didn't really picture himself chasing down and sacking Tony Romo with 9 minutes and 44 seconds remaining in the third quarter of yesterday's Eagles loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Hicks had played strictly on special teams in the season opener in Atlanta. With DeMeco Ryans, Kiko Alonso and Mychal Kendricks manning the two inside linebacking positions, there weren't any snaps for the rookie. Until Alonso suffered an injury to his repaired left knee, and Kendricks pulled up lame with a left hamstring strain, within a few minutes of the first half yesterday.

Tony Romo fractured his left clavicle Sunday in the Eagles' 20-10 loss to the Cowboys, and the Dallas quarterback could be sidelined when the division rivals meet again on Nov. 8. When he suffered the same injury in Week 7 of the 2010 season, he did not return for the rest of the year. Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers broke his collarbone in 2013 and missed seven games. The initial estimate is that Romo will miss eight to 10 weeks, according to ESPN. He is due for a CAT scan this week.
