Featured Game Week 8 - Dallas Cowboys At Philadelphia Eagles

     This is a big rivalry between 2 typical NFC east contenders. This season has been rocky for the Eagles and a loss here might just have them out of contention in the NFC east. As bad as their record would be this season the rest of the division isn't exactly running away and hiding so while losing this game isn't good, it isn't necessarily the terminal.

The Eagles came out and efficiently moved down the field for a TD on their opening possession. They earned a very respectable 30 PossessionPoints on the drive.

So far this looks like the Eagles people expected to see this season. After stopping the Cowboys on their first drive they marched 90 yards on their second drive and scored their second TD. The Eagles are already "Yellow" in PossessionPoints. If this keeps up this Sunday night game could be over early like last weeks game was. But we really don't expect the Cowboys to go quietly tonight.

The Eagles Defense got an interception and the Eagles offense marched down for their 3rd TD of the Game. The Eagles have looked unstoppable this game and the Cowboys have looked like they aren't even there. The Eagles are already "green" in PossessionPoints. This is perhaps the earliest we have seen a team turn "green" this season.

The Eagles are held to a field goal, the first sign that the Dallas defense can even slow the Eagles down a little.

For the second time the Cowboys kept the Eagles out of the end zone, but they didn't stop them from scoring. The Eagles chewed up 6 minutes of valuable clock and got a field goal. Time is running out for the Cowboys to wake up.

This is as one-sided a game as you will ever see in the NFL. The Eagles 233 PossessionPoints is "top dog" caliber. Our "top dog" award goes to the team that has the most PossessionPoints each week.

The Cowboys finally hit on a big play, so at least they won't be shut out. It is very doubtful that they could come back from this deficit especially since they have showed no ability to stop the Eagles.
