In a winner-takes-all matchup for the NFC East, the Philadelphia Eagles (9-6) travel to Dallas to face the Cowboys (8-7) who will be without Tony Romo on Sunday Night Football at AT&T Stadium.

Game Time: 8:30 p.m. ET

TV: NBC

Online: Audio Pass | Game Rewind

Odds: Eagles -6.5

Will backup quarterback Kyle Orton, who must now start for the team after Romo had back surgery on Friday, prove Jerry Jones was right in paying $10 million to a backup by leading the Cowboys to an NFC East title? Will Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray be able to handle a likely increased workload and responsibility on offense for a Cowboys running game that has been successful but underutilized with Romo? Will the Cowboys defense that is getting ready to set records amongst the all-time worst defenses be able to keep their team in the game against one of the best offenses in the league led by quarterback Nick Foles and the league leader in rushing in LeSean McCoy? Use this as an Open Thread to discuss the action.
