DeMarcus Ware says Eagles are still talented
By Calvin Watkins
IRVING, Texas -- The Philadelphia Eagles won't have Michael Vick, DeSean Jackson or LeSean McCoy in the rematch with the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night.
It still hasn't stopped Cowboys outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware from saying he's still impressed in what the Eagles have left on their roster.
"Regardless of who they don't have they're a talented team," Ware said after Friday's practice. "Philly is always working and always going to be that contender. We can't go into this game thinking, 'Hey certain guys aren't playing because that second guy is almost as good as that first guy.'"
In the first meeting, the Cowboys got a chance to see Nick Foles, who replaced Vick who was knocked out of the game with a concussion. Foles completed 22-of-32 passes for 219 yards with one touchdown and one interception in the loss.
Last season the Cowboys were swept by the Eagles in their two regular season meetings. A win Sunday would give the Cowboys a season-sweep, the first time they've done that since 2009 when Wade Phillips was the Cowboys coach and Donovan McNabb was the quarterback for the Eagles.
