As we suspected, the Cowboys-Eagles game has been moved from 1 p.m. ET to 4:15 p.m. ET. With the Oakland-Tampa Bay game set for 1 p.m. ET, the Eagles should know before kickoff whether they're competing for the final wild-card playoff spot.
With the Raiders playing on the road in Tampa, the new kickoff time is good news for the Cowboys. No matter what Andy Reid might suggest, a Raiders loss will certainly take the wind out of his team's sails. It's pretty difficult to go from playoff hopeful to spoiler in such a short period of time. And even though they had more to play for than the Redskins on Sunday, it's not like it showed.
One more thing: Is anyone else sick of Donovan McNabb always saying the Eagles should've won? They can get drilled by 20 points, and he'll always roll out the "we were the better team" line.
The Eagles shouldn't have won Sunday. The Redskins outplayed them on both sides of the ball. Yes, they had a chance to tie the game at the end, but the Redskins earned that win. To argue otherwise is foolish.
