The Eagles-Cowboys game Sunday was moved from 1 p.m. ET to 4:15 p.m. ET earlier today. It was a tough break for Andy Reid and the Eagles. Before their game begins, the Eagles will know whether the Raiders were able to knock off Tampa Bay.

Unless the Raiders can pull off the upset, the Eagles will only be playing for pride. We saw how they played against the Redskins when something was actually on the line. I realize how much the Eagles hate the Cowboys, but that's a tough emotional leap to make just before the game.

The Cowboys would never admit it, but they think they caught a huge break with the game being moved back. Asked if he'd rather not know the outcome of the game, Reid said, "Yeah, but that's probably not realistic in this day-in-age of technology. I said this before, you can't worry about all the different things that you can't control. You just have to go play, that's the important thing."
