PHILADELPHIA -- As we sit here an hour and 15 minutes before kickoff, it's 62 degrees at Lincoln Financial Field with 68 percent humidity. The winds blowing out of the southwest at 17 miles per hour and it's only going to get worse. It's shocking to arrive in Philly in late December and not need a jacket.

Both kickers are out with their special teams coaches attempting to measure the wind. As we speak, David Akers is nailing 50-yard field goals. Cowboys kicker Nick Folk is standing directly behind Akers trying to get a read on things.

Tony Romo's nowhere in sight, but Donovan McNabb is out throwing a series of out routes to wide receiver Jason Avant. McNabb just jogged to the opposite side of the field so he could throw into the wind. We bumped into Eagles wide receivers coach David Culley at the team hotel this morning. Culley, one of the nicest guys in the league, has remained close to Terrell Owens despite his ugly divorce with the Eagles.
