PHILADELPHIA -- In case anyone's wondering, the winner of the Cowboys-Eagles game will open the playoffs on the road in Minnesota. Right now, the Eagles seem to have a little more energy. And if Andy Reid will simply stick with the running game, Philadelphia should win this game.
I've been saying all season that Correll Buckhalter isn't properly utilized, and for one game, Reid's actually going to the reserve running back.
I thought left tackle Tra Thomas would have trouble with Cowboys outside linebacker DeMarcus Ware, but right now Ware's being handled pretty easily. On the incompletion to Jason Avant, tight end Brent Celek chipped Ware and then Thomas hit him again. Ware's depending too much on his speed right now and his outside path is putting him too deep to cause Donovan McNabb any trouble.
The other thing is that rookie DeSean Jackson is bouncing back from last Sunday's awful effort by making play after play.
And there's Buckhalter again to give the Eagles a 17-3 lead. Cowboys better do something in a hurry or this thing will get out of hand.
