It’s early in Sunday night’s battle for NFC East supremacy, but we can guarantee the Eagles won’t win this one 44-6.
We can also guarantee there are a lot of nervous folks in both organizations after injuries to key offensive linemen during the first half.
Eagles starting left tackle Jason Peters went to the locker room to undergo x-rays on his ankle. Peters was writhing on the ground after the injury.
The Cowboys also lost a Pro Bowl lineman — center Andre Gurode has left the game with an undisclosed injury. As ESPN’s Chris Mortensen points out, Gurode is arguably the team’s best lineman and would be a major loss. We’ll update his status later in the night.
The Cowboys are leading 7-3 in a game that has featured a lot of pressure on both quarterbacks.
UPDATE: Peters amazingly is back in the game. Gurode is probable to return. So, um, ignore the paragraphs above. And discuss the game in the comments below.
