It hasn’t been the shootout some were expecting, given the Eagles’ preferred pace and the Cowboys’ horrific defense.

But after the way today has gone, there’s little doubt it’s far from over.

The Eagles lead 10-0 early in the second quarter, with the last playoff berth on the line.

After an early DeMarco Murray fumble, the Eagles put a field goal on the board. But that almost counts as a stop the way the Cowboys are playing defense lately.

Cowboys quarterback Kyle Orton is playing efficiently, completing his first seven passes and keeping the clock moving. At this point, that gives them a chance, though he’ll need to hurry.

Nick Foles just hit LeSean McCoy for a quick touchdown pass, so the pressure’s on Orton to make a play soon.
